Endothelial NO, which is synthesized by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), has been reported to be related with the occurrence of pre-eclampsia (PE). However, the polymorphisms of eNOS (-786T>C, 4b/a and G894T), the level of nitric oxide and the risk of PE remain unclear. Thus we performed this meta-analysis to determine the associations between them in order to predict the risk for PE and interfere with PE development in early period of antenatal care. All studies investigating the associations between PE risk and polymorphisms of eNOS, or PE risk and serum concentration of NO were reviewed. Finally, 29 studies were included, involving 11 for -786T>C, 11for 4b/a, and 22 for G894T polymorphisms and PE risk. In the overall analysis, -786T>C polymorphism was found to be related with increased PE risk in dominant model (OR=1.17, 95% CI=1.02-1.35). a allele for 4b/a suffer the high risk of PE (OR=1.46, 95% CI=1.01-2.10). In the subgroup analysis, significantly increased risk was detected among Europeans for -786T>C polymorphism (OR=1.40, 95%CI=1.14-1.73).However, no significant association was detected for G894T polymorphism in the overall and subgroup analysis. The comprehensive evaluation of 9 available studies indicated that serum NO level was significantly decreased in case group (SMD=-0.96 umol/mL, 95%CI=-1.80,-0.12 umol/mL).Hence, we concluded that eNOS gene -786T>C and 4b/a except for G894T polymorphisms were contributed significantly to PE risk, especially for Europeans, and a low NO concentration in serum increased the risk for PE.
