Interesting article, leaving many doors open for additional research in multiple areas, including septic abortions, PE after assisted fertilization, as well as multiple other areas. Would be interested in additional follow-up.

Very interesting article that raises more questions than answers. Saved it to share with my colleagues in Women's health to discuss some of the issues raised regarding autoimmune diseases in pregnancy.
