About the Authors
  • This is the first dedicated, in-depth account of trophoblast: the tissue derived from the fertilized egg that nourishes and protects the developing fetus. The cells of the trophoblast have many unique qualities, and exhibit great variability across different species. It has a fascinating role in the development of the placenta and as a regulator during early growth of the embryo. These aspects are all fully covered as well as studies on why it is not rejected by the mother as 'foreign' tissue. This volume provides an up-to-date summary of the state of current knowledge and offers some glimpses as to future development on the scientific and clinical front.

    • Covers reproductive immunology, genetics and pathology
    • Basic science and clinical aspects dealt with in depth
    • Of interest and relevance to all who study the placenta

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Readers who want a more scientific treatise on the wonders of the placenta should peruse Biology and Pathology of Trophoblast...provide succinct yet comprehensive introductions to a number of important immunologic concepts pertinent to the process of placentation and the maintenance of pregnancy. Many interesting facts about placental immunology are shared."
    Drucilla J. Robers, M.D., Massachusetts General Hospital, New England Journal of Medicine.
