Pre-eclampsia is a major cause of maternal mortality & morbidity in low- and middle-income countries, such as India and Fiji. Early detection is highy expensive, time-consuming, and dependent upon the expertise of diagnostic technicians. This project proposes to develop an inexpensive point-of-care tool to measure inflammation molecules as biomarkers of pre-eclampsia. The tool can be operated by lay people, and with higher predictive yields than conventional methods.
