These findings indicate that increased expression of metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 promotes the occurrence of high-fat diet-induced preeclampsia in pregnant rats.

Therefore, the control of fat intake is significant for the prevention of pregnancy-induced eclampsia.

The study has been published in the Neural Regeneration Research.
