Preeclampsia clinical trials at UC Health
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible females ages 18 years and up
This study aims to evaluate whether NSAIDs (Non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs) administered during the postpartum period influence blood pressure in women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. The study design is a prospective double blinded randomized control trial with participants randomized to receive postpartum analgesic regimens with and without NSAIDs.

The purpose of this study is to 1. Identify a cut-off for the ratio of the serum proteins soluble FMS-like Tyrosine Kinase 1 (sFLT-1) and placental growth factor (PlGF) that identifies women will who develop preeclampsia with severe features within 2 weeks of testing (clinically positive) from those who do not develop preeclampsia with severe features within 2 weeks of testing (clinically negative) among preterm pregnant women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. And 2. To validate the cut-off the ratio of sFLT-1 and PlGF and to validate the performance of the automated assays used to find the cut-off. Test performance includes positive predictive value, negative predictive value, sensitivity, and specificity. Subjects will provide blood, urine, and saliva samples at the time of enrollment. Samples will be frozen for batch assessment of sFLT-1 and PlGF levels by automated assays. Clinicians, subjects, and researchers will be blinded to protein level assessment, therefore assay results will not affect clinical management.
