To clarify the immune responses mediated by ficolins in the placenta during preeclamptic pregnancy, we found that chemokines/cytokines involved in innate immunity, including monocyte chemoattractant proteins 1/2/3 (MCP1/2/3), monokine induced by gamma-interferon (MIG), macrophage inflammatory proteins 1[delta]/3[alpha] (MIP1[delta]/3[alpha]), tumor necrosis factor [alpha] (TNF[alpha]) and thymus expressed chemokine (TECK) were activated, whereas interferon/cytokines involved in adaptive immunity, including interferon [gamma] (IFN[gamma]), interleukin 13/4/5 (IL13/4/5), transforming growth factor [beta]1/[beta]3 (TGF[beta]1/[beta]3) and TNF[beta], were suppressed in preeclamptic placenta (n = 10 vs 10; Fig.
