This is a Euroscicon Small Conference, an outline of the day can be found at
Successful biomarker profiling in pregnant or prenatal women could not only help predict the pregnancy risk to mothers, but also survival rate of the unborn child and any possible future complications. There is a wide range of possibility for using biomarkers in pregnancy and prenatal testing. For example, research is currently being undertaken to identify biomarkers for
Identifying: ectopic pregnancy, potential rejection of pregnancy by the mother, possible cardiovascular issues,maternal autoimmune development and hypertensive disorders
Assessing: pregnancy outcome
Revealing: maternal alcohol consumption and maternal tobacco use
Avoiding: reducing multiple pregnancy
to highlight just a few. This event aims to focus on the current research in this area and discuss the way forward in using biomarkers as a predictive and diagnostic tool to improve pregnancy outcome internationally.
Meeting Chair: Professor Gordon C S Smith, Professor & Head of Department, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Cambridge University
Who Should Attend:
Biotech and Pharma Industry Managers: CEOs, Chief Scientists, Group Heads, Senior and Junior Scientists, researchers in the field of biomarkers or pregnancy
