Elkaffas, "Use of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin assay as a diagnostic tool for prelabor rupture of membranes.", The journal of maternal-fetal & neonatal medicine : the official journal of the European Association of Perinatal Medicine, the Federation of Asia and Oceania Perinatal Societies, the International Society of Perinatal Obstetricians, vol. 32, issue 12, pp. 1965-1970, 2019. Abstract

PURPOSE: The study aimed at assessment of the accuracy of the β-hCG test in vaginal washing fluid for diagnosis of prelabor rupture of membranes (PROM).

PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two groups of pregnant women from 17 to 38 weeks of gestation were recruited. The first group (PROM group) included 50 pregnant women with unequivocal PROM. The other group included 50 pregnant women with intact membranes. A sterile speculum examination was performed. If less than 5 cc was collected or no fluid found, 10 cc sterile saline was sprinkled on the vaginal wall and 5 cc were recollected in a sterile syringe. Two drops of collected fluid were used for qualitative testing of β-hCG. The remaining fluid was used for quantitative assessment of β-hCG.

RESULTS: The quantitative β-hCG test results were significantly higher in PROM group (median and range: 138.5 (23-475) versus 13 (1-55); the difference in medians and 95% CI: 105 (91-166); p value: <.001). The qualitative β-hCG test was positive in 42/50 (84%) of the PROM group, while it was negative in 50/50 (100%) of the intact membranes group. Areas under receiver operating characteristics (AUC) for both the quantitative and qualitative β-hCG tests were high (0.97, 95% CI: 0.91-0.99, p value: <.001 and .92, 95% CI: 0.84-0.96, p value: <.001, respectively). The suggested cut-off of β-hCG for the quantitative test was 32 mIU/ml. The sensitivity of quantitative and qualitative tests are: 94, 95% CI: 83.5-98.7% and 84, 95% CI: 70.9-92.8%, respectively. The specificity of quantitative and qualitative tests are: 94, 95% CI: 83.5-98.7% and 100, 95% CI: 92.9-100%, respectively.

CONCLUSION: β-hCG test (either quantitative or qualitative) in vaginal washing fluid can be used in the diagnosis of PROM in both preterm and term cases.

Rabbit viral haemorrhagic disease (RVHD) is a highly contagious, highly fatal, peracute and acute viral disease of both wild and domestic rabbits caused by rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV). Testing for haemagglutination activity (HA) in processed liver samples is one of the cornerstones for rapid diagnosis of RHDV outbreaks in national rabbitries. However, RHDV isolates exhibiting no HA activity are increasingly being reported. The extent of deviation from classical HA activity patterns for RHDV strains in Egypt has not been investigated. This study compared the HA activity patterns of samples collected from 61 RHDV outbreaks that occurred between 1999 and 2005 to determine whether dependence on HA test (HAT) for diagnosis of RHDV outbreaks needs to be reviewed. All samples were confirmed RHDV positive using sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and western blotting. Using slide HAT, only 36.1% of samples were positive (22 samples). Plate HAT conducted at 4?C detected an additional 16 positive samples bringing the total HA-positive samples to 38 (62.3%). Plate HAT conducted at 22?C failed to detect additional positive samples. The majority of samples detected after plate HA testing (62.5%) had HA titres comparable to those obtained from slide-HA-positive samples, indicating that the difference in HA activity is dependent on the nature of the HA antigen rather than its presence. Direct detection of HA activity failed in 37.7% of samples despite the presence of classical signs, pathology, and being reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) positive for three different VP60 regions. Experimental infection of seronegative rabbits with 9 HA negative RHDV samples showed that 5 isolates were in-fact HA positive, while only 4 isolates remained HA negative. The increased detection of viruses lacking HA activity and the low HAT sensitivity mandates the use of molecular techniques for rapid confirmation of RHDV diagnosis in the Egyptian environment.
