Several proteins were specifically enriched in isolated preeclampsia and depleted when preeclampsia was complicated by Intra Uterine Growth Restriction. These findings suggest that the growth restricted foeto-placental unit is able to moderate some changes in maternal plasma composition.
These placentas are flipping switches all over the place, and the differences between PE and PE+IUGR might be possible to tease out of we can narrow down *which* proteins get switched from normal, and how. This is just a discussion of a newish technique for finding which proteins are involved.
