Abstract:

Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) compatibility has been reported to facilitate the long-term tolerance of fetal or maternally derived stem cells exchanged during pregnancy. Furthermore, such compatibility has been suggested to play a role in fetal viability. An increase in maternal - fetal human leukocyte antigen (HLA) compatibility for class II DR alleles has previously been observed in the autoimmune disease scleroderma. Here, we examined the hypothesis that increased maternal - fetal...
