Frequency and impact of obstetric complications prior and subsequent to unexplained secondary recurrent miscarriage

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The chance of a live birth after a diagnosis of secondary recurrent miscarriage (SRM) is reduced in patients who, prior to the miscarriages, gave birth to a boy and carry HLA class II alleles that efficiently present male-specific (H-Y) antigens to the immune system. Information about obstetric complications in births prior and subsequent to the SRM diagnosis is limited. The relations between maternal carriage of H-Y-restricting HLA, fetal sex, obstetric complications and prognosis are unknown.
