Brief description Certain immune diseases (Lupus, Anti-phospholipid syndrome) are associated with foetal loss. It is thought to be due to inflammation and blood clotting on the blood vessel lining (endothelium). This proposal will study the mechanisms that stimulate inflammation and blood clotting, and also devise new treatments.
