– Professor Jane Salmon, what does the acronym PROMISSE stand for?
– PROMISSE stands for Predictors of Pregnancy Outcome: Biomarkers in Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus study. PROMISSE is the largest multicenter, multiethnic, and multiracial study to prospectively assess the frequency of adverse pregnancy outcomes and clinical and laboratory variables (including research biomarkers) that predict them, in women with or without high titer antiphospholipid antibodies (APL) and inactive SLE or mild or moderate SLE activity at conception. We enrolled over 700 patients from 2003 to 2014.
