  1. Fulltext. Timing and patterns of exposures during pregnancy and their implications for study methods.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Patterns of exposure variability across pregnancy were examined for medical, lifestyle, residential, and occupational exposures in a population-based sample of 357 livebirths from 10 rural California counties.

    A new measure of variability, the ratio of overall prevalence to time-window-specific prevalence, is introduced.

    The higher the overall : time window (OTW) ratio, the greater the potential for misclassification when using anytime-during-pregnancy prevalence for an agent that exerts its effect in a smaller time window.

    Exposures to cigarettes, marijuana, saunas/hot tubs, factors related to location of residence, and some workplace substances tended to be of longer duration.

    Intertrimester concordance was high (kappa's>0.8) for smoking, residential proximity to crops, and use of video display terminals ; moderately high (kappa's between 0.4 and 0.8) for many occupational exposures ; and low (kappa's<0.4) for illnesses, which tended to be of short duration.

    The lowest OTW ratios were for smoking and some residential exposures (1.1-1.3), while OTW ratios were much higher for paint applications, influenza, vaginal infections, and ultrasound (reaching, e.g., 4-6).

    Use of anytime-during-pregnancy exposure indices can bias measures of association between risk factors and adverse pregnancy outcomes, particularly if the OTW ratio is high.

    Misclassification bias occurs if there is a vulnerable time window during which the exposure exerts its effect.

    The misclas...
