Abstract

Preeclampsia, one of the most serious complications of pregnancy, affects around 3-8% of all pregnancies. Sadly, there is no treatment. We have developed a new technique to deliver treatments only to the placenta, sparing the mother and baby from side effects. We will test whether this technique can treat the source of preeclampsia, the placenta, in mouse models and human tissue samples in the laboratory. This work may offer possibilities of new treatments to other pregnancy complications.
