Study Description

The Prediction and Prevention of Preeclampsia (PREDO) is a prospective birth cohort study of Finnish women who were pregnant between 2005 and 2010 and their children. The PREDO study cohort was set up to identify novel risk factors and biomarkers in pregnant women associated with the development of preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Two groups of pregnant women were enrolled during the first trimester of their pregnancy: first, pregnant women with a known clinical risk factor status for preeclampsia and IUGR (N=1079; 969 of these women had at least one and 110 had none of the known risk factors for preeclampsia and IUGR), and second, pregnant women who volunteered to participate regardless of their risk factor status for preeclampsia and IUGR (N=3698). Both samples were monitored during pregnancy with four clinical visits and bi-weekly self-reports. The post-delivery follow-up has taken place at approximately 2 weeks, 6 months, and 3.5 years after the delivery. The most recent follow-up started in 2016 and is ongoing. In the high-risk sample, cord blood samples were collected and genome-wide genotyping has been conducted with Illumina OmniExpressExome 1.2 and genome-wide methylation status has been analysed with Illumina 450k HM array.
