This article was originally published in Clinica
Researchers from the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development have found that women with preeclampsia, a potentially fatal complication of pregnancy, have an imbalance of two chemicals which control blood pressure. The condition has no known cure other than delivery, but the discovery that abnormal ratios of prostacyclin and thromboxane are present in women months before they develop symptoms could help earlier identification and lead to a treatment, the researchers report in the July 28 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
