October 21, 2014

Prevalence of congenital defects, prematurity and low birth weight in infants of mothers treated with omalizumab during pregnancy were comparable with the general population with asthma, according to recent study results.

“Asthma affected 8.4% to 8.8% of pregnant women in the United States between 2000 and 2003,” study researchers wrote. “Current guidelines recommend that the goal of treatment for all women, pregnant or not, is to provide optimal therapy to maintain disease control while ensuring the safety of the mother and fetus.”
