      <Abstract>Background : Oxidative stress is known to be a key factor associated with preeclampsia. Glutathione Peroxidase(GPx), an antioxidant enzyme along with cellular γ -Glutamyl transferase (GGT) is responsible for protecting cells from damage due to free radicals like hydrogen and lipid peroxides.Aim : To assess prooxidant and antioxidant GGT and GPx in pregnancy and preeclampsia.Design : A case control study.Material and methods: Estimation of malondialdehyde, GGT and GPx level in blood was carried out by chemical and enzymatic kit method in 20 non-pregnant women as controls, 20 pregnant women in first week of each trimester and 20 preeclampsia patients.Statistical analysis: Done by `t` test.Results and conclusion: Serum GGT though not significant increased in first trimester was found to be towards the upper limit of normal range in pregnant women and raised above normal in preeclampsia patients(p</Abstract>
