Immunology of pregnancy
The immune system of the mother (maternal immune system) plays an important role in the completion of a healthy pregnancy. In complex terms, pregnancy is a multifaceted immunological condition. So, it is important to assess the many immunological processes during this period. A successful pregnancy needs a healthy, active and responsive immune system. The fetal and maternal survival can be directly affected by the immune responses that are associated with them. Pregnancy is also considered as a phase characterized by high risk of bacterial and viral infection. The proper development and functioning of both the placenta and fetus are governed by various cells and molecules of the immune system.
