Biomarkers for a successful pregnancy

17 Oct 2013 - 17 Oct 2013 - London, UK

Bookmark and Share

Successful biomarker profiling in pregnant or prenatal women could not only help predict the pregnancy risk to mothers, but also survival rate of the unborn child and any possible future complications. There is a wide range of possibility for using biomarkers in pregnancy and prenatal testing.  For example,  research is currently being undertaken to identify biomarkers for


•         ectopic pregnancy.

•         potential rejection of pregnancy by the mother

 •         possible cardiovascular issues

 •         maternal autoimmune development

 •         hypertensive disorders


 •         pregnancy outcome


•         Maternal Alcohol Consumption

•         Maternal tobacco use


•         reducing multiple pregnancy

to highlight just a few. This event aims to focus on the current research in this area and discuss the way forward in using biomarkers as a predictive and diagnostic tool to improve pregnancy outcome internationally

This event  has CPD accreditation and is part of the 2013 Pregnancy Summit -
