Scientists find key to miscarriages in blood clotting disorder

Prof Harshal Nandurkar and Dr Anushka
Samudra are respectively last and first authors
on the paper on APS and miscarriage
by Anne Crawford

Monash University researchers have potentially shed light on why women with the rare autoimmune disorder Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) are prone to successive pregnancy losses.

APS causes abnormal blood clots in the arteries or veins along with the risks that go with clotting, including stroke and Deep Vein Thrombosis. For pregnant women the effects of the disorder can be devastating, causing about half of them to be at risk of sequential miscarriages, spontaneous abortions or premature births.
