Abstract: Preeclampsia, a common pregnancy complication, is the leading cause of maternal death in Canada. Normal pregnancy is associated with a physiologic increase in coagulation activities. In preeclamptic women, this change is further exaggerated and may lead to thrombotic complications. We attempted to validate published associations with SNPs in genes for coagulation factors II, V and VII in a large sample of French-Canadian pregnant nulliparous women (307 cases were matched with two controls for BMI and maternal age). All genotypes were obtained by a PCR-ASO method combined to a fluorimetric detection. Power was 80 % (α = 0,05) to detect association if differences between rare allele frequencies had been superior to 3 % between groups. We observed no such difference. Genotypes distribution followed Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium for all SNPs studied. Thus, our results do not support a role for those SNPs in the pathophysiology of preeclampsia in the French Canadian population.
