Agouti-related Peptide (AgRP) in Healthy Mothers and Mothers With Preeclampsia and Their Offspring

2014-08-27 03:16:54 | BioPortfolio


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.


The study is focused on investigation of possible genotype-phenotype interactions of agouti-related peptide (AgRP) in postpartum non-preeclamptic women and preeclamptic women and in their offspring.
