1 this. We'll make it -- thank you. 2 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 9.) 3 EXAMINATION BY MR. GIBLIN: 4 Q. Again, good morning, Doctor. 5 A. Good morning. 6 Q. Would you please state your name for the 7 r co d? 16 00 10 e r : : 8 A. Robert James Carpenter, Jr. 9 Q. I assume you've given a deposition before, 10 Doctor? 11 A. Yes, sir, I have. 12 Q. You know the purposes of what we're doing 13 here today? 14 A. In general, yes. 15 Q. If at any time you'd like to take a break, 16 just let me know; that's no problem. If I ask you a 17 question that doesn't make sense or isn't clear, 18 which I'm likely to do, let me know before you try 19 to answer. Okay? Ln ~ -J 20 A. I shall. ~ m 21 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 1.) ~ m co 00 22 Q. And I'll do my best to try to clean it 23 up. 24 First off, I have -- we've marked a couple 25 things here initially that we were provided. I'll 10:16:30 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 5

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 show you what's been marked as Exhibit 1, and I'll just ask you: Does that appear to be a true and correct copy of your report in this case? A. Yes. Q. Okay. Again, we have marked as Exhibit 2 a disclosure which indicates that there were no documents upon which you've relied in forming your opinions. Is that correct? (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 2.) A. That's correct. 11 Q. Exhibit 3 is a list that you provided of 10:17:00 12 cases since 1994 where you've testified by 13 deposition or at trial. Does that appear to be a 14 complete copy of the list? 15 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 3.) 16 A. I will accept this as being true. I would 17 have to compare it with the list that I gave them 18 last week. I will assume that it is, in fact, true 19 and correct. 20 Q. Also at this time I would like to attach 21 Exhibit 9, which is the Amended Deposition Notice, 22 showing that this deposition was to begin at 10:00 10:17:30 23 a.m. 24 Doctor, when were you first contacted 25 this case? re ardin Ln r J g g N m J 6 m co KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS ~ EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 attorneys present, but I cannot recall who they may 2 have been. 3 Q. Okay. Where did the meeting take place, 4 Doctor? 5 A. Actually, it was at my home. I believe 6 that the 24th was a holiday or something like that, 7 and so I was at home working and told them that I 8 would be glad to meet them that particular day and 9 we met at my home, since the building where I worked 10:21:00 10 had no air conditioning in it. 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 Q. Okay. Do you know how Mr. Hlavinka got our n me? y a A. Yes, I do. I have been up against Mr. Hlavinka in several medical malpractice cases over the course of several years, and I will assume that that is how he, one, knew about me and then, two, decided to talk to me. Q. You say -- 10:21:30 A. Anything beyond that I don't know. Q. Okay. You say you've been up against him. From what standpoint? A. I was on the plaintiff side in several Ln ~ ~ cases in which he was on the defense side. m ~ 24 Q. Those cases that were tried here in Harris ~ ~ 25 County? N 9 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

-A 1 A. Well, I told him -- and then subsequently 2 several days later when there was a meeting I said 3 basically that I will serve as an expert in the 4 sense that I can tell you what I know and what I 5 don't know. I can tell you associations and disease 6 processes and such. I am certainly not a -- either 7 pharmacologist or a biochemist, and so from that 8 standpoint will not be able to help you much. But 10:19:30 9 the major issue is the specific issues of smoking, 10 One thing I was very clear both with him and then in 11 a meeting several days later with a number of 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 different attorneys for different firms, was that I was not going to sit before you or before any court and jury and say that tobacco is clean, has no potential injurious effects. That I was not and could not do, because I don't believe that. And that was understood from the very beginning. 10:20:00 Q. Okay. When was the first meeting? A The first meetin was on Januar 24th of Ln ~ . g y -i ~ this ar m ye . ~ Q. Who attended that meeting, Doctor? m %D 1~ A. I can -- I know that -- let's see. Mr. Curtis. I have cards of various people. 10:20:30 Mr. Curtis was there, I know Mr. Hlavinka was 25 there. Beyond that there were, I think, two women 23 24 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 8

1 A. I may not be able to give you an exact 2 date; it would be somewhere prior to January 22nd of 3 this year. I received a phone call from 4 Mr. Hlavinka. We discussed the case in minimal 5 rudimentary outline, and then -- in fact, it may be 6 as early as January 22, because I have a phone 10:18:00 7 conversation of about 30 minutes noted, but it may 8 have also been prior to that. So that's the best I 9 can give you, sir. 10 Q. Okay. What did Mr. Hlavinka tell you when 11 you discussed the case? 12 A. I'm not sure that I will be able to pull 13 from memory everything, but basically that there was 14 a suit against tobacco companies by the State of 15 Texas, and I said that I knew that there was a suit 16 that was either filed or going to be fil ed, and that 10:18:30 17 there had been previous suits filed by o ther 18 states. And he asked me if I would pote ntially 19 serve as a defense expert in the area of cn 20 maternal-fetal medicine, pregnancy compl ~ ications and v N m 21 such. And that was the main aspect. I cannot ~ m ~ 22 remember all of the subcomponents of tha t. 6 23 Q. During this initial discussion did you 24 tell him that, yes, you'll serve as an e xpert for 25 the tobacco companies? 10:19:00 7 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

xi 1 are. I would like to read those, because I cannot 22 Q. Okay. And that's contained in the file 23 that's been marked as Exhibit -- under your thumb? 24 A. 4. Yes, sir. 25 Q. Okay. We'll get to those -- 2 recall all of the things that he has had out, and 3 that he may have read and so -- and I certainly 4 don't have those in my possession, so I would like 5 to read what his base information that he provided, 6 and those were subsequently sent along with the two 7 different depositions. And there was also a 10:26:00 8 pediatrician whose deposition, I believe in the 9 Florida case, was sent. And that deposition, 10 likewise, is over on the side table. 11 Q. Okay. We'll cover what's in the stacks -- 12 A. Yes. 13 Q. -- in a little bit. Did you make any 14 notes, Doctor, during the meetings? 15 A. No, I did not. I did not need to. The 16 only notes -- no. I'll try to be responsive to your 17 question. No. During the meetings I did not make 18 any notes. 19 Q. Okay. You've made some notes after 20 reviewing the various depositions. Is that correct? 21 A. Yes, I have. 10:26:30 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 13 .

1 A. Okay. 2 Q. -- in a minute. Did you yourself perform 3 any type of a literature search? 4 A. No, I did not. 5 Q. Okay. So as far as the documents that are 6 stacked over there and the documents that you have 7 now looked at, those are things that have all come 8 from the tobacco companies? 9 A. Correct. I mentioned to you just before 10:27:00 10 we started the only thing -- and it's not a 11 literature search, but this is something I have in 12 my possession and have previously read parts and 13 parcels of it, and this was a book that came 14 approximately a year and a half or so ago. And I 15 got this out, and so that's provided, if you want to 16 take a look at it. 17 Q. Okay. And that's titled "The Future of 18 Children"? 19 A. Yes. 20 Q. That is a -- is that a book that you -- 21 A. Well, it's not a book. It's actually -- 22 if you want to call it a journal, it's volume 5, 10:27:30 23 number 1, spring 1995, and it's produced by the 24 Center For The Future of Children and the David and ~ , ~ 25 Lucile Packard Foundation.

1 ROBERT JAMES CARPENTER, JR., M.D., P.A., 2 sworn by the Court Reporter, testified as follows: 3 EXAMINATION BY MR. GIBLIN: 4 Q. Good morning, Doctor. 5 MS. COLSON: I'm sorry. Before we get 6 started, I'd like to state on the record it's now 10:04:20 10:13:59 7 10:15 a.m.; Dr. Carpenter, counsel for defendants 10:14:00 10 30 14 : : 8 and the court reporter have been here since 9:00 10:15:00 9 this morning, the time that the deposition was 10 noticed to begin. We were not provided any 11 notification of the change or delay in the 12 schedule. 13 MR. BLEVINS: If you want to start off 14 that way, let the record also reflect that we have 15 attached as the next exhibit the Amended Notice of 16 Deposition that shows this deposition at 10:00. My 17 name's Bryan Blevins. I also confirmed this 18 deposition by time with Tom Stover, national 19 coordinator for these depositions. I also discussed 20 this deposition with Mr. Hlavinka during our 21 deposition of Dr. Arrington in Little Rock, Arkansas 10:15:30 22 Tuesday at 10:00, and that we have made our 23 apologies for the delay. Ln r 24 MR. GIBLIN: I had to let him do that, J r m 25 because I didn't do this. Let's go ahead and mark ~ m co 'i KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 4 ~
Page 12: ztq82d00
r. 22 A. That's correct. That has not been one of 23 my research areas, either actually doing it or 24 publishing it any time during my academic career. 25 Q. Do you consider yourself an expert in the 1 plaintiff review, it has been approximately 55 10:31:30 2 percent defense review. And then as I mentioned to 3 you before you started, I gave them this particular 4 set of documents last week, which is a complete 5 computerized listing of all depositions I've done, 6 as well as all trial testimony since I began any 7 reviews back in 1980. There is one other 8 classification within all these reviews which I call 9 "peer reviews," and it means reviews for either 10:32:00 10 hospitals alone or hospital attorneys and sometimes 11 in specific physician matters or sometimes in risk 12 management issues, to try to improve risk management 13 in the hospital, and specifically obstetrical 14 service. 15 Q. Okay. Have you written any articles, 16 Doctor, that deal with tobacco-related health 17 issues? 18 A. No, I have not. 19 Q. And I take it that would be the same for 20 any articles dealing with maternal smoking and 21 effects on the fetus or newborn? 10:32:30 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 18
Page 13: ztq82d00
1 that's the one. And so he apparently does 2 obstetrics on an ongoing basis, what I've been able 3 to gather from what I have read. 4 Q. Would you agree that Dr. Sachs enjoys a 10:29:00 5 very good reputation from a national perspective? 6 A. I know that he is well published and that 7 his name has been on various technical bulletins and 8 various other things. From that standpoint I would -. 9 say that he probably has a national reputation, 10 yes. 11 (Ms. Scanlan left the deposition.) 12 Q. Are you being paid -- 13 A. Yes, I am. 10:29:30 14 Q. -- for your time? 15 A. Yes, I am. 16 Q. How much are you being paid, Doctor? 17 A. $250 per hour for review and deposition, 18 and deposition preparation at 350 per hour. 19 Q. Okay. How about trial testimony? How 20 much will you charge for trial? 21 A. Trial, that will assume -- I have no idea ~ 22 where the trial will ultimately be. I am assuming J ~ 23 that if there is a trial it will be in Texarkana, ~ ~ 24 since that's where this case is filed. I charge ~ ~ 25 $2,500 a day for the workday. I will charge for 16 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 14: ztq82d00
1 entitled, "Low Birth Weight." 2 Q. Did you say earlier that Dr. Sachs had 3 something to do with that book? 4 A. There was an article by Dr. Sachs. I 5 think he was the third author in a chapter within 6 this book, and he was specifically talking about the 7 use of current technology to monitor pregnancies 8 including ultrasound, various types of testing and 10:28:00 9 so f orth . 10 Q. Okay. You're familiar, I take it, with 11 Dr. Sachs? 12 A. I was familiar with his name from general 13 literature, which I have read in the past. I have 14 become much more aware of him with reading the 15 depositions and such since those have been 16 received. So that would be my understanding both 17 prior to and since my involvement in this case. 18 Q. What is 19 A. He's an Dr. Sachs' medical specialty? obstetrician, gynecologist. He 20 has done a Ph.D. in epidemiology, I think, the 10:28:30 21 University of Montreal. He is a maternal-fetal 22 medicine subspecialist trained, I believe, in the Ln J F-+ 23 Harvard program. He is currently on the faculty, m 24 the general faculty, at Harvard, and he is at one of 25 the hospitals, I think Beth Israel. I believe _j m ~ 15 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 travel time, expenses, and so forth, and that would 2 be at the $250 hour per rate. 10:30:00 3 Q. Okay. The case is currently set for 4 trial, I believe, in the latter part of September. 5 A. That's what I found out within the last 6 k wee . 7 Q. Okay. And I take it you do plan on 8 testifying live at the time of trial? 9 A. If I am asked to come, I will -- if I have 10 become involved in the case, if I am asked to come, 11 I will come. 12 Q. How many hours have you spent on the case 13 so far? 14 A. There are approximately 55 hours. There's 10:30:30 15 some additional minutes and stuff. Somewhere 16 between 55 and 60, and a good bit of that has been 17 in the last 10 days, pretty much the last 10 days. 10:31:00 18 Q. You've listed a number of cases here on 19 what's been marked as Exhibit 3, Doctor. I don't 20 obviously plan on going through each one of these. 21 what would be the breakdown of your expert testimony 22 from the standpoint of plaintiff versus defendant? Ln N -i ~ 23 A. In general -- I don't know what the m ~ 24 current specific number is ri ht now -- in eneral ~ m 25 g g in the past it has been approximately 45 percent m 17 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 16: ztq82d00
1 area of tobacco-related diseases of a newborn? 2 A. I would have to say, no, I'm not. 3 Q. Do you consider yourself an expert in the 10:33:00 4 area of the maternal effects associated with a woman 5 smoking while pregnant? 6 A. Yes, I think I have a very good grasp on 7 the issues related to smoking during pregnancy and 8 specific issues related to that. I think it depends 9 on how one tries to define the word "expert." I 10 certainly cannot give you a quotation going back 20 10:33:30 11 years, 30 years, of every article published, et 12 cetera. I can't do that. I'm certainly not an 13 expert in the sense that I have done bench work as 14 we were talking about just before, measuring 15 nicotine levels, et cetera, et cetera, looking at 16 vasoconstrictive effects and things like that, I 17 have not. So that my acquisition of data over the 18 large line of time since I've been doing obstetrics, 19 for basically 20 years post residency, and then 24 10:34:00 20 years including residency, has been from both the 21 literature, meaning the journal articles, books and 22 various other treatises, plus I would say listening un J ~ 23 to lectures, which the subject could be discussed as ~ ~ 24 a component part of some presentation, but not as m N 25 primary research. Again, it's not my -- not been my 19 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 17: ztq82d00
1 research area or research areas, since I have 2 l severa . 10:34:30 3 Q. Would you agree, Doctor, that there has ~ 4 never been a disease process studied and analyzed 5 with numerous studies that have been done more 6 closely or more in volume than smoking? 7 A. I'm not sure I can give you an affirmative 8 on that. I think that it has been very well looked 9 at by many investigators in many countries. But 10 when you say there has never been a disease process, 11 I think we can talk about malaria, we can talk about 10:35:00 12 the issues of intestinal diseases, diarrhea which 13 kills a tremendous number of people across the 14 world. We can talk about a whole host of other 15 disease processes. 16 We can even probably in this decade and 17 the decade of the '80s talk about the issues of HIV, 18 and in that particular 17-year period it may be that r. 19 HIV research and the rest far exceeds any amount of 20 either, one, expenditures or, two, publication 10:35:30 21 volume of cigarettes within the area of certainly 22 obstetrics and even perhaps multiple other areas of 23 iving you a basis for why I Ln medicine But again . , , g r ~ 24 N said no . m ~ 25 as to ~ Q.

