Changes in microparticle numbers and cellular origin during pregnancy and preeclampsia.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Microparticles (MP) are pro-coagulant vesicles derived from various cells. Evidence is accumulating that MP are of pathophysiological relevance in autoimmune, cardiovascular, and thromboembolic diseases and inflammatory disorders. Therefore, their role in the development of preeclampsia was investigated and MP from preeclamptic patients influenced endothelial-dependent vasodilatation. Knowledge about changes in circulating MP numbers during pregnancy and preeclampsia is lacking. W...
