Inflammatory processes are involved in the initiation and maintenance of labor, suggesting that Toll-like receptor (TLR) activity within gestation-associated tissues, such as the placenta, might contribute to the process of parturition. Expression of transcripts for TLR1-TLR10 was examined in term (>37 wk of gestation) human placentas collected in the absence of labor (elective caesarean sections; ECS; n = 11) and after the completion of labor (normal vaginal delivery; NVD; n = 12). Placental… CONTINUE READING
