Incidence of anti-zona pellucida and anti-sperm antibodies among infertile Jordanian women and its relation to mycoplasmas

Al Daghistani H.I. and Fram K.M.    

Abstract: Anti-zona-pellucida autoantibodies [AZP-Ab] and anti-sperm isoantibodies [ASA] were assessed in the cervical secretions from 73 infertile Jordanian women and 41 fertile control women using latex agglutination. Significantly more women with infertility had AZP-Ab and ASA [16.4% and 8.2% respectively] compared with fertile women [9.4% and 0%], with no relation to the etiology of infertility. Using polymerase chain reaction Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum were detected in cervical secretions of 19.2% and 13.7% of infertile women, and the presence of mycoplasma was significantly correlated with the presence of AZP-Ab and ASA.
