Maternal serum visfatin at 11-13 weeks' gestation in preeclampsia

Journal of Human Hypertension, 05/11/2012

In the PE group, there was no significant association between serum visfatin MoM and uterine artery PI MoM (P=0.589), gestation at delivery (P=0.763) or birth weight percentile (P=0.646). Serum visfatin levels at 11–13 weeks are increased in women who develop PE by a mechanism unrelated to impaired placental perfusion.
