Abstract

Introduction: this essay presents some research fields in which (from a preventative perspective) advanced, qualified and appropriate research must be carried out and interventions made for clarifying doubts or gaps concerning preeclampsia to reduce its impact on our target population. Facts: inconsistencies in the available information arise in some areas concerning preeclampsia incidence, associated risk-factors, short- and long-term consequences in preeclampsia patients or their siblings, pregnant females' perception of preeclampsia and the efficacy of many proposed population prevention measures. Conclusions: such deficiencies can be more efficiently resolved by linking pathophysiological knowledge of preeclampsia with research and intervention strategies in epidemiology and public health.
