Abstract

Introduction: Cadmium, lead, and vanadium, important pollutants produced from anthropogenic activities, have been suggested to be embryotoxic and fetotoxic in many studies. However, the causes of preeclampsia are little known and heavy metals merit further investigation. We tested whether late-onset preeclampsia (L-PrE) was associated with exposure to these metals.
