Stem cells in the bone marrow improve the chances of pregnancy

In 10 seconds? Researchers have found that stem cells originating in bone marrow can play a key role in successful pregnancies. The hope is that the discovery can become a basis for a new treatment.

What exactly did they discover? The study confirmed that it’s not just egg-producing ovaries and a uterus hosting the embryo that is needed for a successful pregnancy. Following the successful fertilization of an egg, stem cells arriving from the bone marrow to the uterus transform its lining and help the implantation of the embryo. How? They become decidual cells (essential for getting and staying pregnant). If this transformation does not occur, the pregnancy will terminate.
