A mothers immune system is altered during pregnancy so that the fetus is not rejected by her body and is allowed to grow. When this balance goes awry, the immune system may become the cause of a miscarriage or multiple miscarriages. We talked to Dr. Jeffrey Braverman, a world leader in reproductive immunology, about the role of immune system in recurrent miscarriages. Dr. Braverman discussed about various immunity related conditions or issues that may be the cause of recurrent miscarriages, and also highlighted the advances in the diagnosis and management of immune related pregnancy complications.

Over 10 million people in the US have a neurodegenerative condition. Half of these people have Alzheimer's Disease making it the most common neurodegenerative condition in the US. Among the remaining, a large population suffer from frontotemporal dementia (FTD). However, FTD and Alzheimer's are very often misdiagnosed for each other and even the terms are used interchangeably. In reality, they are two different diseases that have varying effects on behavior. It is important to differentiate between the two so that patients and families can know what to expect and receive targeted therapies. We discussed FTD and Alzheimer's Disease, their similarities, differences, risk, diagnostic tests, progression stages, treatments and clinical trials with Dr. Murray Grossman and Dr. David Wolk from the University of Pennsylvania.
