Background: Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is described as two or more spontaneous abortions. Until now, although various factors such as genetic, endocrinology, anatomy, immunology, and microbiology have been distinguished that affect abortions, the precise basic etiology in up to 50% of RPL cases are not determined. Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and host genetic background, like IL-6 SNP polymorphisms play important roles in RPL etiology. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate

Materials and methods: This case-control study was carried on 80 Iranian females with RPL and 80 healthy females as control group. The extraction of DNA from samples and detection of CMV and IL6 SNPs were determined by Tetra ARMS-PCR. Finally, the statistical analysis for detection CMV and two polymorphisms roles in RPL were analyzed by Epi Info TM software by X2 test. Results: Our results indicated an increased rate of CMV infection in RPL group (44%) versus the control group (25.45%). Also, the prevalence of IL-6 -634C/G genotype among RPL patients with CMV infection was 80%, while the frequency of this genotype among RPL patients without CMV infection was 50%. Furthermore, no substantial relation was found between IL-6 -174 G/C genotypes and RPL (P ≤0.0001). BesidesConclusion: This study not only indicated a significant role of CMV in RPL, but also showed CMV association with allele G in IL6 -634 among Iranian women. In addition, suggested the use of CMV and IL-6 -634 GG genotypes in RPL as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in Iranian population.
