Blood test for ectopic pregnancy29th October 2010
Scientists are developing a blood test for ectopic pregnancies which could help save the fertility of thousands of women.
The test would enable the life-threatening condition to be diagnosed within a day, instead of the several weeks it takes for tests to come back now and allow doctors to intervene earlier to save reproductive organs which are often damaged by the condition. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said the test, which should be available within the next two to five years, would be "potentially useful for making an earlier diagnosis".
