Substance Abuse and Pregnancy: A Comprehensive Bibliography.
Krulewitch, Cara J.; Herman, Allen A.
This bibliography, containing over 1,000 entries from the period 1968 to June, 1991, was compiled to assist in the development of a report to Congress on the impact (both maternal and fetal) of substance abuse on pregnancy. Topics include pregnancy outcome, child health issues, legal and political issues, epidemiological aspects of substance abuse and pregnancy, the pharmacology of substance abuse in relation to pregnancy, methods of diagnosis, and related topics. Abused substances include alcohol, caffeine, prescribed and illegal drugs. The bibliography was compiled from sources including National Library of Medicine searches (e.g., Medline, Popline), published and unpublished documents, research, law, general medicine and nursing journals, public health journals, pharmacology journals, biochemical journals, and newspaper articles. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically and each entry is categorized by subject matter. Category definitions are included, as is information about the drugs discussed, the type of study, and (if the entry was research-related) the sample size. (Author/MSF)
