    Hi have an interest in Purine Autism and have
    emailed a few ideas to espa with no feedback.
    I am interested in knowing if urates are
    a problem in eclampsia/pre-eclampsia.
    I have suggested that mothers be are tested
    urates so that remedial treatment can be given.
    Also I would be intersted how many mothers
    of such children have developed gouty
    arthritis in later life. Regards Ivan.
