Abstract

The passage of colloidal particles through the small blood vessels of the uterus and ovary during periods of increased vascular permeability is primarily an extracellular one. In contrast to conditions of pronounced inflammation, the intercellular junction of the endothelial cells does not generally increase or open. These findings suggest that the passage of large molecules from the microcirculation occurs at the junctions between endothelial cells.
