A recent study in the journal Science offers insights into the mechanism behind feto-maternal tolerance, as evidenced by changes in the immuno-logical environment of the uterus and decidua. They also provide a rich area of research for the understanding of the regulation of the immune system in other complicated medical conditions, including cancer and pregnancies affected by infection or autoimmunity.
