First, to study tobacco exposure among pregnant Finnish women in 1986 and 1990.
Second, to study the objectively measured exposure in different socioeconomic classes and in different geographical regions.
Third, to assess the value of serum thiocyanate concentrations in estimating fetal tobacco exposure.
Tobacco exposure was measured from maternal and umbilical serum samples by measuring the concentration of nicotine metabolite, cotinine.
In addition, the concentrations of thiocyanate were measured from umbilical serum samples.
The occupations of the mothers were obtained from the Finnish Birth Registry, and the area of residence from laboratory records.
