The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between plasma adenosine and serum uric acid levels in women with preeclampsia. Maternal arterial blood sampling was performed to measure serum uric acid and plasma adenosine levels in 20 pregnant women complicated by preeclampsia and 22 normal pregnant women at 33-38 weeks of gestation. The average plasma adenosine levels were 0.31 +/- 0.12 micromol/l in the normal pregnant group and 0.45 +/- 0.11 micromol/l in the preeclampsia group. The… CONTINUE READING
