Aim: There is substantial evidence that genetic factors play a role in pre-eclampsia. The aim of this study was to determine whether genetic variability in the encoding of genes for glutathione S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) and glutathione S-transferase T1 (GSTT1) contributes to individual differences in susceptibility to pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, or hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets (HELLP syndrome).
