Editorial Reviews

The proceedings of a September 1992 symposium in Bordeaux, France, focusing on the biochemical and molecular mechanisms that program the generation of reciprocal maternal and embryonic signals in pregnant humans and animals. The 32 papers cover experimental and clinical studies of uterine receptivity, pregnancy recognition, endometrial responses to receptivity, and prospects for research in the coming decade. Reproduced from typescripts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
