Placental Function in Healthy and Pathological Pregnancies
“Study of Placental Function in Healthy and Pathological Pregnancies”
The purpose of this study is to establish a tissue and data repository consisting of samples of human placentas, umbilical cord blood, and maternal blood, collected at the time of delivery. Specimens will be used in cellular, molecular, and functional studies to learn more about changes in placental structure and function, which can result in serious pregnancy complications and determine life-long health by programming the fetus for future metabolic and cardiovascular disease.
