The role of seminal fluid extracellular vesicles in human endometrial receptivity

Abstract:

Embryo implantation is a key limiting factor to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) success, the main treatment of subfertility. A successful embryo implantation requires the endometrium to be receptive, which involves embryo-endometrium crosstalk, decidualisation, and modulation of the maternal immune system.
