Anticardiolipin antibodies in women with recurrent abortion
Daboubi, M.K. ( 2001 )

The present study sought to determine whether the level of anticardiolipin antibodies in women with recurrent abortion differed from that in the general population. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used for detection of anticardiolipin antibodies in a group of 26 patients defined as habitual aborters [at least three consecutive spontaneous abortions], and in a control group of 26 patients each of whom had had at least one live birth without pregnancy wastage. A high level of anticardiolipin antibody activity was detected among 19.23% of the habitual aborters but in none of the controls, indicating an association between anticardiolipin antibody level and habitual abortion

Toxoplasmosis among women with habitual abortion
Al Hamdani, Muna M.; Mahdi, Nadham K. ( 1997 )

The role of maternal toxoplasmosis as a risk factor for habitual abortion was investigated. The indirect haemagglutination test was positive in a titre of 1:32 to 1:2048 much more frequently in women with habitual abortion [18.5%] than in the normal pregnancy group [5.9%]. The overall prevalence of antibodies gradually increased with age, reaching 23.7% in the age group 35-45 years. No differences were found among women in different socioeconomic groups. The study suggests that toxoplasma antibodies are more prevalent in women with cats at home than in women who do not possess cats
