Título Pregnancy outcome among women exposed to pesticides through work or residence in an agricultural area
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1993, Vol.35, No.9, p.943-949. 23 ref.
Resumen This study covered 535 women enrolled in a southern California community clinic perinatal program. They were potentially exposed to pesticides and other agricultural chemicals occupationally and/or environmentally. Maternal blood samples were assayed for cholinesterase activity and exposure history was determined by concurrent interviews. These assessments were conducted on each participant approximately once each trimester. No difference between exposed and unexposed women was noted for risk of preterm birth or toxaemia. Subjects who experienced spontaneous abortion were all unexposed, and the rate of spontaneous abortion was 2.1%, less than expected. A greater incidence of low birth weight among unexposed women indicates that exposure may have had a "protective" effect.
