PreImplantation factor prevents atherosclerosis via its immunomodulatory effects without affecting serum lipids.

Abstract

PreImplantation factor (PIF) is a 15-amino acid peptide endogenously secreted by viable embryos, regulating/enabling maternal (host) acceptance/tolerance to the "invading" embryo (allograft) all-while preserving maternal immunity to fight infections.
