Choriodecidual production of interleukin-8 and mechanism of parturition.

Abstract

Both prostaglandins and antiprogestagens can induce labour and ripen the cervix, but the mechanisms are unclear. The collagenases that bring about cervical ripening are neutrophil derived. We examined the potential of uterine tissues to control neutrophil attraction by measuring interleukin-8 production. Choriodecidual cells in culture produced substantial… (More)
