The reactivity of the platelet thromboxane pathway was investigated by means of measurement of thrombin-induced formation of malondialdehyde in platelets obtained from 26 women in the third trimester of uncomplicated pregnancies, 27 patients with normotensive pregnancies who were delivered of small--for--gestational age infants, 27 patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension and infants with normal birth weights, and 20 patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension and small--for--gestational… CONTINUE READING
