Aims of the project:
(1) To validate an optimized algorithm for interpreting angiogenic factors to predict pregnancy complications and provide evidence of its general applicability;
(2) To provide evidence to translate the use of these markers into clinical practice by following up on a subsequent randomized trial by providing knowledge of the test results to clinicians, aiming at reducing the rate of premature births among women with normal sFlt1/PlGF ratios and more appropriately using resources.
