Abstract: Recurrent miscarriage is defined as three or more consecutive miscarriages before 20 weeks of gestation. This condition is a frequent reproductive problem worldwide, affecting up to 1% of couples. Immune effector cell dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of early pregnancy loss. This dysfunction may involve defects in cytokines, growth factors and immunosuppressive factors at the maternofetal interface. This is a growing research field, especially the role of cytokines in recurrent miscarriage.
