Immune function in normal pregnancy and the postpartum period remains poorly defined. We hypothesized that a comparative study between pregnant women with normal and abnormal immune function would further our understanding of the immune mechanisms of pregnancy. We chose to study a cohort of pregnant women at risk for the development of postpartum thyroid dysfunction (PPTD) as well as a group of normal controls. We chose PPTD as the model for abnormal immune function because of the relative ease… CONTINUE READING
