Abstract

Serum fibronectin levels were measured in 63 mothers including 16 healthy normotensive pregnant women, 17 eclamptic women, 16 pre-eclamptic women, and 14 chronic hypertensive patients; as well as their term newborns. There was negative correlation between age-corrected birth weight and mothers' fibronectin levels in the eclamptic and preeclamptic groups, but no significant correlation in the chronic hypertensive group and healthy pregnant women.
