Abstract

A new study reports that a single blood test can be used to rule out the development of pre-eclampsia in women in whom the syndrome is suspected. Early interventions for pre-eclampsia are not yet available, but this finding is likely to change the approach to diagnosis of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.
