Description / Abstract:

Preface to the first edition

The Endometrium is a research-oriented text devoted to a comprehensive multidisciplinary account of the uterine endometrium. This book is the first to focus on the endometrium in terms of defining the regulatory biological interrelationships between epithelial and stromal cell phenotypes, endothelial cells, extra-cellular matrix and immunobiological elements. The aim is to provide a parent language and the principles to translate our diverse understandings of reproductive cyclicity and embryo–endometrial interrelationships into a vocabulary common to all investigators and students. This base will also serve to establish the endometrium, intellectually and technically, as a singular, productive, fundamental biological model system for investigators from a broad spectrum of disciplines interested in the regulatory biology of cell–cell, cell substratum and reciprocal paracrine communication. This cardinal information will be complemented by emerging studies of oncology, aging and gene expression.
