Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the activity of a local inflammatory process and the immune response in women of reproductive age with infertility and chronic inflammatory diseases of reproductive areas in clinical remission. The content of TNF-?, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IFN-?, MCP-1, circulating immune complexes in the peritoneal fluid was determined. It has been revealed that in the mechanisms of infertility arising amid chronic inflammatory disease of reproductive sphere important role plays activation the local inflammatory process, as evidenced by the significant increase in the concentrations of biological substances with pro-inflammatory activity (TNF-?, IL-6, MCP-1), inducers of an immune response (IL-4 and IFN-?), markers of cellular destruction, autoantibodies to antigens of native DNA and levels of the integral index of activation of humoral immune system - circulating immune complexes in peritoneal fluid. The activation of the local immuno-inflammatory process in clinical remission of chronic inflammatory disease of reproductive sphere is a significant factor in the emergence and development of infertility.
