The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of urine concentrations of 12 proteins as a risk parameter for developing preeclampsia (PE). A nested case–control study was designed to determine protein concentrations in urine from women predicted to develop PE (WPD-PE) and normotensive pregnancies (controls). Protein profiles were determined at 12, 16(More)
