PROBLEM The aim of this study was to assess the role of natural killer (NK) cells in pregnant women with a history of recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA). METHOD OF STUDY Consecutive 66 pregnant women with a history of RSA were prospectively assessed for peripheral NK cell activity, percentage of the NK cell subsets, and subsequent pregnancy outcome. RESULTS NK cell activity in women with subsequent live birth (group I) at 4-5 gestational weeks (GW) (mean +/- SD, 32.5 +/- 12.31… CONTINUE READING
