PMID:  984146     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Estimation of HPL during the twenty-ninths to the thirtieth week of pregnancy is a simple and safe method for detecting twins. Nine out of 10 pregnant women have a value below 5.0 mug per milliliter, which excludes the suspicion of twins. In the remaining women with higher values the diagnosis can be confirmed or excluded by ultrasound or x-ray.
