Abnormal embryonic karyotype is the most frequent cause of recurrent miscarriage.
BACKGROUND We previously found that a normal karyotype in a previous miscarriage is a predictor of subsequent miscarriage. However, the prevalence of recurrent miscarriage caused by an abnormalExpand
Factor XII but not protein C, protein S, antithrombin III, or factor XIII is a predictor of recurrent miscarriage.
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether a decrease in the values of protein C (PC), protein S (PS), antithrombin III (ATIII), factor XII (FXII), or factor XIII (FXIII) has predictive value for subsequentExpand
Frequency of recurrent spontaneous abortion and its influence on further marital relationship and illness: The Okazaki Cohort Study in Japan
Aims:  The aim of this study was to examine the influence of recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) on marital relationships, and the association between past/present illness and RSA.
Prevalence of Autoantibodies in Patients with Recurrent Miscarriages
PROBLEM: It is well known that the prevalence of several autoantibodies is higher in patients with recurrent miscarriages than in normal women. However, links between individual autoantibodies areExpand
Peritoneal fluid concentrations of epithelial neutrophil-activating peptide-78 correlate with the severity of endometriosis.
OBJECTIVE To assess the release of epithelial neutrophil-activating peptide-78 (ENA-78) into peritoneal fluid in women with and without endometriosis. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING NagoyaExpand
Elevation of Transforming Growth Factor-β1 Is Associated with Recurrent Miscarriage
To investigate the significance of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) in reproduction we have compared plasma levels in normal pregnant women and patients suffering miscarriages. We examined 188Expand
Specific antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) eluted from placentae of pregnant women with aPL-positive sera
The mechanism by which antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) cause recurrent pregnancy loss remains unclear. It has however been reported that aPL may affect cytotrophoblasts in vitro and thus directExpand
Low Serum M‐CSF Levels Are Associated with Unexplained Recurrent Abortion
PROBLEM: The purpose of this study was to determine whether the serum macrophage‐colony stimulating factor (M‐CSF) level is associated with early pregnancy loss in unexplained recurrent spontaneousExpand
Peripheral natural killer cell activity as a predictor of recurrent pregnancy loss: a large cohort study.
OBJECTIVE To determine the predictive value of preconceptional peripheral blood natural killer (pNK) cell activity in patients with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). DESIGN Cohort study. SETTINGExpand
A case of successful conservative chemotherapy for intramural pregnancy.
OBJECTIVE To describe a rare case of intramural pregnancy diagnosed with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and conservatively managed. DESIGN Case report. SETTING Department ofExpand
