  1. Increased platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity in the umbilical venous plasma of growth-restricted fetuses.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To determine whether platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity in fetal plasma obtained at birth from umbilical vessels is different from that in maternal plasma, and (2) to compare platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity in cord plasma from fetuses with fetal growth restriction (FGR) and those with appropriate growth for gestational age (AGA).

    Methods 

    Platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity was measured in the plasma of 22 nonpregnant healthy women, 16 pregnant women at term during labor, 28 fetuses exhibiting AGA, and seven fetuses with FGR.

    Results 

    Plasma platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity in normotensive pregnant women at 37-41 weeks'gestation was 28.1 ± 16.6 nmol/mL per minute, which was not statistically different from the activity in nonpregnant women (30.8 ± 11.1 nmol/mL per minute).

    Platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity in venous cord plasma from AGA fetuses was significantly (P<. 01) lower than that in maternal plasma (6.3 ± 2.6 nmol/mL per minute), and there was no difference between the activities found in arterial and venous cord samples.

    In FGR fetuses, venous cord platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase activity was significantly (P<. 01) higher (12.1 ± 1. (...)
