OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to compare the expression of leukocyte adhesion molecules, intracellular reactive oxygen species, and vasoactive substances in preeclampsia and matched normotensive pregnancies and to explore differences between pregnancy and the nonpregnant state regarding these parameters. METHODS Flow cytometry was used to analyze the monocyte and granulocyte expression of adhesion molecules from 20 matched pairs of preeclampsia/normotensive pregnancies and 12 nonpregnant… CONTINUE READING
