Characterization and Epigenetics of Post-Partum Preeclampsia

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will recruit women with post partum pre-eclampsia and match them to controls without postpartum pre-eclampsia to identify an epigenetic signature that is specific to women with post partum pre-eclampsia to help characterize the underlying pathophysiology of post partum pre-eclampsia.

Description

Preeclampsia (PEC) is a heterogeneous disease that complicates 5-8% of pregnancies. Approximately 10% of PEC patients will present with post-partum PEC without having developed the syndrome during the pregnancy (PP-PEC). Management of post-partum preeclampsia (PP-PEC) is challenging because many women do not seek care until neurologic symptoms result from severe-range elevated blood pressure. The pathogenesis and clinical characteristics of PP-PEC are understudied and poorly understood. Identifying clinical risk factors and biomarkers of PP-PEC would help to identify women at risk.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Onset of HYPERREFLEXIA; SEIZURES; or COMA in a previously diagnosed pre-eclamptic patient (PRE-ECLAMPSIA).

A complication of PREGNANCY, characterized by a complex of symptoms including maternal HYPERTENSION and PROTEINURIA with or without pathological EDEMA. Symptoms may range between mild and severe. Pre-eclampsia usually occurs after the 20th week of gestation, but may develop before this time in the presence of trophoblastic disease.

A small colorless crystal used as an anticonvulsant, a cathartic, and an electrolyte replenisher in the treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. It causes direct inhibition of action potentials in myometrial muscle cells. Excitation and contraction are uncoupled, which decreases the frequency and force of contractions. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p1083)

A syndrome of HEMOLYSIS, elevated liver ENZYMES, and low blood platelets count (THROMBOCYTOPENIA). HELLP syndrome is observed in pregnant women with PRE-ECLAMPSIA or ECLAMPSIA who also exhibit LIVER damage and abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION.

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
