Maternal neutrophil toll-like receptor mRNA expression is down-regulated in preeclampsia.

PROBLEM There are many immunological changes in preeclampsia. For example, TLR-4 expression is increased in the placenta during preeclampsia. However, data on TLR expression in other tissues during preeclampsia are lacking. This study aimed to determine whether TLR mRNA expression in maternal neutrophils is altered in preeclampsia. METHOD OF STUDY A case… (More)
