Abstract: Objectives: We compared nitrite, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), and cGMP levels in preeclamptic with those found in healthy pregnant. Methods: We studied 21 healthy pregnant and 27 preeclamptic. Plasma cGMP and BNP levels were determined by ELISA. Nitrite levels were determined by chemiluminescence. Results: Higher cGMP and BNP, and lower nitrite levels were found in preeclamptic versus healthy pregnant Conclusions: Altered cGMP levels reflect increased BNP levels and not impaired nitric oxide activity in preeclampsia.
