There's also an Israeli company doing some interesting work in this area, though we haven't gotten a briefing from them in awhile so I'm not sure what the latest is.

Pretty much all PE studies will be looking at placental trophoblast cells.
Science! The articles you don't want to miss:
The Preeclampsia Puzzle (New Yorker) and Silent Struggle: A New Theory of Pregnancy (New York Times)
Looking for recent articles and studies?
A chance to participate in research? For us on Facebook or Twitter?
