What's already known about this topic?

  • Our manuscript could be the counterpoint to the emerging concept that placental biomarkers could be good predictors of maternal complications at the onset of preeclampsia. Studies had evaluated PlGF as a useful parameter to identify those patients at higher risk of adverse outcomes.

What does this study add?

  • According to our results, the predictive role of a low PlGF level in very early PE would be limited as most patients had low concentrations at onset.
