  1. Quantitative analysis of associations between birth defects and suspected human teratogens.

    Article - En anglais

    Case series of infants with certain birth defect patterns and putative teratogenic exposures should be interpreted with caution since the presence of birth defects and the exposure among the same infants could be entirely due to chance.

    In the absence of other epidemiologic data, the plausibility for a causal association is strengthened by 1) rarity of the defect pattern, 2) rarity of the exposure in the population, 2) small source population, 4) short time period for the study, and 5) biologic plausibility for the association.
