Fluoroquinolones are avoided during pregnancy due to developmental toxicity in animals. The aim of this study was to assess the fetal risk after intrauterine fluoroquinolone exposure. We performed an observational study of a prospectively ascertained cohort of pregnant women exposed to a fluoroquinolone during the first trimester. Pregnancy outcomes were(More)
AIMS Angiotensin-II receptor 1 antagonists (AT₁-antagonists) may cause severe and even lethal fetopathy in late pregnancy. However, exposure still occurs in spite of warnings in package leaflets. This study aimed to assess the risk of fetopathy, the sensitive time window, and possible new symptoms in prospective as well as retrospective cases with(More)
Pregnancy-associated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a rare event. Experience regarding fetal effects of maternal treatment during pregnancy is limited. Cardiotoxicity is a known adverse effect of some antineoplastic agents especially of doxorubicin. We report a case of pregnancy-associated DLBCL, which was treated between gestational week 26 and(More)
The aim of this observational cohort study was to specify the risk of the vitamin K antagonist (VKA) phenprocoumon during first trimester of pregnancy, in particular to estimate the risk of birth defects and spontaneous fetal loss. Four hundred eight pregnancies with phenprocoumon exposure were compared to 1,642 pregnancies neither exposed to VKA nor to(More)
Published experience on first trimester exposure to methyldopa is still limited, although it is recommended as first-line treatment for hypertensive disorders in pregnancy in most countries. The primary aim of this prospective observational cohort study was to analyze the rate of major birth defects and spontaneous abortions in women with methyldopa therapy(More)
PURPOSE The results of observational cohort studies on drug effects on pregnancy outcome may depend among others on suitable comparison cohorts. The aim of this investigation was to compare two distinct definitions of maternal exposure status for comparison cohorts. METHODS We performed an observational cohort study of prospectively ascertained pregnant(More)
