Increased Reactive Oxygen Species and Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha Production by Monocytes are Associated with Elevated Levels of Uric Acid in Pre-Eclamptic Women
Reactive Oxygen Species
Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha
Elevated serum uric acid levels are correlated with higher O(2)(-) and TNF-α production by monocytes in women with PE. This may contribute to the enhanced oxidative and inflammatory state characteristic of this disorder.
