Preeclampsia is a serious and life-threatening pregnancy complication. Reduced uteroplacental perfusion and oxygen tension, impaired trophoblast differentiation and invasion, and altered placental production of immunomodulators and growth factors are all considered to be important aspects in the aetiology of the condition. The placenta expresses a variety of pro and anti-inflammatory cytokines, adipokines and cytokine-like angiogenic growth factors, production of which is altered in… CONTINUE READING
