Abstract:

Aim: The aim of this study is to identify correlations between total antioxidant status values of mothers and their infants and compare these values in accordance to the presence or absence of intrauterine growth restriction. Material and methods: This is a prospective, comparative study performed over a period of 3 years on a number of 52 infants and their mothers. Thirty-six of them had intrauterine growth restriction and 16 were appropriate for their gestational age and were used for comparative purposes. General information regarding the mother, infant and pregnancy were recorded. In addition, total antioxidant status was assessed from blood samples, taken right before delivery from mothers and from the cord blood in infants. Results: We found significant differences between total antioxidant status both between mothers and neonates with IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction) versus without IUGR (p=0.018, and p<0.001, respectively). In addition, in both groups, there was a significant direct correlation between maternal and neonatal values of serum total antioxidant status (TAS) (p<0.001). In conclusion, we can say that TAS values, as an important marker of the oxidative status of patients, are correlated with the presence of IUGR and values recorded from blood samples of the mother may be predictive for the oxidative status of the infant, thus of IUGR.
