Preeclampsia and Circulating Biomarkers
In order to assess circulating biomarkers of cardiovascular risk, we will conduct a 10-year follow-up study comparing 32 exposed (women with a history of pregnancy complicated by preeclampsia) and 32 unexposed (women with a history of uncomplicated pregnancy).
Participants will be recruited from a well-characterised cohort, previously assembled during their pregnancies, at the Department of Obstetrics at Randers Regional Hospital in 2001-2004.
Blood and urine samples, collected during their pregnancies, are stored in a biobank, thus rendering the possibility of longitudinal assessment.
Postpartum CVD Risk in Women With Previous Preeclampsia.
