Uric acid and iron in blood serum at abnormal pregnancy with arterial hypertension
Increase of uric acid content, maximum value of which was observed at severe preeclampsia is shown at abnormal pregnancy with arterial hypertension. Increase of uric acid as antioxidant during delivery, considered to be protective mechanism against delivery stress is detected. While comparing uric acid and iron contents in mothers and newborns, approximately identical uric acid contents are observed. Iron content was higher in newborns. In can be caused by active transfer of these blood components through maternal placenta to fetus. The ratio of uric acid/iron can be considered as antioxidant activity index of urate.
