Oxidative stress has been postulated as major contributor to endothelial dysfunction and pregnancy-induced hypertension. We have examined the association of exposure to cadmium through cigarette smoke with hypertension disorders during pregnancy in the selenium deficient population. Markers of lipid peroxidation and antioxidative defense were measured and correlated with cadmium blood concentration in normotensive and hypertensive pregnant smokers and nonsmokers. We have observed significantly… CONTINUE READING
