Stem Cells ‘Link’ to Repeat Miscarriages, Say Scientists

March 9, 2016

(BBC) – A lack of stem cells in the womb lining causes thousands of women to suffer repeat miscarriages, according to researchers.  University of Warwick scientists said the womb lining in recurrent miscarriage patients they studied was “already defective” before pregnancy. The team studied tissue samples donated by 183 patients at the Implantation Research Clinic in Coventry. Researchers believe the “major breakthrough” could help many women.
