Poster summary

Pre-eclampsia, or toxaemia, is a potentially fatal condition characterized by extremely high blood pressure (hypertension). Women who are pregnant are more likely to suffer from hypertension disorders such as gestational hypertension. In addition to placental abruption, HELLP syndrome, fetal growth restriction, and preterm birth, pre-eclampsia can also result in organ damage such as strokes and cardiovascular disease. An individual who has a preeclamptic condition is twice as likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke later in life. The miR-200 family has been linked with preeclampsia and upregulated in preeclamptic plasma and placenta. Furthermore, aspirin suppressed the miR-200 family, and these miR-200 family-mediated cell activities, such as cell invasion and EMT alterations, were entirely reversed. The most recent clinical studies back up the use of low-dose aspirin to prevent pre-eclampsia. Prescriptions for low-dose aspirin are issued to prevent placental complications and foetal growth restriction.
