Pre-eclampsia and Eclampsia

Eclampsia is an extremely serious, rare and potentially life-threatening complication of pregnancy, and is characterized by the appearance of tonic-clonic seizures, usually in a patient who had developed pre-eclampsia. Eclampsia can be characterized as seizures and possibly coma that happen during pregnancy, but are not due to pre-existing brain disorders.

Eclampsia and Live Cell Therapy

Progressive immune depression accompanied by a parallel drop in parathyroid hormone levels to critical values has been demonstrated in patients with eclampsia. Patients with pre-eclampsia delivering by cesarean section were treated post-operatively with the thymus extract, T-activin.  Cellular immunity was compared with patients receiving no T-activin.  A marked immuno-stimulatory effect of the thymus extract on T-lymphocytes, and especially on theophylline-resistant T- lymphocyte subpopulations, was observed. The effect of T-activin was most marked on the third to fifth day of the postoperative period.
