Overview

Immunology of Reproduction is a comprehensive review that describes the latest developments in reproductive immunology. The book focuses on the broad areas of infertility, pregnancy loss, and immunocontraception. Specific topics covered within infertility include the significance of antisperm antibodies and the sperm antigens involved, cell-mediated immunity, pathogenesis of endometriosis, and reproductive immunology of HIV infection. The section on pregnancy loss describes the unique role that immunology plays during pregnancy, both in fetal survival as well as in fetal demise. The book's section on immunocontraception describes the latest status of anti-hCG birth control vaccine and the development of potential contraceptive vaccines based upon LHRH, FSH, sperm and zona pellucida antigens.
Immunology of Reproduction is a "must have" reference volume for all scientists working in andrology, fertilization, and embryology. Clinical practitioners working in reproductive endocrinology and maternal-fetal medicine will find the volume indispensable.
