Description

Today, blanket exclusion of pregnant women from research participation is not endorsed; however, a tendency still remains to exclude pregnant women from participating in research. This exclusion results in insufficient data to guide clinical practice for pregnant women, and hence adds risks to pregnant women and fetuses (Lyerly et al. 2007, 2008, 2009; Baylis 2010; Goldkind et al. 2010).
