Early blood test may unravel secrets of pregnancy loss


A blood test taken after a miscarriage suffered as early as week five can help explain why it occurred and in some cases lead to preventative treatments, a Danish-led study has found. Gynecologist, Henriette Svarre-Nielsen and head of the COPL (Copenhagen Pregnancy Loss) project, of Hvidovre hospital near Copenhagen and her team of researchers recently published a study in British journal The Lancet showing that the tests can determine whether the foetus had a chromosome anomaly or whether they should look for another reason.

  • New Israel govt faces early test with far-right march

    Israel's fledgling new government faced an early test Tuesday as Jewish ultranationalists prepared to march into annexed east Jerusalem, stoking tensions the UN has warned threaten a fragile Gaza ceasefire. The so-called March of the Flags, which celebrates the anniversary of Israel's 1967 occupation of the city's eastern sector, was originally scheduled for last Thursday but was delayed due to Israeli police opposition to the route and warnings from Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas. The former government of veteran premier Benjamin Netanyahu put off the march until Tuesday, a decision confirmed late Monday by the incoming government of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. FRANCE 24's Irris Makler tells us more.
