Pre-eclampsia, in pregnancy, can be life-threatening. Magnesium sulphate can be used to manage the seizures it causes, however, availability is limited in low and middle-income countries. In collaboration with King’s College London, we are comparing data from a number of earlier studies of the mineral’s use across 33 countries. Modelling the data, we can pinpoint those at highest risk and in greatest need, enabling countries with scarcer supplies to save more lives.
