OBJECTIVE: To compile and assess data about complication and success rates for in vitro fertilization (IVF) of women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and/or antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). To date, such data are sparse. METHODS: This retrospective study described women with SLE and/or APS who have had at least 1 IVF cycle. RESULTS: Thirty-seven women with SLE (n = 23, including 8 with antiphospholipid antibodies), SLE with APS (n = 4), or primary APS (n = 10) underwent 97 IVF procedures...

Preeclampsia is an inflammatory disease with endothelial cell dysfunction that occurs via decreased endothelial nitric oxide synthase/nitric oxide (eNOS/NO) activity. Aspirin reduces the incidence of hypertensive pregnancy complications. However, the underlying mechanism has not been clearly explained. Here, we found that tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, microRNA (miR)-155, and eNOS levels as well as endothelial redox phenotype were differentially regulated in preeclamptic patients, implying the involvement of TNF-α- and redox signal-mediated miR-155 biogenesis and eNOS downregulation in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia...

OBJECTIVE: Spontaneous preterm birth is an important cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. An increasing body of evidence suggests that uteroplacental ischemia plays an important role in the etiology of spontaneous preterm birth. We aimed to study whether antiplatelet agents reduce the risk of spontaneous preterm birth. DATA SOURCES: We included data from an individual participant data meta-analysis of studies that had evaluated the effect of antiplatelet agents to reduce preeclampsia (Perinatal Antiplatelet Review of International Studies Individual Participant Data)...

Chronic histiocytic intervillositis (CHI) is a rare placental lesion associated with adverse obstetric outcomes and high recurrence rate. We report a case of six consecutive pregnancies in one woman, where CHI was detected following an intrauterine death in the fifth pregnancy, after being missed in four earlier losses. The successful sixth pregnancy was treated with a combination of immunosuppressive and antithrombotic agents. While low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and aspirin had been shown to improve pregnancy outcome in recurrent pregnancy loss, there was limited evidence of improved outcome in CHI...

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by thrombosis and/or pregnancy morbidity with persistent levels of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLs). The development of thrombosis in APS is mediated by aPLs and contributes to the high mortality rate in APS patients. However, although APS has been reported for more than 30 years, there has been no optimal regimen for its prevention or for the management of thrombosis, mainly because the mainstay treatment strategies for managing APS are not targeted towards aPL-mediated thrombotic pathophysiology...

OBJECTIVE: The FRUIT-RCT concluded that low-molecular-weight heparin added to aspirin compared to treatment with aspirin alone is beneficial in the prevention of early-onset hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HD) in women with inheritable thrombophilia and prior HD and/or a small-for-gestational age (SGA) infant leading to delivery before 34 weeks gestation. The aim of this study is to answer the question whether aspirin resistance is associated with recurrent HD. STUDY DESIGN: Women with and without recurrent HD matched for age, study arm, and chronic hypertension were invited for this follow-up study 6-16 years after they participated in the FRUIT-RCT...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to characterize SLE medication trends before, during and after pregnancy and to compare other commonly used medications during SLE pregnancies with non-SLE pregnancies. METHODS: Women with pregnancies ending in live birth or stillbirth were identified from the Swedish Medical Birth Register (2006-12). National registers were used to identify women with prevalent SLE during pregnancy and a sample without SLE and to identify prescription medications dispensed from 3 months pre-pregnancy until 6 months postpartum...

INTRODUCTION: Meta-analyses of observational studies represent an important tool for assessing efficacy and safety in the pharmacoepidemiologic field. The data from the individual studies are either primary (i.e., collected through interviews or self-administered questionnaires) or secondary (i.e., collected from databases that were established for other purposes). So far, the origin of the data (primary vs. secondary) has not been systematically assessed as a source of heterogeneity in pharmacoepidemiologic meta-analyses...

We present a case of a 37-year-old Chinese woman (gravida 4 para 0) with a history of immune thrombocytopenia and type IIb antiphospholipid syndrome. She was started on 100 mg of aspirin, 20 mg of prednisolone and 20 mg of subcutaneous low-molecular-weight heparin daily for her fourth pregnancy. She opted for non-invasive prenatal testing for aneuploidy screening but had failed results three times consecutively from insufficient fetal cfDNA initially or high variance in cfDNA counts on redraws. She declined invasive karyotyping...

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an acquired autoimmune condition characterized by thrombotic events, pregnancy morbidity, and laboratory evidence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL). Management of these patients includes the prevention of a first thrombotic episode in at-risk patients (primary prevention) and preventing recurrent thrombotic complications in patients with a history of thrombosis (secondary prevention). Assessment of thrombotic risk in these patients, balanced against estimated bleeding risks associated with antithrombotic therapy could assist clinicians in determining whether antithrombotic therapy is warranted...

BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia and intrauterine fetal growth restriction (IUGR) are two of the most common causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Current methods of predicting those at most risk of these conditions remain relatively poor, and in clinical practice past obstetric history remains the most commonly used tool. Aspirin and, in women at risk of preeclampsia only, calcium have been demonstrated to have a modest effect on risk reduction. Several observational studies and randomised trials suggest that low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) therapy may confer some benefit...

STUDY QUESTION: To what extent is preconception use of pain-relieving medication associated with female fecundability? SUMMARY ANSWER: Women who used naproxen or opioids had slightly lower fecundability than women who did not use any pain-relieving medications; use of acetaminophen, aspirin and ibuprofen was not appreciably associated with fecundability. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Over-the-counter pain-relieving medications are commonly used by women of reproductive age in the USA...

BACKGROUND: Defective trophoblastic invasion is a key feature in many of cases of preeclampsia. Uterine artery Doppler is a validated non-invasive surrogate of this trophoblastic invasion. OBJECTIVE: To explore whether low-dose aspirin administered from the first trimester improves trophoblastic invasion, evaluated by uterine Doppler, during the second and third trimesters in women defined as high-risk by abnormal uterine artery Doppler at first trimester. METHODS: This randomized Phase II study had a triple-blind, parallel-arm, controlled design...

BACKGROUND: Aspirin is used with the aim of optimising the chance of live birth in women undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART), despite inconsistent evidence of its efficacy and safety (in terms of intraoperative bleeding during oocyte retrieval and risk of miscarriage). The most appropriate time to commence aspirin therapy and the length of treatment required are also still to be determined. This is the second update of the review first published in 2007. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of aspirin in women undergoing ART...

REVIEW
Amy Sarma, Nandita S Scott
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review examines the recent literature on the use of low-dose aspirin (LDA) for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease in women, use of LDA for pre-eclampsia prevention in pregnancy, and the underutilization of aspirin therapy in women as compared to men. RECENT FINDINGS: While men and women should not differ with respect to aspirin use for secondary prevention, its role in primary prevention remains unclear for both sexes, with particular uncertainty in women...

BACKGROUND: Heritable thrombophilias are assumed important etiologies for recurrent pregnancy loss. Unlike in the Caucasian populations, protein S and protein C deficiencies, instead of Factor V Lieden and Prothrombin mutations, are relatively common in the Han Chinese population. In this study we aimed to investigate the therapeutic effect of low molecular weight heparin upon women with recurrent pregnancy loss and documented protein S deficiency. METHODS: During 2011-2016, 68 women with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) and protein S deficiency (both the free antigen and function of protein S were reduced) were initially enrolled...
