Blood Test Could Predict Pregnancy Complications
Researchers found a blood protein in pregnant women that could be a reliable indicator of pregnancy complications and poor growth of foetus. This may help them to develop a blood test to predict possible complications.
To assess whether levels of this blood protein, DLK 1, may be associated with foetal health, the team of researchers assessed the blood samples taken at around 36 weeks of pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes of 129 first-time mothers.
The researchers found that mothers with low levels of the DLK1 protein had more chances to have infants that were smaller for gestational age compared to those with higher DLK protein levels.
