Diagnosing Pre-eclampsia

Early detection of pre-eclampsia is crucial, but diagnosis can be challenging: clinical presentation can be variable and the disease often progresses over several weeks before a diagnosis is confirmed.1 Improved understanding of pre-eclampsia has led to the development of new placental growth factor (PlGF)-based tests that can help to identify women at high risk of developing the disease, and to ‘rule out’ in the short-term those who are not.2-5
