Abstract

The placental alkaline phosphatase (PALP) is a specific isoenzyme of the trophoblast, at the fetal-maternal interface. Trophoblast is involved in some pathologies of pregnancy, namely hypertension and preeclampsia. In our study we found a close correlation between arterial hypertension and increased serum levels of PALP (r = 0.7443). Our data on hypertensive pregnant women show an increased level of PALP reaching the 53% of the total ALP in comparison with the 41% of normal ones; in two preeclamptic patients we recorded still more increased PALP values reaching the 73% and 57% of the total ALP.
