The Alan E. Beer Center for Reproductive Immunology & Genetics -
The Alan E. Beer Center for Reproductive Immunology & Genetics researches and treats couples who experience recurrent miscarriages, multiple pregnancy losses or repeated in vitro fertilization failures. Through science and a deep understanding of the role of the immune system in pregnancy, we help such couples achieve a successful pregnancy. The Alan E. Beer Center for Reproductive Immunology and Genetics was established by Dr. Alan E. Beer in 2003. An internationally known and respected physician and scientist, Dr. Beer specialized in the treatment of infertility, implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss. Sadly, Dr. Beer passed away in May of 2006. His research shows that there are several categories of immune problems that can cause pregnancy loss, IVF failures and infertility. See: An Introduction to Our Program.
Introduction to our program
Couples who come to the medical center often have had the painful experience of recurrent pregnancy loss or repeat unexplained IVF failure. Many of these couples have already attempted pregnancy with the aid of assisted reproductive technology (ART) without success. For this reason, they often feel desperate and cast a wider net looking for miracles. They might have identified conflicting answers through personal contacts and/ or from various public sources. We understand that couples have been through years of searching and frustration. However, we are not here to offer the latest fad treatment. The diagnostic procedures and therapies practiced at the Center have evolved over many years while they are continually being assessed and developed. See: Overview of Reproductive Immunology. For that reason, we would like patients to read carefully and critically the information provided on this website.
While we do not wish to introduce false hope in our patients, we are pleased to have achieved high success rates in couples who have failed other therapies. Please read the following material that explains the basis for our therapeutic approach. Please remember while reading these materials, that our therapeutic approach owes much of its success to the fact that couples coming to us have already been screened by their failures on other therapies to be amongst those most likely to succeed with our program.
