The effects of placental ischemia on blood pressure and many facets seen in preeclampsia can be attenuated with inhibition of T cells either by blockade of antigen presenting cells interacting with T cells or by overall T cell deficiency. Importantly, these data suggests the potential use of anti- inflammatories targeting T cell suppression as a therapeutic for preeclampsia. These studies highlight the importance of targeting CD4+ T cell suppression as an avenue to decrease blood pressure, cytokine production, anti-angiogenic factors, autoantibodies and uterine artery resistive index to improve preeclampsia symptoms late in pregnancy in PE women.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
