To evaluate whether urinary levels of placental growth factor (PlGF) during pregnancy are associated with the subsequent development of composite adverse outcomes (preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, placental abruption, perinatal death, maternal death) occurring at less than 34 weeks of gestation.

To investigate the additive value of serum placental growth factor (PLGF) and soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFLT-1), measured within 24 hours of induction of labor, on the performance of screeni...
Placental growth factor (PLGF) is a biomarker of placental function. The aim of this study was to define reference ranges for maternal PLGF levels in a normotensive cohort ≥36 + 0 weeks.
The pathophysiology of preeclampsia is largely unknown. Serum placental induced growth factor (PlGF) levels are decreased during second trimester pregnancy. Aberrant DNA methylation is suggested to be...
Placental morphology influences the intrauterine environment and fetal growth, which help set life-course health trajectories across generations. Little is known about placental characteristics in pop...
Placental growth factor (PlGF), total soluble fms-like tyrosine-kinase 1 (sFlt-1) and its placental-specific variant, sFlt-1 e15a, show promise as biomarkers for the prediction and diagnosis of preecl...
In patients with suspected placental vascular disease who do not require hospitalization, the use of the sFlt-1 (Soluble FMS like tyrosin-kinase-1)/PlGF (Placental Growth Factor)/ assay ca...
This will be a prospective study conducted on women with a suspected/confirmed diagnosis of placental abruption. Maternal blood samples will be taken at various points during the peripartu...
To identify fetuses small for their gestational-age who have reached their appropriate growth potential from growth-restricted fetuses due to placental insufficiency is uneasy. Intra Uteri...
The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was to investigate the relationship between placental thickness during the second and third trimesters and placental and birth weights.
The objective of this study is to evaluate functional MRI as a tool to study placental transfer of oxygen and nutrients during the third trimester of pregnancy in obese women, women with p...
A polypeptide hormone of approximately 25 kDa that is produced by the SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS of the PLACENTA, also known as chorionic somatomammotropin. It has both GROWTH HORMONE and PROLACTIN activities on growth, lactation, and luteal steroid production. In women, placental lactogen secretion begins soon after implantation and increases to 1 g or more a day in late pregnancy. Placental lactogen is also an insulin antagonist.
An angiogenic protein belonging to the Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor family of growth factors originally isolated and cloned from human placental cDNA library. There are four isoforms of PLGF 1-4 which result from alternative splicing. Placenta Growth Factor is secreted as a glycosylated homodimer which acts as a mitogen for endothelial cells, and its expression is markedly upregulated during hypoxia and in tissue inflammation and cancer.
Methods used for the assessment of placental function.
Extracts prepared from placental tissue; they may contain specific but uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities.
Hormones produced by the placenta include CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, and PLACENTAL LACTOGEN as well as steroids (ESTROGENS; PROGESTERONE), and neuropeptide hormones similar to those found in the hypothalamus (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES).
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
