Patients with Food and Medicine Allergies

Posted By Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology || 22-Sep-2010

New literature has shown that patients with allergies to either food or medicines have a higher rate of complications in early and late pregnancy. This most likely has to do with the same mechanism and reason patients with autoimmune diseases also have a higher rate of complications. Its the same set of T cells that are responsible for both. We take these allergies into account already when we take your history as this has always been a suspicion of mine, now it is being bourne out in the recent literature as well, so be sure to let me know if you have any.
