Directly from France: Preeclampsia Linked to Increased Risk for Young-Onset Dementia

Individuals with preeclampsia have an increased risk for young-onset dementia, according to a research letter published online May 30 in JAMA Network Open.

Valérie Olié, Ph.D., from Santé Publique in Saint-Maurice, France, and colleagues obtained data from the nationwide prospective Conception study, which included all deliveries in France after 22 weeks of gestation between Jan. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2018. Individuals aged 30 years or older without a history of dementia were identified and followed from delivery to Dec. 31, 2021; the analyses included 1,966,323 individuals, <1 percent of whom developed dementia.
