Scientists identify early signs of pregnancy complications in women with lupus
Researchers from Rockefeller University conducted an experiment, thanks to which they learned how to identify the early signs of pregnancy complications.
It turns out that in pregnant women with lupus erythematosus, early strains in RNA molecules that are present in the blood were detected: they can be used to calculate the probability of preeclampsia.
According to scientists, the results of the study may contribute to the development of methods for the treatment and prevention of other complications, such as spontaneous abortion or preterm birth.
Academics involved in the study of pregnant women with lupus erythematosus. To identify specific biomarkers, blood samples of the subjects were compared at regular intervals.
It turned out that some elements of immunity, as well as anti-inflammatory functions, were suppressed, but then the pattern changed several times throughout the pregnancy.
