Advancing A Simple, Low-Cost Rapid Diagnostic Test for Urinary Adipsin: A Promising New Biomarker-Based Test for Improving Preeclampsia Screening in Low-Resource Settings

Preeclampsia (PE) remains one of the leading global causes of maternal death and disability. Under this proposal, we seek to incorporate a new, innovative design feature to our prototype that will further improve its usability by enabling midstream urine collection and thus align the test process to that of a common one-step, at-home pregnancy test. No current PE diagnostic test, including the current protein-only dipstick, allows for such a simple test process.
