PMID:  2866125     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The circulating levels of pregnancy-specific beta 1-glycoproteins (SP1) were measured in 71 normal pregnant women in Northern Nigeria by immunoelectrophoresis. The levels showed a steady rise up to 34 weeks as in Caucasians and then plateaued with a slight fall just before term. The mean individual values were lower than those found in Caucasians at comparable gestation periods. This was thought to be related to the lower mean fetal weight in the Nigerian women.
