Pregnancy results in the transfer of stem cells from the fetus to the maternal circulation. These cells are able to migrate and differentiate within various damaged maternal tissues. We recently showed the presence of fetal‐derived cells in human breast carcinomas during pregnancy. In this study, we aimed to reproduce these results in a murine model of “pregnancy‐associated” breast carcinoma. We bred virgin MMTV‐H‐Ras transgenic female mice with male mice transgenic for luciferase under the… 
Fetal microchimeric cells participate in tumour angiogenesis in melanomas occurring during pregnancy.
TLDR
It is shown that melanomas during pregnancy frequently harbor fetal cells that have an endothelial phenotype, which is needed to assess whether the fetal contribution to lymphangiogenesis may alter the prognosis of the maternal tumor.
Fetal cell microchimerism in cancer: a meaningful event?
TLDR
The influence of pregnancy on the occurrence and evolution of maternal tumors has been long debated and the transfer and persistence of fetal cells in maternal circulation and tissues during and after pregnancy is described.
Novel insights into the link between fetal cell microchimerism and maternal cancers
TLDR
Biological mechanisms by which fetal cell microchimerism is believed to modulate the protection against cancer development or tumor progression will be discussed, together with findings in animal models.
Fetal microchimerism as an explanation of disease
TLDR
The mechanisms by which fetal cell microchimerism is believed to modulate the protection against cancer or tumor progression will be discussed, together with future research directions.
Fetomaternal microchimerism
TLDR
It is shown that pregnancy associated progenitor cells indeed express neural stem cell and markers for developing neurons in the brain and that PAPCs morphological mature into neurons over time.
Fetal-cell microchimerism, lymphopoiesis, and autoimmunity
During all human and murine pregnancies, fetal cells enter the maternal circulation and tissues and may persist there for decades. The immune consequences of this phenomenon have been explored for
Fetal stem cell microchimerism: natural-born healers or killers?
TLDR
Unraveling the function of FMC cells will provide insight into both their engagement in disease and their therapeutic potential, as well as provide evidence for their stemness.
Fetal cell microchimerism and cancer: a nexus of reproduction, immunology, and tumor biology.
TLDR
This research will require further study using a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating knowledge of the fetomaternal relationship, tumor biology, immunology, and clinical oncology.
Fetal microchimerism: the cellular and immunological legacy of pregnancy
TLDR
The phenomenon of fetal microchimerism provokes many questions and promises to offer further insights not only into the biology of pregnancy but fields such as autoimmunity, transplantation biology and oncology.

Breast cancer stroma frequently recruits fetal derived cells during pregnancy
TLDR
Findings demonstrate the frequent presence of foetal derived cells essentially in tumour stroma in breast carcinomas associated with pregnancy, and raise the issue of whether foetals can be targeted to influence tumour behaviour.
Early phase of maternal skin carcinogenesis recruits long‐term engrafted fetal cells
TLDR
This study shows that long‐term engrafted fetal cells home to early stage skin tumours where they participate in formation of the stroma.
Transfer of fetal cells with multilineage potential to maternal tissue.
TLDR
The detection of microchimeric male cells, bearing epithelial, leukocyte, or hepatocyte markers, in a variety of maternal tissue specimens suggests the presence of fetal cells that may have multilineage capacity in maternal organs.
Maternal neoangiogenesis during pregnancy partly derives from fetal endothelial progenitor cells
TLDR
It is implied that fetal endothelial progenitor cells are acquired by the mother and participate in maternal angiogenesis during pregnancy, using various techniques to find the presence of Fetal endothelial cells lining blood vessels in maternal sites of inflammation.
Fetal microchimerism in women with breast cancer.
TLDR
The findings indicate that allogeneic FMc may contribute to reduction in risk of breast cancer, and further studies are indicated and, if confirmed, extended studies to examine whether allogeneIC immune surveillance from FMc is deficient in women with breast cancer.
Fetal cells participate over time in the response to specific types of murine maternal hepatic injury.
TLDR
The results of this preliminary study suggest that specific types of injury may elicit different fetal cell responses in maternal organs, and there is a significant effect of time on fetal cell presence in liver and spleen.
Fetal Microchimerism in the Maternal Mouse Brain: A Novel Population of Fetal Progenitor or Stem Cells Able to Cross the Blood–Brain Barrier?
TLDR
Although further studies are required to determine whether such engraftment of the maternal brain has any physiological or pathophysiological functional significance, fetomaternal microchimerism provides a novel model for the experimental investigation of the properties of fetal progenitor or stem cells in the brain without prior in vitro manipulation.
Male fetal progenitor cells persist in maternal blood for as long as 27 years postpartum.
TLDR
The data demonstrate the continued maternal circulation of fetalCD34+ or CD34+CD38+ cells from a prior pregnancy, which may represent a human analogue of the microchimerism described in the mouse and may have significance in development of tolerance of the fetus.
Fetal cells in mother rats contribute to the remodeling of liver and kidney after injury.
