Özet

Objective Metformin has been reported to reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia. It is also known to influence soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 level, which correlates significantly with the gestational age at onset and severity of pre-eclampsia. The main aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials was to determine whether metformin use is associated with the incidence of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP).
