Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Breaking Research That Could Improve Treatment of Pregnancy Complications Published in AACC’s The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine

This research could help lower the high U.S. maternal death rate by enabling more precise identification of pregnant women at risk for thrombosis-related complications such as preeclampsia.
