Abstract

Abstract: Toxoplasmosis is a wide spread disease in our society,moreover it plays an important role in causation of abortion in pregnant women. The present study was carried out to evaluate the role of Heat Shock Protein-70(HSP-70) in the immune response against infection with Toxoplasma gondii among women with abortion. The present study was carried out on(35) women ,all of them having abortion and proved by confirmatory tests that they have an active form of toxoplasma infection. It also included twenty apparently healthy women as a control group . The patients were between 15 to 50 years of age, blood samples were collected from them during the period between May 2010 to May 2011. The Cytokines that were measured among studied groups by ELISA technique included HSP-70,Interleukin-10(IL10) , Gamma Interferon(IFNγ) and Interleukin-12(IL-12), thereafter cytokines were remeasured after receiving complete course of treatment. The study showed a high significant increase in serum level of HSP-70 in patients with IgM seropositivity (4.138pg/ml) when compared with serum levels in control and post treated groups (1.990pg/ml , 1.015pg/ml) respectively.It was also found that there was a concomitant increase in serum level of HSP-70 and serum level of both IFNγ and IL-12 in the early stage of acute infection (19.023, 81.292) respectively.

الخلاصه: مرض داء المقوسات من الامراض الواسعة الانتشار في مجتمعاتنا ،علاوة على كونه يلعب دورا مهما في احداث الاسقاط لدى النساء الحوامل. اجريت هذه الدراسه لمعرفة دور (Heat Shock Protein-70 (HSP-70 في الاستجابه المناعيه ضد هذا المرض لدى النساء اللاتي عانين اسقاطا. تضمنت تلك الدراسه جمع عينات من دم (35( من اولئك المرضى والذي ثبت مختبريا اصابتهن بهذا المرض كما تم جمع عينات من (20) من النساء الاصحاء كمجموعه ضابطه، تراوحت اعمار من شملتهم تلك الدراسه مابين 15-50 سنه وللفتره مابين مايس 2010 و مايس 2011 وقد تم قياس مستوى HSP-70 في مصل اولئك المرضى والمجموعة الضابطه بالاضافه الى قياس مستوى السايتوكاين العاشر((Interleukin-10،السايتكاين الثاني عشر (IL-12 ) والكاما انتفيرون( Gamma Interfeon ,IFNγ ) واخيرا تم قياسهن بعد اخذ العلاج اللازم. اظهرت نتائج تلك الدراسه زياده وبصوره معنويه في مستوى ال( HSP-70 ) في دم اولئك المرضى(pg/ml 4.138 ) في المراحل المبكره من الاصابه عند مقارنتها لمستواه في المجموعه الضابطه ومجموعة المرضى بعد اخذهم العلاج اللازم ( pg/ml1.015, 1.990pg/ml ) وعلى التوالي ،كما تبين بان الزياده في مستوى HSP-70 ترافق مع الزياده الحاصله في مستوى ( IL-12 & IFNγ ) في المراحل المبكره للمرض (pg/ml 81.2 ; 19.023 pg/ml ) وعلى التوالي.

Abstract

The present study was carried out to evaluate the role of T-helper-17 through measuring serum level of IL-17 in infection with Toxoplasma gondii among women with abortion. The present study was carried out on(35) women patients ,all of them having abortion and proved by confirmatoy tests that they have an active form of toxoplasma infection. It also included twenty apparently healthy women as a control group . The patients were between 15 to 50 years of age, they were attending AL-Zahraa Maternity and Child Teaching Hospital, AL-Hakeem Hospital and some private clinics, in Najaf governorate during the period between May 2010 to May 2011. The Cytokines that were measured by ELISA technique were Interleukin-17(IL17),Interleukin-10(IL10) and Gamma Interferon(IFNγ). The study showed a high significant increase in serum level of IL-17 in patients with IgM seropositivity (266.589pg/ml) when compared with serum levels in control and post treated groups (54.875pg/ml,54.182pg/ml) respectively, whereas there was no significant differences in serum levels between those with seropositivity with both IgM and IgG and levels in post treated and control groups. The role T-helper-17 in the immune response against toxoplasmosis was studied in the current infection, it was found that there was a concomitant increase of IL-17 with the increase of T-helper-1 cytokine.

اجريت الدراسه الحاليه لتقييم دور( T-helper-17) من خلال قياس مستوى الانترلوكين السابع عشر (Interleukin-17) في مصل الدم والغايه المتوخاة من ذلك هو لمعرفة الاستجابه المناعيه ضد مرض داء المقوسات لدى النساء اللاتى عانين اسقاطا ، تضمنت تلك الدراسه جمع عينات من دم (35) من اولئك المرضى و (20) من النساء الاصحاء كمجموعه ظابطه ، تراوحت اعمار من شاركت في تلك الدراسه مابين 15-50 سنه من النساء الوافدات الى مستشفى الولاده والاطفال التعليمي في النجف ،مستشفى الحكيم العام وبعض العيادات الخاصه وللفتره مابين مايس 2010 ومايس 2011 وقد تم قياس مستوى السايتوكاينات الاتيه Interleukin-17,Interleukin-10) Gamma Interferon ) في مصول دم اولئك المرضى والمجموعه الضابطه اضافة الى اعاده قياسها لمجموعه المرضى يعد اخذ العلاج اللازم.اظهرت تلك الدراسه زياده وبصوره معنويه في مستوى الانترلوكين السابع عشر( pg/ml 266.589) في دم اولئك المرضى في المراحل المبكره من الاصابه عند مقارنتها للمستوى في المجموعه الضابطه ومجموعه المرضى بعد اخذهم العلاج اللازم (54.182pg/ml, 54.875pg/ml) وعلى التوالي
