Thanks for posting, Kerisue! The study has also been posted on the Foundation facebook page - I'm glad you posted it here. It's so hard - between the website, forums, and fb page - to make sure all the information is getting posted everywhere.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Preeclamp ... 9881357937http://www.sciencecodex.com/pilot_study ... eeclampsia
Our executive director, Eleni Tsigas, spoke to one of the co-authors:We asked Dr. Thadhani about next steps and he said, "Dear Eleni,
Thank you for your interest in our work. These data hold promise but it is very early in the process, and we now need to plan for the next step. We cannot give up given this is an attractive approach, i.e., removal of a toxic factor rather than giving something potentially harmful to mother and baby. As we plan a larger trial, we look forward for your continued support.
If we could get just a few more days for mom and baby to get steroids for lung maturity it would be a huge step forward.
