Advances in the diagnosis of first-trimester pregnancy problems

, : Advances in the diagnosis of first-trimester pregnancy problems. American Family Physician 44(5 Suppl): 15s-30s

Prompt diagnosis of problems in the first trimester of pregnancy is facilitated by ultrasound scanning and quantitative serum human chorionic gonadotropin and progesterone testing. When used appropriately, these tests can determine whether a patient has a normal early pregnancy, a miscarriage, a missed abortion, an ectopic pregnancy or a hydatidiform mole.

Styrene is one of the most important organic chemicals used worldwide. In humans, styrene metabolism involves oxidation by cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (CYPs) to styrene-7,8-oxide, an epoxide thought to be responsible for the genotoxic effects...
