BACKGROUND: This study was undertaken to examine the association between maternal oseltamivir treatment for influenza and infant outcomes during the 2009 HINI influenza pandemic. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study using a population-based maternal newborn database including women who gave birth to a singleton infant in the Canadian province of Ontario between November 2009 and April 2010. Risks of small for gestational age (SGA, 10 (th) percentile and 3 (rd) percentile), preterm birth (<37 weeks of gestation), very preterm birth (<32 weeks of gestation), and five-minute Apgar score<7 associated with maternal exposure to oseltamivir were analyzed by multivariable regression. RESULTS: A total of 55,355 women with a singleton birth were included in this study. Among them, 1,237(2.2%) women received oseltamivir for treatment or prevention of influenza during pregnancy. Women who took oseltamivir during pregnancy were less likely to have a SGA infant based on the 10 (th) percentile for growth (aRR 0.77; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.60-0.98). No association between maternal use of oseltamivir with SGA on 3 (rd) percentile , preterm birth, very preterm birth and low Apgar score was observed. CONCLUSION: There is no evidence of an association between maternal use of oseltamivir for influenza and early birth, low Apgar at birth, and poor fetal growth.
