A definition of the term "recurrent pregnancy loss," which refers to three or more consecutive miscarriages that occur before the 20th week of gestation, is presented.
- Surgical approach to and reproductive outcome after surgical correction of a T-shaped uterus. Fernandez, Herv�; Garbin, Olivier; Castaigne, Vanina; Gervaise, Am�lie; Levaillant, Jean-Marc // Human Reproduction;Jul2011, Vol. 26 Issue 7, p1730
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to describe the surgical approach to, and evaluate the reproductive outcome of, a T-shaped uterus. METHODS The study included 97 women who were eligible for hysteroscopic surgery, by either monopolar or bipolar electrosurgical instruments. All had diagnostic...

- Association between genetic polymorphisms in cytokine genes and recurrent miscarriage -- a meta-analysis. Medica, Igor; Ostojic, Sasa; Pereza, Nina; Kastrin, Andrej; Peterlin, Borut // Reproductive BioMedicine Online;Sep2009, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p406
A meta-analysis of association studies was performed to assess whether the reported genetic polymorphisms in cytokine genes are risk factors for recurrent miscarriage (RM). The electronic PubMed database was searched for case-control studies on immunity-related genes in RM. Investigations of a...
- Correlation between Polymorphic Changes in the IL-10 Promoter and Pregnancy Outcome. // Fertility Weekly;11/22/2010, p6
The article discusses a study on the link of human interleukin (IL)-10 gene promoter's polymorphic changes with pregnancy outcomes. It says that the genomic DNA from the cells of women who had normal pregnancies and those who had recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) was used. It mentions various...
- The deregulation of regulatory T cells on interleukin-17-producing T helper cells in patients with unexplained early recurrent miscarriage. Wen-Juan Wang; Cui-Fang Hao; Qing-Lan Qu; Xiong Wang; Li-Hua Qiu; Qi-De Lin // Human Reproduction;Oct2010, Vol. 25 Issue 10, p2591
BACKGROUND: CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) are important for the maintenance of immune homeostasis by virtue of their ability to control T-cell proliferation in the peripheral blood (PB). We recently demonstrated that the prevalence of Tregs is decreased, whereas that of Th17 cells is...
- An imbalance in interleukin-17-producing T and Foxp3+ regulatory T cells in women with idiopathic recurrent pregnancy loss. Lee, S.K.; Kim, J.Y.; Hur, S.E.; Kim, C.J.; Na, B.J.; Lee, M.; Gilman-Sachs, A.; Kwak-Kim, J. // Human Reproduction;Nov2011, Vol. 26 Issue 11, p2964
BACKGROUND T cells which produce interleukin (IL)-17 are involved in chronic inflammatory processes and regulatory T (Treg) cells are possibly the most important immune regulators. We aimed to investigate peripheral blood IL-17+ T and Foxp3+ Treg cells in women with idiopathic recurrent...
- Greater Prevalence of DNA Damage & Poor Motility in Male Partner. // Fertility Weekly;4/16/2012, p3
The article reports on the results of a study by Sonia Brahem and colleagues which revealed that sperm from the male partner in couples with a history of recurrent miscarriage have greater risk of DNA damage and poor motility compared to sperm from fertile men. It discusses how the study was...
