Gene behind rare but important pregnancy disorder found

Researchers funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) have identified the genetic cause underlying "molar pregnancy", an abnormal human pregnancy that affects one in a thousand women in Canada and the US in which there is no embryo.

The findings of MUHC geneticist Dr. Rima Slim, published in the March 2006 issue of Nature Genetics, may open new avenues of therapies and treatments for molar pregnancies as well as repeated spontaneous abortions and still births.
