Abstract

ABSTRACT: Pregnancy in rat is able to stimulate two suppressor cell activities. One is specific to the paternal histocompatibility antigens and it resides in the T-Iym-phocyte population. The second is nonspecific and is of non-T nature. The use of various methods for pseudo-pregnancy and deciduoma installation has allowed the demonstration of two inducing circuits: (a) the presence of fertilized ova in the female genital tract and (b) the progestation hormonal status.
