Infertility: A Crossroad of Faith, Medicine, and Technology brings together a diverse group of clinicians, theologians, and philosophers to examine the use of reproductive technologies in the light of the Roman Catholic moral tradition and recent teaching. The book provides relevant background information (e.g. Donum Vitae from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) as it explores the psychological, social, legal, and moral contexts of reproductive medicine. This book is Volume 3 of Catholic Studies in Bioethics in the series Philosophy and Medicine.
Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine reviews our understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in conception, pregnancy, labor, and birth, and how molecular techniques are being applied to reproductive and perinatal health. The contributors discuss the gene expression profiles and epigenetic characteristics of sperm, the ovary, the endometrium, and the placenta, as well as the molecules involved in feto-maternal communication, including various endocrine, vascular, and immune factors. They also consider how we can harness this knowledge to improve fertility, conception rates, and embryo implantation success, leading to healthy, full-term pregnancies.
