Abstract

We investigated whether monocyte CD14 receptor gene promoter polymorphisms were associated with the development and severity of pre-eclampsia. We genotyped the CD14-260 C/T polymorphism in 36 pre-eclamptic patients and 52 healthy pregnant controls. A total of 30.6% and 69.4% of pre-eclamptic patients had the C and T alleles, respectively, and 48.0% and 52.0% of the controls, respectively. More pre-eclamptic patients were TT homozygotes compared with controls (50.0% versus 13.5%). In pre-eclamptic patients, the TT homozygotes exhibited a significantly higher mean systolic blood pressure compared with the non-TT homozygotes (173 ± 28 mmHg versus 153 ± 22 mmHg). We also noted a tendency towards increased proteinuria and placental abruption in the TT homozygotes compared with the non-TT homozygotes. We conclude that CD14 gene promoter polymorphisms appear to be a risk factor for pre-eclampsia. With further research, these findings might form the basis of a prognostic tool for pre-eclampsia.
