Scientists identify new genetic causes linked to abnormal pregnancies and miscarriages
(McGill University Health Centre) A team of scientists at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and McGill University have identified three genes responsible for recurrent molar pregnancies, a rare complication that occurs when a non-viable pregnancy with no embryo implants in the uterus. The results of this study, published in The American Journal of Human Genetics, could have important implications, since until now very little is known about the genetic causes of all forms of fetal loss.

Study links gene mutation to neurodevelopmental disorders
A new model created by UCLA scientists reveals how the alteration of a specific gene increases the risk for neurodevelopmental problems in mice. When the researchers mutated the gene, it produced symptoms at specific ages in the animal ’s life.Called Glut3, this gene is responsible for moving glucose — the fuel essential to normal function — into brain cells, and plays a crucial role in fetal growth during early pregnancy.Previous studies have linked a GLUT3 mutation in mice to miscarriage and restriction of the fetus ’ growth in the last trimester of pregnancy.“Our findings could lead to new ...

(Ruhr-University Bochum) A single gene of the mother plays such a crucial role in the development of the placenta that its dysfunction leads to miscarriages. Researchers from the Medical Faculty of Ruhr-Universit ä t Bochum (RUB) have observed this in so-called knockout mice that were specifically modified for this purpose. These mice lack the gene for the transcription factor Math6. By conducting further analyses, the research team is now hoping to gain new insights into the role the gene plays in recurrent miscarriage in humans. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Featured Review: Progestogen for preventing miscarriage
Can progestogen help prevent miscarriage? Early pregnancy loss, also known as miscarriage, generally occurs in the first trimester. For some women and their partners, miscarriages can happen several times, also known as recurrent miscarriages. While there are sometimes causes for miscarriages that are found, often no clear reasons can be discovered. The hormone called progesterone prepares the womb (uterus) to receive and support the newly fertilized egg during the early part of pregnancy. It has been suggested that some women who miscarry may not make enough progesterone in the early part of pregnancy. Supplementing ...

Health Links Between Gluten And Diabetes, Air Pollution And Dementia
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Gluten intolerance is a sensitivity to a family of proteins found in grains like wheat, rye and barley. It can cause symptoms that include bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. It now seems that gluten can affect more than just the person who eats it, reports Dr. Max Gomez. Danish scientists, after analyzing data from thousands of pregnant women, say a high gluten diet may put offspring at higher risk for type 1 diabetes. Doctors say children of women with the highest intake of wheat, rye, and barley proteins had double the diabetes risk. ...
