Abstract

The purpose of this prospective study was to investigate the levels of Lp(a), Apo(a), VLDL, LDL and HDL in 23 patients with pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) and in 20 control. The Mann-Whitney U tests was used for comparisons between the two groups. Serum Lp(a) and Apo(a) levels were significantly raise in the PIH group (p<0.05 and p<0.05 respectively) and no significant correlations could be demonstrated for other lipoproteins.
