Twin pregnancies have a higher risk of fetal growth restriction and preterm labor. The number of twin pregnancies is growing due to the increase in childbearing age, and early prediction in pregnant women is a key target. Obstetric complications are associated with oxidative stress; we hypothesize that low levels of antioxidants in maternal plasma in early pregnancy can help predict fetal complications. In pregnant women with twin gestations, a low plasma antioxidant status in the first trimester is associated with the development of fetal growth restriction. Furthermore, a low maternal level of the antioxidant hormone melatonin is associated with preterm labor and lower birth weight. View this paper.
