Summary:
Researchers at the University of Florida, Gainesville, have found no consistent pattern of abnormalities in cocaine-exposed children, evidence that may refute the long-held belief that these children often suffer major birth defects.

Researchers at the University of Florida, Gainesville, have found no consistent pattern of abnormalities in cocaine-exposed children, evidence that may refute the long-held belief that these children often suffer major birth defects. Cocaine-exposed infants were no more likely than those not exposed to cocaine in utero to have major birth defects. The research is part of a long-term study of crack and cocaine users and their offspring, designed to assess the physical and developmental effects of prenatal cocaine exposure.The study was presented at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in New Orleans, May 1-5. For interviews during the meeting, contact the press room at (504) 670-8502 or 670-8508.Researchers’ Institutional Contact: Melanie Fridl Ross (353) 392-2621
