Objectives: Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) plays an important role in endothelial function. Hyperglycemia-induced impaired redox status is 1 of the well-known pathophysiologic characteristics of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and it plays a crucial role in the causes of disease. Our aim was to clarify any possible relationship between the ICAM-1 Lys469Glu polymorphism and systemic redox status in women with and without GDM. Also, we investigated whether this polymorphism could be associated with a change for better or worse as evidenced by clinical and redox biomarkers.
