Disentangling Fetal And Maternal Susceptibility For Pre-Eclampsia

Described are the results of extensive genotyping of seven candidate genes previously reported as conferring susceptibility to pre-eclampsia.

The authors conclude that none of the genetic variants tested in this large study of strictly defined pre-eclamptic pregnancies confers a high risk of disease.

The results emphasize the importance of conducting rigorously designed studies of adequate size to provide precise genetic risks with narrow confidence intervals, if overreporting of false-positive results is to be avoided.
