How can we make preeclampsia, a disease of exceptions, easier to recognize and diagnose? A new test in development may be the answer.

  • Overview

    A recent study following 346 pregnant patients found that 63 percent of the women were admitted into the hospital for uncertain diagnosis or delivery—all because preeclampsia has many of the same symptoms of other diseases.
