Investigates the relationship between the immune system and the
developing fetus, and between reproductive processes and pro-
inflammatory mediators, encompassing the basic mechanisms by which
estrogen and progesterone regulate reproductive processes, the role
of pro-inflammatory cellular and molecular processes in the biology
of reproduction, and the cellular and molecular basis for
immunological interactions between the mother and fetus. The 12
studies draw attention to phenomena, or at least curiosities, on the
boundary between immunology and reproductive biology that neither
field has addressed. Distributed in the US by Chapman and Hall.
