Can peptides stop recurrent miscarriage in women with autoimmune Anti-Phospholipid Syndrome?

Hi Cienna and thanks for your question. The peptides interact with anti-Beta 2 glycoprotein 1 (B2GLYC1) antibodies. These are produced by and are on the cell surface of B cells which are a subset of white blood cells. These cells also secrete the antibodies into the blood where they bind to B2GLYC1 and cause damage, as described. Our peptides also interact with these secreted antibodies and inhibit there binding to B2GLYC1. Regards, Michael
