Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Despite massive research efforts in recent decades, preeclampsia has remained a syndrome of hypotheses. Today, the etiology of the pathways resulting in the clinical symptoms of hypertension and proteinuria still remains obscure. Over time, a number of very promising hypotheses have been developed, but so far, not a single hypothesis has been accepted. The current hypotheses range from shallow trophoblast invasion, which is believed to result in placental hypoxia, to defects of the villous trophoblast resulting in the release of necrotic particles affecting the maternal endothelium, to a maternal failure to adapt to the stress test pregnancy. This Special Collection will summarize all hypotheses and will leave it to the readers to identify the most conclusive explanation.
To further promote submissions of high-quality manuscripts, we are now launching this Special Collection, where we will fully waive the publication fee. We hope you will submit your next manuscript.
