Numerous experiments have been performed to try to explain the successful gestation of the semiallogeneic mammalian fetus in the immuno-competent mother. A popular hypothesis is that localized intra uterine suppression mediates the immune response and contributes directly to the survival of the fetus. Suppressive factors synthesized at the fetomaternal(More)
The concentration of interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R) on maternal, cord blood and unrelated nulliparous mononuclear cells has been studied after a previous phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) stimulation. Furthermore, the inhibitive action of maternal and cord blood serum on the IL-2R expression of stimulated nulliparous and cord blood lymphocytes has been shown. A(More)
In this report, the potential inhibitive action, of maternal serum (retroplacental and peripheral), and cord blood serum on the expression of the Il2r has been studied. Calf and male serum were used as a control. In order to have an optimal Il2r expression, a previous PHA cellular stimulation was performed. The maternal serum's Il2r inhibitive property was(More)
