Objective. To elaborate diagnostic criteria for chronic endometritis by the mRNA expression profile in the endometrium during the implantation window.
Subjects and methods. Thirty-three patients with tuboperitoneal infertility were examined and divided into 2 groups: 1) 15 women, whose histological examination of endometrial scrapings in the proliferation phase revealed plasma cells; 2) 18 women, in whom no plasma cells were detected. The endometrial mRNA expression for 39 genes (markers for growth factors, cytokines, surface markers for immune system cells, matrix metalloproteinases, homeobox genes, transcription factors, estrogen and progesterone receptors) during the window of implantation was analyzed.
Results. The mid-secretory phase expression of VEGFA mRNA with a sensitivity of 64% and a specificity of 89% was associated with the presence of plasmocytes in Phase 1 of the menstrual cycle. The mid-secretory phase endometrium in the presence of plasmocytes showed increases in VEGFA mRNA by 1.7 times, VEGFA189 by 2.4 times, IGFBP1 by 16.6%, and CD68 by 2 times and also a 1.5-fold reduction in IL-2 mRNA expression compared with the patients having no plasmocytes.
Conclusion. The findings allowed the authors to elaborate diagnostic criteria for chronic endometritis in the mid-secretory phase by the VEGFA mRNA level during the window of implantation.
