Fire up Medline and hunt down papers by people at the Toxicology
Department in Oulu (Finland) - eg. Hannu Raunio, Olavi Pelkonen,
Markku Pasanen etc.  These guys have been working on drug
metabolising enzymes in placental samples for years.  Last time
I heard Hannu talk he had some really nice RT-PCR data from
placentae so their methodology must be good.
