Recent studies have suggested that macrophages colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), a hematopoietic glycoprotein essential to the proliferation and differentiation of mononuclear phagocytes and their progenitor cells, is also involved in the reproductive process in mice and humans. In this study, we examined, by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, the supernatants of stromal cell-enriched fraction (SF) of human nonpregnant endometrium for the presence of M-CSF during culture with progesterone (P… CONTINUE READING
