Vascular-leukocyte interactions: mechanisms of human decidual spiral artery remodeling in vitro.

Abstract

Transformation of uterine spiral arteries is critical for healthy human pregnancy. We recently proposed a role for maternal leukocytes in decidual spiral artery remodeling and suggested that matrix metalloprotease (MMP) activity contributed to the destruction of the arterial wall. In the current study we used our first trimester placental-decidual co… (More)
