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.
