No Time To Wait: Women Need Accurate Preeclampsia Testing Now
Signing this petition shows your support for better testing to diagnose and predict preeclampsia. The Preeclampsia Foundation represents women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Biomarkers are powerful laboratory tools that can be used to detect and predict pathology before symptoms. Yet healthcare providers are still using antiquated tools: blood pressure, proteinuria, maternal symptoms, and basic blood chemistries which are highly variable, nonspecific and poorly predictive of outcomes. We are calling upon leaders in research, industry, regulatory bodies, policy makers, professional societies, and eventually payers to engage and address this call to action, removing barriers and accelerating the development and adoption of biomarkers to improve screening and diagnosis of hypertensive and placental disorders of pregnancy.
