1Day of onset of proteinuria: Occurrence of proteinuria on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3," wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.

2Day of peak proteinuria: Occurrence of maximum proteinuria on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 +3," wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.

3Day of nadir platelet count: Occurrence of lowest platelet level on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3,...." wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.

4 X2 = 28.2, p < 0.005.
