The effects of acute maternal hyperglycaemia and hyperosmolality on maternofetal placental transfer of Ca, Mg and 51Cr-EDTA were investigated in the rat. On day 21 of gestation (term = 23 d) the fetal circulation of the in situ placenta of anaesthetised rats was perfused with a Mg-free Krebs Ringer solution and the unidirectional maternofetal fluxes of Ca (CaJmf) and Mg (MgJmf), and the unidirectional maternofetal clearance of 51Cr-EDTA ((EDTA)Kmf) were determined before and during maternal… CONTINUE READING
