Role of Waddlia chondrophila Placental Infection in Miscarriage


Baud, D; Goy, G; Osterheld, M C; Croxatto, A; Borel, N; Vial, Y; Pospischil, A; Greub, G (2014). Role of Waddlia chondrophila Placental Infection in Miscarriage. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 20(4):460-646.

Abstract

Waddlia chondrophila is an intracellular bacterium suspected to cause human and bovine abortion. We confirmed an association between Waddlia antibodies and human miscarriage, and demonstrated by PCR and immunohistochemistry its presence in placenta and/or genital tract of patients with miscarriages. These results suggest a possible role of Waddlia in miscarriage.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
