OBJECTIVE We examined the relationship between maternal plasma transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) concentrations and risk of preeclampsia among women delivering at Harare Maternity Hospital in Zimbabwe. We evaluated the relationship in the context of maternal systemic inflammation using plasma tumor necrosis factor-a soluble receptor p55 (sTNFp55) as a marker. METHODS 132 women with preeclampsia and 180 controls were included in this case-control study analysis. Maternal post… CONTINUE READING
