      Preeclampsia is a hypertensive and inflammatory pregnancy disorder associated with cholesterol accumulation and inflammation at the maternal-fetal interface. Preeclampsia can be complicated with fetal growth restriction ...
    • Decidual and placental NOD1 is associated with inflammation in normal and preeclamptic pregnancies 

      Rakner, Johanne Johnsen; Silva, Gabriela; Mundal, Siv Boon; Thaning, Astrid Josefin; Elschot, Mattijs; Ostrop, Jenny; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Gierman, Lobke; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Introduction: Inflammation is a normal physiological process that increases to harmful levels in preeclampsia. It affects the interaction between maternal immune cells and fetal trophoblasts at both sites of the maternal-fetal ...
    • Placental inflammation by HMGB1 activation of TLR4 at the syncytium 

      Tangerås, Line Haugstad; Silva, Gabriela; Stødle, Guro; Gierman, Lobke; Skei, Bente; Collett, Karin; Beversmark, Anne Lise; Skråstad, Ragnhild Bergene; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      Normal pregnancy is characterized by an elevated inflammatory state involving the placenta. The placental inflammation is further increased in preeclampsia, resulting in release of harmful danger signals to the maternal ...

    • Placental inflammation in pre-eclampsia by Nod-like receptor protein (NLRP)3 inflammasome activation in trophoblasts 

      Stødle, Guro; Silva, Gabriela; Tangerås, Line Haugstad; Gierman, Lobke; Nervik, Ingunn; Dahlberg, Unn; Sun, Chen; Aune, Marie Hjelmseth; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Pre‐eclampsia is associated with increased levels of cholesterol and uric acid and an inflamed placenta expressing danger‐sensing pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Crystalline cholesterol and uric acid activate the PRR ...
    • TLR3 expression by maternal and fetal cells at the maternal-fetal interface in normal and preeclamptic pregnancies 

      Gierman, Lobke; Silva, Gabriela; Pervaiz, Zahra; Rakner, Johanne Johnsen; Mundal, Siv Boon; Thaning, Astrid J.; Nervik, Ingunn; Elschot, Mattijs; Mathew, Seema; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Inflammation and oxidative stress at the maternal‐fetal interface characterize the placental dysfunction that underlies the pregnancy disorder preeclampsia. Specialized fetal trophoblasts directly interact with leukocytes ...
    • Toll-like receptor profiling of seven trophoblast cell lines warrants caution for translation to primary trophoblasts 

      Gierman, Lobke; Stødle, Guro; Tangerås, Line Haugstad; Austdal, Marie; Olsen, Guro Dalheim; Follestad, Turid; Skei, Bente; Rian, Kristin; Gundersen, Astrid; Austgulen, Rigmor; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Introduction Excessive placental inflammation is associated with pregnancy complications. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are sensors for danger signals from infections and damaged tissue and initiate inflammation. Trophoblasts ...
