    For mammalian pregnancy to succeed, large physiological adjustments are required in the mother: these changes result from signals passing between the conceptus (especially the trophoblast) and the mother throughout pregnancy. Every system in the body is affected, including the immune system, which is part of a complex signalling system between cells that has developed the ability to recognise.   The immunology of pregnancy is complex and, for many years, has been viewed according to “classical” concepts similar to those at the basis of organ transplantation. One of the classical concepts is that pregnancy is associated with immune suppression, or “immunological weakness” so to avoid rejection of the fetus—which is seen as a.

    Affiliated with the European Society of Reproductive Immunology and with the International Society for Immunology of Reproduction. The aim of the Journal of Reproductive Immunology is to provide the critical forum for the dissemination of results from high quality research in all aspects of experimental, animal and clinical reproductive immunobiology. In the late s Tom Wegmann put forward the formative “Th1/Th2” hypothesis of pregnancy success, 4,5 which influenced reproductive immunology research substantially through the s. This hypothesis was founded in an understanding emerging in the early s, that Th cells can be categorized as Th1 cells, which produce inflammatory cytokines, or Th2 cells, which produce anti.

      During normal pregnancy, the human decidua contains a high number of immune cells, such as macrophages, natural killer (NK) cells and regulatory T cells (Treg). Seventy percent of decidual leukocytes are NK cells, 20–25% are macrophages and % are dendritic cells. 2, 4, 5 From the adaptive immune system, B cells are absent, but T Cited by: Immunology begins with the basic concepts and then details the immuno-logical aspects of various disease states involving major organs of the body. The book explores how we can better understand disease and its treatment through clinical immunology. Looking forward, each chapter concludes with patterns for future research.

About this book. Keywords. Antigen autoimmune disease autoimmunity fetus pregnancy. Immunology of Pregnancy provides a detailed examination of the fetomaternal relationship, including discussions on the cytokine network and the role of progesterone in an immunosuppressive network in pregnancy.

Reviews on animal models of immune abortion, in addition to new data on decidua and suppression factors, are included as well. Immunology of Pregnancy is the first book to give a complete and up to date review of our knowledge related to the role of the immune system during pregnancy and the interactions between the placenta and the maternal immune system.

Mammalian pregnancy, which features gametes and embryos expressing proteins derived from disparate maternal and paternal genes, presents a serious challenge to the maternal immune system. Immune function is altered during pregnancy to protect the fetus from an immunological attack without disrupting protection against infection.

Finally, pregnancy is the only known physiological phenomenon where the once named “suppressor T cells,” re-emerge as “regulatory T cells”, and play a cardinal role. This E-book provides a complete compendium of gynecological immunology, spanning from fecundation to delivery. This treatment of the immunology of human pregnancy should be of use to both the clinician and basic scientist.

Since then, the immunology of pregnancy has been the leading subject within reproductive immunology research. Yet, the question of why the semi‐allogeneic fetus is not rejected by the mother remains unresolved.
