Objectives: To investigate maternal serum catalase, myeloperoxidase and ferroxidase levels in pregnant women with Hyperemesis Gravidarum and to compare the results with healthy pregnancies. Material and methods: In this study, 60 female patients admitted to the Health Sciences University, Gazi Yasargil Training and Research Hospital, Gynecology and Obstetrics Department were evaluated. The patients were divided into two groups: Group 1 included 30 pregnant women with hyperemesis gravidarum; Group 2 included 30 healthy pregnant women. Pregnancies over 14 weeks were excluded from the study. Results: The laboratory and laboratory characteristics of both groups are shown in Table 1. No significant differences were found between the groups in terms of the maternal age, gestational age, gravidity, parity, fasting glucose level, and BMI. The maternal blood CAT levels were significantly higher in the HG group (219.6 ± 111.3 kU/L) when compared to the control group (71.5 ± 52.5 kU/L) (p < 0.001). The maternal blood MPO levels were lower in the control group (121.5 ± 36.3 U/L) than in the study group (90.9 ± 56.4 U/L) (p = 0.016). However, the ferroxidase levels were similar between the two groups. The independent variables BMI, age, parity, gravidity and gestational week effects were adjusted according to the logistic regression method with groups. Significant differences were observed between the two groups in the levels of CAT (0.001), MPO (0.005) values. Conclusions: This study suggests that antioxidants in response to oxidative stress gave different reactions with different mechanisms; Also, we believe that insufficient food intake suppresses the immune system and this has an important role on antioxidants.
