  1. Fulltext. The effects of intrauterine cocaine exposure in newborns.

    Article - En anglais



    We sought to determine the effects of intrauterine cocaine exposure in newborns, in an inner-city population in which cocaine use during pregnancy was common.


    During a 1-year period, 12.8% (361 of 2810) of all live singleton infants at Harlem Hospital in New York were identified as cocaine exposed, either by universal urine toxicology screening or by maternal history.

    Cocaine-exposed infants were compared with a control group of 387 infants not known to be exposed to cocaine or other illicit drugs.
