Purpose of the study: to determine morphological and biochemical parameters of blood, to perform microbiological investigation of uterus and to inquire into changes of endometrium in postparturition period in dairy cows regarding to physiological and pathological involution of uterus. Targets reachable to achieve the purpose: (1) evaluation of the general health and to conduct involution of uterus; (2) assessment of morphological and biochemical parameters of blood; (3) microbiological examination of the contents of the uteri cavity; (4) assessment of the endometrium morphology and infiltration dynamics of the inflammatory cells; (5) by immunohistochemical methods establish the presence of the tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), nerve growth factor receptors p75 (NGFR p75), protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) – their positive structures and changes of the relative amount expressions in endometrium of cows. Evaluation of occurrence and dynamics of apoptosis or programmed cell death within endometrium of the milking cows over the above period by use of the TUNEL diagnostics method.
