Abstract

Perinatal morbidity and mortality are significantly higher in pregnancies complicated by chronic hypoxia and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Clinically, placental insufficiency and IUGR are strongly associated with a fetoplacental inflammatory response. To explore this further, hypoxia was induced in one fetus in twin-bearing pregnant sheep (n=9) by performing single umbilical artery ligation (SUAL) at 110 days gestation. Five ewes were administered the anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine (SSZ) daily, beginning 24h before surgery. Fetal blood gases and inflammatory markers were examined. In both SSZ- and placebo-treated ewes, SUAL fetuses were hypoxic and growth-restricted at 1 week (P
