Examples- cleft lip/palate, clubfoot, neural tubal defects, missing or malformed limbs/fingers. Also- behavorial and/ or biochemical abnormalities. Teratogenesis maybe direct- i.e ,-malformations of structures Or indirect-such as interfering with oxygen or nutrients. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 12History Thalidomide:: History Thalidomide: Thalidomide was originally developed in Germany in 1954 by the pharmaceutical company Chemie Grunenthal . Marketed in 1957 & spread to many countries in Europe, Asia, Australia, America and Africa "WONDER DRUG " for insomnia, coughs, colds, headaches & morning sickness. Thousands of pregnant women took the drug to relieve their symptoms. It was an anticonvulsive drug, but instead it made users sleepy and relaxed. It seemed a perfect example of newly fashionable tranquilisers . chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 13PowerPoint Presentation: First affected child born in \West Germany on December 25, 1956 Dr McBride in Sydney Australia published a letter in Lancet in December 1961 Rare limb and ear defects noticed in unprecedented numbers 60% of mothers gave a history of taking Contergan 10,000 affected children were born world-wide 40% of victims died before their first birthday. Thalidomide was withdrawn in Germany by the end of November 1961. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 14 1962: FDA pharmacologistFrances Oldham Kelsey receives the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service f rom President John F. Kennedy for blocking sale of thalidomide in the United States.Teratogenic mechanism : Teratogenic mechanism Thalidomide is racemic – it contains both left- and right-handed isomers in equal amounts. The (R) enantiomer is effective against morning sickness. The (S) is teratogenic and causes birth defects. The enantiomers can interconvert in vivo –that is, if a human is given pure (R)-thalidomide or (S)-thalidomide, both isomers can be found in the serum – therefore, administering only one enantiomer will not prevent the teratogenic effect in humans. Thalidomide intercalates(inserts itself) into DNA in guanine-cytosine-rich regions. Its glutarimide part, (S) thalidomide fits neatly into the major groove of DNA at purine sites Intercalation impacts upon the promoter regions of the genes controlling the development of limbs, ears, and eyes, such as IGF- Iand FGF-2. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 15PowerPoint Presentation: Thalidomide malformations: Phocomelia: It is from the Greek words phoco means “seal” and melos means “limb” to indicate that a limb is like a seal's flipper. No ears or deafness Missing or extra fingers or toes Partial or total loss of sight Improper formation of heart, kidney & other internal organs Flattening of the bridge of the nose chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 16NSAIDS:: NSAIDS: Risks of NSAID used from 30 weeks of pregnancy onwards Premature closure of the ductus arteriosus Oligohydramnios Deficiency of amniotic fluid chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 17PowerPoint Presentation: Phenytoin: F etal hydantion syndrome Craniofacial abnormalities Hypoplasia of distal phalanges Growth deficiency Mental deficiency Cleft palate Chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 18PowerPoint Presentation: Valproic acid: ↓ absorption of folic acid Neural tube defects Carbamazepine (Tegretol) Craniofacial defects Spina bifida.

Fertility problems are also more common among these daughters. Women who took DES during pregnancy have an increased risk of breast cancer. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 21LITHIUM SALTS:: LITHIUM SALTS: Ebstein's anomaly : It is a rare heart defect in which parts of the tricuspid valve are abnormal. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 22Paroxetine: : Paroxetine: chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 23 selective serotonin reuptake inhibitorIsotretinoin:: Isotretinoin : Vitamin A derivative-fetal defects chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 24PowerPoint Presentation: chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 25PowerPoint Presentation: Sulphonamides Hyperbilirubinemia Jaundice Kernicterus Primaquine G6PD deficiency chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 26PowerPoint Presentation: Warfarin : Fetal warfarin syndrome Nasal hypoplasia Hypoplasia of the extremities Developmental retardation Other: Central nervous system defects Spontaneous abortion Stillbirth Prematurity Hemorrhage Ocular defects chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 27PowerPoint Presentation: chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 28 Toco agents Tocolytic agents ↑ strength and frequency of uterine contractions Uses: Induction of labour Augmentation of labour Prevention of PPH ↓ strength and frequency of uterine contractions Uses: premature labour uterine hyper stimulationDrugs affecting uterine contractility: Drugs affecting uterine contractility Toco agents: Oxytocin Prostaglandin Ergometrine Mifepristone Misoprostol Carboprost Tocolytic agents: Magnesium Sulfate Ritodrine Terbutaline Calcium antagonists Indomethacin Atosiban (oxytocin receptor antagonist) chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 29PowerPoint Presentation: Social Drugs: Cigarette smoking A reduction in birth weight Birth defects of heart, brain & face Risk of sudden infant death syndrome(SIDS) Mis-located placenta Preterm labor Miscarriages Uterine infections spontaneous abortions chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 