Common Gene Variant might Raise Miscarriage Risk, Study Finds: – THURSDAY, Oct. 8, 2015 – – Scientists record a common gene variant could be associated with both early pregnancy reduction and failed in vitro fertilization treatments. The variant in a woman’s genome, which causes errors in the cell replication process, is strongly associated with risk of aneuploidy – – an abnormal number of chromosomes in a cell, the researchers said cliquez içi . But they did not prove that the variant causes pregnancy problems. ‘Early in human development, this [cell replication] procedure is particularly error-prone, affecting as much as 75 % of embryos and frequently causing pregnancy loss as soon as five days after fertilization – – before the mother also knows she is pregnant,’ study first author Rajiv McCoy, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle, said in a news discharge from the American Society of Human Genetics.
