Purpose. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association
between maternal infections and preeclampsia. Materials and Methods. Fifty-four pregnant women with preeclampsia
(study group) and 54 healthy pregnant women (control group)
were enrolled in this study. Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP), Mycoplasma
hominis (MH), Helicobacter pylori (HP), Cytomegalovirus (CMV),
Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), and Toxoplasma gondii (TG)
antibodies were analyzed in the maternal plasma of all of the participants. Results. There was no difference in the demographic data between
groups. Maternal plasma seropositivity for CP IgM; MH IgA and IgG;
HP IgM, IgA and IgG; TG, CMV and HSV-2 IgM and IgG were not
significantly different between the preeclampsia and control groups.
The seropositivity for CP IgG was significantly higher in women with
preeclampsia versus the control women. Conclusions. Our results suggested that preeclampsia is associated
with CP IgG seropositivity. Clin Ter 2013; 164(3):e199-202. doi:
