Abstract

Neurokinin B levels were measured between the 10th-20th weeks of pregnancy, i.e., prior to the development of clinical symptoms, in women who developed preeclampsia or delivered a growth-restricted baby. No difference was found in plasma neurokinin B levels, although neurokinin B levels increased slightly towards term.
