Abstract

A prospective randomised clinical trial comprising 510 pregnant patients was performed to determine whether supplementation with calcium, low-dose aspirin or a combination of calcium and low-dose aspirin can lower the incidence of hypertension in pregnancy. Greatest benefits were obtained with calcium. Perinatal mortality was lowest in the aspirin group.
