Systemic inflammatory indices in pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.


The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that TNF-alpha, TNFp55 receptor and sICAM-1 are markers of immune activation, protective response to concentrations of TNF-alpha and endothelial cell activation, respectively, in pre-eclampsia.
