PET as abbreviation[edit]

Pre-eclampsia is in some books (including the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties, 8th edition) is abbbreviated as PET, pre-eclamptic toxaemia. I personally don't like the word toxemia and also in medicine PET it is most known as an abbreviation for an imaging test of nuclear medicine, and although the abbreviation PET for pre-eclampsia is not widespread, I think it should be referred to the definition in this article 84.205.241.2 (talk) 18:59, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Definition[edit]

No longer requires protein in the urine per [1]. Headache is also not prominently mentioned so not sure why the change in the first sentence? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:30, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

On the etymology of eclampsia, it just refers to a brightening or lighting up, not lightning. See Liddell & Scott's Greek-English Lexicon. Chris

Would you care to explain what you are talking about here?

Over-technical language?[edit]

"Abnormal chromosome 19 microRNA cluster (C19MC) impairs extravillus trophoblast cell invasion to the spiral arteries, causing high resistance, low blood flow, and low nutrient supply to the fetus.[16][17][18]"

Surely this is too technical for a Wikipedia article. The word "trophoblast" is not defined in the article (it means placental cell, I believe). And "extravillus"? "Spiral arteries"?

I am doing a PhD in genetics and biochemistry but I don't understand this. Could it be made less technical?
