Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Objectives: We aimed to investigate potential association between the exposure of bisphenol A (BPA) and preeclampsia. Methods: Concentrations of BPA were assessed in 58 pregnancies including 35 normotensive and 23 preeclamptic women, using a highly sensitive gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method. Results: BPA was detected in maternal blood, fetal blood and placental tissue; and actual concentrations of BPA were determined. Interestingly, significant accumulation of BPA in the placentas of women with preeclampsia compared to normotensive women has been shown. Conclusions: This is the first study to highlight a significant correlation between preeclampsia and a high accumulation of BPA in the placenta.
