The article presents the results of a study conducted by researchers in China that compared the expression profiles of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and its receptors in occluded tubes of infertile women versus controls. The study examined the correlation of TGF-β1 with postsurgical pregnancy outcomes. It showed the negative association between the expression profile of TGF-β1 in occluded fallopian tubes of infertile women and pregnancy outcome after surgery.
