Placental growth factor

Papers on PlGF
Elevated concentration of placental growth factor (PlGF) and long term risk in patients with acute coronary syndrome in the PROVE IT-TIMI 22 trial.
Morrow et al., Boston, United States. In J Thromb Thrombolysis, 2012
Higher concentration of PlGF after ACS is associated with long-term risk of recurrent cardiovascular events independent of traditional risk factors.

CD105 and placental growth factor--potent prognostic factors in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Low placental growth factor across pregnancy identifies a subset of women with preterm preeclampsia: type 1 versus type 2 preeclampsia?
Gandley et al., Pittsburgh, United States. In Hypertension, 2012
Data suggest that identifying women with consistently low plasma placental growth factor (PGF) during pregnancy may provide a greater understanding of preeclampsia pathophysiology and may provide more focused research and clinical activities.
Maternal serum placental growth factor in second trimester trisomy 21 pregnancies.
Spencer et al., United Kingdom. In Prenat Diagn, 2012
Although we have found no significant change in the second trimester levels of PlGF in trisomy 21 pregnancies, there remains wide disagreement within the literature on the behaviour of this marker during pregnancies of this syndrome.
The trend of VEGF-A and PlGF in pregnant patients: a perspective case-control study on 214 women.
Nardelli et al., Padova, Italy. In Clin Exp Obstet Gynecol, 2011
statistically significant decrease compared to physiological gestation in spontaneous and threatened abortions (p < 0.0001) and in ectopic pregnancies (p < 0.0001), and threatened premature delivery and uterine hypercontractility (p < 0.01)
