    Mechanisms of Fetal Inflammatory Response Syndrome Induced by Chorioamnionitis

    NIH-NICHD   R01 HD57869

    This project will study the pathogenesis of fetal systemic inflammatory response syndrome (FIRS) in preterm fetuses exposed to endotoxin-induced chorioamnionitis in sheep. The grant will also evaluate the fetal innate immune responses to chorioamnionitis and how endotoxin tolerance modulates FIRS.
