  • outcomes
  • The analysis for the combined effect of maternal age and reproductive history on fetal death was limited to reproductive outcomes between 1988 and 1992. (acpjc.org)

  • Strong evidence also exists for other negative outcomes from pesticide exposure including neurological problems, birth defects, fetal death, and neurodevelopmental disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • abortion
  • In an accompanying Commentary (p 1526), Kenneth Lyons Jones from the University of California San Diego, USA, concludes: "Because of the substantial barriers associated with the study of spontaneous abortion or fetal death, it is hard to imagine a feasible prospective study design that would be superior to that by Andersen and colleagues in addressing the risk associated with maternal fever.
