These include transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-[beta]), whose participation in immunoregulation and angiogenesis has been well-established, and angiogenic factors placenta growth factor (PIGF), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

On the contrary, it was displayed that the reduced level of PIGF below the cutoff value was associated with an increased probability of developing preeclampsia with odds ratio 20 [95% confidence interval 10.2-39.5].
In patients with term preeclampsia, sEng was increased beginning at 12-14 weeks, free PIGF decreased beginning at 9-11 weeks, and sFlt1 increased less than 5 weeks before preeclampsia onset.
In addition, endothelial cells produce various cytokines, including HGF, VEGF, PDGF, and PIGF. These cytokines stimulate the self-renewal and survival of adjacent cancer stem cells [8, 9].
Algunos genes implicados en placentacion como ACVR2 y STOX1, asi como otros implicados en angiogenesis (PIGF, VEGF, Flt-1 y ENG) parecen ser los mas indicados para investigaciones futuras en el largo camino de encontrar el gen o grupo de genes asociados al desarrollo de la preeclampsia.

There are five VEGF isoforms (VEGF-A, B, C, D, and E) as well as placental growth factor (PIGF) in the VEGF family [8, 9].
Accumulating evidence has revealed the importance of various factors including SDF-1, VEGF, placenta-derived growth factor (PIGF), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), GM-CSF, and IL-6 [87] in the process of EPC mobilization.
