Information About Biophysical Markers
Best results in screening for elevated risk of pre-eclampsia are being achieved by using PlGF in combination with other parameters. The biophysical markers, Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) and Uterine Artery Pulsatility Index (PI) are much discussed in this respect. We have gathered some useful information on these markers, and it is found under the respective links.
Research on Therapies
Guidelines on pre-eclampsia prevention already make recommendations on the treatment of pregnancies judged to be at risk. The administration of low-dose aspirin started at an early stage of pregnancy is one of the suggested therapies attracting research interest. Notes on Therapy Research are under the link.
PerkinElmer products for pre-eclampsia are not available in all countries. For information on availability please contact your local sales representative.
