Abstract: Prenatal growth restraint is associated with increased oxidative stress--as judged by mitochondrial dysfunction--in pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia or diabetes, but it is uncertain whether this is also the case in uncomplicated pregnancies. We assessed the link between fetal growth restraint and placental mitochondrial dysfunction, as reflected by changes in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity.
