New pregnancy exposure website.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office on Women's Health has updated its web-based listing of pregnancy exposure registries. These registries are prospective, observational studies that collect information on women who take medication during pregnancy. They provide important information on the effects of drug exposure on fetal development.

The Office on Women's Health's pregnancy exposure registry site provides links to 32 registries for specific medical products and conditions, including HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, and cancer. The website also lists all drugs or vaccines used in a specific disease registry. To access the list and get more information, see: registries.default.htm.
