Well, the care and treatment haven't changed because we haven't found anything that works - and it's not for lack of trying! It's that this disease is an incredibly hard target... nothing works.

I think generally celebrities don't want their images used for this disease because preeclampsia is such ugly stuff. :(

http://www.preeclampsia.org/forum/viewt ... 20&t=17353 is a list of the ones we've been able to think of. (Many we have contacted, but many are unwilling to be our public face.)
Science! The articles you don't want to miss:
The Preeclampsia Puzzle (New Yorker) and Silent Struggle: A New Theory of Pregnancy (New York Times)
Looking for recent articles and studies? Lectures from researchers?
A chance to participate in research? For us on Facebook or Twitter?
