    Abstract

    Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and its genotype have been shown to play a role in the pathophysiology of pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction and possibly in adult onset chronic diseases. The physiological changes of ACE and the influence of its genotype during the intrapartum period are not well known. Hence the aim of this study was to assess serum ACE activity and its genotype in mothers and infants at term in relation to labour and mode of delivery.