1 A. Well, actually, they were filed in Harris 2 County, because the individual who filed them, 3 specifically Rock Onstad, filed them here. They 4 were actually in Texarkana against facilities in 5 Te k 10 22 00 xar ana. : : 6 Q. What took place at the first meeting? 7 A. Oh, basically we went through some of the 8 same things we discussed before, and that's pretty 9 much it. There were a number of -- we reviewed some 10 of the issues of premature labor, talked about 11 premature ruptured membranes, talked about some 12 aspects of maternal disease. I cannot recall all of 13 the specific things that were talked about from a 14 medical perspective, but we went through a lot of 10:22:30 15 medicine. Actually, if I had to categorize it as a 16 session where I did more listening or more talking, 17 I would say I did more talking. The second 18 component of that was that I did what I considered a 19 lot of teaching/education about a number of those 20 things, not knowing the specific database that the 21 individual attorneys had. There were some specific 22 questions asked at intermittent times during the 10:23:00 23 course of those discussions about specific subsets, 24 conditions and the rest. But not necessarily as Ln ~ 25 they related to smoking, per se. It was really a ~ m J 10 ~ W KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 19: ztq82d00
1 very general and at times in-depth review of a lot 2 of different issues of maternal-fetal medicine. 3 Q. When they showed up for the meeting did 4 they bring literature or documents with them? 5 A. No, they did not. 10:23:30 6 Q. Was there a recording made -- 7 A. No, there was not. 8 Q. -- of that meeting, Doctor? 9 A. Or if there was, I am not aware of it. 10 Q. How long did the meeting last? 11 A. It was about an hour and a half. 12 Q. How did the meeting break up? What was 13 decided at the end? 14 A. People had to catch aircraft and leave 15 town. 16 Q. Well, what were the plans, I guess would 17 be a better question, when the meeting broke up? 18 A. Okay. The plans were that a number of 19 different documents would be sent, some of which are 10:24:00 20 over here on the side table, and at some later point 21 that there would be further work communication 22 involved within the case, and that's basically what Ln ~ J N 23 happened. In fact, it lay dormant for a good while, m J 24 ond the time that the Mississippi case and even be B ~ y ~ 25 then the -- what I call the national settlement, if 11 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 20: ztq82d00
1 you will, occurred. 2 Q. Okay. The documents that were sent, were 3 they specific documents you requested, or were these 4 documents that the tobacco companies decided that 5 they would send you? 10:24:30 6 A. No. There were some information -- I told _ 7 them, one, I had a general knowledge of information w 8 concerning tobacco and its potential effect within 9 pregnancy and fetuses, and that that had been 10 gathered both from articles in journals as well as 11 books and other sources over my medical career. But 12 that I certainly did not have a library of any 13 specific articles or anything like that, which I had 14 accrued and maintained. I certainly did have a 10:25:00 15 bunch of articles, but not related to that specific 16 subject set. And so there were some articles that 17 were sent and, again, those are over there on the 18 side table. 19 Later on the -- they told me at one of the Ln ~ 20 meetings, and I don't recall which one it was, that J 21 m Dr. Sachs had been deposed in the Mississippi and ,, m 22 Florida cases, and that those depositions would be ~ 23 coming. There were a number of exhibits from 24 Dr. Sachs' deposition that I requested and I said, 10:25:30 25 you know, I would like to see what his exhibits 12 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

It would have to have been prior to last 5 Wednesday, because that was when we reviewed this in 6 some detail. Other than that, I cannot give you 7 a -- I can't clarify it any more than that. 8 Q. All right. Now, you talked about the 9 meeting that you had at your home -- 10 A. Yes. 11 Q. -- with the four or five tobacco people; 12 I forgot how many. And then -- 10:37:30 13 A. Five, if I remember correctly. 14 Q. Okay. And then later some information, 15 documents, were sent to you. Correct? 16 A. Yes, sir. 17 Q. After that -- after you got the documents, 18 did you have any more face-to-face meetings with 19 anyone -- 20 A. Yes. 21 Q. -- associated with the tobacco industry? cn N ~ ~ 22 A.

1 actual time spent with that meeting -- I have three 10:38:00 2 hours and 10 minutes here, but I think the actual 3 meeting was about two hours and 10 minutes, and then 4 I spent additional time after that with various a 5 things, which I cannot remember. That was the ~ t 6 next -- that was the next meeting after the January 7 24th meeting. Then there was a meeting on July 8 16th, which -- a week ago yesterday. And that was ~~ 9 about three hours and 15 minutes, and that, I 10:38:30 10 mentioned before, this was reviewed at that 11 particular time. 12 Q. On your report, the first time you ever 13 saw a written report, was on July the 16th? 14 A. That's correct. W* 15 Q. Okay. Prior to July -- 16 A. Oh. And I need to correct something, 17 because I did not -- I had these written down on <.A 18 little slips of paper. There was also a meeting on 19 5-30-97 for an hour and 10 minutes.

1 out yesterday -- and I'll be honest and say I do not 2 remember her name -- who I found out was a physician 10:40:30 3 yesterday. And she had worked in pharmaceutical 4 research, I believe, for 15 years, doing drug 5 research. But, again, I don't remember her name. 6 Q. This was a tobacco industry employee -- 7 A. It was one of their -- 8 Q. -- that you met with? 9 A. No, it was one of their -- well, it was 10 one of their attorneys. 11 Q. Attorney for the tobacco companies? 12 A. Yes. 13 Q. Okay. 14 A. Who's also an M.D. 15 Q. Okay. What did she add to the meetings? 16 A. She was a component part of the meeting. 10:41:00 17 I'm not sure that she added to the meeting, if... 18 Q. Uh-huh. 19 A. I'll have to ask you, what do you mean by 20 added to the meeting. 21 Q. Well -- 22 A I can tell you She had -- well cn ~ . , ~ 23 specifically. She apparently had either attended N m _j ~ 24 several of the depositions; there were a number of m 25 questions that you-all had asked of other defense co 25 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 experts. A number of those questions were 2 discussed, and there were several with subcomponents 3 of those, and she had apparently written those down, 10:41:30 _., 4 and went over some of those. 5 Q. When would that have been? i 6 A. That was yesterday. _1 7 Q. Oh, yesterday? t~4 ~ 8 A. Yes. 9 Q. Okay. 10 A. Because apparently you-all have just ..~ 11 started in the last week or so the various 12 depositions. 13 Q. Uh-huh. 14 A. And you have 100 to do before the end of 15 the month? 16 Q. Uh-huh. What -- what were the questions 17 that she had written down and talked to you about 18 that we had asked earlier in the week? 10:42:00 19 A. I'm sorry; I'm not going to be able to 20 give you all of them. There were some statistical 21 questions, definitions that were asked, and they Ln 22 asked me what -- how I would respond, and I gave ~ ~ m 23 them what my definitions and understandings of ~ ~ 24 various things would be.

J i 1 Q. Do you know who prepared your report, 2 Doctor? 10:44:00 3 A. I-- no, I do not. 4 Q. Okay. 5 A. I would assume that it was one or more of 6 the attorneys. 7 Q. And the first time that you saw this 8 report was July the 16th. Is that correct? 9 A. That's correct. 10 Q. When you saw it and read it did you make 11 any changes to it? 12 A. Yes, I did. 13 Q. Okay. Did you keep a copy of the draft 14 where you made changes? 15 A. No, I did not. 16 Q. What type of changes did you have to make 17 to it? 18 A. well, there were a number of different 19 words which I thought in the context of grammar were 20 not proper, there were some statements in there 10:44:30 21 which I did not -- or at least in review I did not 22 consider to be 23 appropriate - medically -- I won't say well, I'll just use appropriate. I reasonable word. And then there were ~-- 24 think that's a 25 some other words which I changed because I thought 28 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 26: ztq82d00
._-.i 1 and read his deposition. So I -- that would be a 2 request, in a way, yes. 10:46:00 3 Q. Anything about -- after you read it, was 4 there anything about his testimony that had an 5 impact on your opinions in this case? 6 A. No. I think the proper answer would be 7 no but there needs to be a clarifying component f~:-l 8 , . The one thing within his deposition that I basically 9 disagreed with, which differs sharply from my 10 opinion in this particular matter, is that 10:46:30 11 Dr. Sachs' opinion, multiple places as stated in 12 both, I believe, the Mississippi as well as the 13 Florida case, was that if you are a smoker all 14 complications of pregnancy are basically related to 15 smoking, and I don't agree with that. 16 Q. Okay. Anything else -- 17 A. No. 10:47:00 18 Q. -- about that? You also -- 19 A. And he went through a lot of the 20 literature. They talked -- certainly in the 21 Mississippi case, they went through a tremendous 22 amount of statistics and epidemiology and things ~ ~ 23 like that. And I couldn't disagree with some of the m 24 things, because some of the things I think are J ~ 25 correct from the standpoint of perhaps definitions, w 30 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 27: ztq82d00
1 processes and the rest. It was actually a quite 2 learning episode because of the volume of 10:47:30 3 epidemiology and statistics that both the attorney 4 as well as Dr. Sachs went through. 5 Q. Okay. So the disagreement that you had 6 with Dr. Sachs was that in a number of places in the 7 deposition it's your impression that he stated that 8 all pregnancy complications, if the mother smokes, " I 9 all pregnancy complications that occur are caused by 10 the smoking? Is that what you said? ~. 11 A. Yes, in basic summary. And then one other 10:48:00 12 thing; I had previously read his - - well, what I 13 found out, because I have to admit when I first read 14 it back -- received in 1993 concer ning the ACOG 15 Technical Bulletin on smoking and women, I did not 16 know that he was one of the co-aut hors, if you will, 17 of that until the deposition. But one of the 18 statements that was made within th at and after I 19 read it, his deposition, it's one of the exhibits, 20 and I pulled it from my file. He made the statement 10:48:30 21 in there that there really had been no causality 22 found, although certainly it was considered a risk Ln 23 r J certainly it was considered to be -- to have ~ factor , m ~ 24 associations made with various problems in pregnancy ~ ~ ~ 25 with cigarettes and nicotine exposure. 31 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 2 3 4 5 ~ --• . -°, 6 ~ -.~ 7 ~ 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 to maintain your -- both your in vitro, your chemical exposure, your environmental, your oxygen, carbon dioxide, temperature, various other things in 10:53:30 the laboratory. Well, the human is a little bit more complex than that, and so I don't think there ever will be a single study that will be able to maintain. The comment has been made in several different sources that it is purely unethical to have a randomized controlled study involving nicotine exposure and nonnicotine exposure. That would be impossible to do, and it would, in fact, be 10:54:00 unethical. So causation in that circumstance has not been proven. I think that there is a strong association, and I think that there is a -- it is a risk factor for adverse outcomes. Q. All right. Let me see if I understand the definition that you're working under here, Doctor. Ln ~ Obviously with regard to adverse pregnancy outcomes ; there are a number of things that can cause that to m ~ ~ ~ happen. Is that correct? 0° 22 A. Yes. 23 Q. Okay. Would you agree with me that 10:54:30 24 smoking -- I'm not talking about being the cause of 25 the outcome -- would you agree with me that smoking 35 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 that the impact of that specific word was not 10:45:00 2 something that I would use in the context of 3 populations. Truly semantics. ~~ 4 Q. Okay. Have you been asked to be an expert 5 witness on behalf of the tobacco company in any of 6 the state cases that are pending right now? 7 A. No, I have not been. 8 Q. So right now you're -- the only case in 9 which you're an expert for the tobacco companies is 10 the State of Texas case. Is that correct? --,, 11 A. Yes, sir. 12 Q. You mentioned Dr. Sachs' deposition which, 13 again, we'll get to those stacks here shortly. But 10:45:30 14 I take it atter you reviewed those you made some 15 notes? 16 A. Yes, I did. 17 Q. Okay. 18 A. There are several pages of notes here in 19 the blue, small folder. 20 Q. Okay. Did you request a copy of 21 Dr. Sachs' deposition? Ln ~ 22 J A. They were -- I didn't necessarily request ~ m 23 it in that exact words. I -- they told me that J N 24 F+ N it -- I think one may have been done, the other one 25 is being done. I told them that I wanted to review 29 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

