The Pregnancy and Lactation Autoimmune Network (PLAN) registry was established to evaluate the concerns of women with autoimmune or inflammatory rheumatic diseases (AIRD) pertaining to pregnancy and lactation
Antibodies that recognize the phosphatidylserine/prothrombin complex (antiphosphatidylserine/prothrombin antibodies; aPS/PT) might reveal enhanced thrombotic risk in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. Little is known about their association with pregnancy complications in the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
In this review, we will describe the immunologic aspects of pregnancy
and tolerance, with an emphasis on the crucial role of vitamin D as a regulatory factor, which contributes to the prevention of immune-mediated Recurrent pregnancy loss.

Women with systemic lupus erythematosus and/or antiphospholipid antibodies are at increased risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes, including preeclampsia, fetal and neonatal death and fetal growth restriction.
