The PARROT study is a randomised control trial which will be a diagnostic aid in the management of pre-eclampsia.

What is PARROT?

PARROT is a interventional study which involves a randomised control element. Our researchers are working towards a better understanding of placental growth factor (PIGF), with a view to reducing maternal illness.

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.
