The care of pregnant women presents one of the paradoxes of modern medicine. Women usually require little medical intervention during an (uneventful) pregnancy. Conversely, those at high risk of damage to their own health or that of their unborn require the help of appropriate medicinal technology, including drugs. Accordingly, there are two classes of pregnant women, the larger group requires support but not much intervention, while the other needs the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic measures applied in any other branch of medicine. This book presents the current state of knowledge about drugs in pregnancy. In each chapter information is presented separately for two different aspects of the problem seeking a drug appropriate for prescription during pregnancy, and assessing the risk of a drug when exposure has already taken place. Practising clinicians who prescribe medicinal products to women who are, or who may become, pregnant, will find this volume an invaluable reference.

Cancer in pregnancy presents physicians with a serious and ethical challenge, yet the sources of concise data and guidance for the management of this disease are scarce. The Motherisk program, based at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, is dedicated to addressing this problem. Cancer in Pregnancy and Lactation: The Motherisk Guide tackles this subject by providing evidence-based information needed to address the complex issues of maternal diagnosis, management, treatment, prognosis and long-term impact on the unborn child. Based on the research by members of the international Consortium of Cancer in Pregnancy Evidence (CCoPE) this book provides physicians with the core knowledge required to make sound clinical decisions in the face of sometimes conflicting interests. Co-edited by recognized experts in the field with over 25 years' experience, this comprehensive volume is essential reading for all maternal-fetal medicine physicians, obstetricians, neonatologists, oncologists and pharmacologists.
