Objective: To investigate the potential value of maternal serum concentration of soluble endoglin (sEng) at 30-33 weeks' gestation in the prediction of preeclampsia (PE) developing at or after 34 weeks. Methods: Serum sEng was measured at 11-13 and at 30-33 weeks' gestation in a case-control study of 50 cases that developed PE at or after 34 weeks and 250 unaffected controls. Regression analysis was used to determine which of the factors amongst the maternal characteristics were significant predictors of first- and third-trimester log(10) sEng in the control group. The measured values of sEng were converted into multiples of the unaffected median (MoM) and the MoM values in the PE and controls were compared. Results: The median sEng MoM at 30-33 weeks was significantly higher in the PE group (1.39, IQR 0.94-2.18) than in the controls (0.95, IQR 0.77-1.19), but at 11-13 weeks there was no significant difference between the groups. In screening by a combination of maternal characteristics and third-trimester sEng, the detection rates of intermediate- and late-PE, at a false-positive rate of 10%, were 64.3 and 50.0%, respectively. Conclusion: Screening by maternal characteristics and sEng at 30-33 weeks could identify most pregnancies that will subsequently develop PE.
