A revision about the role of hyperhomocysteinemia in the development of preeclampsia is presented, which summarises our experience in different biochemical and genetic points in relation to this possible association. Plasma total homocysteine concentrations (tHcy) during pregnancy were significantly lower than those of non-pregnant women: 2nd trimester (median, 5.3 micromol/l; range, 3.1-10.0 micromol/l); 3rd trimester (median, 6.3 micromol/l; range, 3.2-13.0 micromol/l). Hyperhomocysteinemia… CONTINUE READING
