Embryo–fetal infections have been reported to cause recurrent spontaneous abortions (RSAs) at a rate lower than 4%. The possible mechanisms include production of toxic metabolic byproducts, fetal or placental infection, chronic endometrial infection, and chorio-amnionitis. Viruses appear to be the most frequently involved pathogens, since some of them can produce chronic or recurrent maternal infection. In particular, cytomegalovirus during pregnancy can reach the placenta by viremia, following… Expand
Association of spontaneous abortion and Ureaplasma parvum detected in placental tissue
TLDR
The presence of Mollicutes in placental tissue increased the chance of developing miscarriage sevenfold and the detection of U. parvum in CM in pregnant women can ascend to the region of the placental tissues and trigger a spontaneous abortion. Expand
Detection of human herpes viruses 1-5 in miscarriage: A case-control study
TLDR
No correlation was detected between the HHVs placental infections and the increased risk of spontaneous abortions and further investigations should be performed on a larger sample size in different areas. Expand
Incidence of active maternal infections and autoantibodies in pregnant women with recurrent foetal loss
Recurrent foetal loss (RFL) is defined as the loss of three or more pregnancies and its causes include maternal infections and immunological status. Present study was conducted in Nair Hospital,Expand
Investigation on silent bacterial infections in specimens from pregnant women affected by spontaneous miscarriage
TLDR
Bacteria were investigated, for the first time, by quantitative real‐time PCR (qPCR) in chorionic villi tissues and PBMCs from women affected by SA and VI and may help to understand the role and knowledge of the silent infections in SA. Expand
Relation between mycoplasma infection and recurrent spontaneous abortion.
TLDR
The notion that RSA might be associated with UU and MH infection, could influence the occurrence of other bacterial infections and could stimulate ACA expression, inflammatory response, thrombogenesis, and factors associated with cell apoptosis, increasing the risk for an abortion during pregnancy is supported.

TLDR
Viral nucleic acids are detectable in 2.2% of AF samples obtained from asymptomatic women in the midtrimester, and HHV6 was the most frequently detected virus in AF, which was consistent with genomic integration of viral DNA and genetic infection in all women. Expand
An Immunohistochemical Study of Human Cytomegalovirus Infection in Spontaneous Abortion in Egyptian Women
Background: Miscarriage, the most common complication of pregnancy, is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before the fetus has reached viability. Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) has been described inExpand
The alteration and potential relationship of vaginal microbiota and chemokines for unexplained recurrent spontaneous abortion
TLDR
The relevance between differential bacteria at the genus level and the incidence of URSA is discussed, to determine whether certain pathogenic genera can cause an imbalance in immune tolerance of the maternal and fetal interface through regulatory chemokines, which leads to recurrent spontaneous abortion.

TLDR
The role of intracellular bacteria in adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as miscarriage, stillbirths, and preterm labour is considered and newly discovered Chlamydia-like organisms have recently emerged as new pathogens of both animals and humans. Expand
IMMUNOHISTOCHEMICAL TARGETING OF HLA-G ANTIGEN IN MISCARRIAGE PLACENTAL TISSUES OF IRAQI WOMEN INFECTED WITH HUMAN HERPES VIRUSES TYPES 1, 2, 4 AND 5
TLDR
This research work could point for an important role and participation of this marker HLA-G in protection the fetuses during succeeded full-term pregnancies as well as the highest expressions of HLAG with  HSV-2, lower rates of each viral agents especially in the placental tissues of healthy pregnant women than other pointing for its important protecting role.

TLDR
The best evidence suggests that infection is an occasional cause of sporadic spontaneous abortion, and, consistent with statistical probability, recurrent miscarriage due to infection occurs with a frequency that is much lower than this, reflecting the low frequency with which the necessary microbial and maternal factors combine to cause recurrent miscarriage. Expand
Herpes simplex virus infection in women with previous spontaneous abortion
TLDR
The results showed that the highest incidence of latent HSV type 2 infection occurred in women who had one or more spontaneous abortions, whereas this type of infection was found in only 5% of pregnant women of the control group. Expand
An update in recurrent spontaneous abortion
TLDR
Various forms of treatment like antithrombotic therapies such as aspirin and heparin, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) therapy, immunotherapy with paternal lymphocytes and vitamin D3 therapy are effective mode of treatment for unexplained cause of fetal loss in women with RSA. Expand
Relationship of bacterial vaginosis and mycoplasmas to the risk of spontaneous abortion.
TLDR
Bacterial vaginosis and mycoplasmas may play causative roles in spontaneous abortion and early pregnancy loss. Expand
Herpes simplex virus and Epstein-Barr virus infections in pregnancy: consequences of neonatal or intrauterine infection.
TLDR
It should be mentioned that both HSV and EBV seem to be able to cross the placenta and cause, as described by several investigators, placental infection manifested by deciduitis and villitis, which may increase fetal damage. Expand
Herpes simplex and varicella-zoster virus infections during pregnancy: current concepts of prevention, diagnosis and therapy. Part 1: Herpes simplex virus infections
TLDR
Neither active nor passive immunization is available to prevent HSV infections during pregnancy and in the newborn infant, so antiviral treatment using aciclovir and/or valaciclovIR must be considered in all primary episodes of genital herpes as well as in neonates who show signs of either infection. Expand
Intrauterine infection and spontaneous midgestation abortion: is the spectrum of microorganisms similar to that in preterm labor?
TLDR
Unsuspected intrauterine infection underlies many spontaneous midgestation abortions and GBS is a key pathogen in this setting, especially with intact membranes. Expand
Absence of Cytomegalovirus in Gestational Tissue in Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
It is suggested that CMV infection of gestational tissue is not a common direct cause of recurrent spontaneous abortions, and the assay used has a demonstrated level of sensitivity on the order of 10 2 virocytes per square centimeter of 4-p.M paraffin section. Expand
Latent listeriosis may cause habitual abortion intrauterine deaths, fetal malformations. When diagnosed and treated adequately normal children will be born.
TLDR
It is proved latent listeriosis (LL), a chronic and asymptomatic infection, in women who suffered from repeated accidents in their pregnancies, and high positivity of IIF was the only aetiologic date to explain these accidents. Expand
The Role of Maternal Syphilis, Gonorrhoea and HIV-1 Infections in Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
Spontaneous abortion was independently associated with maternal HIV-1 antibody and with maternal syphilis seroreactivity, and no significant association was found between maternal infections with gonococci and genital mycoplasmas, and spontaneous abortion. Expand
