Higher rates of low birth weight and prematurity are observed in pregnancies generated with assisted reproduction technologies (ART). Both conditions have been associated with placental inflammation and oxidative stress. Since placental and fetal levels of progesterone, a major anti-inflammatory steroid, are decreased in murine ART, we investigated(More)
