BACKGROUND Inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins (PG), chemokines, cytokines and their interactions regulate reproductive functions. The relationship between PG and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) has not been elucidated in human endometrium. The presence of hCG receptors in the human endometrium suggests that this embryonic signal may exert a local function in this tissue. Our objectives were to investigate the possible association between PG and MCP-1 and to examine the… CONTINUE READING
