This volume contains the proceedings of the International Symposium on Embryo Implantation: Molecular, Cellular and Clinical Aspects, held f rom October 3-6, 1997 in Newport Beach, California. Internationally re cognized experts discuss the development and future of human in vitro fertilization and embryo implantation, the cellular aspects of implant ation, hormonal regulation, molecular markers of receptivity, trophobl ast factors, primate models and animal studies, and transcriptional re gulation of maternal-fetal recognition.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
