Intrauterine growth retardation: study of placental apoptosis.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  15134306     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We studied the rate of apoptosis in the placental tissue of pregnancies complicated with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and compared it with the results obtained in normal placentas. Our results clearly demonstrate a strongly increased rate of apoptosis in placentas of children born with IUGR, suggesting severe placental dysfunction. The significance of these findings needs further study.