The meeting on 5-30, who attended that? 9 A. I'm sorry. I -- I -- there was one 10:39:30 10 meeting where there were five or six different 11 attorneys representing different firms. I know 12 Mr. Hlavinka was there, I know that Mr. Curtis was 13 there. At different times Ms. Scanlan has been 14 there, Lori Farrar, who is here today was there. 15 Carol Lindgren-Bron was there. Those are the only 16 attorney's cards I have; that's six in number. But 10:40:00 17 I don't remember which specific dates who was 18 present. Mr. Hlavinka and Mr. Curtis have been the 19 two people I think I have seen most frequently. 20 Ms. Farrar has been at several of the meetings, 21 also. 22 Q. Any of the people that you met with on the Ln ~ ~ 23 30th, do any of them have any medical training, to m ~ 24 your knowledge? m ~ 25 A. Oh. There was one young lady who I found 24 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 Q. -- or epidemiology -- okay. 2 A. I think there are other people around who 3 are much more qualified than I to be able to do 4 that. 10:57:00 5 Q. Toxicology? 6 A. No. 7 Q. Pathology? 8 A. I think it would depend upon what you were 9 talking about from the standpoint of pathology. 10 However, I do not have boards in either clinical or 11 anatomic path, and therefore I would not be able to 12 sit down and discuss all of those things in the 13 sense of -- but in certain areas I know a reasonable 14 amount of pathology. But in other areas, I know a 15 very limited amount of pathology. But I will 10:57:30 16 certainly, if I am asked a question, I will give you 17 whatever my answer is, if I know anything. But I 18 certainly could not give you a treatise on many 19 areas. 20 Q. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt you. 21 A. No, I was finished. Ln r ~ 22 Q. Okay. Would the primary focus of your r m ~ 23 interest be in the area of placental pathology? ~ N F-4 24 A. Actually, not placental so much as kidney, 25 some aspects of brain pathology in the fetus and 38 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 32: ztq82d00
1 would be a cause of an adverse pregnancy outcome? 2 Not the only cause; there may be other causes that 3 are working together. Okay? Would you agree with ~ 4 me that it's pretty well recognized that smoking can .: i .1 - ; 1 `. 5 and is in many occasions a cause -- not the only 6 cause -- but a cause of an adverse pregnancy 10:55:00 -, 7 outcome? 8 A. Yes. And I said that earlier. 9 Q. Okay. 10 A. Because a cause means that it is a risk 11 factor. One could use any number of examples, which 12 I won't do. But, yes, it is a factor in adverse 13 utcomes . o 14 Q. Okay. When did you leave Baylor? 15 A. I left Baylor June 1st, 1994. 16 Q. You're in private practice now, so to 10:55:30 17 speak? 18 A. I'll go through this -- okay. So to speak. 19 Q. So to speak? 20 A. I've always had a private practice. I'm 21 doing nothing more than I've always done, except 22 that I have no access to residents and fellows from Ln ~ ~ ~ 23 the standpoint of teaching. But other than that, m ~ 24 private practice, I've always had it, even during my r r ~ 25 multiple years on the faculty at Baylor. But in the 36 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 33: ztq82d00
1 A. Yes. 2 Q. Okay. Obviously you are an expert and you 3 consider yourself an expert in the area of 4 gynecology, obstetrics and gynecology, I guess? 5 A. No, I'd have to divide that. 6 Q. Okay. 7 A. I have had training in gynecology during 8 my residency. There are many aspects of gynecology 9 right now where if I needed to I could treat women 11:01:00 10 and treat women appropriately. There are many other I 11 aspects of gynecology, such as laparoscopy, some 12 forms of procedures involving laparoscope and others 13 that I would not attempt, because I do not consider 14 myself competent. Vaginal hysterectomy, anterior, 15 posterior repairs, I haven't done that in 20-plus 16 years. And so, yes, I have boards in it and I could 17 be examined on it and I could examine other people 18 on it in an, if you will, academic way and be ~ 19 reasonably knowledgeable. But the practice of it is 11:01:30 20 a different story. Within obstetrics, yes, I Ln ~ 21 consider myself an expert within obstetrics, and I J /-+ 22 know a tremendous amount about many different m J 23 things. N ~ 24 Q. In the area of obstetrics, what would you 25 consider to be an authoritative treatise or 11:02:00 41 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

/ ;J 3.~ rl- 1 number of things. I would not go into the nursery 2 and try to take care of a small baby. I would not 3 be qualified to do so. 4 Q. And when you say a "small baby," are we 10:59:30 5 talking about a low birth weight baby or small for 6 gestational age or -- 7 A. Any baby who ends up -- I'm sorry. Any 8 baby who ends up going to special care nurseries and 9 so forth, I don't know what the current -- I won't 10 go into those. I don't know about multiple aspects 11 of current care. Ventilator care I certainly would 12 not attempt, so -- but I know a number of things 13 about neonatology and about babies post delivery, 14 but I do not know everything. 11:00:00 15 Q. Any textbooks or treatises in the area of 16 neonatology that you feel are particularly 17 authoritative? 18 A. Avery is one of the major ones that I can Ln r 19 recall. There is a textbook, Berman is at least one ~ ~ m 20 of the authors. There are several others over the ~ ~ N 21 course of time that I have seen, but those are the W 22 only two that I can recall. I was trying to pull 23 out a name, and I can't do that. 11:00:30 24 Q. Avery would be Gordon Avery. Is that 25 correct? KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 40

S-~ 1 the number of people that die every year in our 2 country due to smoking-related diseases? 3 A. Do I have an actual number in my head? 4 Q. An idea. Do you have an impression as to 5 what that number would be? 10:36:00 6 A I think it would be considerable I think .~.; . . ~ 7 that if I had to give you a number which -- you -,, 8 know, I'm not going to try to give you a number 9 because I don't know a number. 10 Q. Uh-huh. 11 A. I think it would be considerable when we 12 consider all the aspects of smoking and its impact 13 into individual people who may or may not have other .- 14 disease processes. So I think it would be ... 15 considerable. 16 Q. Uh-huh. I'm going to show you, Doctor, 17 what's been marked as Exhibit 1; you've already 10:36:30 18 identified it as a copy of your report. Did you 19 prepare that report, Doctor? 20 A. No. I reviewed it last week, I believe 21 Wednesday of last week. This was prepared from a ~ 22 discussions that tn number of the different meetings , N _j ~ 23 had been had over the whole course of time, and I m 24 J will assume going back to that first meeting of N m ~ 25 January 24th of this year.

4.4 ,., `F 1 the issues in.the obstetrical component of this 2 case. 3 Q. Such as? 4 A. Oh. Issues related to -- let's see. Oh, 10:42:30 5 I think -- and I'm trying to reconstruct -- issues 6 related to the various disease processes that have 7 been seen in pregnancy, and then using three 8 different words; one, risk factor, two, association, 9 three, causation or causality, whether those 10:43:00 10 specific aspects had -- were considered to be risk 11 factors during pregnancy for adverse outcome. 12 Whether there were associations which have been 13 drawn, and whether causation or causality had been 14 attributed to those various things. 15 Q. Okay. 16 A. That was a -- and that was a significant 17 number of questions, if I remember correctly. 10:43:30 18 Q. Well, you're going to hear them here in a 19 little bit. 20 A. That's okay. 21 Q. What other questions did you talk about 22 yesterday? 23 A. Oh, God. There were some other 24 definitions. Sorry; I can't pull that from my 25 head.

No, sir, I have not. 18 Q. Have you had any conversations, Doctor, 11:04:30 19 with any of the other tobacco company experts in 20 this case? There's -- and as you may know, there's 21 what they call their national experts, just like 22 then you have your state Ln Texas national experts , , ~ 23 ~ experts. And my question to you is: Have you ~ m a~ 24 talked with any of the national experts with -- with ~ N ~ 25 the tobacco companies? 43 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 textbook? 2 A. Oh. There are a number of different 3 books. I think Williams still stands as one of the 4 best overall texts. I think that the book that is 5 just entitled "Obstetrics," which has as some of its 11:02:30 6 authors Jennifer Niebyl, Steve Gabbe, Joe Leigh 7 Simpson -- and there is a fourth person, and I don't 8 recall who that is -- that is a very good T. V': 9 ~_ obstetrical textbook. 10 Within the area of maternal-fetal 11 medicine, probably Creasy is the standard text that 12 most of us have used, both for our own training 13 purposes over the years as well as training our 14 fellows and recommending it to our residents and/or 11:03:00 15 students who are on rotations. There are a couple 16 of other books that are -- I don't remember the name 17 of it. There is a very good book in obstetrics I 18 have seen from the UK, and I can't remember the 19 author. But there are a number of other books that 20 would likewise be very, very competent in being able 21 to teach people. 11:03:30 22 Q.

