Effects of Drugs on the Fetus and Nursing Infant: A Handbook for Health Care Professionals

by J. M. Friedman, Janine E. Polifka

Publisher: The Johns Hopkins University Press
Publication Date: Monday, January 15, 1996
Number of Pages: 672
ISBN: 0801853451


Book Summary:

"A pregnant woman should not take any drug unless it is necessary for her own health or that of her fetus," note J. M. Friedman and Janine Polifka. "Counseling a pregnant woman about possible effects of an environmental or drug exposure on her developing embryo or fetus is an important component of her medical care."

Here, from the authors of the comprehensive catalog of the TERIS database--Teratogenic Effects of Drugs: A Resource for Clinicians--is a concise guide for physicians and other health care practitioners to the potential teratogenic risks of the 250 most commonly used prescription, over-the-counter, and recreational drugs. The Effects of Drugs on the Fetus and Nursing Infant presents agent summaries adapted from the TERIS database, including data on teratogenicity, transplacental carcinogenosis, embyronic or fetal death, and fetal and perinatal pharmacologic effects of drugs. The authors also discuss the effects that maternal use of such drugs during lactation may have on the nursing infant.

"These careful and meticulous authors have created a top-notch teratogen reference book. It is inexpensive and convenient to transport and use and will be popular with physicians, clinical geneticists, and genetics counselors. I highly recommend this book." -- David D. Weaver, M.D., Indiana University Medical Center
