    Snowy: I just came across Dr. Russell name. I'll PM you.

    I have asked this few times. Sorry for repeating it. I know few of us on here are very interested in interpretating the biopsy result. Can someone shed a light on what is considered normal for CD 56 and 57? My report doesn't mention anything about Xx sqmm but in HPF unit (rate?).

I truly feel that's it's the infusions particularly for me the IVIG that are most important. The steroids helped to control my very high ANAs 1/640 and i was on 2mg of Dex fro day 1 of cycle till 9 weeks when I swapped to 25mg of prednisolone and now I am 19 weeks and down to 15ng of prednisolone. I also took Neupogen till 10 weeks but for me that was to try and prevent miscarriage. I
    should also mention that I am 6ft and was 80kg so hence 20g IVIG and Neupogen is by body weight too and my high dose of steroids maybe connected to my size.
    Thanks for your info... I too pushed for dex... was just getting chemicals with prednisone... and in my experience and research... your body gets use to the steriods so effectiveness drops..I never got a bfp until I introduced the steroids.... I was on 25 prednisone and i refused to go higher.... hence the swap.... im a pushy nurse <img src="images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" smilieid="92" class="inlineimg" my dd was conceived with 1 of dex and ds was 25 prednisone so you can never tell which will work really..... my dd I swapped to pred at heartbeat scan ... and with both weened off by 12 weeks... all pretty much as dr beers book .... my new bible lol....
    Again thank you so much for your info

    @MGC Bertie-sorry to hear your consult didn't go well. I get the feeling from Dr M and G that forums like this and google drive them nuts. No excuse though especially when we're paying so much. And most of us have learnt the hard way that it's our own research and insistence that gets us somewhere. When I asked about the overseas testing he told me that there wasn't much point as it wouldn't change my treatment. Not sure if he thinks the same with you. @snow12-good luck with your appointment and decision tomorrow. We're looking at surrogacy as a back up option too if these last two transfers don't work. We would probably go to India because both our names go on the birth certificate there. @bbhope-sorry not sure about norm for NK cells, my report gives no guide either. My explanation from Dr M was that my CD56+ uterine cells of 95per hfp were about a 7/10! Not a very scientific explanation!

    Bertie sorry for your experience... I have recently heard of someone going to Dr Christine Kirby from Repromed or A/Prof Kelton there - they are in Adelaide and an alternative to Dr M I believe but that is all I'm aware of. Maybe get in to talk to her and see what she says???

    Re Prof Russell all I know is that he did the NK cell count on my uterine biopsy! he is retired according to the FS who did the biopsy.. my report says "reported by Prof Peter Russell"

    In terms of the biopsy results mine were given in per mm squared and also cell density. I think it is saying that (it's an old, dodgy looking report format!)

    For CD163+ marcophage cells
    25th percentile is 160 per mm squared
    Mean is 230
    75th percentile is 280
    For CD56+ uNK cell count:
    25th percentile is 8.1%
    Mean is 13.8%
    75th percentile is 18.1%
    It doesn't give these for CD57+ uNK cells but says "A cell count for CD57+ NK cells >10/mm2 is above the 75th percentile and probably abnormal."

    The thing that is REALLY disturbing me is one little sentence that says: Foxp3+ (regulatory) T-cells are present at approximately 0 per mm squared."

    Now from what I have found this is NOT good... my FS is clueless about it, Dr M didn't say anything but I will ask him again on my call tomorrow. The small amount of stuff I have found says that women with reduced Foxp3 cells have higher infertility.. and I have NONE. All I have found really is a study on mice with selenium supplementation being good for increasing them it seems - also Bertie did you know selenium seems to be something good for thyroid, did you know this???

    http://jmcb.oxfordjournals.org/conte....full.pdf+html

    Also regarding chlorella, spirulina and inositol - I recently have read that they strengthen NK cells!!!! and I was taking chlorella and inositol so am a bit mad about that and stopped them a couple of months ago...

    anyway - does anyone have any information on Foxp3 cells or can you tell me what it says about your level on your biopsy report if it's there???

    Thanks ladies XXX

    Thanks BB. I got your PM. I can't message back as it says you need to delete messages. I think that is the guy. Thanks so much for the information.

    Preciousheart: thanks for sharing your result. I certainly will not discount prof Russell's report. He is well known in the field and has published a lot of good papers. DrM sent the biopsy to a different lab. I am not sure if it is deliberate so only him can understand the result. The reason I am asking you ladies to help with the interpretation is that my report doesn't even say what is the normal range. Every proper pathology report should include it.

    To add, I have 25hpf. CD 57 is low but Cd 4 and Cd 8 are super high. If I remember correctly, (not sure as my mobile phone reception was bad), DrM said above 20hpf is abnormal. My BT is elevated as well.

    I had mine done with Dr M and never received anything.

    Got my phone consult with him on 21 July. Not even sure what to ask him!!
