Hi Claudia,

Not sure if your question was answered elsewhere, but just in case not... The Atryn study (PRESERVE-1) recently concluded enrollment and the data is being analyzed. We expect to see results soon. It is still a few steps away from clinical availability, but if the findings are positive we may see this used for early onset preeclampsia to extend pregnancies for a little while, giving baby more time to mature. We'll certainly be posting results on our website, so stay tuned...

I realize that may not help for anybody currently pregnant, but it may be available within the next couple of years.

Best wishes,

Atryn for Early Preeclampsia?

Postby ClaudiaAFernandez » Sun Apr 24, 2016 08:53 pm

Sorry to post this on 2 different forums....

I am 29 weeks Today, had PE on my first pregnancy at 36 weeks, 15 years later I am pregnant again, excited and worried also for the possiblity of getting PE for the second time, the big difference is that I entered on this pregnancy with chronic High BP, the Dr changed my BP meds for metildopa.. I have had a few jumps on my BP but still considered as controlled by the doctors, I know these weeks are the most critical for my baby and really just hoping the best to reach the 32nd week mark... but still I want to learn more about how my pregnancy can be prolonged in case that I get PE soon...

I read about a study with Atryn (Antithrombin III) on this site: seems to be on the third phase... has someone has been medicated with this drug? I know that this is related with heporin and other anti coagulants....the study only considered women with early severe preeclampsia (24-28 weeks) and the goal is to see if the treatment can prolong their pregnancy without adverse effects...