2- 2 N 1.4 a 23 that information. 24 Q. Do you recall whether or not you had any 25 specific disagreements with what Dr. Speer's 1 A. No. I've talked to no one other than the 11:05:00 2 attorneys, at least the six names here, and there 3 may have been someone else. But I have not talked 4 with any of the other expert witnesses at any level 5 in this case. And the reason I said earlier from 6 the standpoint of defense, there is one person on 7 the plaintiff's experts who I know well and talk to 8 all the time, but we have not talked about this 9 case, and that's Mike Speer. He's a neonatologist 10 at TCH in Baylor. 11:05:30 11 Q. Uh-huh. 12 A. That's the only person I would talk to, 13 but not about the case. 14 Q. Have you reviewed Dr. Speer's expected 15 testimony in this case? 16 A. There was a list of the plaintiff experts, 17 and I have gone through and read those various 18 documents. I don't recall all of the things. I 19 think that predominantly he would talk about those 20 aspects of smoking he thinks is relevant for a 21 neonatal practitioner and from the standpoint of a 22 neonate, but I don't remember the exact subsets of 11:06:00 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 44

1 researchers, many scientists that have studied the 2 issue have said that the relationship between 3 maternal smoking is -- maternal smoking and low 4 birth weight is so related that the relationship is 5 a causal one? Do you agree that many people have 10:50:30 6 said that in their studies? 7 A. Not necessarily causal, and I use causal 8 in the sense that where you have good, firm data 9 that a specific factor, whatever it happens to be, 10 in and of itself with all other variables controlled 11 clearly defines an abnormality and statistically 12 ends up suggesting that that one factor, with all 13 other things controlled for, really stands out as 10:51:00 14 the factor. And so I can't agree that multiple 15 scientists -- there is a lot of discrepancy within 16 the published literature amongst multiple different 17 issues. There certainly is persistent, there are 18 consistent observations that there is an increased 19 risk of low birth weight with cigarette smoking. 20 There is also limited data that would suggest that 10:51:30 21 at least up to a certain point that there is a 22 dose-related effect, although that dose-related 23 effect does not show what you would normally trend 24 with increasing amounts of a chemical agent with 25 increasing amount of disease, there is some degree 33 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 of plateauing. 2 And then when you look at various other 3 literature, there are multiple other factors, one of 4 the most important of which is the basic issue of 10:52:00 5 the individual person who smokes and whether that 6 smoking and low birth weight, it is a component, it 7 is a risk factor, and there is that association, 8 but is it also a marker, a surrogate, if you will, 9 for other aspects of that particular person's life 10 which is confounding the basic issue of smoking? 11 And, as I said, I'm not here to say that smoking is 10:52i30 12 okay; I don't believe that. But I don't think that 13 it's a full causation statistical effect in the 14 usual causation, meaning directly related. 15 Q. If I understand your definition here that 16 you're utilizing, Doctor, for there to be causation 17 all other factors have to be eliminated and there'll 18 be one factor standing alone, which would be 10:53:00 19 smoking? 20 A. Yes. As far as trying to be a purist, 21 trying to be a scientist -- and I would hope if one Ln J 22 is a true epidemiologist that one would look for m J 23 that isolated factor of maintaining all other ~ J 24 variables.

It can be associated with it, yes. ~ 7 Q. Is smoking a cause of peripheral artery 8 occlusive disease? 11:16:00 9 A. I'm not familiar with that as a specific 10 because, again, many people who have coronary artery 11 disease also have peripheral vascular disease, and 12 so it may or may not be. I won't give you a yes or 13 no on that; I'll give you a maybe. 14 Q. Okay. How about gastric or gastric 15 duodenal ulcers? ::. 16 A. As a direct cause, I don't know. Can I 17 conceptualize that it could be? Yes. And I think 11:16:30 18 there, again, going back to what we were talking ,... 19 earlier about individual personality types and those 20 other factors that lead to a disease process.

Could you give me the name of one 4 or more pathology texts or treatises, if you will, 5 that you feel are authoritative in the area of 6 pathology? 7 A. Pathology? Robbins has always been -.- in 8 fact, I was at the Baylor bookstore the other day 9 picking up a book and I saw the -- I won't call it 10 the new Robbins, because I don't know when it was 11 out, but it certainly is a textbook that I used in 10:58:30 12 medical school, and I would assume has continued to 13 be very good.

Several times, but... i~ 10 Q. Okay. Did you see in there -- I think it 11 may have been on the first page where the president 12 and CEO for Liggett, the Liggett Tobacco Company 13 swore, took the stand and swore and testified under 14 oath, that smoking causes lung cancer and it causes 15 emphysema and several other things and that they've 16 known for years about this but this was the first 11:18:00 17 time they've ever admitted it. Did you read that 18 ti le? a .~ r c 19 A. I did not read that article.

The next area we'll talk about, just in 5 general, is categories, I guess -- 11:20:00 6 A. Okay. 7 Q. -- if you will, of adverse pregnancy 8 outcomes, if you will. And this will be a lot ~, :_-~ 9 quicker now, since I believe I understand your 10 position on these. As we talked earlier, you agree .1 11 that maternal smoking, not the -- is not the only 12 cause, but maternal smoking is a cause -- is a cause 13 of adverse pregnancy outcomes. Is that correct? 14 A. We can either say a cause or a factor, 11:20:30 15 risk factor, as long as the use of the word "cause" 16 is not rearranged or brought out as being causation ~ 17 in a true statistical sense. 18 Q. Okay. 19 A. Meaning proof beyond a shadow of a doubt. 20 So going back with what I said earlier and the rest, 21 absolutely it's a risk factor, and I think there's 11:21:00 22 association in a number of different areas. If we ~ 23 use cause as you -- if we use cause as being Ln 24 equivalent to a risk factor then I can very easily ~-a -J 25 , accept that -- N m ~ ~ w 51 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 2 Q. Okay. A. -- statement that you made. ~ 3 Q. Okay. Well, let me -- let me just tell 4 you this, Doctor: I assure you that when I say 5 6 "cause," or if I ask you is it a cause, I'm not asking whether or not there is proof beyond a shadow 11:21:30 7 of a doubt that it caused the event. Okay? U E{-1 8 9 10 11 A. Okay. Q. That's not what I'm asking you. A. I will accept that definition from this oint on . p --.-i 12 Q. Okay. But, again, I'm not asking you 13 whether or not there is proof beyond a shadow of a 14 doubt that it caused the event. Okay? 15 A Oka . y. 16 Q. What I'm asking you is: As we talked 17 earlier, there can be several causes of an adverse 18 pregnancy outcome. Correct? 11:22:00 19 A. Yes. And when we talked about -- maybe my 20 mind does not work simplistically all the time; « 21 sometimes it does. In this particular area it works Ln 22 in a little bit more complex manner. And so when we ~ ~ 23 talk about "cause," there may be some specific m ~ ~ 24 individual patients where nicotine may be the cause w Ln 25 and the cause only.

Can we take a 25 two-minute break before we get started on this? 1 1 expected testimony is? 2 A. I can honestly say no, because I don't 3 remember all of the comments that were made. 4 Q.

Do you agree that Dr. Speer enjoys a very 11 good reputation in the medical community in the area 12 of neonatology? 13 A. Certainly in this area, meaning Houston, 14 or perhaps in Texas. Absolutely.

Okay. 1 8 Q. What is your opinion on lung cancer? Is 9 smoking a cause of lung cancer? 10 A. Yes, it is a cause. 11 Q. Esophageal cancer? 12 A. Yes. 13 Q. Pancreatic cancer? 11:14:00 14 A. There are associations that have been led 15 to that, yes. 16 Q. Urinary bladder cancer? 17 A. I can honestly say I am not aware of that. 18 Q. Laryngeal -- y 19 A.

1 Within his depositions, best I can recall 2 without trying to find a specific quotation, he 3 basically changed that, said that he really thought 4 that there was causation, and that certainly differs 10:49:00 5 from what he had stated before in his other writings -;-. 6 with the technical bulletin and that was brought out -, 7 by, I believe, the defense attorneys during that 8 particular discussion, and it was discussed. 9 Q. Do you agree, Doctor, that there are 10 pregnancy complications that are associated with 11 maternal smoking? 12 A. Yes, sir, there are. 13 Q. There's no doubt about that. Correct? 14 A. I don't think there's a doubt about that. 15 That's correct. 10:49:30 16 Q. Did you also review the 1996 ACOG 17 Technical Bulletin? 18 A.

'-. 1 Q. Okay? I'm not interested in proof beyond 2 a shadow of a doubt. That's a burden that I don't 3 believe anyone can meet. And so I'm not questioning 4 you in that regard. Okay? 5 A. Okay. 6 Q. When I ask about a cause, it's 7 acknowledging between you and I that I know that 11:24:00 8 several things at work, each can be a cause of a 9 given event. I'm not saying that it is the only 10 cause of the event. Okay? 11 A. I agree. 12 Q. Okay. 13 A. Okay. 14 Q. With that understanding, do you agree that 15 smoking, maternal smoking, is a cause of low birth . 16 weight or small for gestational age? 11:24:30 17 A. Yes.

I thought it was surprising 9 that he or anybody else would say that.

That would be in the same context. It's 7 epithelial surface that is exposed so, yes, there 8 have been associations. ~ 9 Q. Coronary heart disease? ~ 10 A. Yes. I think a very strong association, 11 if not causation there. 12 Q. So you would say that smoking would be a 13 cause of coronary heart disease? 11:15:00 14 A. Yes, and at the most minimum. If it is 15 not a cause, it is a significant contributor to 16 adverse outcomes in individuals who have coronary 17 heart disease. So it depends on how one wants to 18 take that. 19 Q. Uh-huh. 20 A.

So unknown, or some -- ~ =.. . -:, ., 6 A Well -- ~ . 7 Q. Maybe yes, maybe no? 8 A. What I can say in that circumstance, there -:~ 9 are a number of different articles which suggest 40 -r, 10 that there is an increased pregnancy loss rate in 11 patients who are smokers. Some of the actual data 12 is that it does not have the same percentage or 13 ratio of chromosomal abnormalities that we would 11:25:30 14 expect in, if you will, the general population of 15 people. And so there is an excess of nonchromosomal 16 pregnancy losses, and so that is a very distinct 17 finding. But as the ACOG Technical Bulletin talks 18 about, there is also data looking at IBF pregnancies 19 where there was not that association and then they 20 did not see a clear difference. There was an 21 increase, but it certainly was not clear. But -- 11:26:00 22 implantation and the rest. So it may be a cause. ~ 23 May be a cause. ~ N m 24 Q. Okay.

1 Doctor, is maternal smoking a cause of 11:30:30 2 fertility problems? 3 A. That has been reported, that decreased 4 capacity, or fecundity, if you will, it's written 5 about and stated. But statistical evaluation and 6 even reading the primary articles have not done 7 that. But, yes, that's stated. That's stated 8 within the ACOG Technical Bulletin. 9 Q. You mentioned the ACOG Technical 11:31:00 10 Bulletin. What is ACOG? 11 A. Oh, precise definition is American College 12 of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. A-C-O-G. 13 Q. And this is a national organization. Is 14 that correct? 15 A. It's a national organization which has two 16 different subsets of members. One are those 17 individuals who are considered to be full members, 18 and they are board certified individuals, and then 11:31:30 19 there is a separate subset of individuals who are 20 board eligible, and they are normally considered to 21 be, if you will, junior members of ACOG. 22 Q.

1 Q. In your opinion does ACOG do a good job in 2 getting the information out to its members, the 3 newest information, by way of technical bulletins 4 that come out? 5 A. It depends on what you mean "a good job." 6 There is frequently a substantial lag phase from the 7 time that, if you will, new and relatively proven 11:33:30 8 things come about and, if you will, a technical 9 bulletin updating prior data or even -- maybe even a 10 new technical bulletin or other publications, 11 because there are a multitude of different 12 publications that ACOG has. I think over the course 13 of time that, yes, that they do try to get 14 information which has -- there's a good legal term 15 I've learned over the course of time -- proved up. 16 So that they try to get information of things which 11:34:00 17 have been proved up out to the obstetricians in the 18 t coun ry. 19 20 21 22 But you brought a very specific and clean Ln ~ ~ word usage a second ago, and that is "to its ~ m members " You could be a board certified ~ . ~ obstetrician and not a member of ACOG, and you would ~ ~ 23 receive none of ACOG's publications or -- of any 24 type. And so you would have none of that educative 25 experience given to you. 11:34:30 61 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

That is certainly, given 3 one of the procedures I do, chorionic villi 4 sampling, that certainly has not come out in the 5 population of patients who have had CVA, who have 11:26:30 6 been looked at because they have been indexed as TJ 7 having a limb reduction defect, as being a 8 significant factor. Maybe it will be in the future, 9 but as of this point I would consider that to be 10 unproven. 11 Q. Is maternal smoking a cause of preterm 12 delivery? 13 A. There is an excess preterm delivery rate 14 in smokers, yes. 11:27:00 15 Q. Is maternal smoking a cause of sudden 16 infant death syndrome? 17 A.

