Aims: Spontaneous abortion is one of the most common complications of pregnancy. Human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) is thought to have a mediating role in mother and fetus interactions. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of the +14bp/-14bp polymorphism of HLA-G gene with recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) among Iranian women.
Materials and Methods: This case-control study was conducted on 50 patients with RSA and 50 normal women referred to Sarem women hospital (Tehran, Iran) during a six-month period from October 2012 to March 2013. After preparation of the blood samples and extraction of DNA, the exon 8 of HLA-G gene was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and observed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Statistical analysis of data was done by Chi-square test using SPSS software.
Findings: There was a significant difference in the frequency of homozygous genotypes between patient and control groups (p=0.034). The homozygous genotypes of +14bp or -14bp were found more frequently in patients with RSA (60%) than the control group (34%). The odds ratio (OR) for homozygous genotypes relative to heterozygote genotype was found as 2.91.
Conclusion: The frequencies of heterozygous and homozygous genotypes of the polymorphism, +14bp/-14bp of the HLA-G gene, differ between Iranian women with a history of RSA and healthy women.
