The aim of our artical is give overwiew of prediction’s possibilities of preeclampsia. We give special attention to new markers.

Compilation of published data from scientific literature.

Recent etiology’s hypothesis of preeclampsia are based on connection between well know pathophysiology and recent biochemistry mechanism. It ways to show new markers which could be used for earlier diagnostics in future. We need to find markers existing before clinical signs.

Key words:
preeclampsia, prediction, prediction markers, oxidative stress, angiogenesis.
