Final Report - PIBF (Towards new diagnostic standards - Development of a Protein Based Diagnostic Assay and of a Novel Anti-Abortion Drug Target)

Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the PIBF project whose objective was to develop a single, inexpensive in vitro immunodiagnostic assay kit for the measurement of the protein called Progestrone induced blocking factor (PIBF) in urine and blood samples that can be potentially used in the diagnostics of pathological pregnancy and cancer. The report shows that earlier studies revealed that the concentration of PIBF in the urine and blood of healthy pregnant women increases during pregnancy and decreases rapidly during delivery. The report summarises the objectives and outcomes of the project before delving in to expand on the actions and outcomes in more detail.
