Preeclampsia (PE) is hypertension with proteinuria that develops during pregnancy and affects at least 5% of pregnancies. The Effect of Folic Acid Supplementation in Pregnancy on Preeclampsia: the Folic Acid Clinical Trial (FACT) aims to recruit 3,656 high risk women to evaluate a new prevention strategy for PE: supplementation of folic acid throughout(More)

INTRODUCTION Observational studies suggest that folic acid supplementation during pregnancy can reduce the risk of preeclampsia (PE). No randomized controlled trial has been conducted to demonstrate the effect of folic acid supplementation on PE. OBJECTIVES FACT aims to determine efficacy on a new PE prevention strategy of high dose folic acid(More)
