Analysis of content of endogenous pro- and antioxidants of iron and uric acid in blood serum at preeclampsia

Author Affiliations


The complex biochemical analysis of content of uric acid, serum iron, ratio uric/ iron and other markers at preeclampsia of different severity has been conducted. The level of proteinuria, systolic arterial pressure, content of creatinin and calcium, transaminase activity in blood serum are the main markers to detect the severity of preeclampsia. The level of uric acid and serum iron depends on severity of preeclampsia. Severe hyperuricemia, when crystallization of uric acid is possible, has been observed only at severe preeclampsia. This factor can yet more complicate the work of kidney, broken at such pathology. The data obtained show that the simultaneous detection of uric acid and iron levels is more informative for definition of preeclampsia severity extent than separate research of these factors.