Although I'm not a politician, I 14 think that there is a political base to it, also. 15 And it's -- also serves as a forum for obstetricians 11:32:30 16 in general, and the involvement of the 17 obstetrical -- we'll use obstetrical as opposed to 18 the gynecologic component -- involvement in multiple 19 other societies, such as the American Academy of 20 Pediatrics. There are different committees that we 21 have who have AAP members. There are different 22 committees in the AAP where there are ACOG members, 11:33:00 23 and all of that is to try to come to the -- some of 24 the issues, I said again, of education and updating Ln F- ~ ~ 25 of information. m J N W 60 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 Q. So the technical bulletins are, again, 2 only sent out to members of ACOG? 3 A. Right. Unless you subscribe to them as a 4 nonmember, which I'm sure people do, but they do go 5 to the members as a component part of your annual 6 dues ~ . 7 Q. What type of other materials does ACOG 8 send out in addition to technical bulletins? 9 A. Oh, they have -- if you will, it's a 10 monthly publication which basically has some 11:35:00 11 updating news about both new events, NIH or NICHD 12 data, research components. Things which may, in 13 fact, be applicable to clinical practice now that 14 has not as of this particular time been covered by 15 technical bulletins. There is a diagnosis and 16 treatment criteria sheet. It's sort of a -- and 17 that's not it's exact name, but it's close; it's 11:35:30 18 sort of a purple color right now -- where they try 19 to go through minimal diagnostic criteria and 20 minimal treatment criteria within the -- one of the 21 areas of quality assurance. There is actually Ln -,, ~ 22 another set of publications when they do come out ~ ~ 23 three, four, five pages in length on quality m ~, ~ 24 assurance areas, hysterectomies and various other c~n 25 things. 62 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 And so not everybody in -- will quickly adopt. The 11:38:30 2 way I've said it before in circumstances is 3 sometimes it's difficult to teach old dogs new 4 tricks, and some of those new tricks may be 5 appropriate; some of them may not be. 6 Q. How often do the technical bulletins come 7 out? 8 A. There is an ACOG pack which usually comes 9 out on a monthly basis. I would say that in a given 10 course of a year there are probably anywhere from 11 six to 10. So if I had to break that down, then, it 11:39:00 12 could be as frequently as every month, and it could 13 be as infrequently as every two months or so. There 14 are some months, and I'm sure that there have been 15 times when there may have been several months when 16 there was no technical bulletin, and then there were 17 two or three or four that may have come in a single 18 package. So it varies, but approximately one every 19 month to two months. 20 Q. How are these, based on your 11:39:30 21 understanding, how are these technical bulletins 22 created? 23 A. They -- there usually is a committee of 24 different individuals, with -- those with respect to 25 the obstetrician. There is a committee upon the 65 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 fetus and newborn that has both ACOG members as well 2 as AAP members, and the ACOG members certainly in 3 that particular committee would be a more dominant 4 voice. And then both the committee -- and then they 5 may bring in a specific person who is not on the 11:40:00 6 committee who may have an expertise in that 7 particular area, such as with respect to herpes 8 simplex virus. Larry Corey from Washington State, 9 Zane Brown. A number of different people who have 10 great expertise in a particular area may be invited 11 to both review and contribute toward that type of a 12 bulletin. 13 I don't know the exact role that Dr. Sachs 14 had in the ACOG Technical Bulletins on smoking and 15 OB/GYN, but his name was certainly on the back of 11:40:30 16 it. The whole committee is not listed on the back. 17 Many times the bulletin does not have any single 18 19 20 21 22 person's name listed. how they are created. So that's my understanding of I've never participated in one of those, so I don't know the ins and outs. Ln N -i Q. Do you -- ~ m ~ ~ A. They do take a long time, though, from ~ 23 the -- from conceptualization and then ultimate 24 committee meetings and then final publication and 25 distribution. 11:41:00 66 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 Q. Okay. An ACOG bulletin came out in 1996, : 2 I believe -- didn't it, Doctor -- dealing with a 3 smoking and reproductive health, I think? 4 A. I think that's the term of it, yes. From 5 what I could recall and, again, this is not having a . .; 6 comparison, it had much of the information which was 7 present in that 1993 technical bulletin. But if 8 there were changes, I'm not cognizant of the exact 9 changes. 11:41:30 10 Q. Okay. You mentioned AAP, and that -- I 11 take it that that was the American Academy of 12 Pediatrics? 13 A. Yes. 14 Q. Okay. Do members of the American Academy 15 of Pediatrics receive the ACOG publications? 16 A. I would think on a general basis, no, they 17 would not. Just like I do not receive AAP -- I 18 guess they have bulletins; I don't know. But if 19 they do, before when I said that there was -- there 20 were joint committees, I gave as a specific example 11:42:00 21 standards for OB/GYN services, and there certainly 22 there was a joint committee. And I do know that Ln N ~ ~ 23 with respect to that particular book that m ~ 24 pediatricians who were members of the AAP received ~ Ln 25 it, but I would not think that that would be true m 67 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

It may have been; I 6 don't know. I got that particular book many, many 7 years ago. I went through it and looked at a lot of 8 the statistics, but I certainly don't recall those 9 statistics. 11:55:00 10 Q. I've got it right here, Doctor, if you'd 11 like to take a look at this. If you want me to just 12 read it to you... 13 A. That would be fine. 14 Q. This is from the book, "Disorders of the 15 Placenta, Fetus And Neonate: Diagnosis and Clinical 16 Significance." You got it over there? 17 A. There is a small set of that. 18 Q. I've got one here for you, Doctor. 11:55:30 19 A. Yeah. May I just see that? 20 Q. Yes, sir. 21 A.

In Naeye's book, based on the 17 collaborative perinatal study that was done he 11:56:30 18 states, "A strong association has been reported 19 between maternal cigarette smoking and spontaneous 20 abortion. The probability is strong that smoking is 21 a major cause of abortions because chromosomal 22 anomalies with major malformations are the basis for 23 the majority of abortions before 10 weeks' gestation 24 and a much smaller proportion of abortuses of 25 smokers than of nonsmokers have chromosomal 77 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

__, _, 4>: 1 substantial compounder. It may also truly be a 2 surrogate of the population of patients who are, in 3 fact, smokers. I'll let others talk about that in a 4 knowledgeable way, and I'll give you a maybe on 5 that. I can't say yes or no. 6 Q. Okay. Is maternal smoking a cause of 11:28:00 7 mental retardation? 8 A. From what I have read on that prior to and 9 during the last week or so of reading this 10 information, that is not proven. That is not proven 11:28:30 24 problems in the newborn? 11:29:00 25 A. Behavioral? Most babies defecate, pee, 11 at all. 12 Q. Okay. 13 A. I'll give you a no right now and leave it 14 to others who may be more knowledgeable to discuss 15 that with you. 16 Q. Okay. Is maternal smoking a cause of 17 cognitive deficits? Low IQs, I guess? 18 A. Very disparate data, and so I'll give you 19 the same answer as the other: I'll leave that to 20 people who work with children all the time or are 21 involved in the appropriate statistical evaluation 22 and management with those studies. 23 Q. Is maternal smoking a cause of behavioral KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 57
Page 68: ztq82d00
, 1 Q. From a national standpoint? 2 A. I think that you really have to dissect 3 this. It says 19 to 30 percent. The general figure 4 that has been used is 20 to 25 percent of pregnant 5 women smoke. Well, 20 to 25 percent is not 30 6 percent, it certainly is not 19, but it's close to 11:47:30 7 20. Now, if they divided that and said that within 8 certain ethnic populations X, then it may be 30 9 percent or 35 percent in some populations of 10 people. So I think that that is generally true, but 11 I think you have to specifically apply it. Who are 12 you talking about? Education. 13 Q. Right. 14 A. Race. Those are specific areas where it 15 changes and changes substantially. 16 Q. Page 6, I guess. The headline is 11:48:00 17 "Fertility," or the topic I guess is "Fertility." 18 A. Okay. I have that. 19 Q. You've got it? We've already touched on 20 this. I take it that you agree with the statement 21 there that, "Smoking reduces overall female 22 fertility as measured by fecundity, the probability 23 of conception for a given couple during a given 11:48:30 24 menstrual cycle.

1 abnormalities." 11:57:00 2 It further states that, "In the CPS 3 cigarette smoking" -- "smokers had more spontaneous 4 abortions than did nonsmokers. These were mainly 5 late abortions because most of the women who entered 6 the CPS did so after early abortions would have 7 taken place. The higher frequency of these late 8 abortions in CPS smokers than in nonsmokers was . 9 independent of advanced maternal age and congenital 10 malformations in the embryos, the only other factors 11:57:30 11 in the CPS that had a strong association with 12 abortions. Eleven percent of the abortions in the 13 CPS could be attributed to cigarette smoking." 14 Now, I think that's what you mentioned 15 earlier, that you had to control for the maternal 16 age, because the risk of chromosomal anomalies 17 really increases as they get older? 11:58:00 18 A. Correct. 19 Q. Is that correct? 20 A. And also the intrinsic risk of a loss of 21 pregnancy, and especially age 4.0 and above. 22 that basically Doctor So do you agree Q Ln r , , . ~ 23 Naeye had reached the same opinion that's contained ~ m ~ ~ 24 here in the 1996 technical bulletin, that smoking -- Ln 25 that smoking has this strong association with %D 78 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

And I'll represent to you that this is a 4 technical bulletin for June of 1996 dealing with 5 smoking and women's health. 11:44:00 6 A Ok . ay. 7 Q. Okay? Obviously it's not something I've 8 drafted . :~ 9 A. I understand that. 10 Q.

1 A. Yes. 2 Q. And that -- 3 A. That would be a relative risk factor of 4 two in that circumstance, and that is a reasonable 5 percentage. I think there was one of the things 6 within Naeye, or somebody, where they looked at 7 placental volume and indicated that there was a 8 larger placenta. And so if a larger placenta does, 9 in fact, come lower and cover the os, yes, you could 10 have placenta previa more frequently. So there was 12:02:30 11 actually a biological observation that could fit 12 with the clinical observation. So, yes, it is a 13 risk factor. 14 Q. More likely than not, does a -- would a 15 placenta previa lead to a preterm delivery? 16 A. Not necessarily. On a statistical basis 17 there is an increased risk for a preterm delivery 18 with a placenta previa because a substantial number 19 of patients with preterm -- correction. 20 A substantial number of patients with 21 placenta previa will have major bleeds prior to the 22 37th week and can end up being delivered. And so 12:03:00 23 that would be true, in general, whether you're a 24 smoker or a nonsmoker. Ln ~ J 25 Q. Okay.

Uh-huh. 7 A. But that's as good an answer as I can give 8 you. 9 Q. Okay. I want to ask you just a few 10 questions.

1 disease, and I'm not going to list all of the other 2 thi ngs. 3 Q. Right. 4 A. I take care of rare, normal people. 5 Therefore, if I have someone who smokes -- and 6 that's infrequent to begin with -- then what I tell 7 them about cigarette smoking is that it is injurious 8 to you, you already have substantive risk factors, 12:00:00 9 and those have been gone into in detail, and that 10 cigarette smoking will increase that risk for 11 whatever proportion. I don't state specifically the 12 issue of abortion. 13 Q. I understand. Okay. Getting back to the 14 technical bulletin, ACOG Technical Bulletin, 15 D t 00 30 12 or. oc : : 16 A. Okay. 17 Q. If you would turn the page, please, from 18 the last one we talked about.

1 the consistency -- they used the word "consistent" 2 association. That's very true. But in a lot of the 3 circumstances, that relative risk is on the order of 4 1.3 to 1.5 and you start talking to statisticians 5 and epidemiologists about, well, how sound is that 6 in an area that has many, many, many different 12:05:00 7 factors, then it may not be causation. That's what 8 we had talked about before, and so -- 9 Q. Right. 10 A. -- I'm trying not to repeat myself, 11 because I don't want to waste your time nor mine. 12 Q. No, I -- 13 A. And so "probable" means that it is not 14 causative, but there may be if you were able to do 15 that perfect study, whatever it happened to be. 16 Q. Would "probable" mean more likely than 17 not, as compared to "possible"? 18 A. I think one has to get to a difference of 12:05:30 19 semantics. 20 Q. Okay. 21 A. In the legal world "possible" is anything 22 that could happen in any circumstance. "Probable" cn ~ ~ 23 always to me is that it's more probable than not, ~ m 24 meaning 50.1 percent or more. ~ r 25 Q.

1 A. And that was the number I used, and so 2 we're going to be off one. 3 Q. Okay. Looking about a little over halfway 4 down the page, there's a statement that says, 5 "Between 19-30% of pregnant women continue to smoke 6 putting themselves and their fetuses at risk for a 11:46:00 7 number of adverse reproductive events." 8 My question to you is: Does that number 9 sound about right, with regard to your personal 10 experiences? 11 A. Personal experience, I would say no, 12 because the vast majority of patients I take care of 11:46:30 13 do not smoke. I have taken care and been involved 14 for many, many years within the Harris County 15 Hospital District for a different population of 16 people with a higher incidence of smoking within the 17 different ethnicities, and I certainly cannot 18 quantitate that, but certainly there were smoking 19 patients. So my personal experience would be that 20 would not be an appropriate figure for my personal 21 population of patients. 11:47:00 22 Q. Okay. 23 A. But I think that those figures are Ln ~ 24 probably reasonably correct, given general m 25 information. •- 70 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

! , 1 members, also. 2 Q. I take it, then, obviously the 3 publications such as the technical bulletins that 4 are sent out by ACOG to its members, that certainly ~ 5 its members can regard these publications as being 6 reliable and containing reliable information. Fair 11:37:30 7 statement? , :=a 8 A. Yes, that would be a very true statement. 9 Q. Containing information upon which they 10 should make treatment decisions with regard to their 11 own patients? 12 A. The information is there, and the 13 individual physician can use that information to 14 make decisions, hopefully positive decisions. But 15 I'm sure there are some physicians who read the 16 information and then continue practicing as they 17 have done before. I'll give you a specific example 11:38:00 18 that is true: About a third of physicians as of 19 several years ago, multiple years after a change in 20 ACOG recommendations in a technical bulletin, 21 continued to culture patients, some patients for , ~ 22 herpes simplex virus, vulvovaginal disease.

