Abstract

Purpose: Preeclampsia, specific to human pregnancies, is a serious disorder, which occurs approximately in 6-10% of all pregnancies. It is a complex disorder, in which immune and genetic factors also take part. The aim of the current study was toinvestigate whether there is an association between AGTR2 A1675G and IL4 -590 (C>T) polymorphisms and preeclampsia.
