Abstract

Background: Activation products from neutrophils and the complement system might cause endothelial dysfunction, which is central to the aetiology of pre-eclampsia. This study aimed to investigate the activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO), and its association with advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), in women with pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.
