preeclampsia

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.

Researchers profiled the composition and gene content of microbial communities in mouth, gut, and vaginal samples collected from 10 pregnant women.

Investigators identified candidate protein markers from aptamer-based proteomic profiles of samples from women with or without late-onset preeclampsia.
