Endothelial cell-specific molecule (ESM-1) is a unique biomarker of vascular endothelial activation/dysfunction in diseases. The variation of blood levels of ESM-1 may reflect endothelial dysfunction in several pathological conditions, including sepsis, cancer, dengue fever and obesity 1. Higher ESM-1 levels are also related to occurrence of pre-eclampsia in pregnancy 2-6.

Recently IQ Products’ Research and Development team published, in cooperation with the University Medical Center Groningen (The Netherlands), their findings of the ESM-1 plasma levels during uncomplicated and pre-eclamptic pregnancies in Pregnancy Hypertension.
