Immunology of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss and Implantation Failure

Joanna Kwak-Kim (Redaktør)

Immunology of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss provides doctors and immunologists with the information they need to help couples who experience recurrent pregnancy losses. Sections cover unexplained infertility, repeated in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer failures, history of second or third trimester pregnancy losses of unknown cause, or pregnancy with a history of or active autoimmune and/or alloimmune disease.

Immunology of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss provides doctors and immunologists with the information they need to help couples who experience recurrent pregnancy losses. Sections cover unexplained infertility, repeated in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer failures, history of second or third trimester pregnancy losses of unknown cause, or pregnancy with a history of or active autoimmune and/or alloimmune disease.  Reproductive failure (RF), including recurrent pregnancy losses (RPL) and repeated implantation failures (RIF) is rather a syndrome than a disease caused by multiple etiologies, such as anatomical, endocrine, genetic, infectious, immunological, thrombotic and unexplained etiologies, hence this book strives to present the latest information.

In 27 chapters, divided in 5 sections, the book introduces the current update of reproductive immunology topics in RF and provides systematic diagnostic guidelines, systemic and immune etiologies and therapeutic approaches.

Fax: +1 847 327 6129 Dr. Kwak has the highest scholarly output on this subject. A pioneer in the field of Reproductive Immunology, Dr. Kwak-Kim has devoted more than 25 years of her career to Reproductive Immunology research and continues to do so. She is focusing her research on unravelling the role of the immune system in pregnancy and pregnancy loss and developing treatment plans that help women maintain successful pregnancies. While attempting pregnancy, Dr Kwak-Kim and her staff co-manage patients along with their reproductive endocrinologist or primary gynaecologist. Once pregnancy occurs, co-management continues with their obstetricians or high-risk obstetricians.
