Abstract: Contrasting with increased nitric oxide (NO) formation during healthy pregnancy, reduced NO bioavailability plays a role in preeclampsia. However, no study has examined whether increased NO consumption by enhanced circulating levels of cell-free hemoglobin plays a role in preeclampsia. We studied 82 pregnant women (38 healthy pregnant and 44 with preeclampsia). To assess NO bioavailability, we measured plasma and whole blood nitrite concentrations using an ozone-based chemiluminescence assay. Plasma ceruloplasmin concentrations and plasma NO consumption (pNOc) were assessed and plasma hemoglobin (pHb) concentrations were measured with a commercial immunoassay. We found lower whole blood and plasma nitrite concentrations in preeclamptic patients (-48 and -39%, respectively; both P<0.05) compared with healthy pregnant women. Plasma samples from preeclamptic women consumed 63% more NO (P=0.003) and had 53% higher pHb and 10% higher ceruloplasmin levels than those found in healthy pregnant women (P<0.01). We found significant positive correlations between pHb and pNOc (r=0.61; P<0.0001), negative correlations between pNOc and whole blood or plasma nitrite concentrations (P=0.02; r=-0.32 and P=0.01: r=-0.34, respectively), and negative correlations between pHb and whole blood or plasma nitrite concentrations (P=0.03; r=-0.36 and P=0.01: r=-0.38, respectively). These findings suggest that increased pHb levels lead to increased NO consumption and lower NO bioavailability in preeclamptic compared with healthy pregnant women. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc.
