The incidence of pre-eclampsia is high in women with chronic kidney disease and hypertension and the diagnosis is particularly challenging. Bramham et al.

Their findings of the utility of a single biomarker for diagnosis in this high-risk group is a major advance that has significant implications and holds promise for the future.
