Abstract

: The precise causation of pre-eclampsia is still unknown, but oxidative stress in pre-eclampsia is well documented. In pre-eclampsia, antioxidant capacity has been shown to be decreased in the placenta and serum. However, some workers have questioned the role of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation in pre-eclampsia. Furthermore, two randomised controlled trials of antioxidant supplementation during pregnancy with vitamin C and E showed no prophylactic or protective effect on the incidence of pre-eclampsia.
