A SHORT OVERVIEW OF HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN AS A FORENSIC BIOMARKER

M. Vieru, A. A. Simionescu, S. Schmitzer, F. D. Popescu,


Abstract: Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) may be determined in legal medicine by several immunoassays, including various specimens from women with intrauterine and ectopic pregnancies and patients with choriocarcinoma. Measuring hCG and βhCG in postmortem serum and other nonblood fluid samples, in some pregnancy- and tumor- related fatal cases that underwent medico-legal autopsies, reveals the interesting role of hCG as a forensic biomarker.
Keywords: human chorionic gonadotropin, forensic, biomarker
