Abstract

Objective: To investigate peripartum progesterone metabolism by measuring its lipid precursors. Methods: Serum was collected from eight pregnant women not in labor during the third trimester and again during active labor. Samples were analyzed using quantitative spectrophotometric absorbance techniques for apolipo-protein A-l, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), and total cholesterol. Results: Remote from labor, the mean gestational age antepartum was 35.6 weeks; during active labor it was 39.2 weeks. The amount of apolipoprotein A-l present was 182.0 mg/dL before labor and 156.8 mg/dL during active labor; HDL cholesterol was 59.3 mg/dL before labor and 37.5 mg/dL during active labor, and total cholesterol was 226.6 mg/dL before labor and 144.1 mg/dL during active labor. All differences were significant at P