1 I don't know, the power of the study is. 2 Q. You're familiar, Doctor, with the 3 collaborative perinatal study that was done back in 4 the '50s and '60s? 11:53:30 5 A. Try '59 through '66. They have a green 6 book, "The Women and Their Pregnancies," that was 7 published. 8 Q. Dealing with, I think it was right around 9 60,000 women or 58,000 women? 10 A. 55 to 60. Somewhere in there. 11 Q. Okay. That's a study that has been used 12 by a number of researchers, I take it, to -- and 13 statisticians to reach conclusions in a number of 11:54:00 14 different areas. Is that correct? 15 A. I think that's a correct statement. 16 Q. The data has been analyzed and reanalyzed 17 and reanalyzed many times? 18 A. I think that that's a correct statement, 19 and even analyzed in the early '90s in publications 20 specifically from Naeye that I can recall still cn ~ 21 coming out which is interesting 30 years -- almost ~ , ~ m 22 30 years later . ~ ~ 23 Ln Q. Do you recall whether or not Naeye -- you c, 24 mentioned Dr. Richard Naeye and his book. Do you 25 recall whether or not he reached the same conclusion 11:54:30 75 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 78: ztq82d00
2 Q. -- what I want to cover again, just so I'm 3 clear, when you speak in terms of "causation," you 4 are saying that it has been proved -- if you say 5 that is the -- that -- let me back up here. 6 I believe you testified earlier that as 7 far as causation you regard something to cause an 8 event if it is proved beyond a shadow of a doubt 12:07:30 9 that it is the cause. Is that correct? 10 A. I think yes. May I give you one other 11 circumstance which maybe will put this in 12 perspective? 13 Q. But let me ask you, is the way I just put 14 that, is that correct? 15 A. Yes. 16 Q. Okay. Go ahead. I'm sorry. 17 A. Okay. In all of the legal work I have 18 ever done, and certainly when it comes to the point 19 of review of cases, when it com es to the point -- 20 whether that review is for the defense or the 21 plaintiff bar -- in talking about negligence and 12:08:00 22 being responsible for actions, you may have a 23 deviation in standard of care you may have a bad Ln ~ , ~ 24 outcome. But the one thing that must link all of ~ m ~ ~ 25 the elements in that issue of negligence is the ~ 86 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 79: ztq82d00
1 issue of causation. Perhaps I have a hangup in that 2 circumstance, because I look at the data and it -- 3 whether as a scientist, but a nonmathematical 4 scientist as we've talked about, I haven't seen that 12:08:30 5 issue of causation. Association and the rest, risk 6 factors; no question about it. Do I want people to 7 smoke? No, I don't. Maybe some of my hangup and 8 perhaps is on that -- well, except for this case, 9 all of my other work in the legal area has been with 10 that causation linkage. And it may be a problem in 11 this circumstance with respect to why I go back to 12 that issue each time. And I'm not trying to beat a 12:09:00 13 dead horse. Maybe that helps, and maybe that 14 doesn't . 15 Q. I think it does. I think I understand 16 your conception of "cause." Okay? That, as we 17 talked earlier, smoking, maternal smoking, you 18 agree, is a cause -- not the only cause at work -- 19 but is a cause of adverse pregnancy outcomes. 12:09:30 20 Correct? 21 A. Yes. 22 Q. Okay. For it to be the only cause the Ln ~ , ~ 23 only cause, epidemiologically speaking or study m ~ N 24 speaking, you would have to see proof beyond a ~ 25 shadow of a doubt. Is that correct? 87 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 80: ztq82d00
1 it is a factor, it is a component of. If you will, 2 like a pie graph. There may be 25 different things 3 in the pie graph, and smoking is one specific thing 4 in this particular area; in others it may be only 5 one of four or five different components to the pie 6 graph. But the risk factor -- I'm not trying to 7 obfuscate the current circumstance. 12:12:00 8 Q. No, you're fine, Doctor. It's -- I 9 understand what you're saying; at least I think I 10 do. But we agree, you and I agree, that smoking -- 11 smoking is a cause -- not the only cause, but 12 smoking is a cause of adverse pregnancy outcomes. 13 Correct? 14 A. I will agree with that. 15 Q. Okay. The next sentence is underneath 16 there, Doctor. It says, "Recent studies have shown 12:12:30 17 a consistent relationship between preterm premature 18 rupture of membrane, P-R-O-M, and smoking." Do you 19 agree with that? Ln r ~ 20 A. No, and I don't because from the m ~ ~ ~ 21 information I have read there is a lot of ~ 22 discordance about whether it is or is not. There 23 are papers that have tried to bring a linkage to it, 12:13:00 24 there are others that have clearly said no. When 25 you take in all of the other aspects, we cannot say 89 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 correctly you'd mentioned something with regard to 2 chromosomal analysis having to be done on the issue 3 of spontaneous abortions in your report? 4 A. No. That -- we've talked about that at 11:52:00 5 various meetings and the rest. It would be 6 true -- it is true that you can do chromosomal 7 studies on any abortus. This particular study said 8 that they did it any population of people, and that 9 there was an excess of normal karyotypes in this 10 population. Again, I have not read that specific 11 article. This particular comment has been made and 12 has been around for some period of time. I don't 13 remember from the document the exact comment that 11:52:30 14 was made, but it would basically agree that there 15 is -- it's a risk factor in that circumstance. 16 Certainly when you see a population in here, the 17 specific issue of stratification for maternal age 18 becomes a very, very significant factor, because 19 there's increasing risk for chromosome abnormalities 20 with age. And if you have controlled your study so 21 that age factor is removed and you consistently see 11:53:00 22 that difference of spontaneous losses, then one 23 would have to conclude that it is a risk factor.

1 A. Yes. Fulfilling good statistical norms. 2 Q. Okay. However, if the standard is 3 probability, not absolute proof, not proof beyond a 12:10:00 4 shadow of a doubt, if the standard is probable, 5 50.001 percent, or whatever it may be, more likely 6 than not if that's the standard, then I take it that 7 you would agree with the statement here that there's 8 a probable causal relationship between low birth 9 weight. Correct? 10 A. There is -- it is a risk factor. There is 12:10:30 11 clear association. To use the word here, there is 12 consistency of that information. But, again, it 13 leads from epidemiology and the rest; it has not 14 been proven causal. And I don't know of a way to -- 15 it certainly is not the only factor. And I guess 12:11:00 16 I'm trying to make that -- 17 Q. And if we agree -- and if we agree that 18 there are other factors that can cause the event, I 19 take it that -- what am I trying to say here? 20 A. Maybe -- maybe "cause" is not a good word cn ~ -i ~ 21 to use, because several times when you've used that m ~ 22 word the word that has hit my -- my head ~ rn 23 instantaneously, and one time before I meant to say ko 24 it and I didn't, "contributor," you could call it. 12:11:30 25 That also means it contributes, it is also a risk, 88 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 There's other information which is 2 provided on specific topics intermittently, such as 3 Cesarean section and the rest. Let's see. Oh, 11:36:00 4 there's a monthly list of those individual people 5 who have expired, and then also those who have 6 applied for membership and been granted membership, 7 and then a part of that, also, has a listing so~that 8 if you know someone on that particular list and you 9 have information which might be appropriate to the 10 American College in considering application, then 11 they have requested that information in the past. 11:36:30 12 That covers a lot of the things with ACOG. 13 Q. A lot of information. 14 A. Others -- yes, there's a lot of 15 information. There have been other things, 16 specifically books that -- or booklets, if you will, 17 that have come out over the course of time directly 18 from ACOG, such as standards of care for obstetrical 19 and gynecologic facilities, the management of 20 neonates and so forth, and that would be within 21 their realm of their technical publications, too. 11:37:00 22 It's not always as ACOG alone, such as the standards 23 for obstetrical and gynecologic facilities; that was iLn ~ ~ 24 both the AAP as well as the ACOG.

1 spontaneous abortion? 2 A. Yes. The relative risk is increased. 3 Q. What is the relative risk here? Do you -- 4 A. The relative risk here was, all gravidas 11:58:30 5 without respect to stratification for age, was 1.5. 6 Q. What does that mean? 7 A. That would mean that you observed 50 8 percent greater incidence of spontaneous loss in 9 patients who smoked versus those who did not. 10 Q. When you counsel your patients, Doctor, do 11:59:00 11 you inform them of the risk of a spontaneous 12 abortion if they kept smoking? I'm assuming they're 13 smokers. 14 A. Okay. I don't tell them about spontaneous 15 abortion. I talk about pregnancy loss and pregnancy 16 loss most specifically in the context of weight. 17 There has to be a -- I have to make a statement 18 about this. I don't take care of normal people. 19 Okay? 11:59:30 20 Q. High risk? 21 A. I take care of high risk patients. ~ 22 Q ~ Right . . ~ ~ 5 23 A.

1 A. Yes. 2 Q. And the ACOG Technical Bulletin gave a 3.5 3 to 4.0 fold increase for smokers versus nonsmokers. 4 A. Yes. 5 Q. You indicated that was a higher number 6 than you've seen in the past. I just want to show 7 you what the 1990 Surgeon General report indicated. 12:20:30 8 It's down here, Doctor. My question is: Is the 9 Surgeon General's report of 1990 consistent with the 10 1996 ACOG Technical Bulletin? 11 A. Yes, they use the same article as their 12 reference source. 13 Q. Okay. Thank you. In your opinion does 14 that, since the Surgeon General has now utilized it, 12:21:00 15 also, does that lend more credibility, or 16 reliability, if you will, to the frequency? 17 A. I'll give you a -- it may not be 18 responsive; I hope it is, because it'll be the 19 truth. I neither believe everything I see, I don't 20 believe everything I hear, and I certainly don't 12:21:30 21 believe everything I get from the government. 22 That's a single article.

