Abstract
Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific condition, and it still remains one of the most common causes of maternal mortality in the developed world. Although the exact cause of preeclampsia has not been identified, it is most widely accepted that preeclampsia results from incomplete placentation. Interestingly, normotensive intrauterine growth restriction also shows the same defect of placentation. In preeclampsia, the maternal syndrome develops from a number of alternative pathways leading to uteroplacental mismatch and, consequently, the release of endothelium-activating factors. This research is focused on neutrophil activation and the hypothesis for this research was that maternal neutrophils and monocytes are inappropriately activated in preeclampsia but not in normotensive intrauterine growth restriction.

Abstract
The common epithelial ovarian tumors appear to arise from the ovarian surface epithelium (OSE), which is a simple squamous-to-cuboidal meso^helium covering the ovary. The exact mechanism of ovarian tumorigenesis is not well known even though this disease is the most frequent cause of cancer death in gynecological malignancies. Repeated ovulation contributes to neoplastic transformation of OSE, indicating that the process of healing ruptured OSE may contribute to the disease. Therefore, it has been hypothesized that endocrine and autocrine factors may influence the occurrence of ovarian tumors in women.
