Using exome-enriched RNA sequencing and machine learning, researchers tracked down a set of circulating maternal transcripts for predicting severe early-onset preeclampsia.

Under a two-year partnership, the companies plan to discover targets and disease mechanisms for infertility and pregnancy-related conditions, including preeclampsia.

The companies plan to explore opportunities to use Thermo Fisher's LC-MS instrumentation to develop tools to determine the risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes.

The researchers hope to eventually develop a point-of-care assay to detect conditions that lead to high-risk pregnancies before symptoms occur.

The partners will request samples from more than 2,500 existing and new participants in the foundation's Preeclampsia Registry for sequencing analysis.

The new assay is part of the company's prenatal and women's health offerings, but it is also developing a preeclampsia test and technology for gastrointestinal testing.

A new study finds that a placental protein linked with preeclampsia can be targeted by RNA silencing, according to the New Scientist.

Researchers identified immune activity changes in first-trimester placenta and decidua samples profiled through single-cell RNA sequencing.

NX Prenatal and Indiana University School of Medicine are collaborating to develop exosome blood tests for preterm birth risk and preeclampsia.
