The Preeclampsia Registry

Preeclampsia is a life-threatening complication of pregnancy, diagnosed by the development of high blood pressure and protein in the urine in the latter half of pregnancy. Preeclampsia affects approximately 5 percent of pregnancies, up to 300,000 pregnant women in the U.S. annually. Approximately 75,000 of these women suffer severe maternal ...

Phase N/A

Standard 24-hour Urine Protein vs Shorter Period for Diagnosis of Pre-eclampsia

Literature review and project rationale: Preeclampsia is a common complication of pregnancy, affecting 6-8% of all pregnancies and constitutes a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Preeclampsia is liable to endanger the lives of both the gravida and the fetus, particularly if treatment is initiated inappropriately or in an ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Serum Markers sFLt1 and PlGF for the Prediction of the Complications of the Placental Vascular Pathologies in the 3rd Quarter of the Pregnancy.

The pre-eclampsia is a frequent pathology, concerning approximately 5 % of the pregnancies. It is a major cause of mortality, mainly in the developing country. His incidence tends to increase in the developed countries. In the absence of adapted coverage, the pre-eclampsia can evolve into severe maternal and\or foetal complications ...

Phase N/A

First Trimester Placental Assessment in the Screening of Preeclampsia and Intrauterine Growth Restriction

Preeclampsia (PE) and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) are clinical manifestations of placental insufficiency. These complications affect 5-15% of pregnancies, and are responsible for up to 20% of preterm births. Women who develop PE during pregnancy also have an increased risk for cardiovascular events, both at short and long term. This ...

Phase N/A

sFlt-1:PlGF Ratio in Diagnosing Superimposed Preeclampsia

Subjects with a diagnosis of chronic hypertension made prenatally or in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy (+/- medical therapy). The clinical diagnosis of preeclampsia will follow the current criteria outlined by ACOG (American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists) 10. Study/Project Procedures: Blood draw at the time of initial presentation ...

Phase N/A

Blood Pressure Antihypertensive Treatment and Preeclampsia in Pregnant Wom-en With Pre-existing Diabetes

Aim: First, to investigate the prevalence of a) confirmed hypertension, b) white coat hypertension and c) normal blood pressure in pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes. Second, to explore the prevalence of preeclampsia and preterm delivery in women with pre-existing diabetes with a) confirmed hypertension, b) white coat hypertension and c) ...

Phase N/A

Catestatin and Hypertension in Pregnancy

Catestatin is a kind of protein involved with cardiovascular disease. Accumulated evidence shows that Catestatin may be a predictor of primary hypertension, but whether it plays the same role in pregnant hypertensive disorders needs to be determined. By measuring the plasma level of Catestatin, main biochemical marks and UCG in ...

Phase N/A

IMproved PRegnancy Outcome by Early Detection

Sample size calculations have been considered extensively and given the complexity of the study; there is no single simple solution. For the purpose of sample size estimation in the overall study, we used a binary outcome and associated measures of sensitivity and likelihood ratio as determinants of the value of ...

Phase N/A

First-trimester Prediction of Preeclampsia

Background: Preeclampsia (PE) is a placenta-mediated pregnancy complication related to adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes, including intra-uterine growth restriction (IUGR) and perinatal death. A growing body of evidence suggests that the preterm and severe forms of PE are associated with deep placentation disorders that occur early in gestation. Over the ...

Phase N/A

Anti-Angiogenic Preeclampsia Milieu Impairs Infant Lung and Vascular Development

The overall objective of this study is to determine whether the anti-angiogenic environment of preeclampsia results in pulmonary and vascular dysfunction in infants. Specifically, study investigators hypothesize that the anti- angiogenic environment of preeclampsia will impair pulmonary development and promote vascular dysfunction in infants. Furthermore, study investigators hypothesize that circulating ...
