Book Description

Major advances in genetics, immunology, and endocrinology have necessitated a new edition of this best-selling text. However, despite the advances, recurrent pregnancy loss presents a frustrating clinical problem. There is still disagreement about the number of pregnancy losses which warrant investigation and treatment and about which investigations should be performed.

This third edition provides an authoritative and comprehensive update on advances in the understanding and management of this troubling phenomenon, covering both basic scientific topics such as genetics and cytokines, and profiles major advances in immunology, endocrinology, and thrombotic mechanism. Clinical research is discussed, as is assessment of results when applying an evidence-based approach or a more personalised approach, which is now becoming possible due to advances in the diagnosis of cause. There are lively debates on the role of progestogens and immunotherapy, which remain controversial.

Designed for specialists working in reproductive medicine clinics and those involved with maternal-fetal care, the book is also ideal for generalists and gynecologists seeking a comprehensive view of developments in the field.
