The aim of the present study was to compare the levels of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) in the tubal ampullary region in normal and ectopic pregnancies and assess possible causative role of LIF in ectopic pregnancy. Although there was a tendency of increase in LIF concentrations in the ectopic pregnancy group, we were not able to determine a statistically significant difference between the two groups.