1 Because there are different weight classifications. 2 Whereas in the U.S. most of the time we talk about 3 Caucasian weight standards as opposed to Asian 4 weight standards, Hispanic weight standards, we talk 5 about Arizona, the Pima Indian standards. And so I 6 don't know that particular reference. That's a 12:16:00 7 very, very high number. 8 Q. Okay. 9 A. Much higher than I've ever seen. 10 Q. All right. 11 A. And I don't remember that particular 12 number being in the 1993 article. 13 Q. Let's drop down to "Perinatal Outcomes" on 14 the same page. First paragraph, Recent -- "Multiple 15 recent studies have demonstrated a clear association 16 between maternal smoking and perinatal loss. 12:16:30 17 Placenta previa, abruptio placentae, preterm 18 premature rupture of membranes were responsible for 19 most of the perinatal losses in smokers." I take 20 it, based on what you said earlier, the problem you Ln ~ 21 would have with that would be the preterm premature J ~ m 22 rupture of membranes. Is that correct? ~ ~ ~ 23 A. Only -- well, not in the context of if you w 24 talk about total losses. 25 Q. I see. 12:17:00 92 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 that this is a causative factor. There is some data 2 that shows that the risk factor, again, is greater 3 than 1. 4 But one of the other things that's been 5 very poorly studied and is becoming now a major 6 issue within obstetrics in general is the whole 7 issue of bacterial infections, ascending infections 8 specifically, bacterial vaginosis. And there has 9 not been -- and that is, in fact, a very significant 12:13:30 10 lifestyle issue. And that has not been -- that -- 11 that, I think, very potent confounder has not been 12 factored in well, and that really needs to be done. 13 And I'm sure in the next several years either the 14 National Perinatal Collaborative Group or the Texas 15 or one of the other smaller groups will look at that 16 as a specific issue. 17 Q. Okay. 18 A. Hopefully smoking data will be -- will be 19 acquired as a component part of that study. 20 Q. Okay. 12:14:00 21 A. But right now I don't think -- that 22 certainly is nowhere close to being either probable, 23 and certainly not causative. 24 Q. Okay. Let's turn the page. The first 25 paragraph, the first new paragraph. 90 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 88: ztq82d00
1 A. Okay. 2 Q. It starts -- it's titled, "Pregnancy 3 Complications 12:01:00 4 A. Okay. 5 Q. It states, In the collaborative perinatal 6 study -- excuse me. "In the Collaborative Perinatal 7 Project study, abruptio placentae was 1.5 times more 8 common and was more likely to result in perinatal 9 mortality in smokers than in nonsmokers." Does that 10 make sense to you, Doctor? 11 A. The mechanism does not necessarily make 12 sense, but certainly that has been observed in 13 several different studies, and so I can accept that 12:01:30 14 as a risk factor. 15 Q. Okay. 16 A. Again, exact mechanism, that remains to be 17 determined. 18 Q. Right. Two sentences down further it 19 states, "In several recent studies, women who smoked 20 cigarettes during pregnancy had placenta previa 21 twice as often as nonsmokers." 22 A. Yes. 12:02:00 23 Q. That -- Ln 24 A. I have seen that before. ~ ~ 25 Q. You've seen that? ~ 81 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 89: ztq82d00
1 A. Because preterm premature rupture of 2 membranes, if it occurs, yes, there is a 3 statistically increased risk for loss of that 4 because -- for prematurity, complications of fetus 5 prematurity. There certainly is increased risk for 6 adverse outcomes for that child if it is born as a 7 premature. Big difference between 36 weeks of 8 prematurity versus 26 weeks. I do have a problem, 9 as you stated, because that is not a clear 10 association. But from the standpoint of total 11 perinatal losses, that would be -- those are the 12:17:30 12 three major ones, besides "idiopathic preterm 13 labor." And that may be greater than the others, as 14 far as final numbers. 15 Q. Okay. I believe the rest of the technical 16 bulletin, Doctor, deals with smoking cessation, 17 getting the pregnant ladies to stop smoking. 18 A. Which is tough. 12:18:00 19 MR. GIBLIN: Okay. Let me take a break Ln 20 right now, if we could. ~ ~ 21 THE WITNESS: Okay. ~ ~ ~ 22 (A recess was taken.) ~ ~ 23 Q. (BY MR.

1 multiple different references all citing the same. 2 That is the highest number I have seen personally in 3 looking at this information. 4 Q. Okay. 5 A. I will try to pull that article and read 6 it, because I also notice that it appears to be a 7 British publication, and -- or it is in a British 12:22:00 8 publication. Is it a British study? And if it is, 9 where did it come from? And what ethnic populations 10 and so forth are they discussing? I think that 11 that -- that's a high figure. I'll stand by that; 12 it's the highest one. But I agree, that it was in 13 the 1990 Surgeon General's report. 14 Q. Okay. 15 A. That same reference. 16 Q. Okay. 17 A. This may not be relevant, but just looking 12:22:30 12 23 1 : : 1 18 at that number, if you take a background Caucasian 19 population and the incidence of a low birth weight Ln ~ ~ ~ 6 20 which has been seen in a number of studies of plus ~ ~ 21 or minus four or five percent and then if you take ~ , m 22 a composite black population of smokers where 23 frequencies of 18 to 20 percent low birth weight 12:23:30 24 status has been seen and do simple division, you may 25 come up with a figure of about a four fold. 95 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 91: ztq82d00
1 A. I'm not sure what Dr. Sachs and the other 2 individuals -- if they're using it in the sense of 3 50.1 or more, there may be, but that's still not 12:06:00 4 causation. It may be that the volume of data is 5 sufficient to think that there may, in fact, be a 6 causative effect, but you haven't proven it yet. 7 Q. Okay. 8 A. And the most interesting thing is, also, 9 in reading this and then from prior knowledge, but 10 especially going through a lot of this, given the 11 totality of all of the articles that have ever been 12 written, all of them talk about the relative risk, 13 but it still hasn't gotten down to the issue of 14 causation, because there's so many other factors. 15 And I know from my own personal experience, both 12:06:30 16 with individual patients within my private practice 17 over time, as well as patients within the county 18 system that there are so many other factors within 19 the family, within the person, their behaviors and 20 the rest that it does not come down to a simple 21 thing. And that's probably -- maybe one of the 22 reasons that if there is causation it gets clouded. 23 But it -- the numbers and association is there. 24 Q. And, again, I don't mean to beat a dead 25 horse here, but -- 12:07:00 85 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 92: ztq82d00
1 time evaluation of carboxyhemoglobin in the fetus as 2 opposed to post delivery data. And so there -- they 3 found no conclusive evidence at all that there was 4 an impact on oxygenation of the fetus. 5 There was another comment made by Naeye -- 12:26:30 6 I believe it was Naeye; I won't state it was he -- 7 about another issue where we can have very, very, 8 very low hemoglobin, and this is specifically the Rh 9 alloimmunized patients, where some of the patients I 10 see may have hematocrits of six and eight and 10. 11 Where we know that those particular fetuses, as long 12 as there's not a major acute cord accident or when 13 we're transfusing them we create a problem from 12:27:00 14 having transfused them, we know that those very, 15 very low levels of hemoglobin and oxygen allow for 16 normal physical growth, and they allow for normal 17 cerebral development, because the outcome of those 18 pregnancies are very good. So that there's nothing 19 from the standpoint of at least Peter Soothill's 20 paper, nor the experience with severely anemic 21 fetuses which would suggest even in a smoking 22 population, as Peter looked at it, that there's an 12:27:30 23 adverse impact upon growth upon oxygenation. So now 24 it comes down to is there something else i e what Ln , . ., ~-A -J 25 other factors are involved in that issue? But it's m J 98 ko KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 93: ztq82d00
1 not just a simple oxygenation, just as we know the 2 issue of low birth weight in smokers is not just a 3 simple issue of food intake, although that's a very 4 important variable. 5 Q. Did you say food intake? 6 A. Food intake is an important variable in 7 certain segments of the population. It is not the 12:28:00 8 only factor. 9 Q. Right. 10 A. So one can't say a smoker who has very 11 poor nutrition is going to have a small baby only 12 because they're deficient in food, as an example. 13 Again, multifactorial risk. 14 Q. With regard to the food intake, Doctor, do 15 you recall in the collaborative perinatal study that 12:28:30 16 Naeye wrote about that, you know, increasing 17 maternal weight gain did not ensure that the fetus 18 would not be small for gestational age? 19 A. Yes, that statement is made. There's also 12:29:00 20 an interesting thing from the Texas data which was 21 provided, and that is looking at the WIC program ~ 22 where they clearly saw an augmentation of fetal r 3 eight with improvement in maternal nutrition J F-+ m J ~ 24 between first, second and third trimester entrance co 25 to the WIC program. Now, that also goes back to the m 99 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 94: ztq82d00
1 of the effect of maternal smoking on uteroplacental 2 oxygen and blood flow? 3 A. Okay. There was an article which was 4 quoted in Dr. Sachs' deposition, and specifically it 12:25:00 5 was an article by Peter Soothill who at that 6 particular time was in Charles Rodeck's department 7 at Queen Charlotte's Hospital, and he is since at 8 his own institution, which is at Bristol. 9 Peter, in that particular study, looked at 10 a population of patients having fetal blood sampling 11 for predominantly chromosomal disorders, and they 12 looked at their data from the standpoint of both 13 smokers and nonsmokers, and they found that, in 12:25:30 14 fact, there was an increased quantity of 15 carboxyhemoglobin in that smoking population 16 compared to the nonsmoking. It was about twice 17 that. They found that there was a slight increase 18 in hemoglobin content. They did not measure 19 erythropoietin, but one other study apparently has 20 measured erythropoietin and found a slight increase 21 in smokers. However, they found no change in oxygen 12:26:00 22 content, no change in oxygen characteristics, acid 23 base status stayed the same. They were not been Ln ~ 24 able to pull from -- and Peter's study is the only m ~ 25 one I know that has looked at, if you will, real J 00 97 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 95: ztq82d00
1 issues of what was it about the person that allowed 2 them entrance at the second and the third versus the 3 first, and so those are also confounding variables. 4 But certainly augmentation of nutrition can improve 12:29:30 5 fetal weight in a number of people. Now, the 6 specific WIC I was talking about, I don't remember 7 them talking about cigarette smoking individuals 8 versus nonsmokers. But food intake is important in 9 certain segments of the population. No question 10 about it. 11 Q. Uh-huh. 12 A. But it's not the only factor, and I'm not 13 trying to make it the only factor. 14 Q. Right. What is your understanding that 15 the effect cigarette smoking may have upon the 12:30:00 16 placenta? 17 A. Oh, I think we talked about that earlier. 18 I said that there was -- I may not have said all of Ln ~ ~ 19 this. I said that there was data that suggested ~ m 20 that there was a greater surface area that the ~ ~ I--, 21 placenta has, so that the placenta is larger in its 22 major diameters. It covers a greater surface area. 23 And this data is only from having read and not from 24 having looked at the placenta. There are also 12:30:30 25 changes which have been seen in the placenta which 100 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 96: ztq82d00
1 next topic, the ACOG bulletin states, "There is a 2 consistent association between smoking and lower 3 birth weight in the medical literature supporting a 4 probable causal relationship. This is from a 12:03:30 5 combination of pre-term deliveries of 6 appropriate-weight babies and intrauterine growth 7 retardation of term babies." Do you agree with that 8 statement, Doctor? 9 A. I think that that is a correct statement. 10 And the probable causal, that may be true in this 11 circumstance. But, again, the number of factors 12 that one has to consider is substantial on that 13 issue. But there is no question that there is a 14 negative weight differential with individuals who 12:04:00 15 smoke. 16 Q. As far as the statement about the probable 17 causal relationship, it's your position that that 18 may, in fact, be true. Is that correct? 19 A. Well, that may be true from just the Ln 20 standpoint of the statement. I find the word ~ ~ 21 choices here very interesting, and I find it G J i-+ 22 interesting because you either have a causal °i ~ 23 relationship or you do not. Statistically you've 24 either proven it or you haven't. And so in this 12:04:30 25 circumstance I think the total amount of data, and 83 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 97: ztq82d00
1 could lead; there are a whole host of other factors. 2 Q. But, again, you don't disagree that those 3 are findings consistent with maternal smoking, that 4 being necrosis of the placenta and microinfarcts, 12:32:00 5 among the other things that you've already 6 mentioned? 7 A. Yeah. Those are findings that have been i 8 seen in excess in the population of smokers. Yes. 9 MR. GIBLIN: Let me get this marked. 12:32:30 10 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 11.) 11 Q. Doctor, I'll show you what has been marked 12 as Exhibit Number 11, which is a -- oh, the first 13 couple of pages of the "Robbins Pathology Textbook," 12:33:00 14 and then a few pages of a chapter dealing with 15 environmental and nutritional diseases. Just in 16 general, I'd like for you to look at page 381. Yes, 17 sir, and under tobacco smoking. Again, I'm just 18 going to read this and see what your thoughts are, 12:33:30 19 see if you agree with it, see if it makes sense to 20 you based on your experience and what you've read 21 and your medical training. Ln 22 It starts off, "The adverse consequences r ~ ~ 23 of cigarette smoke totally dwarf those of all the m ~ ~ 24 other pollutants combined. In the United, States w 25 almost 400,000 persons died in 1985 of various 102 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 98: ztq82d00
1 diseases directly attributable to cigarette smoking, 2 representing 21% of all mortality." My question to 3 you is: Does -- do you agree with that? Does that 12:34:00 4 make sense to you, and is this reliable information? 5 A. I -- I know -- I do not have a personal 6 database that I can construct these numbers. I'll 7 accept these as being numbers that I don't really 8 have much qualm about, because if you take a number 9 of the issues we've already talked about today, 10 just -- well, lung cancer, anything else, given the 11 total number of deaths per year in the United 12:34:30 12 States, the 20 percent of all mortality, it may be 13 true. I think it's very important, also, again, 14 talking about is it directly contributable, or is it 15 a risk factor in consideration of other risk 16 factors? I can't disagree with this. 17 Q. If you turn the page, Doctor, there's a 18 sentence there that says, "Active Smoking and 19 Disease." It says, "Mainstream smoke that enters 12:35:00 20 the mouth with each cigarette puff is a veritable 21 quotation, Satanic brew, close quotation." Had you 22 ever seen a statement like that before? Ln ~ ~ 23 A. My -- the answer is no. What I would ~ m ~ ~ 24 consider is that whoever wrote this had a strong co 1P. 25 antitobacco bias, and also had very beautiful 103 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 99: ztq82d00
1 know you agree with this, but I'll read it and just 2 ask you again, do you agree with it? "The unborn 3 child and the infant are also adversely influenced 4 by maternal smoking. Numerous studies have shown a 5 well-defined association between cigarette smoking 12:37:00 6 and an increased incidence of low birth weight, 7 prematurity, spontaneous abortion, stillbirths and 8 infant mortality. Furthermore, there is a 9 strong" -- "furthermore, there are strong 10 suggestions that smoking increases the likelihood of 11 some complications of pregnancy, such as abruptio 12 placentae, placenta previa and premature rupture of 13 the membranes." 14 A. Well, we've talked about that, and there 15 are many of those that that association has been 12:37:30 16 seen. 17 Q. And I take it essentially you agree with 18 that, with the exception of the premature rupture of 19 membranes? That -- 20 A. Yes. 21 Q. Okay. 22 A. We've talked about that. 23 Q. Right. You had mentioned that you've got Ln ~ J ~ m _J OD m 24 the Surgeon General reports over there. Rather than 12:38:00 25 trying to go through these page and line, my 105 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 are similar to changes in the placentas of 2 individuals who are nonsmokers and who have had 3 hypoxic conditions. So, if you will, vesidual 4 changes and both internal changes within the villus 5 and the villus vessels and so forth. I can't go 6 through a list of all of those things. Some of them 7 have been villus edema. As an example of a 8 hypoxic-associated finding within the placenta. So 12:31:00 9 there have been changes demonstrated in individuals 10 who smoke compared to individuals who do not smoke 11 at similar levels. 12 Q. Right. Smokers -- 13 A. So -- 14 Q. I'm sorry. Go ahead. 15 A. No -- so that there have been observed 16 changes. And so, again, smoking is a risk factor 17 for the placenta. 18 Q. Okay. Necrosis has been seen, 19 microinfarcts have been seen -- 12:31:30 20 A. Yes. 21 Q. -- in the placentas of smokers versus Ln ~ 22 nonsmokers. And those being two things that J F-' 23 obviously lead to the -- or that can lead to the m ~ ~ 00 24 development of an abruptio placenta? N 25 A. It's -- those would be two factors that 101 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 A. I don't know that as a fact, but I could 2 assume that that probably is true. I have not read 3 the frontispiece to indicate all of the various 4 people contributing toward it. 5 Q. Uh-huh. 6 A. But certainly they are a part of the 7 Surgeon General's organization, if you will. 8 Q. Just looking at the front cover, if you 9 will, Doctor, it says CDC. 10 A. CDC. 12:42:30 11 Q. Center for -- 12 A. Correct. 13 Q. The CDC, they are a group of, I guess, 14 highly qualified people in their specialties. Is 15 that a fair statement? 16 A. I think -- certainly using a far greater 17 than 50 percent, yes. 18 Q Oka Ln . y. ~ -! 19 A. Maybe 99.9 percent. They may have a bad F+ m 20 apple or two but pretty good J ~ , . ~ m 21 Q. And it could be regarded, I take it, that 22 the results of their work would be something that 23 would be reliable and could be relied upon by 12:43:00 24 physicians and general public? 25 A. I think that that statement would have to 109 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 common denominator, i.e. Ebola virus causing African 2 hemorrhagic fever in the original 1976, 1977 3 outbreak in that area, and various others. An 12:41:00 4 example, also, would be in New Mexico in the Four 5 Corners area, the outbreak of the rodent fever 6 approximately -- what -- four or five years ago now. 7 Q. Uh-huh. 8 A. Which killed a number of people because of 9 the increase in rodent population. Actually, I 10 think it was ground squirrel population because 11 their natural predators had been killed off or 12 removed. And so they investigate, evaluate and try 13 to improve health by getting to the roots of the 14 disorder. 12:41:30 15 They also maintain Ebola virus and 16 probably a number of other -- I know they do -- 17 class 4 agents within the special areas within the 18 CDC, and they use those for research, try to obtain 19 treatment, and so forth.

