BACKGROUND Fetal growth restriction is related to a high rate of prematurity and mortality. In cases of unknown origin utero-placental circulation changes are the main factor which is due to the changes in blood vessels. The understanding of the mechanism may help in further prevention of FGR. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expression of bcl-2 and bax in normal pregnancies and complicated by FGR were compared. The study was conducted in 2005-2006 at The Medical University of Lodz--HRP Unit and The… CONTINUE READING
