To study biochemical and hematological parameters in pre-eclampsia. Methods: study was performed on two hundred pregnant (primigravida) women of age ranging between 20 to 25 years and having gestational age between 20 to 34 weeks. Hundred obstetric women were identified as having pre-eclampsia and hundred healthy pregnant subjects were taken as controls, having uncomplicated pregnancies and were normotensive throughout gestation and without proteinuria. 

Usefulness of serum gamma glutamyl transferase in assessing severity of preeclampsia

Serum LDH and uric acid are the better indicators of severity in preeclampsia when compared to serum GGT, according to ROC curve.

Hematological and Biochemical Abnormalities in Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension

The mean levels of hemoglobin, platelet, and lymphocytes are lower in cases with PIH, while the mean prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time are higher in these patients.



Evaluation of the changes in serum iron levels in pre-eclampsia

It is suggested that haemolysis may be a major contributory factor for the increased levels of serum iron in pre-eclampsia.

Alteration in iron status in pre eclampsia.

Routine investigation of serum iron status of pregnant women as part of antenatal checkup may help in the establishment of diagnosis of pre eclampsia before appearance of its clinical manifestation.

Plasma level of vitamin C in women with pre-eclampsia in Ardabil, Iran

Vitamin C levels in the pre-eclampsia group were found to be influenced by their maternal age, and was positively related to the gestational age (p<0.01), which may contribute to the development and evaluation of behavioral and medical interventions aimed at reducing the occurrence of pre- eClampsia.

Pre-eclampsia--still a disease of theories.

The search for the underlying cause of this disorder and for a clinical marker to predict which women will develop pre-eclampsia is ongoing, with its prevention being the ultimate goal.

The origin of increased serum iron in pregnancy‐induced hypertension

Altered ferrokinetics in toxemia of pregnancy: a possible indicator of decreased red cell survival.

The magnitude of iron increase is greater than could be derived from intravascular hemolysis and suggests an extravascular locus and it is hypothesized that serum iron and ferritin increase in response to catabolism of released hemoglobin.

Pregnancy‐Related Mortality From Preeclampsia and Eclampsia

The diagnosis of glomerular diseases: acute glomerulonephritis and the nephrotic syndrome.

This analysis serves as an initial framework to proceed with serologic testing and/ or pathologic confirmation en route to final diagnosis of diseases presenting as acute glomerulonephritis and/or nephrotic syndrome.

Guidelines suggest prescribing angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or ang Elliotensin 1 receptor blocker therapy to all patients with decreased renal function and hypertension with or without diabetes, as well as the theory of prenatal imprinting.
