    Interesting, thanks. Is that the matching test Dr Georgy does? LIT?

    But isnít it hard to say that for sure the immune therapy was the one that made her have the child?
    You  canít just say based on one case...or even a few that a treatment is successful.
    To say a treatment is successful you need world wide studies and trials with everything taking into account. Until I see something like that in the news (probably never) Iíll still be wary when it comes to treatments like that, especially LIT.

    I too had the same treatment LIT both with Dr. T in Athens & Dr. Gorgy here in the UK after several failed ivf attempts & miscarriages we finally had our boy after 7 long years. I believe trials were done in the US at the Chicago school of medicine. The late Dr. Alan E Beer pioneered this treatment theory. Now i'm currently pregnant with baby no.2  ^hugme^
    It's good that this theory has made national news! It might just help someone else out there like me  ^pray^

    I donít think anyone is suggesting one success means itís a successful treatment for all people, just that she felt it was for her. Itís worth noting the lady wanted to publicise her experience as she felt too easily dismissed initially and I think that sadly that happens all too frequently with people who suffer miscarriage. I also think itís good to highlight in the mainstream media that itís not that easy to get pregnant for some people and that for many itís a difficult road.

    Unfortunately due to the difficulties in research in the area of recurrent loss we often have to make judgement calls based on a lack of information and I canít see that changing any time soon Iím afraid xxx
