Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as the loss of two or more pregnancies, affecting approximately 1 to 3% of women worldwide. Scientific data highlight a possible correlation between thrombophilic genetic variants and RPL. H1299R variant in the factor V gene would lead to an increased thrombotic risk associated with frequent miscarriages. However, the data are often conflicting, making this an interesting question for further investigations by evaluating genotype-phenotype correlations to improve the clinical management and genetic counseling of couples. A systematic review and meta-analysis will follow the preferred reporting elements for systematic review and meta-analysis protocols (PRISMA-P). The Pubmed (MEDLINE) and Embase (OVID) databases will be explored to identify suitable articles based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Inclusion criteria are: (a) H1299R genotyping with clear data reported, referred to as Heterozygous (Het) and/or Homozygous (Hom); (b) articles written in English; (c) analyses of only RPL female patients having at least two or more previous pregnancy losses and compared with a control group. This analysis will present selected scientific evidence, addressing the questions concerning the association between the H1299R variant and RPL, hoping to clarify this still unresolved issue.

Abstract

Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as the loss of two or more pregnancies, affecting approximately 1 to 3% of women worldwide. Scientific data highlight a possible correlation between thrombophilic genetic variants and RPL. H1299R variant in the factor V gene would lead to an increased thrombotic risk associated with frequent miscarriages. However, the data are often conflicting, making this an interesting question for further investigations by evaluating genotype-phenotype correlations to improve the clinical management and genetic counseling of couples. A systematic review and meta-analysis will follow the preferred reporting elements for systematic review and meta-analysis protocols (PRISMA-P). The Pubmed (MEDLINE) and Embase (OVID) databases will be explored to identify suitable articles based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Inclusion criteria are: (a) H1299R genotyping with clear data reported, referred to as Heterozygous (Het) and/or Homozygous (Hom); (b) articles written in English; (c) analyses of only RPL female patients having at least two or more previous pregnancy losses and compared with a control group. This analysis will present selected scientific evidence, addressing the questions concerning the association between the H1299R variant and RPL, hoping to clarify this still unresolved issue. PROSPERO registration number: CRD42022330077.
