16) Other stains like [alpha]-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin, carcinoembryonic antigen, S100 protein, vimentin, epithelial membrane antigen, leukocyte common antigen, neuron-specific enolase, and human placental lactogen are not demonstrable in spermatocytic seminoma.
Recently, placental mRNAs, such as human placental lactogen (PL) and some other hormones were detected in maternal plasma, and concentrations of each marker were measured with quantitative real-time reverse transcription (RT)-PCR (3, 4).
To find an early single marker for EP, several studies have measured placental markers (pregnancy-associated plasma protein A, serum-specific protein-1, human placental lactogen, and leukemia-inhibiting factor) and nonplacental proteins (glycodelin and vascular endothelial growth factor) and compared results for women with an EP with those for women with an intrauterine pregnancy (IUP) (8-10).
The authors of a previously reported microarray study reported that human placental lactogen (hPL) is highly expressed in both first- and third-trimester placental tissues, whereas human chorionic gonadotropin [beta]-subunit ([beta]hCG) is produced mainly in first-trimester placentas (4).
1A) and a placenta-specific mRNA, human placental lactogen (hPL) mRNA (10) (data not shown), were detected in the maternal plasma aliquots without formaldehyde treatment but in none of the paired aliquots treated with formaldehyde.
The understanding that fetal RNA in maternal plasma is predominantly placental in origin with easy and reliable detection of human placental lactogen (hPL)  mRNA in all pregnancy stages is in accordance with the fact that the major cell type circulating in the maternal blood is of trophoblastic, in particular extravillus, origin (5).
trophoblast-produced human placental lactogen or placental growth hormones) may open new opportunities for detecting and monitoring aberrant or differentially expressed genes.
