Catestatin is a kind of protein involved with cardiovascular disease. Accumulated evidence shows that Catestatin may be a predictor of primary hypertension, but whether it plays the same role in pregnant hypertensive disorders needs to be determined. By measuring the plasma level of Catestatin, main biochemical marks and UCG in healthy pregnancy and pregnancy with hypertension, the research may contribute to this problem.
