Of the estimated 50 million babies born to first time mothers worldwide every year, 2.4 million are born in the 27 EU countries. Almost 1 in 20 of these pregnancies are complicated by pre-eclampsia, a disease of late pregnancy. Pre-eclampsia is a complex pathogenesis that requires a personalised medicine approach.
Our project has set out to improve pregnancy outcomes by early detection of this condition.
The IMPROvED programme includes a large scale phase IIa prognostic hospital-based clinical study. We will recruit 5000 first time mothers, over 2 years, to academic medical centres across Europe (Ireland, UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Germany).
