ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia is a disorder of widespread vascular endothelial malfunction and vasospasm, which occurs after gestational age of 20 weeks and can present as late as 4-6 weeks postpartum. OBJECTIVE: Objective is to compare changes in level of S.Hs-CRP levels in patients of preeclampsia & normal pregnant women. METHODOLOGY: There were 50 preeclampsia patients and 50 normal pregnant women in the same age group (20-45 years) included in this study. Serum Hs-CRP(by turbidimetric immunoassay) was measured on fully auto analyzer among the cases and control groups. RESULTS: Serum Hs-CRP levels were significantly higher in preeclampsia patients (3.70 ± 1.58 mg/l) as compared to normal pregnant women (1.35 ± 0.63mg/l) (p value<0.001). CONCLUSION: Hs-CRP is significantly increased in preeclampsia patients and can be used as a predictive factor for preeclampsia

Keywords: Hs-CRP, preeclampsia
