ABSTRACT

This study was designed to investigate Rubella infection among pregnant women in relation with age and trimester of pregnancy. Venous blood was collected from 170 aborted women from different private laboratories during the period between December 2014 to march 2015. The randomly selected serum samples was tested for specific anti Rubella antibodies (IgM & IgG) using a commercial ELISA kit (Human Germany), the Series of 170 patients that had bad obstetric history and 80 pregnant women had primigravida that aborted in different times(1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester of pregnancy). The results showed that the anti Rubella IgM among group I, was (48.9%) 44 out of 90 was higher than group II which was (36.25%) 29 out of 80 women and anti Rubella IgG in group II 57 out of 80 which was (71%) higher than in group I, which was 63 out of 90 (70%). So, anti Rubella antibodies IgM, IgG were 33 out of 90 (57.9%) in group I and (42.11%) 24 out of 80 in group II. The total of 170 women patients with mean age 27-7 years ranged between (16-42) years consisted of 61% aged between 16-30 years, 38.9% aged between 31-42 years for group I, and 62.5% within 16-30, 37.5% between 31-42 years. The gestational periods for group I were 55.56%, 35- 56%, 8.9% in the first, second and third trimester, 48-75%, 25%, 13.75% for group II in the first, second and third trimester of pregnancy. It could be concluded from this study that seroprevalence of Rubella infection among pregnant women and the high percentage of infection among those patients who extremely high level of ignorance about the disease so, every pregnant women should be tested for Rubella serological status.
