Finally, an extensive list of placental findings associated with disease conditions is presented in an easy-to-read table format. EMBRYOLOGIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE PLACENTA Shortly after fertilization takes place in the ampullary portion of the fallopian tube, the fertilized ovum or zygote begins dividing into a ball of cells called a morula. As the morula enters the uterus (by the fourth day after fertilization), it forms a central cystic area and is called a blastocyst. The blastocyst implants within the endometrium by day 7 (Moore, 1988).

In addition, the trophoblast secretes a sialomucin coating over its outer surface, which shields the trophoblast from maternal recognition. Finally, the trophoblast produces extremely high levels of progesterone, which is known to effectively suppress mitogen activation, mixed lymphocyte reactions, and cytotoxic T-cell generation in human blood lymphocytes (Stites et al, 1985; SzekeresBartho et al, 1985). Historically, one mechanism that was thought to prevent maternal rejection of the embryo was the develop- ment of “blocking antibodies” (Rocklin et al, 1976).
