The increase of the number of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) in peripheral blood during pregnancy is well known. Granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been found to act as a hemopoietic factor for PMN. This study analyzed G-CSF concentrations in the peripheral blood of pregnant women and examined whether decidual tissue acted as source of G-CSF production. The proliferation of chorionic cells measured by [3H]-thymidine uptake and its association with G-CSF were also examined… CONTINUE READING
