Preeclampsia (PE) is a serious disorder of human pregnancy and always is accompanied with multi-organ disorder, which severely threatens the health of both the mothers and the offspring. The oxidative stress and genetic factors involves in the development of PE. The Klotho encodes Klotho protein that is capable of increasing resistance to oxidative stress. Thus, we designed this case-control study to investigate the association between Klotho polymorphisms and the susceptibility to PE in Chinese Han women. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs1207568 and rs564481) in Klotho were selected to be genotyped in 1002 PE patients and 1384 normal controls with TaqMan allelic discrimination real-time PCR technology...

BACKGROUND: Hypertensive disorders, fetal growth restriction and preterm birth are major obstetrical complications and are related to impaired placentation. Early identification of impaired placentation can advance clinical care by preventing or postpone adverse pregnancy outcome. OBJECTIVES: Determine whether sonographic assessed placental vascular development and concomitant changes in inflammation- and/or angiogenesis-related serumproteins differ in the first trimester between uncomplicated pregnancies and pregnancies with adverse outcome...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the presence of urinary congophilia amongIndian patients with preeclampsia. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective case control study in which congophilia of urine samples from preeclamptic pregnant women (n = 62) and normotensive pregnant women (n = 65) was compared by using Congo Red Dot Blot assay. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Presence of urinary congophilia. RESULTS: Mean percentage of Congo Red Retention was 37...

Pre-eclampsia may be associated with cardiac complications including pulmonary oedema. Nine studies examining whether pre-eclampsia is associated with elevated levels of cardiac troponin (cTnI) revealed inconsistent results. In this study high sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hscTnI) levels were measured in 40 asymptomatic women with pre-eclampsia . HscTnI was elevated in ten (25%) women. A linear correlation between peak mean arterial pressure and log hscTnI was demonstrated.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the association between 24-hr blood pressure variability (BPV) and subclinical echocardiographic changes and microalbuminuria in normotensive women with history of preeclampsia/eclampsia. BACKGROUND: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) has been used as a valuable method in determining cardiovascular (CV) risk and target organ damage. Although hypertension and proteinuria that define preeclampsia/eclampsia may resolve in the majority of women, a significantly greater risk of CV and renal disease is present in their later life...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether serum concentrations of saturated (SFAs), polyunsaturated (PUFAs), and monounsaturated (MUFAs) fatty acids are associated with changes in blood pressure (BP) throughout pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Longitudinal measurements of systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) BP. METHODS: Two hundred twenty-three healthy pregnant women were recruited in a public health center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil between 2009 and 2011...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the risk of spontaneous abortions and major birth defects in pregnancies of women treated with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) during the first trimester. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort study of prospectively ascertained pregnancies from the German Embryotox pharmacovigilance institute. Pregnancy outcomes after maternal exposure to ACEIs during the first trimester were compared with pregnancies without antihypertensive treatment...

The Millennium Development Goal 5, a project signed in 2000, intended to improve maternal health and reduce maternal mortality by 75% by 2015. Despite all efforts, little progress has been achieved in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) and 99% of all maternal deaths related to pre-eclampsia (PE) still occur in these settings. It is important to determine whether women in LMIC, where PE carries a greater risk than in high-income countries (HIC), have unique risk factors. Some variances may alter the risk, severity and pertinent pathophysiology of PE...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was the analysis of B-Cell Activating Factor (BAFF) levels in pregnancies affected by PE, and in pregnancies affected by fetal growth restriction without Hypertensive disorders and its possible correlation with pulse wave velocity and cardiac output. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective study of 69 women at 24-40 weeks gestation. Haemodynamic function was assessed in those with Pre-eclampsia (PE, n = 19), fetal growth restriction (FGR, n = 10) and healthy pregnancies (n = 40)...

OBJECTIVES: Our first aim was to study the longitudinal changes of serum placental growth factor (PlGF) concentration between 12+0 and 28+0 weeks of gestation in the prospective PREDO cohort. Our second aim was to study the effect of low-dose acetylsalicylic acid (LDA; 100 mg/day), started before the 14th week of gestation, on PlGF concentration. STUDY DESIGN: Blood samples were collected at 12+0 -14+0 , 18+0 -20+0 and 26+0 -28+0 weeks of gestation in 101 women without and 309 with clinical risk factors for pre-eclampsia...

OBJECTIVES: Pregnancy and pregnancy complications have been associated with increased arterial stiffness even at young age. In this study we assessed the impact of parity on CMR-derived aortic characteristics as early markers of atherosclerosis and arterial stiffness in healthy women between 25 and 35 years. STUDY DESIGN: We studied 68 women who participated in the AMBITYON study, a prospective population-based cohort study for assessment of atherosclerotic burden by MRI and traditional CVD risk factors in healthy, young adults...

OBJECTIVES: Normal decidualization is essential for normal pregnancy and abnormal decidualization is thought to cause preeclampsia (PE). Phosphoglycerate kinase 1 (PGK1) is an enzyme involved in the glycolytic pathway which is the main metabolism process decidual cells exhibit. Phosphoglycerate kinase 1, pseudogene 2 (PGK1P2), which is also a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), has a high sequence similarity to PGK1 and therefore acquires an ability for sequence-specific regulation. METHODOLOGY: The expression of PGK1 and PGK1P2 in human decidua, as well as their relationship and functions during decidualization was investigated using in vitro cultured human endometrial stromal cell lines (hESCs) and primary ESCs by real-time PCR, immunohistochemistry, western blotting, siRNA techniques and miRNA inhibitor or mimic transfection...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the economic impact of introducing the soluble FMS-like tyrosine kinase (sFlt-1) to placental growth factor (PlGF) ratio test into clinical practice in two Brazilian hospitals. METHODS: An economic model estimating the incremental value of the information from a Brazilian public and private healthcare payer perspective generated by the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio test, compared with current diagnostic procedures, in guiding the management of women with suspected pre-eclampsia...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the usefulness of a clinical protocol for early detection of preeclampsia and/or fetal growth restriction (PE/FGR) using, in previously selected pregnancies, the measurement of the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio at 24-28 weeks of gestation. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective observational cohort study carried out in a single tertiary hospital in Spain. 5601 consecutive singleton pregnancies with complete follow-up were included. High-risk women for PE/FGR were selected by combining data from maternal history and second trimester uterine artery Doppler...

OBJECTIVE: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) can present during pregnancy and up to months post-delivery. Most large-scale epidemiologic studies have reported on cases occurring during pregnancy or the first few days postpartum (termPPCM). Limited information is available on PPCM in the later postpartum period (latePPCM). We studied the incidence, predictors, and hospital outcome of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) in the prepartum and immediate post delivery period versus up to 3 months post-delivery...

OBJECTIVE: To identify clinical and biomarker risk factors for preeclampsia in women with obesity and to explore interactions with gestational diabetes, a condition associated with preeclampsia. STUDY DESIGN: In women with obesity (body mass index ≥ 30 kg/m2 ) from the UK Pregnancies Better Eating and Activity Trial (UPBEAT), we examined 8 clinical factors (socio-demographic characteristics, BMI, waist circumference and clinical variables) and 7 biomarkers (HDL cholesterol, hemoglobin A1c, adiponectin, interleukin-6, high sensitivity C-reactive protein, and placental growth factor (PlGF)) in the early second trimester for association with later development of preeclampsia using logistic regression...
