Analyses of Interleukin-6, Presepsin and Pentraxin-3 in the Diagnosis and Severity of Late-onset Preeclampsia

2019-10-21 12:45:38 | BioPortfolio


Introduction: The etiology/pathophysiology of preeclampsia remains an enigma. Cellular immunity is a key factor in the etiology of late-onset preeclampsia (L-PrE). Presepsin is split out from the phagocytes membranes after phagocytosis. To investigators knowledge, this is the first study in literature to investigate maternal blood concentrations of presepsin in preeclampsia and healthy pregnant women.

Methods: The investigators examined maternal plasma interleukin-6, presepsin and pentraxin-3 concentrations in pregnant women with (n=44) and without L-PrE (n=44). These three inflammatory markers concentrations measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were compared.


This observational case-control study was designed at Cengiz Gokcek Women's and Children's Hospital, Gaziantep, Turkey, in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology between June 2018 and January 2019. The protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee for Clinical Research of Gaziantep University (Reference number: 2018/393). The study strictly adhered to the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki. All subjects included in the study gave oral and written informed consent. Eighty-eight women were enrolled in the study in two groups. All participants will gave their oral and written informed consent before their inclusion in the study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An interleukin receptor subunit that was originally discovered as a component of the INTERLEUKIN 2 RECEPTOR. It was subsequently found to be a component of several other receptors including the INTERLEUKIN 4 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN 7 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN-9 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN-15 RECEPTOR, and the INTERLEUKIN-21 RECEPTOR. Mutations in the gene for the interleukin common gamma chain have been associated with X-LINKED COMBINED IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISEASES.

Cell surface receptors for INTERLEUKIN-13. Included under this heading are the INTERLEUKIN-13 RECEPTOR ALPHA2 which is a monomeric receptor and the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR TYPE II which has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13.

A cytokine subunit that is a component of both interleukin-12 and interleukin-23. It binds to the INTERLEUKIN-12 SUBUNIT P35 via a disulfide bond to form interleukin-12 and to INTERLEUKIN-23 SUBUNIT P19 to form interleukin-23.

An interleukin receptor subunit with specificity for INTERLEUKIN-13. It dimerizes with the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR ALPHA SUBUNIT to form the TYPE II INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR which has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13. Signaling of this receptor subunit occurs through the interaction of its cytoplasmic domain with JANUS KINASES such as the TYK2 KINASE.

An interleukin receptor subtype found on both hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. It is a membrane-bound heterodimer that contains the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR ALPHA SUBUNIT and the INTERLEUKIN-13 RECEPTOR ALPHA1 SUBUNIT. Although commonly referred to as the interleukin-4 type-II receptor this receptor has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13
