According to the BBC, researchers have found that women who have lower blood level hormones produced by the placenta face a greater risk of having a miscarriage. Professor Eric Jauniaux and his team, investigated whether this hormone and others produced by the placenta might be useful markers of early pregnancy loss and are now hpeful that by correcting the cause of these imbalances miscarriages may be prevented. "If we are able to identify these clear hormone variations early enough, we believe there is a real window of hope for the development of preventative terapies for these patients,"Professor Jauniaux was quoted as saying. Researchers are also oping that correcting these harmonical imbalances may lead to the development of treatments to prevent recurrent miscarriage as well.(ANI) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
