Summary Since the thalidomide scandal in the 1960's use of drugs in pregnancy has often been associated with great uncertainty, it can affect both the mother and the fetus. However, the concern may mistakenly lead to nonharmful drugs being attributed teratogenic effects. The drug use during pregnancy and the safety of the most commonly used drugs are in the following being discussed. Furthermore, a practical guide to risk assessment and considerations when initiating a drug treatment is presented.
ConclusionsWomen with chronic hypertension have increased serum endothelin in the first trimester of pregnancy and those who develop superimposed preeclampsia have higher levels of VCAM. None of the inflammatory mediators performed well in the first trimester in the prediction of preeclampsia.
AbstractWe read with great interest the article byhttps://obgyn.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/action/doSearch?ContribAuthorStored=Sauvegrain,+PriscilleSauvegrain et al. entitled “Understanding high rates of stillbirth and neonatal death in a disadvantaged, high ‐migrant district in France: a perinatal audit”.1 This well ‐designed study confirmed again that maternal overweight/obesity increases perinatal mortality. We would like to address some points that merit further attention. The intrauterine environment can affect the long‐term health of the offspring has been widely accepted.
