PRAKASH, A., TUCKERMAN, E., LAIRD, S., OLA, B., LI, T. C. and LEDGER, W. L. (2008). A preliminary study comparing the endometrial expression of inhibin, activin and follistatin in women with a history of implantation failure after IVF treatment and a control group. British journal of obstetrics and gynaecology, 115 (4), 532-536.Full text not available from this repository.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of activin: beta A and beta B subunit and follistatin in endometrium of women with implantation failure (n = 10) and compare it with a fertile control group (n = 7). Immunohistochemical staining intensity for follistatin in the endometrial glandular epithelium from women with implantation failure were significantly lower than that in control women (P = 0.03). The decreased expression of follistatin in epithelial cells in the endometrium of women with implantation failure after in vitro fertilisation (IVF) may suggest that follistatin may play a role in the implantation process.
