Abstract

Progesterone acting via its cognate receptor is critical to maintaining a viable endometrial environment for implantation and pregnancy. During medical termination of pregnancy, the biological effect of progesterone is pharmacologically withdrawn and prostaglandins administered exogenously. Leukocytes within the uterus are the effector cells of an inflammatory response and play important roles in both tissue breakdown and remodeling.
