abstract

  • Lymphocyte intracellular free calcium concentration is increased in preeclampsia and not in chronic hypertensive pregnancy and is greater during the third trimester than during the first trimester. Extracellular calcium depletion increases lymphocyte intracellular free calcium concentration. These data support the idea that a calcium deficit leading to an increased intracellular free calcium concentration during late pregnancy contributes to the pathogenesis of preeclampsia.
