Determine anti human cytomegalovirus antibodies (IgM, IgG) and heat shock protein 70 in aborted women


Background: The aim of the study was to identify cytomegalovirus antibodies (IgM, IgG), heat shock protein 70 and to affect contact with animals on aborted women. This is Iraq’s first study, no other studies to determine the relationship between CMV infection and HSP70 concentration in aborted women have been conducted. Method: During the duration from July to December (2018), 160 blood samples were obtained from women suffering from repeated embryo predictions, which were used by reviewers in privatelaboratories in the province of Basrah, Iraq to estimate the levels of cytomegalovirus (IgM, IGg) and heat shock protein 70. Result: The results showed that level IgM had higher rates in age (26-30) year at a rate of 26.7% with significantn difference compared to other age groups, whereas level IgG had higher rates in age (31-35 & 36-40) at rate of 100%. Also we found in this results significant relationship between IgM and primary abortion at rate 16.7% in the age group (26-30). But the results show that IgG had a higher rat in the age group (31-35) at rate 68.1% with significant diffrents compared with Primary abortion woman. In addition, the study showed that HSP70 concentration in aborted women was high rate of 38% and a higher concentration show in the 4th age group at rate of 56.3% in 320 ng/ml concentration. The study showed also that HSP70 concentration in aborted women was high rate of 38% and a higher concentration show in the 4th age group at rate of 56.3% in 320 ng/ml concentration, also we found that two and more abortions had the highest rate of 62 %, with significant differences relative to other abortions. The study also showed that aborted poultry breeders women were 42.6% higher with significant difference compared to other groups. Conclusion: Observed that the first age group is more vulnerable to HCMV infection during pregnancy in thistudy relationship between HSP70 and Poultry Breeders with abortion, too.
