University of Iowa researchers have discovered a biomarker that could give expecting mothers and their doctors the first simple blood test to reliably predict that a pregnant woman may develop preeclampsia, at least as early as 6 weeks into the pregnancy. Gideon Zamba, associate professor of biostatistics in the College of Public Health, was part of the research team.
