Abstract

Background: We determined serum endogenous secretory receptor of advanced glycation end products (esRAGE) and soluble RAGE (sRAGE) concentrations and the esRAGE/sRAGE ratio in normal pregnancy and preeclampsia because esRAGE and sRAGE have been negatively linked to components of metabolic syndromes and pathologic pregnancy including preeclampsia.

Method: Eighty-seven normal pregnant women and 28 with preeclampsia were recruited. Serum sRAGE and esRAGE levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

Results: There were significant differences in esRAGE concentration and esRAGE/sRAGE ratio between 1st and 3rd trimester in normal pregnancy (P=0.007 and P=0.003). Serum esRAGE concentrations and esRAGE/sRAGE ratio in patients with preeclampsia significantly increased compared to controls (P=0.005 and P<0.001).

Conclusions: Maternal serum esRAGE concentration and esRAGE/sRAGE ratio (1) gradually decrease with gestational age in normal pregnancy; and (2) are higher in patients with preeclampsia than healthy pregnant controls, significantly. Serum esRAGE and esRAGE/sRAGE ratio might be associated with preeclampsia.

Keywords: esRAGE; preeclampsia; sRAGE
