Abstract

Background. The HELLP syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelets) is a complication of severe pre-eclampsia, a condition characterized by oxidative stress elevation caused by disequilibrium between lipid peroxidation and antioxidant defense mechanisms, which, in turn, results in endothelial compromise and free radical-mediated cell damage. While several studies have examined the relationship between pre-eclampsia and oxidative stress, research investigating oxidative and hypoxic status in HELLP syndrome is limited.
