  1. Ectopic pregnancy and occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence of ectopic pregnancy has risen substantially during the past two decades, but the aetiology of a third of cases remains unknown.

    We have used data from a survey of nurses in Paris, France, to examine the relation between ectopic pregnancy and various occupational exposures.

    We studied two groups of women-operating-theatre staff and nurses from other departments.

    The women were asked about outcomes of all pregnancies and occupational exposure to anaesthetic gases, formol, ionising radiation, and antineoplastic drugs during the first trimester of pregnancy.

    Of 734 pregnancies reported, 11 (2%) had been ectopic.
