Objective: To compare the urine protein–creatinine ratio with urinalysis to predict significant proteinuria (⩾300 mg per day).Study Design: A total of 116 paired spot urine samples and 24-h urine collections were obtained prospectively from women at risk for preeclampsia. Urine protein–creatinine ratio and urinalysis were compared to the 24-h urine collection.Result: The urine protein–creatinine ratio had better discriminatory power than urinalysis: the receiver operating characteristic curve… CONTINUE READING
