Defective production of interleukin-11 by decidua and chorionic villi in human anembryonic pregnancy.
Previous study demonstrated that IL-11 receptor alpha knockout female mice (IL-11Ralpha(-/-)) were phenotypically normal but infertile due to defective decidualization. However, the role of IL-11Expand

Lysophosphatidic acid mediates interleukin-8 expression in human endometrial stromal cells through its receptor and nuclear factor-kappaB-dependent pathway: a possible role in angiogenesis of
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a pleiotropic phospholipid molecule involved in inflammation, angiogenesis, would healing, and cancer invasion. Whereas serum lysophospholipase D activity increases inExpand

Increased frequency of genital human papillomavirus infection in human immunodeficiency virus-seropositive Taiwanese women.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is associated with increased incidence and severity of HPV-related cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer in women with humanExpand

Age is a better predictor of pregnancy potential than basal follicle-stimulating hormone levels in women undergoing in vitro fertilization.
OBJECTIVE To analyze to what extent the parameters of ovarian functional reserve including female age and basal FSH levels will affect the results of ovarian hyperstimulation and IVF outcome. Expand

Nitric oxide is associated with poor embryo quality and pregnancy outcome in in vitro fertilization cycles.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between follicular and serum nitric oxide (NO) levels and embryo development and outcome in IVF. DESIGN Prospective, case-control study. SETTING UniversityExpand

Nitric oxide synthesis is increased in the endometrial tissue of women with endometriosis.
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that peritoneal macrophages from women with endometriosis produce excess nitric oxide (NO). This study was designed to quantify the amount of NO and determineExpand

Expression of the interleukin-2 receptor alpha (CD25) is selectively decreased on decidual CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes in normal pregnancies.
In a previous study, we demonstrated that the proportion of activated T cells (CD69+CD3+ and HLA-DR+CD3+) is higher in the endometrium and decidua after the luteal phase and throughout earlyExpand

Lysophosphatidic acid up-regulates expression of growth-regulated oncogene-alpha, interleukin-8, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 in human first-trimester trophoblasts: possible roles in
The serum lysophospholipase D activity and production of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) increase in women with pregnancy. The effects of LPA on human placenta tissue remained unclear. We investigate theExpand
