Chorioamnionitis Induced Hepatic Inflammation and Disturbed Lipid Metabolism in Fetal Sheep

Abstract

Chorioamnionitis frequently induces a fetal inflammatory response syndrome (FIRS), characterized by an elevation of proinflammatory mediators and systemic inflammation. Although there is increasing evidence that inflammation and lipid metabolism influence each other, the effects of chorioamnionitis-induced FIRS on fetal lipid homeostasis are currently not… (More)
