Summary

The study is focused on the investigation of possible associations between plasma/serum levels of agouti related peptide (AgRP) and its genetic background in healthy women with physiological pregnancy (non-preeclamptic) and women with preeclampsia, in the postpartum period, and in their offspring.

Description
