Eclampsia clinical trials at University of California Health
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
open to eligible females ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the effect of low-dose aspirin on recovery from severe preeclampsia (a high blood pressure disorder of pregnancy) among women who have given birth. We hypothesize that taking aspirin for the first week after giving birth will enhance recovery from preeclampsia by decreasing the levels of a protein called soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase (sFlt-1), which is thought to be a main contributor to the development of preeclampsia, and speeding up return to a normal blood pressure.
at UC Irvine
open to eligible females ages 18-60
This study evaluates the utility of expanded panel non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) in detecting confined placental mosaicism of rare autosomal trisomies among pregnancies with placentally-mediated complications, including fetal growth restriction and severe preeclampsia.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The goal of this observational study is to develop and validate cell-free RNA-based biomarkers for predicting a variety of adverse pregnancy outcomes in a pregnant person population. The main question it aims to answer are: 1. Can cell-free RNA-based biomarkers predict which pregnant people are at greatest risk of developing adverse pregnancy outcomes (e.g., preterm birth, preeclampsia)? 2. What is the performance of such biomarkers when predicting an adverse pregnancy outcome (e.g., sensitivity, specificity, PPV, NPV, TPR)?
