|Title||MicroRNA in a case of unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss|
The present report describes the relative quantitation of a group of selected miRNAs in a twenty one years old Palestinian woman who experienced 8 unexplained first trimester pregnancy losses. The relative expression of miR-21, miR-126, miR-155, miR-182, miR-222 and miR-517* in her plasma was measured before pregnancy and in the seventh week of her ninth pregnancy. The relative expression of the same miRNAs was also measured before pregnancy and in the eighth week of fifth pregnancy in a healthy control woman who has four live children and without any history of pregnancy loss. The results of the case woman showed an extremely decreased level of all the investigated microRNAs during her pregnancy as compared to their level before being pregnant, except for miR-517* which was elevated. The relative quantitation of miR-21, miR-126, miR-155, miR-182, miR-222 and miR-517* was 0.026, 0.12, 0.23, 0.26, 0.28 and 1.4, respectively. However, the relative quantitation of the respective miRNAs in the control was 0.92, 0.75, 0.6, 1.1, 1.11 and 10.9. Unfortunately, at the end of eighth week of her pregnancy the case woman lost her fetus. We believe that the dysregulation of miRNA is involved in the recurrent pregnancy losses in the case presented in this report.
