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.
