Has treatment proven to be more effective than a placebo?

The data show no overall differences between the treatment and placebo in the prevention of preeclampsia or preterm birth or in reduction in neonatal morbidity.

The authors suggest that the timing of such trials be revisited and a more comprehensive and complete analysis be performed to define the role of anti-coagulants and anti-hypertensives in pregnancy, specifically in these respects.
