Modification of angiogenic factors by exercise

Post by caryn » Sat May 08, 2010 04:49 pm

Acute exercise in pregnancy was not associated with antiangiogenic changes that might contribute to preeclampsia; rather, there was a small, but statistically significant, increase in PlGF following acute exercise in active pregnant women [278 (221, 647) vs. 335 (245, 628) pg/ml, P=0.014].

Good news for all of us exercisers -- it doesn't seem to make things worse on a biochemical basis. (This doesn't mean anything about what you should do once diagnosed; it just means exercise in early pregnancy doesn't seem to predispose anyone to preeclampsia.)
