Research and Expertise:
- The title of my PhD thesis was: "Long-lasting effects of steroid and steroid-like treatments in early periods of ontogenesis". In this work compounds with steroid structure and/or non-steroid ligands were applied, binding to steroid receptors. These chemicals were administered to rats at pre- or neonatal age.
- The role of histamine in the reproductive processes:
a.) Steroid alterations in male HDC KO mice
b.) The Th1/Th2 shift alterations in pregnant HDC KO mice.
- At present, I am studying the role of microvesicles (MV-s) in the immunological regulation of pregnancy.
a. ) Studies on humans: the role of MV-s isolated from the sera of healthy and asthmatic pregnant and non-pregnant women.
b.) Studies on mice: the role of Mv-s isolated from the sera of HDC KO and wild type mice, pregnant and non-pregnant.
