Effects of acetaminophen on male babies during pregnancy

Some new information that crossed my desk today via this study.

My initial thoughts…

  • Results were obtained in a mouse xenograft model for obvious reasons; results in human pregnancy may vary
  • One day exposure didn’t have any effect. One week exposure was significant. Therefore, I don’t think this should affect sporadic acute treatment too much
  • It’s good information to supply patients so they may adjust their use accordingly
