Role of adiponectin on antioxidant profile: evaluation during healthy and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
The study of adipokines and oxidative stress has aided in understanding pre-eclampsia physiopathology. Therefore, our group aimed to evaluate the correlation between the adipokines (adiponectin and leptin) and the oxidative ...
Comparative assessment of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9, and their inhibitors, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 and TIMP-2 in preeclampsia and gestational hypertension
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
Objectives: To compare the circulating levels of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, MMP-9, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1, TIMP-2, and the MMP-9/TIMP-1 and MMP-2/TIMP-2 ratios in preeclampsia and gestational ...
Maternal iNOS genetic polymorphisms and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
(Nature Publishing GroupLondon, 2012)
Vitamin D receptor polymorphisms in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
eNOS haplotypes associated with gestational hypertension or preeclampsia
(FUTURE MEDICINE LTD, 2008)
Aims: Polymorphisms in the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene have been inconsistently associated with preeclampsia. We compared genotype and haplotype frequencies of three eNOS gene polymorphisms in normotensive ...
Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 genotypes and haplotypes in preeclampsia and gestational hypertension
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
Background: Abnormal production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), especially MMP-9, may play a role in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. These alterations may result from functional genetic polymorphisms in the ...
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha in gestation and puerperium of women with gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia
(Blackwell Publishing, 2007-03-01)
Problem High plasma levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in pregnant women have been associated with the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia (PE). This study evaluated TNF-alpha plasma levels and monocyte production ...
