In this chapter, we review the main characteristics of 3 murine abortion models, the Mus Caroli Mus Musculus system [which proved to be NOT of immunological origin], and the CBA x BALB/c, CBA x DBA/2 model, as well as the B10 x B10.A model. We also envisage the across species Donkey in horse system.
