Cytokines are proteins that regulate interactions between different cells in the body and therefore contribute to the "dialogue" between them. It is logical to think that this interaction or dialogue between the endometrium and the embryo is modulated, among others, by this set of proteins called cytokines. Their function is key, and each day it is understood a little better what is the role they play and what is their true relevance.
How important are cytokines in the embryo implantation process?
