Abstract Objective: Investigate changes in the cellular component of maternal immune system in a murine preterm delivery model. Methods: C57BL/6J mice were mated and on day 14.5 after plugging either whole blood was harvested or E.coli LPS was intraperitoneally injected. Preterm delivery resulted within 24hrs. 10-12hs after LPS injection (initiation of labour) whole blood was harvested. Annexin-V, CD3, CD4, CD8, CD80 and CD86 were counted after running through flow cytometer with gating for mononuclear cells. Control group consisted of non-pregnant mice. Results: Rate of apoptosis of monocytes and lymphocytes and expression of CD80(+) and CD86(+) was increased in non-pregnant mice after LPS injection (p=0.009, p=0.002, p<0.001 and p=0.005 respectively), but remained unaltered in pregnant mice. Expression of CD3(+)/4(+ )and CD3(+)/8(+ )on lymphocytes was increased after LPS injection in both pregnant (p=0.001, p=0.011 respectively) and non-pregnant mice (p=0.008, p<0.001 respectively). Conclusions: Cellular component of maternal non-specific immune system is remain suppressed in pregnant mice, whereas specific immune responses of pregnant mice to infection are similar to these of non-pregnant mice.
