Early Talk between the Fetus and the Mother

In the recent publication in scientific reports Dr. Mor’s group reports a novel mechanism of immune regulation by the fetus. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin secreted by the embryo is able to modify the secretion of inflammatory signals by the maternal cells and therefor allowing the acceptance of the pregnancy this is a unique demonstration how the fetus contributes to educate the maternal immune cells to prevent rejection. This work was in collaboration with investigators at Yale University and the university of Buenos Aires Argentina.In the recent publication in scientific reports Dr. Mor’s group reports a novel mechanism of immune regulation by the fetus.
