OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that umbilical vein serum soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt1) concentration was augmented in pre-eclampsia. We also explored a possible association between fetal and maternal concentrations of sFlt1. STUDY DESIGN At cesarean delivery, maternal serum samples from pre-eclamptic (n=38) and uncomplicated (n=32) pregnancies… CONTINUE READING
