Immunological Distribution of the Placental Lactogene and IGF-1 Receptor on Free-chorionic Villi of the Newborns Small for Gestational Age Placentae
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study was observe differences in the immunological distribution of the placental lactogene and IGF-1 receptor on free-chorionic villi, between studied groups and to relate the neonatal diagnosis of PEG with morphometric and immunohystochemical characteristics of the placenta. A total of, twelve placentas from AEG newborn and twelve from PEG newborn were obtained from the Maternity Ward of Temuco, Chile. H&E, Alcian blue and Massonâ€™s trichromic stains, as well as Hematoxilyn- PAS. In the immunoperoxidase technique, were used: 1) placental lactogen (polyclonal, dilution 1:200, NCL-PLP, Novocastra) 2) Insuline- 1 like growth factor (monoclonal, dilution 1:200, NCL-GHR, Novocastra). Differences between PEG and AEG placentae in the immnunostaing for placental lactogen and IGF-1 receptor in the sincitial throphoblast were not observed.
