The Correlation between Markers of Systemic Inflammation and Angiogenic Markers in Pre-eclampsia.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Pre-eclampsia is a severe multisystemic syndrome that represents a major cause of maternal, foetal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. In the study we conducted it stood out the. significant modifications of angiogenic markers in pregnant women suffering from pre-eclampsia and the existence of a correlation between C-reactive protein (CRP) and SBP, DBP and average BP. MATERIAL AND METHOD The group included in the study consisted of 138 pregnant women hospitalized at the "Cuza-Voda" Clinical Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of Iasi, between 2012-2014, with over 20 weeks gestational age and which gave their free consent to take part in the study. RESULTS It is confirmed the importance of determining the markers for diagnosing and monitoring hypertensive pregnant women and at the same time it was pointed out that the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio represents a good pre-eclampsia predictor. CONCLUSIONS The results of our study confirm the importance of determining sFlt-l and PlGF as markers for diagnosing and monitoring pregnant women with HBP as well as the sFlt-l/ PlGF ratio which represents a good pre-eclampsia predictor.
