This book is the combination of the literature on maternal drug use and birth defects with a set of new data on most types of drugs.
In this book, for each group of drugs the relevant scientific literature on drug teratogenicity is presented, with consideration of possible sources of error and also what the findings may mean from a practical point of view. The book also adds data from the Swedish health registers for 1996-2013 based on more than 1.7 million early-pregnancy midwife interviews.
Maternal Drug Use and Infant Congenital Malformations will find an engaged audience among people working within the field, and will be of interest to healthcare providers, especially obstetricians and other clinicians who treat women of childbearing age.
