Podcast 129: Non-aspirin NSAIDs are associated, as a class, with spontaneous abortion in a Quebec study

(2 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)

Last week the Canadian Medical Association Journal published an analysis of data from the Quebec Pregnancy Registry showing that the use of any non-aspirin NSAID during pregnancy was associated with an increased risk for spontaneous abortion before the 20th week of gestation. There was no apparent dose-response effect.

We discuss the research with the paper’s senior author, Dr. Anick Berard of the University of Montreal.
