Following the observation that non-organ-specific antibodies are related with pregnancy loss and preeclampsia, the role of organ-specific antibodies is currently being extensively investigated. The aim of this study was on the one hand to evaluate the incidence of antithyroid antibodies in a study group of 69 women with a history of early pregnancy loss (subgroup 1), foetal death (subgroup 2) or preeclampsia (subgroup 3) and in a control group, on the other hand to assess the possible… CONTINUE READING
