Abstract

The study of immunologic factors in infertility is in its infancy, and many questions remain to be answered. Further studies using newer techniques are needed to elucidate the actual contributions of immune mechanisms to infertility. Understanding the role of immunologic factors should lead to more effective treatment of patients whose infertility is immunologic in etiology.
