Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Each pregnant woman takes an average of four or five different drugs during her pregnancy and an undetermined number of other agents. What role drugs may play in the overall problem of fetal wastage is difficult to estimate; this concern raises the question of a proper risk/benefit ratio for both mother and fetus in administering any drug to the pregnant woman. Maternal indications for drug administration may outweigh the fetal risk.
