While there is, as yet, no universally accepted definition for RIF , it has been proposed as the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after transfer of at least four good quality embryos in a minimum of three fresh or frozen cycles in a woman under the age of 40 years. 14 Thus far, the effect of endometrial trauma on pregnancy outcome in women who have experienced recurrent miscarriage (RM) has not been evaluated. 2.

The influence of sex steroid hormones on the response to trauma and burn injury 28920065 2018 11 13 2321-3868 5 2017 Burns & trauma Burns Trauma The influence of sex steroid hormones on the response to trauma and burn injury. 29 10.1186/s41038-017-0093-9 Trauma and related sequelae result in disturbance of homeostatic mechanisms frequently leading to cellular dysfunction and ultimately organ and system failure. Regardless of the type and severity of injury, gender dimorphism in outcomes (...) following trauma have been reported, with females having lower mortality than males, suggesting that sex steroid hormones (SSH) play an important role in the response of body systems to trauma. In addition, several clinical and experimental studies have demonstrated the effects of SSH on the clinical course and outcomes following injury. Animal studies have reported the ability of SSH to modulate immune, inflammatory, metabolic and organ responses following traumatic injury. This indicates
