KOL-Index: 53 Premarketing studies typically exclude pregnant women and children, although new regulations have promoted their inclusion in clinical trials. Thus, usage of medicines off‐label and off‐evidence in these vulnerable populations remains common, and pharmacoepidemiology has an important role in supplying critical missing evidence about the beneficial and harmful effects of drugs in these ...

KOL-Index: 50 OBJECTIVE: To assess whether maternal calcium channel blocker exposure during late pregnancy is independently associated with neonatal seizures after carefully controlling for confounding factors. METHODS: Data were derived from the Medicaid Analytic eXtract for the years 2000-2007 and included 2,529,636 completed pregnancies. We compared the risk of neonatal seizures among neonates who were ...

KOL-Index: 46 OBJECTIVE: There is inconsistent evidence that zidovudine use during pregnancy increases overall, cardiac, and male genital malformations. DESIGN: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of zidovudine use and malformations and, using Bayesian methods, combined it with data from a cohort study of mother-infant pairs in the nationwide Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX). METHODS: Using ...

KOL-Index: 41 PURPOSE: Incidence rate (IR) estimates for peptic ulcer disease (PUD) vary widely among studies. We conducted a systematic review to quantify and examine the discrepancies. METHODS: Of 4780 articles identified from PubMed and EMBASE databases, 31 published in the last three decades that had reported IRs of PUD in the general population were included. Random effects meta-analysis and ...

KOL-Index: 37 OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on the risks of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia. METHOD: The authors analyzed data from 5,731 women with nonmalformed infants and no underlying hypertension who participated in the Slone Epidemiology Center Birth Defects Study from 1998 to 2007. ...

KOL-Index: 36 OBJECTIVE: To examine the risk of congenital malformations associated with exposure to oral fluconazole at commonly used doses in the first trimester of pregnancy for the treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis. DESIGN: Population based cohort study. SETTING: A cohort of pregnancies publicly insured in the United States, with data from the nationwide Medicaid Analytic eXtract 2000-14. ...

KOL-Index: 36 Importance: Concerns exist that use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) in adults, but evidence in children and adolescents is limited. In the absence of a randomized clinical trial, evidence must be generated using real-world data. Objective: To evaluate the safety of SSRI use in children and adolescents with respect to ...

KOL-Index: 34 PURPOSE: To describe methods reported in the literature to estimate the beginning or duration of pregnancy in automated health care data, and to present results of validation exercises where available. METHODS: Papers reporting methods for determining the beginning or duration of pregnancy were identified based on Pubmed searches, by consulting investigators with expertise in the field and ...

KOL-Index: 33 AIM: To compare the prevalence and trends of antipsychotic drug use during pregnancy between countries across four continents. METHODS: Individually linked health data in Denmark (2000-2012), Finland (2005-2014), Iceland (2004-2017), Norway (2005-2015), Sweden (2006-2015), Germany (2006-2015), Australia (New South Wales, 2004-2012), Hong Kong (2001-2015), UK (2006-2016), and the US ...

KOL-Index: 32 OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between first-trimester angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor exposure and the risk of overall major congenital, cardiac, and central nervous system malformations. METHODS: We used a cohort of completed pregnancies linked to liveborn neonates derived from Medicaid claims from 2000 to 2010. We examined the risk of malformations associated with ...
