Application of chromosomal microarray analysis in products of miscarriage.

Mol Cytogenet 2018 17;11:44. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

2Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, the Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School, Nanjing, 210008 Jiangsu China.

Background: Chromosomal abnormality is one of the major cause of spontaneous abortion. Most available guidelines suggest genetic testing after three miscarriages, which has been proved to be difficult to adhere to and somewhat of low cost-effectiveness. As chromosomal microarray analysis has been recommended to be applied on miscarriage products, we managed a retrospective study on our experience investigate the potential impact of this technique on previous guidelines and our present management on miscarried couples and products.

Assessing whether progesterone-matured dendritic cells are responsible for retention of fertilization products in missed abortion.

Med Hypotheses 2018 Sep 12;118:169-173. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Physiology and Immunology, Medical Faculty, University of Rijeka, 51000 Rijeka, B. Branchetta 20, Croatia; Department of Biomedical Sciences in Rijeka, Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, R. Matejcic 2, 51000 Rijeka, Croatia. Electronic address:

We hypothesize that progesterone causes tolerogenic maturation of myeloid dendritic cells (DCs) in human decidua of threatened miscarriage or missed abortion characterized by a distinct phenotype and cytokine production, including reduction of the main NK cell proliferation and cytotoxic factor interleukin (IL)-15. During DC/NK cell interaction, progesterone-shaped DCs cannot efficiently multiply or equip NK cells with the cytotoxic mediators peforin and granulysin, which might harm trophoblasts and induce abortion. We propose that the presence, and maturation stage of decidual myeloid DCs be investigated using semi-quantitative immunohistological analyses and/or double-color immuno-fluorescent labeling of DC lineage and activation markers.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) General Hospital, Chinese PLA Medical School, Beijing 100853, P.R. China.

Missed abortion (MA) refers to a pregnancy in which there is fetal demise without outside intervention, and additionally no uterine activity that may expel the product of conception (POC) prior to 20 weeks of gestation. Chromosomal abnormalities are the primary cause of MA and single gene defects in the POC may additionally be associated with MA; however, few studies have been conducted on the identification of mutations by whole‑exome sequencing. In the present study, 19 unrelated MA POCs were collected and whole‑exome sequencing was performed on the POC. Read More

Nusirat Elelu

Vet Med Sci 2018 11 26;4(4):271-279. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Department of Veterinary Public Health and Preventive Medicine, University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria.

Tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) caused by the bacteria Borrelia, is poorly documented in veterinary medicine. Given the widespread presence of the soft tick vectors - Ornithodoros and the recently discovered hard tick vectors, as well as their close association with animal hosts, it is highly likely that infection occurs, but is rarely reported to be of veterinary importance. Sporadic reports of canine infection, some being fatal through to probable cause of abortion in horses have been published. Read More

Trophoblast CD200 expression in successful human pregancies and missed abortions.

J Reprod Immunol 2018 Jun 16;127:55-57. Epub 2018 Mar 16.

Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, McMaster University, Canada.

Presence of the CD200 immune check-point inhibitor at the feto-maternal interface is linked to prevention of spontaneous abortion in mice and humans. In human missed abortions (MA), absence of Th17-driven inflammation has been attributed to expression of villus trophoblast CD200 quantified using immunohistochemistry. While rapid aneuploidy (QF-PCR) testing linked low CD200 to pregnancy failure, data showing normal VT CD200 in first trimester normal pregnancy and in abortion of chromosomally abnormal embryos has not been demonstrated.
