Placental Proteins as Tumor Markers

  • Torgny Stigbrand

Part of the Contemporary Biomedicine book series (CB, volume 2)


The placenta was long regarded as a simple barrier between mother and fetus. As readily available tissue, it has more recently attracted interest from several biological fields. In research on malignancy, on the mechanisms of transplantation rejection, and even on aging, useful information can be obtained from studies of the growth, development, and rejection of the placenta (Beaconsfield and Ginsburg, 1979).
