Sera Prognostics

The company was launched to commercialize a joint invention by inventors at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. The company is developing a diagnostic platform for pre-eclampsia, a pre-term pregnancy disorder in which the mother suffers from high blood pressure induced by the pregnancy. It is one of the more common dangerous pregnancy complications and was highlighted recently in the premature birth of Jim and Michelle Duggar’s 19th child (of “19 Kids and Counting” fame).
