About this book


This volume presents the latest developments and techniques used to study the physiopathology, diagnosis, and treatment of pre-eclampsia. Written for clinicians, obstetricians, basic scientists, researchers, and students the chapters in this book provide methods to study placental function using in vitro and ex vivo model systems, comprehensive genetic analysis of pre-eclampsia, identifying critical angiogenic factors associated with the development of pre-eclampsia, and controlled experiments that investigate potential therapies. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls, as well as a description of the limitations and advantages of the described techniques.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Pre-Eclampsia: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the critical role of the placenta in the maternal-fetal relationship.
