The endometrium regulates the inflammatory response after infection by production and release of cytokines and chemokines. The objective was to compare gene expression of important pro-inflammatory (TNFα, IL-1β, IL-6) and anti-inflammatory (IL-10) cytokines, and the main neutrophil chemokine (IL-8), from calving to Week 7 after calving, in cows that developed endometritis and healthy control cows. Uterine biopsies were obtained at calving and at Weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7. Endometritis was evaluated… CONTINUE READING
