Exposure to bisphenol A is associated with recurrent miscarriage.
TLDR
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.
Genetic factors as a cause of miscarriage.
TLDR
Genetic factors as a cause of miscarriage are reviewed and 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.
PCBs, Hexachlorobenzene and DDE are not Associated with Recurrent Miscarriage
TLDR
A case‐control study was designed to evaluate any associations between high exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls, hexachlorobenzene and the 1,1,1‐trichloro‐2,2‐bis (p‐chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) metabolite and recurrent miscarriage and immunoendocrine abnormalities.
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.
Depression as a potential causal factor in subsequent miscarriage in recurrent spontaneous aborters.
TLDR
A high depression scale is associated with a high miscarriage rate in those patients suffering recurrent miscarriage and this effect remained when corrected with Bonfferoni adjustment.
Subsequent pregnancy outcomes in recurrent miscarriage patients with a paternal or maternal carrier of a structural chromosome rearrangement
TLDR
Pregnancy prognosis was worsened with either maternal or paternal reciprocal translocations, and explanation of the success rate with natural conception should be provided before the subsequent pregnancy after ascertainment of a carrier status.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and Natural Conception: A Comparison of Live Birth Rates in Patients with Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Associated with Translocation
TLDR
While PGD significantly prevented further miscarriages, there was no difference in the live birth rates of patients with RPL associated with a translocation undergoing PGD with that of patients who chose natural conception.
Parental origin and cell stage of non‐disjunction of double trisomy in spontaneous abortion
TLDR
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.
Abnormal embryonic karyotype is the most frequent cause of recurrent miscarriage.
TLDR
An abnormal embryonic karyotype was found to represent the commonest cause of recurrent miscarriage, and the percentage of cases with recurrent miscarriage of truly unexplained cause was limited to 24.5%.