30PowerPoint Presentation: Alcohol: Foetal alcohol syndrome: Effects: Risk of miscarriage Inadequate growth before or after birth Facial defects A small head Mental retardation Nail dystrophy chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 31PowerPoint Presentation: Caffeine: ↓ blood flow across placenta ↓ the absorption of iron ↑ risk of anemia ↑ risk of fetal death Advice: limit coffee to 3cups/day Illicit drugs: Cocaine and opioids Neonatal abstinence syndrome Inadequate growth of fetus Premature birth defects Reducing blood flow to the fetus (cocaine ) Miscarriage chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 32Drug Passage into Breast Milk: Drug Passage into Breast Milk Diffusion : the movement of the drug from a high concentration area (blood) to a low concentration area (breast milk). Active transport : the movement of the drug from blood with a low concentration to breast milk with a high concentration. This mechanism concentrates the drug in the breast milk. After diffusion or active transport, drugs pass through spaces between alveolar cells into the milk chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 33Drug transfer into breast milk: Drug transfer into breast milk Ionization of the drug - Drugs that are not protein bound and nonionized are more likely to be transferred into breast milk. Molecular weight of the drug - Lower molecular weight drugs are more likely to be transferred to the breast milk than higher molecular weight drugs. Solubility of the drug in lipids and waters - Lipid soluble drugs pass more freely into breast milk than water soluble drugs. The pH of the plasma and the milk - Weakly alkaline drugs have higher breast milk levels than weak acids. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 34Drug Concentration in Breast Milk: Drug Concentration in Breast Milk Lower pH than serum Varying degrees of fat concentrations Foremilk Hind milk Milk/Plasma ratio chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 35Calculating Drug Exposure: Calculating Drug Exposure The infant's dose ( D infant ) is calculated by Milk consumption – 150 ml/kg/d Relative infant dose - < 10% better Infant dose/maternal dose using mg/kg/d chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 36 D infant (mg/kg/day) = C maternal (mg/L) x M/P AUC x V infant (L/kg/day)Neonatal Factors:: Neonatal Factors: Volume of milk consumed Higher gastric pH Differences in GI flora GI transit time Higher concentrations of free drug Higher percentage of body water Lower rates of metabolism and excretion chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 37Relatively safe drugs in nursing mothers: Relatively safe drugs in nursing mothers CATEGORY EXAMPLES Antimicrobials Pencillin,ampicillin,kanamycin,amoxycillin,cefadroxil,cefotoxime,cephalexin,carbenicillinoxacillin Analgesics Paracetamol ,Morphine, Pentazocine Anti hypertensives β - blockers , Ca 2+ channel blockers Antimalarials Quinine,chlorquine Anti tubercular drugs Rifampin,ethambutol,pyrazinamide Bronchodilators Theophylline,salbutamol Antiepileptics Phenobarbitone , diphenylhydantoin,valproic acid,carbamazepine Diuretics Chlorthiazide,furosemide,spironolactone Hypoglycemics Insulins,tolbutamide,isoniazid chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 38Drugs to be avoided in during lactation:: Drugs to be avoided in during lactation: Drug Effects Amiodarone Neonatal hypothyroidism Barbiturates Drowsiness Benzodiazepines Lethargy Carbimazole Hypothyroidism Contraceptives Diminish milk supply, ↓ nitrogen & protein content Cytotoxic drugs Netropenia, immune suppression Aspirin Reye’s syndrome Ephedrine Irritability Tetracyclines Tooth discoloration chloramphenicol Gray baby syndrome chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 39Drugs absolutely contraindicated in nursing mothers:: Drugs absolutely contraindicated in nursing mothers: Anti cancer drugs Radiopharmaceuticals Ergot & its derivatives (methysergide ) Lithium Chloramphenicol Phenyl butazone Atropine Thiouracil Iodide Mercurials Sulphonamides chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 40PowerPoint Presentation: Drugs which suppress /inhibit lactation Bromocriptine Bendroflumethazide Estradiol Oral contraceptives Levodopa Trazodone Drugs which are hazardous to the infant Large doses of Alcohol Caffeine Theophylline chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 41 Considerations in Breastfeeding: Considerations in Breastfeeding Withhold or delay therapy if possible Use a drug with poor penetration into milk Use an alternate route of administration Avoid nursing at peak drug concentrations Give drug before infants longest sleep Pump and dump milk Discontinue breastfeeding chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 42Conclusion:: Conclusion: Completely avoid alcoholic beverages in pregnancy & lactation. Cut down or eliminate food and drinks which contain caffeine such as coffee, tea, colas and other soft drinks, cocoa and chocolate. Stop smoking or cut down your smoking when pregnant. Avoid smokers and smoking areas whenever possible. Check with your physician for his/her recommendations before using drugs. The responsibility of all clinicians including pharmacists to counsel the patients with complete & current information on the risks & benefits of using drugs during pregnancy & lactation. chalapathi institute of pharmaceutical sciences 43REFERENCES:: REFERENCES: Drug use in pregnancy; a point to ponder! - http://www.ijpsonline.com/ Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics R.S.Sathoskar , S.D .Bhandarkar, Nirmala N.Rege KD Tripathi.
