Impaired fetal thymic growth precedes clinical preeclampsia: A case-control study
In preeclampsia the maternal adaptive immune system undergoes specific changes, which are different from the physiological processes associated with healthy pregnancy. Whether preeclampsia also affects the fetal immune system is difficult to investigate, due to limited access to the fetus. We hypothesized that if preeclampsia affects the fetal adaptive immune system this might be associated with early changes in thymic growth. In this case–control study, 53 preeclamptic and 120 healthy control...[Show more]
