This case-control study was conducted in Lima, Peru, from June 1997 through January 1998 to assess whether plasma concentrations of carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-cryptoxanthin), retinol, and tocopherols (alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol) are decreased in women with preeclampsia. A total of 125 pregnant(More)
We conducted a large case-control study to assess the risk of preeclampsia with elevated sTNFp55 concentrations (markers of excessive TNF-alpha release) in Peruvian women. A total of 125 women with preeclampsia and 179 normotensive women were included in a study conducted during the period, June 1997 through January 1998. Antepartum (third-trimester) plasma(More)
The authors measured maternal third trimester plasma folate, vitamin B(12), and homocyst(e)ine concentrations among 125 women with preeclampsia and 179 normotensive women in Lima, Peru (1997-1998), to determine whether these analytes were associated with the occurrence of preeclampsia. Logistic regression procedures were used to calculate maximum likelihood(More)
Objective: This case–control study was conducted in Lima, Peru, from June 1997 through January 1998 to assess whether alteration in maternal erythrocyte omega-3 (n-3) and omega-6 (n-6) fatty acids was associated with increased risk of preeclampsia. Methods: A total of 99 preeclampsia and 100 normotensive pregnant women were included. Maternal erythrocyte(More)
