It has been reported that impaired oxidant/antioxidant status is involved in a variety of pregnancy complications. To elucidate the possible free radical mediated mechanism of preterm delivery due to lead exposure by determining the placental lead level and oxidant/antioxidant status in women with the preterm and full-term deliveries. Twenty-nine women with preterm deliveries (gestational age 28-37 weeks) and 31 women with full-term deliveries (gestational age >37 weeks) attending a local… CONTINUE READING
