Resumen : Abstract: In pigs, given the type of epitheliochorial and non-invasive placenta, the trophoblast is in intimate contact with maternal tissues. The dialogue established between the conceptus and the endometrium involves, among others, the immune system, which minimizes the chances of rejection of the embryo and promotes the establishment of pregnancy. The aim of this work was to determine the concentration of IL-1β, IL-2 and IL-4 in sera and in extracts of maternal and fetal placenta from sows of different gestational periods. Reproductive tracts from 23 crossbreed sows, between 30 and 114 days of gestation (dg), and from 8 non-pregnant sows were used. The concentration of the cytokines was determined by ELISA. IL-1β, IL-2 and IL-4 demonstrated a similar pattern of concentration at the placental interface and serum; they were found elevated in tissues at 30 and 60-70 dg, and significantly decreased at term, period in which the cytokines were significantly increased in serum. These results show that IL-1β, IL-2, and IL-4 are differentially modulated during pregnancy and at term, and suggest an important role of these cytokines in defining the proinflammatory stage of these periods.
