Postby admin » Fri Sep 02, 2011 09:06 am

The Preeclampsia Foundation makes arrangements with approved investigators to make enrollment information available about their studies. The following preeclampsia research trials have secured all human subjects approvals and have been screened by our medical and ethics experts. If you are interested in participating in one of the following studies, please contact the primary study investigator directly to inquire about enrollment.

Immune System Study (Nationwide)

This research study at the University of Washington School of Medicine seeks to understand how the immune system may play a role in preeclampsia. Specifically, the research is trying to assess family genetic relationships that may influence mother and baby immune responses during and after pregnancy. This study is recruiting women (currently or previously pregnant, living anywhere in the United States) with a history of preeclampsia, as well as their families. If you are interested in participating, you will be given two cheek swabs to collect genetic material from the cells in your mouth. You will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire about your pregnancy history. Family members, specifically your biological children and your mother, can also participate in the study. If you agree and your family members are interested in participating they will be given cheek swab kits to collect cheek samples as well. For more information about this study please contact Evangelyn Nkwopara, Study Coordinator, by emailThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Pre-pregnancy Risk Factors Study (New England Area)

This research study is recruiting women who are healthy, 18 to 42 years of age, have regular menstrual cycles, and are not using hormonal contraception. Eligible women need to have a history of preeclampsia, or a family history of the condition, and be thinking about becoming pregnant. Recruitment is restricted to the Northeast Region of the United States.
