To examine concentrations of three cardiovascular propeptides in umbilical cord plasma of neonates born to mothers with Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes. Measurement of cardiovascular markers in umbilical cord plasma may potentially help identify neonates at risk of postnatal complications. Neonates born to mothers with diabetes have an increased risk of neonatal morbidity and mortality, and measurement of these new biomarkers may potentially help identify neonates at risk of these complications.
