BACKGROUND Following implantation, endometrial stroma is transformed into decidual tissue via a complex remodeling process. In parallel with that process, a significant increase in immune cells can be detected.

In this study, we therefore compared chemokine and cytokine expression in the first- and third-trimester nonpregnant endometrium and decidua… CONTINUE READING
