Many underlying causes of human infertility have been overcome by using in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET) techniques. Nevertheless, implantation rates in IVF programs remain low despite the transfer of apparently healthy embryos. This suggests that there are problems with the differentiation of the uterus to the receptive state in response to the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. The molecular basis of this receptive state when the uterine environment is conducive… CONTINUE READING
