2008) our findings showed that IUGR pigs had a lower tenderness of the LM than that of NBW pigs reflected by an increased shear force.
With regard to higher sensitivity and accuracy of placental height than Doppler sonography for predicting IUGR, more precise sonographic measurement of placental height at 18-24 gestational weeks is recommended.
Other IUGR case and preeclampsia cases were in the abnormal placental histology group.
One normal (average body weight 133 [+ or -] 9 g, 792 [+ or -] 75 g, 1,453 [+ or -] 89 g, respectively) and one IUGR fetus (average body weight 87 [+ or -] 4 g, 480 [+ or -] 24 g, 712 [+ or -] 52 g, respectively) (body weight less than 3% average litter weight) were selected from each litter to collect the thymus (Rosenberg, 2008).
We performed the hypothesis testing approach to determine whether there is association between the levels of total RNA and mRNA of hPL in plasma of normal controls and patients with IUGR using the Mann-Whitney test with Stata 9.
The incidence of low birthweight (<2,500 g), admission to the SCBU, and non-exclusive breastfeeding significantly declined while IUGR increased with higher gestational age.
Mean weight of the preterms was lower than that of IUGR infants at birth, first, second and third months of age, thereafter from fourth month onwards, the preterms had higher mean weight than the IUGR infants.
Placental histology was also pivotal in identifying uteroplacental insufficiency, which helped to confirm the diagnosis of IUGR (Table IV).
Compared with controls, IUGR infants had significantly higher urinary microalbumin (4.
LBW is a strong predictor for size in later life because IUGR infants seldom catch-up to normal size during childhood (4).
Some of these processes are compromised in pregnancy complications, notably PE and IUGR (Mayhew et al.
