Recent evidence has pointed to the beginning of pregnancy as the time when biological cascades begin that cause common diseases of pregnancy. This opens the door to developing bloods test in early pregnancy predicting who will develop problems, and to hunt for novel proteins in the bloodstream that are causing the illnesses. 'Proteomic technology' will be used, a new cutting edge tool that can scan the entire protein pool in mum's blood in a single experiment.
