Third International Congress of Reproductive Immunology
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 1-5 July 1986
Sponsored by the International Society for Immunology of Reproduction, the American Society for Immunology of Reproduction, and the Canadian Society of Immunology. The meeting will be held in Toronto, Ontario, immediately prior to the 6th International Congress of Immunology.
The scientific program will include major symposia on trophoblast and gene expres-
sion at the maternofetal interface, antibody responses and outcome of pregnancy, maternal uterine cellular responses (immune and nonimmunological), and practical application of immunologic techniques in the regulation of reproductive success in humans and in animals. Poster sessions and workshops will include such areas as endocrine regulation of immunologic function, trophoblast and decidua in im- munoregulation, immunological contraception, immunotheraphy of pregnancy failure, pregnancy-associated proteins and soluble immunoregulatory factors, MHC and non-MHC antigens relevant to reproduction, and other topics to be announced. An active social program is also being organized.
