During gestation, placenta produce protective mechanisms against lacunar blood coagulation by synthesis glycosaminoglycans by the maternal epithelium of placenta. Due to exacerbation of herpes virus infection during pregnancy, synthesis of glycosaminoglycans by maternal placenta is reduced, as well as the content of heparin in placental homogenate.
