Women with epilepsy had more pregnancy(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the maternal and umbilical cord serum levels of interleukin-8 (IL-8) in pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia with intrauterine normal growth and intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), and in normotensive pregnancies. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study was carried out on 15 patients with singleton(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to carry out a comparative analysis of the maternal and umbilical cord TNFalpha serum levels in pregnancies complicated by severe preeclampsia with normal intrauterine fetal growth, in preeclamptic pregnancies with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), and in normotensive pregnant patients.

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the maternal serum concentrations of eNOS, ADMA, and homocysteine in preeclamptic pregnancies. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was carried out on 62 patients with pregnancy complicated by early onset and 53 patients with late onset preeclampsia. The control group consisted of 65 healthy normotensive(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to investigate the association between homocysteine and asymmetric dimethylarginine in preeclamptic women with and without intrauterine growth restriction compared with normal healthy uncomplicated pregnancies and normotensive pregnancies complicated by idiopathic isolated intrauterine fetal growth restriction. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of present study was to assess the maternal serum endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), NOSTRIN (eNOS-trafficking inducer) and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) levels in pregnancies with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) in the presence or absence of preeclampsia and to compare the results with preeclamptic pregnant women with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the maternal and umbilical cord sTNF R1 serum levels in pregnancies complicated by severe preeclampsia with normal intrauterine fetal growth and in preeclamptic pregnancies with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR).
