Major Medical Journal Releases Special Preeclampsia/Eclampsia Edition

August 31, 2021 – Melbourne, FL –– The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, commonly known as the Gray Journal, released a special edition dedicated solely to preeclampsia and eclampsia. As the oldest journal in the obstetrics and gynecology field, the Gray Journal has frequently featured preeclampsia in individual research articles, but this is the first time an entire edition has been focused on the condition. The edition includes over two dozen expert reviews on everything from detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of this complex disorder.

Preeclampsia Foundation CEO Eleni Z. Tsigas served as the first-ever patient Guest Editor, also contributing an article on behalf of the Foundation called “The Voice and Views of the Patient and her Family.”

Tsigas said, “Dr. Roberto Romero, Editor-in-Chief for Obstetrics of AJOG, and Chief of the Perinatology Research Branch, NICHD/NIH, asked us to write about the Foundation’s 21-year impact on the field. Our patient perspective drives our mission, the impact we’ve made, and our call to action to the medical community. I hope readers will appreciate the patient and family stories, and a perspective not considered often enough in medical journals.”

The article, which was published in conjunction with the Preeclampsia Foundation's 21st anniversary, lays out a vision of the future of medicine in which patients, their families, providers, researchers, and other stakeholders come together to address many of the obstacles and riddles that preeclampsia continues to create in the obstetric field. The article features multiple patient stories from diverse perspectives to illustrate the complexity of patient experiences. The link for the article is: https://www.ajog.org/article/S0002-9378(20)31289-8/fulltext.

The Gray Journal dates back over 150 years as a leading journal devoted to the full spectrum of obstetrics and gynecology. All articles about preeclampsia published in the Supplement are available online to subscribers and non-subscribers. Videos for the articles are also available, courtesy of the publisher, Elsevier. The Supplement is available on the Journal’s website:  https://www.ajog.org/preeclampsia.
