Comparative genomic hybridization of ectopic pregnancies that fail methotrexate therapy

Fertil Steril. 2005 Nov;84(5):1517-9. doi: 10.1016/j.fertnstert.2005.04.064.


Ectopic pregnancies that fail methotrexate therapy are predominantly euploid by comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). This feasibility study also confirms that formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded gestational tissue can successfully undergo CGH.
