The Paternal Contribution to Fetal Tolerance



Fig. 10.1
Hypothetical scenario on the immune modulatory capacity of seminal fluid. After contact with paternal antigens a rather tolerant immune response is generated. The graphic illustrates the interactions between immune cells at different compartments
