An antiangiogenic protein found in the serum of women who subsequently develop preeclampsia. It may contribute to the development of this syndrome.

Certain substances, such as sFlt-1, are elevated in preeclampsia and are believed to contribute to disease progression and severity.
Diagnostic solutions include the Roche cobas cTnT-hs test, which offers a high diagnostic accuracy for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), a major cause of death and disability worldwide; Elecsys sFlt-1 and PIGF for pre-eclampsia diagnosis and other types of hypertensive disorders; and the cobas EGFR test, help determine whether patients with non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSMLC) carry epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations.
Presented at the 18th World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI) held in Vienna in October, the study is investigating the correlation between the ratio of two proteins sFlt-1 (soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1) and PlGF (placental growth factor) in maternal blood and the risk of developing preeclampsia over the subsequent four weeks.
Previous studies have demonstrated elevated blood sFlt-1 levels or reduced blood PlGF levels in women whose pregnancies were complicated by intrauterine growth restriction, preeclampsia, and gestational hypertension (Asvold et al.
The sFlt-1 protein is a truncated form of the VEGF receptor Flt-1, lacking the transmembrane and the intracytoplasmic domains and therefore secreted extracellularly (18).
Circulating levels of sFlt-1 are increased in pre-eclampsia and particularly the early onset form of the disease, resulting in reduced levels of free VEGF-A and P1GF in the maternal circulation.
But both the level of vitamin D and the ratio of sFlt-1 to PlGF predicted the development of severe preeclampsia after other risk factors were taken into account.
Ucuncu arastirmada ise, preeklamptik anne bebeklerinin kordon kaninda, sFlt-1 duzeyinin yuksek, PIGF ve VEGF duzeylerinin dusuk oldugu gosterilmistir (25).
About the role of PIGF, sFlt-1, sCD40L and PAPP-A in cardiovascular disease
His prior work with sFlt-1 and his expertise in translational research make him exceptionally valuable as an advisor and research collaborator," explains Dr.
sFlt-1 is thought to be able to capture PlGF and thereby reduce the amount available to bind to the receptor located on macrophages and endothelial cells (11).
The combination of sFlt-1 and PlGF is particularly important for the prognosis of patients with angina pectoris and after myocardial infarction.
