Embryonic karyotype of abortuses in relation to the number of previous miscarriages.
The frequency of normal embryonic karyotypes significantly increases with the number of previous abortions, and a normal karyotype in a previous pregnancy is a predictor of subsequent miscarriage. Expand
Exposure to bisphenol A is associated with recurrent miscarriage.
Exposure to bisphenol A is associated with recurrent miscarriage and was associated with the presence of ANAs but not hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinaemia, luteal phase defects, NK cell activity or aPLs. Expand
A molecular variant of angiotensinogen associated with preeclampsia
In a series of Caucasian women with pregnancy–induced hypertension, a significant association of preeclampsia with a molecular variant of angiotensinogen, T235, found previously to be associated with essential hypertension is observed, which support a new pathophysiological interpretation of preeClampsia and of its relation to some forms of essential hypertension.

Poor prognosis of recurrent aborters with either maternal or paternal reciprocal translocations.
The pregnancy prognosis with either maternal or paternal reciprocal translocations is poorer than without them, and the presence of a reciprocal translocation is thus a risk factor in couples who have recurrent miscarriages. Expand
Distributions of Endometrial NK Cells, B Cells, T Cells, and Th2/Tc2 Cells Fail to Predict Pregnancy Outcome Following Recurrent Abortion
PROBLEM: To evaluate the ability of immunophenotypes of endometrial leukocytes from patients with histories of recurrent abortion to predict outcome of subsequent pregnancy.
Isolation, mapping, and functional analysis of a novel human cDNA (BNIP3L) encoding a protein homologous to human NIP3
A novel cDNA is isolated that encodes a product showing significant sequence homology to human NIP3, a protein thought to interact with adenovirus E1B19kD and human BCL2 proteins, indicating that BNIP3L may function as a tumor suppressor. Expand
Elevated serum RANTES levels in patients with ovarian cancer correlate with the extent of the disorder.
It is suggested that preoperative serum RANTES levels may be useful in differentiating benign ovarian tumors from malignancy correlating with the extent of the disorder. Expand
No Association of C677T Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase and an Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Polymorphism with Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
Problem:  It is controversial whether polymorphisms of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) and the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) are associated with recurrent pregnancy loss.
Parental origin and cell stage of non‐disjunction of double trisomy in spontaneous abortion
The findings suggest the possibility that abnormal separation of two or more chromosomes may occur simultaneously in oogonia, and that this phenomenon may increase in relation to the increase in age of women. Expand
Mutation analysis of the BRCA1 gene in 76 Japanese ovarian cancer patients: four germline mutations, but no evidence of somatic mutation.
The evidence reported here supports a rather limited role of BRCA1 in ovarian carcinogenesis in the Japanese population. Expand
