Table 1 Characteristics of nonpregnant, normotensive pregnant, and preeclamptic women

From: Downregulation of α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in peripheral blood monocytes is associated with enhanced inflammation in preeclampsia

Variable Nonpregnant (n = 30) Normotensive (n = 32) Preeclamptic (n = 35)
Age, years 27.3 ± 4.3 26.3 ± 2.8 26.7 ± 5.1

Systolic BP (mmHg) 107.6 ± 5.3 108.8 ± 7.1 157.1 ± 7.6**
Diastolic BP (mmHg) 67.5 ± 4.5 68.2 ± 5.5 107.6 ± 7.1**

  1. Data are mean ± standard deviation. BP blood pressure. Data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post-test. **p < 0.01 vs. nonpregnant and normotensive pregnant groups. Proteinuria of all patients from the nonpregnant and normotensive groups was below the detection limit of the measurement
