Metabolomic Diagnostics sponsors and attends ISSHP conference in Amsterdam October 6th through 9th.

This meeting in Amsterdam will cover all aspects of research into hypertension in pregnancy.

The theme of the ISSHP meeting of 2018 is: “Translational research in preeclampsia: Maternal and transgenerational effects”. The program covers the whole field of translational research with a multi-directional and multidisciplinary integration of basic research, patient-oriented research, and population-based research with the aim of improving the long-term health of women. Besides discussing developments of new treatments of hypertension and its complications during pregnancy, central themes are the understanding of the long-term consequences for future health for mother and child of placental disease and intrauterine deprivation as is often the case in preeclampsia and the risk of future cardiovascular disease for women suffering from hypertension and preeclampsia. Worldwide collaboration in translational research is the only way to be successful in improving the health of mother and child during and after preeclampsia.
