Our study showed that there were statistically significant correlations between the systolic and diastolic ratio (S/D) of maternal uterine or umbilical artery and the levels of maternal serum aminopeptidase activities in pre-eclampsia. Kininase I was positively correlated with the S/D ratios, whereas placental leucine aminopeptidase (P-LAP) and… CONTINUE READING
