Abstract

The majority of pregnant women take prescription drugs during their pregnancy. Given the multitude of physiologic changes incumbent in pregnancy, accurate clinical trial data on drugs in pregnancy are crucial. This report summarizes the 264 registered clinical trials in the past two years. With many of these drug trials being pharmacokinetic and placebo-controlled studies, therapeutic drug trials are becoming more common.
