We're sorry. This study is closed and no longer recruiting participants.

STUDY BASICS

Are you a woman between the ages of 18 and 37 who has experienced a pregnancy loss? You may be able to participate in a study that hopes to better understand the genetic basis of recurrent pregnancy loss.


STUDY PURPOSE

The purpose of this project is to utilize DNA from the mother, father, and products of conception to determine the genetic origin of recurrent pregnancy loss with no defined cause. This study focuses on investigation of genetic causes of recurrent pregnancy loss that includes recurrent chromosomal abnormalities, unbalanced chromosomal aberrations resulting from parental balanced rearrangements, parental genetic mutations affecting fetal viability or ability to carry pregnancy.  


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOU?

Have you had a pregnancy loss or miscarriage that is unexplained after cytogenetic studies? 


WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

Once a woman and her partner have consented to participate, the research team will collect a blood sample from them. This blood sample will only be about 10cc (1 purple top tube). This will be used to obtain DNA from the parents. The parents will also give consent for previous products of conception to be included in the study. These materials have previously been collected for clinical purposes and we will only use them once clinical testing has been completed. We will also collect a family history and family pedigree from the parents.
