Human Reproduction is a very complex and surprisingly inefficient process. The embryo development and the generation of a receptive endometrium needs an exact timing and synchronization. Understanding the factors involved in preimplantation embryo development and embryomaternal interaction and implantation is crucial for improving success rates in reproductive medicine. The purpose of the present review is to describe briefly the function of adhesion- and hormonal factors, cytokines, growth factors and metalloproteinases. A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of implantation will be responsible for the improvement of clinical and therapeutical management of sterility, infertility and contraception.
