U.S. gets "D" on preterm birth rates

The article doesn't mention PE (only mentions hypertension in the context of it being treatable if caught early, allowing babies to make it past 37 weeks...?).

It seems to me that the article focuses on the currently preventable causes of preterm birth. Given the prevalence of PE and related disorders, however, I'm surprised not to see PE research at least mentioned. I've always wondered to what extent the March of Dimes focuses on PE, if at all?
