pre-eclampsia is a syndrome with high maternal and fetal mortality. The pathophysiology remains unknown. Prediction, diagnosis and management of the disease has allowed the identification of multiple biomarkers, some of which help to predict those at risk. Some of these biomarkers have demonstrated, even in isolation, an effi-ciency of the test that allows to incorporate them into clinical practice. The combination of these biomarkers and clinical factors may help predict pre-eclampsia risk by developing integrated clinical risk models. This chapter aims to delve into the literature related to biomarkers in pre-eclampsia and its possible clinical applications.
