Abstract

Immunohistochemical analysis of tissue specimens from human pregnancy decidua basalis in contact with invasive trophoblast of chorion frondosum and decidua parietalis in contact with non-invasive chorion laeve do not differ in the frequency of lymphoid cells of the following phenotypes (CD2, CD4, CD8, CD14, CD21 and gamma/delta TCR). A practical implication of this observation is that the collection of lymphoid cells from whole decidua by curettage for functional studies is justified.
