Pregnancy

Developing and refining methods to assess medical product utilization, safety, and effectiveness during pregnancy is a focus of FDA’s Sentinel System. The Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM) includes a Mother-Infant Linkage (MIL) table that enables routine evaluation of the effects of medical product exposures during pregnancy on infant outcomes. Descriptions of efforts led by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research are shown below. Please visit the links to learn more about each area of activity.
