    Eating one's own placenta (placentophagy) is undergoing a small revival in Western cultures. Some view this as a way of celebrating the placenta's significance and/or promoting postpartum physical and mental health. Placenta encapsulation is becoming a popular method of preparing the placenta...

    Pre-eclampsia is a major disorder of human pregnancy, which may have an immunological basis. It is a disease of two stages. The first stage concerns the relative failure of early trophoblast invasion and remodelling of the spiral arteries, leading to a poor blood supply to the placenta, exposing...

    Gastrokines (GKNs) were originally described as stomach-specific tumor suppressor genes. Recently, we identified GKN1 in extravillous trophoblasts (EVT) of human placenta. GKN1 treatment reduced the migration of the trophoblast cell line JEG-3. GKN2 is known to inhibit the proliferation,...
