This is a prospective cohort study of CA-125 levels drawn on the day of hCG administration in 386 women undergoing IVF treatment. The CA-125 levels were not helpful in determining pregnancy outcome, as indicated by poor sensitivity (40.8%) and specificity (52.7%), as well as an area under the receiver operator characteristic curve close to 0.50.
