BACKGROUND It is not known whether fasting affects levels of circulating placenta-specific transcripts. OBJECTIVE To assess whether a glucose load affects circulating placenta-specific transcripts. METHOD RNA was extracted from paired blood samples (fasting and 1-h post 75 g oral glucose) from 22 women. Placenta-specific genes were measured by RT-qPCR… CONTINUE READING
