Core Tip Low concentrations of urocortin (UCN) in the amniotic fluid may be a sign of predisposition to preterm birth, since it correlates with a pro-inflammatory state. UCN is present at higher serum concentrations in women with endometriomas. Therefore, the measurement of UCN could be useful in distinguishing between endo-metriosis and other benign ovarian cysts. The thera-peutic treatment with UCN decreases serum levels of proinflammatory cytokines in several experimental situations, so it is plausible that the same effects may occur in different obstetric and gynecological diseases in which inflammation plays a key role in the onset and progression of the disease.
