Diagnosis Prediction of pregnancy complications, hypertension, and obstetric complications
Gestational hypertension is an important obstetric disorder that occurs in 5-7% of all pregnancies and is responsible for 70,000 maternal deaths and 500,000 fetal deaths worldwide. Symptoms include hypertension, proteinuria, kidney damage, liver dysfunction, neurological disorders, and fetal growth failure.
The causes and pathogenesis of hypertension have been much discussed, but have yet to be elucidated.
In addition, there is no marker for early detection of gestational hypertension, and our laboratory is aiming to develop a biomarker using exosomes.
