Previously, this type of study was appointed only in complicated pregnancy or when it detects the symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).Now this analysis has acquired binding and is assigned to the polls every pregnant woman is issued on the account.
What is PCR diagnostics ?This laboratory study conducted by polymerase chain reaction that allows you to diagnose various diseases of the female reproductive system, especially the spectrum of STDs.
indication for this analysis are:
- long infertility (in order to determine its causes);
- planning to become pregnant and pregnancies;
- pregnancy occurs with complications;
- suspected acute phase or chronic phase of STDs;
- chronic inflammation in the genitourinary system (to determine its causes);
- determine the sensitivity of microflora to antibiotics (administered with bakposeve microflora), as well as to monitor the effectiveness of the assigned antibiotic therapy.
Through PCR analysis was successfully carried out the identification of
PCR diagnosis (smear) - the only laboratory method for accurate diagnosis of many infectious diseases in the early stages of their development, which has the highest reliability of the results!The analysis carried out by PCR, quickly and accurately identify even hidden infections, which are difficult to diagnose.Hidden they are called because they have the ability for a long time hiding in the body, thus hampering the detection of disease causing these intracellular bacteria and parasites.
Laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases during the childbearing is particularly important because we are talking about the possibility of infection of the fetus.Tests for TORCH complex (toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, herpes, rubella, and mycoplasmosis and chlamydia) in our time are mandatory for every expectant mother.Diagnosis of the above diseases the child is still possible during its intrauterine development!To do this, take the analysis of amniotic fluid (amniocentesis) or chorionic villi, for further analysis by PCR diagnostics .Serological tests are not effective in this case, since they are all based on the detection of antibodies to the above infections, and the formation of a child's immune system begins only a few months after his birth.And during intrauterine life or the child did not develop antibodies, or borrows them from the mother.
