Implication of prostaglandin E2 in soluble factor-mediated immune suppression by murine decidual cells.
Cells from the uteri of pregnant mice mediate profound nonantigen-specific and nonmajor histocompatibility complex-restricted immune suppression in vitro. In part, those cells accomplish suppressionExpand

Determination of the Number and Distribution of Macrophages, Lymphocytes, and Granulocytes in the Mouse Uterus From Mating Through Implantation
The concentration and distribution of F4‐80 positive cells (macrophages) and common leukocyte antigen (CLA) positive (bone marrow derived) cells were assessed in mouse uterus between days 1 and 8 ofExpand

Expression of colony-stimulating factors and inflammatory cytokines in the uterus of CD1 mice during days 1 to 3 of pregnancy.
Morphological and immunohistochemical analyses have documented the development of an acute inflammatory response, marked by the early appearance of granulocytes and later infiltration of mononuclearExpand

Cytokines (IL-1β and TNFα) in relation to biochemical and immunological effects of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) in rats
Abstract Previous studies in different strains of rats and mice have shown that the inhibition of gluconeogenesis as a result of reduced liver phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) activityExpand

Antigen expression by cells near the maternal-fetal interface.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the potential for immunologic interaction between the mother and fetus by documenting 1) fetal and maternal cell histocompatibility antigen (HLA)Expand

Expression of interleukin 1, interleukin 6 and tumour necrosis factor alpha in mouse uterus during the peri-implantation period of pregnancy.
Interleukin 1 (IL-1), IL-6 and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) are expressed in the mouse uterus on days 1-3 of pregnancy. Cytokine production is temporally associated with the post-matingExpand

Normal trophoblasts resist induction of class I HLA.
Very few types of normal cells fail entirely to express class I human leukocyte antigens (HLA), and many of those cells (sperm, fetal amnion epithelial cells, and fetal trophoblasts) are related toExpand

Immunohistologic evaluation of the lymphoreticular infiltrate of human central nervous system tumors.
Forty-five nervous system tumors (9 glioblastomas, 9 meningiomas, 15 assorted primary neural tumors including 3 medulloblastomas, and 12 brain tumors metastatic to the brain were analyzed for theirExpand

A Pilot Study of Autologous Cancer Cell Vaccination and Cellular Immunotherapy Using Anti-CD3 Stimulated Lymphocytes in Patients with Recurrent Grade III/IV Astrocytoma
The study objectives were to determine; (1) whether activated T cells could be generated from peripheral blood of patients immunized with their own cancer cells, (2) whether adoptive transfer of theExpand
