  1. Fulltext. Black-white differences in serum cotinine levels among pregnant women and subsequent effects on infant birthweight.

    Article - En anglais



    Higher levels of serum cotinine (a metabolite of nicotine) have been found in Black smokers than in White smokers even after self-reported cigarette dose was controlled.

    It is unknown whether higher cotinine levels in Black pregnant smokers may increase the risk of delivering an infant of reduced birth-weight.


    We analyzed serum cotinine levels of 374 Black and 829 White women who smoked during pregnancy and who delivered between April 1964 and April 1967.
