How does PARROT work?
In the long term, the PARROT study will use this research to influence clinical practice. Measurement of PIGF will see mothers with suspected pre-eclampsia receive appropriate care. This study will help to identify ways of making sure adverse outcomes are reduced for high-risk mothers, while those with lower risk will be managed without unnecessary hospital admissions or interventions. PARROT will, as a result, have a major impact on how the treatment of pre-eclampsia works.
INFANT researchers have already licensed the world’s first clinically useful screening test for pre-eclampsia.
