Researchers are developing a new blood test that can predict a woman’s risk of pre-eclampsia, a life-threatening condition that can occur during pregnancy.

An international team of scientists and physicians used sophisticated technology and data analysis to detect 14 metabolites that can be helpful in predicting pre-eclampsia risk.

The researchers hope to develop a simple blood test for pre-eclampsia, which is cheap and easily accessible to hospitals.

Pre-eclampsia is characterised by high blood pressure and high levels of protein in urine. Symptoms mostly appear during second half of pregnancy.

The study has been reported in Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association.
