OBJECTIVE To investigate the potential value of maternal serum placental growth factor (PlGF) in first-trimester screening for pre-eclampsia (PE). METHODS The concentration of PlGF at 11 + 0 to 13 + 6 weeks' gestation was measured in samples from 127 pregnancies that developed PE, including 29 that required delivery before 34 weeks (early PE) and 98 with late PE, 88 cases of gestational hypertension (GH) and 609 normal controls. The distributions of PlGF multiples of the median (MoM) in the… CONTINUE READING
