The plasma levels of heparin cofactor II were determined in pregnant women who were either normotensive, or had essential hypertension, gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia during the third trimester and 72 h after delivery. Heparin cofactor II levels in the pre-eclampsia group were depressed. The clinical relevance of this finding is the potential utility of heparin cofactor II plasma levels in the differential diagnostic between non- proteinuric hypertension and pre-eclampsia.