1 However, you're not comparing it necessarily to your 2 standard comparison population, which would be a 3 simultaneous black population where the relative 4 risk of low birth weight is at least 1.8 to two 5 times the Caucasian population in many different 6 studies. That may or may not be how that particular 7 figure was acquired. 8 Q. Yeah. Blacks have smaller babies, just in 9 general. Right? 10 A. Yes. 11 Q. Okay. 12 A. And that's been consistent in multiple 13 different countries. 14 Q. Right. 15 A. And parts of this country and 16 populations. But not only smaller, but if you look 17 at a true gestational age, construct it, they have a 18 higher incidence of not only low birth weight 19 babies, but pre-term babies. And that's why 20 definitions and, again, your comparison populations 21 are very critical. So I don't know if that's how 12:24:00 22 they got that number. I would hope that they didn't 12:24:30 23 get it that way, because that would not be Ln 24 appropriate use of your population statistics. ~ 25 Q. Okay.

I'd like for you to take a 13 look at each stack. Each stack has been marked, 14 Doctor, and we're going to try to keep them 15 together. 16 A. Okay. 17 Q.

1 cigarette smoking that caused the small fetus, or 2 was it the fact that they had severe asthma, which 3 in and of itself is significantly associated with 4 small-for-dates fetuses. Those are the only two 5 people that I could even come close to saying that 6 it was certainly a risk factor, but -- in 7 identifying, going back to your very -- the earliest 8 part of this question. Nobody else. 9 Q. And that patient, the one that kept 12:46:30 10 smoking and had asthma, it could be said that 11 smoking was a cause, asthma was a cause? 12 A. Yes. And she also -- the specific patient 13 I am recalling also had a drug dependency, and 14 specifically certain barbiturates which she was 15 ingesting and nutrition was a component of her 16 particular process. And here is a very asthenic 17 person who almost looked like any of the -- let's 12:47:00 18 just call it negative food addiction problems, 19 anorexia nervosa, et cetera. And so with her, an 20 even more complex circumstance. Because I'm not 21 sure that she ate and ate properly, and all of those 22 were discussed at that particular point with her, 23 but I changed her behavior only from the standpoint 24 I would not write scrips for her medication. 25 MR.

1 Q. Okay. 2 A. There is a separate book which is -- in 3 fact, it has a separate component of the 1990 4 Surgeon General's report. It has Exhibit 5 on it, 5 and it is specifically pages 367 to 423. This is 13:00:30 6 chapter 8 from the book, "Smoking Cessation and 7 Reproduction," and they discuss a lot of the things 8 that we've discussed here this morning. 9 Q. Anything on those few pages that you 10 disagree with? That's a big question, huh? 11 A. Well, if we go back to the one thing that 12 we've talked about, the issue of premature rupture 13 of membranes, that would be one of those things, 13:01:00 14 since they say in there that there's -- I won't say 15 clear, but there is an association. And I'm not 16 sure that there really is, but that. In this I have 17 underlined some specific things, and also I've made Ln J 18 some notes in various parts of the margin, and so m 19 you can you can see those as they present J ~ 20 themselves. m 21 The next is what was Sachs Exhibit 14, and 22 apparently this is some of the same information from 23 the different volumes of this; that's why I put it 13:01:30 24 into this stack. The only writing that I am aware 25 of that I have done on this is at the top put 115 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 Surgeon General's Reports and Exhibits, and then put 2 Dr. Sachs's name. But this is Exhibit 14 to his 3 deposition. 4 Q. And that -- 5 A. Whether this is the Mississippi or the 6 Florida deposition, I don't know. I can't tell you 7 that. 8 Q. Okay. 9 A. The next is a set of bound documents. 10 There is not an identifier as to whether this was an 13:02:00 11 exhibit or not; I suspect it is. But it's a 12 specific section from wherever the source is and it 13 talks about "Pregnancy and Infant Health." There 14 were several things in going through this that I 15 have underlined, and so it is different from all of 16 these others that have not been underlined. 17 Q. Can -- 18 A. So that is that first stack. 19 Q. Can you recall anything specific about 20 that document here, "Pregnancy and Infant Health," 21 Doctor, that you relied upon in this case? 13:02:30 22 A. Oh, I didn't rely upon it. I read it and Ln ~ 23 I'm sure I agreed and disagreed with some specific ~ m 24 components of it, but I certainly can't pull that ~ 25 from memory.

1 command of grammar and the capability to use that 12:35:30 2 grammar. 3 Q. Do you feel that based on his command of 4 the grammar that that's a pretty apt description of 5 cigarette smoke, a "Satanic brew"? 6 A. Personal, nonscientific, yeah, I think 7 that's a -- I find it noxious. 8 Q. Cigarette smoke contains something like -- 9 what -- 4,000 compounds? 12:36:00 10 A. I've seen 2,000 to 2,500, but I won't 11 disagree with 4,000. 12 Q. Okay. 13 A. I don't know what it is; it's just a 14 b h unc . 15 Q. Do you know how many of -- or have you 16 heard or have you read -- how many of the 2,000 or 17 2,500 or 4,000, whatever many it may be, how many of 18 those compounds have been determined to be cancer 19 causing? 20 A. There are a number of ones which are 21 stated to be carcinogens, yes. How many, I have no 22 idea, and I'm glad I do not have that in my brain. 12:36:30 23 Q.

1 question to you is: Do you recall the -- oh, I 2 guess conclusions, if you will, that were reached in 3 the 1990 Surgeon General report with regard to 4 maternal smoking? 5 A. I'm sorry... 6 Q. That's tough, because I can't recall them, 7 either, and I've read them repeatedly. 8 A. I -- no. 9 Q. Okay. 10 A. That whole section has got to be at least 11 30 or 40 pages, if I remember correctly, and it may 12 be longer than that. I think their basic summation 13 was get people to stop smoking while they're 14 pregnant. 15 Q. And you agree with that? 16 A. No question. Absolutely. 17 Q. All right. What is the CDC? 18 A. Center for Disease Control, and actually 19 it's no longer called the CDC. 20 Q. What - 21 A. It has new initials, and I can't recall -- 22 Center for Disease Control -- no, the initials are 23 the same, they've changed the names for the 24 initials, thanks to Mr. Reagan and Bush, I believe. 25 Q. Are there -- they're headquartered in KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 12:38:30 12:39:00 106

1 A. Requested because it was one of Sachs' 2 exhibits. 3 Q. Well, is it a reliable -- I mean, is it a 4 good study, in your opinion? The analysis, the 5 meta-analysis? 6 A. Meta-analyses can be both good and not so 7 good. There is so much information in here I'm 13:07:00 8 not -- to use the word "good," he tries to do a good 9 thing; I think in many.ways he probably has 10 accomplished such from a statistical construct -- I 11 will try to answer that question, because I don't 12 think I can, because I have never tried to do a 13 meta-analysis, and they -- you have to be as careful 14 as we have talked about confounders and 15 multifactorial analysis and such. 16 If you're doing a meta-analysis you have 17 to be very careful, also, in the articles you choose 18 that those particular articles are also comparable, 13:07:30 19 and -- or I should say the original study, study 20 design and analysis are comparable. Because 21 otherwise you get into the issue of apples and 22 oranges, and at least from what I could determine 23 from the article, he tried to do a good job of 24 sorting out those that he thought -- I think the 25 term that he used was "successfully met" his 13:08:00 120 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 111: ztq82d00
1 criteria for analysis, and then there was another 2 term which was "did not meet," which partially met 3 his criteria so that they could be assessed, and 4 then there were a whole bunch of other articles in 5 any given area which he could not utilize in trying 6 to tabulate. So I think he tried to use appropriate 7 statistical methods. The information, though, is 8 very similar to the information which, again, we've 9 discussed this morning in many different ways, and 13:08:30 10 certainly I did not memorize 80 pages of detailed 11 data. 12 Q. Okay. 13 A. The third article, which was one of the 14 Sachs exhibits, is by Ian D. McIntosh, "Smoking and 15 Pregnancy, Attributable Risk and Public Health 16 Implications," Canadian Journal of Public Health, 17 volume 75, March/April 1984, pages 141 to 148. 18 Q. Do you agree with that article, with 13:09:00 19 whatever conclusions were reached in there? Do you 20 agree with them? 21 A. I -- it's part of the totality of 22 information which I now have been exposed to both in 23 this acute past time frame as well as in the remote 24 past. And I cannot pull specific things in my head 25 to be able to say, did this -- I don't think this 121 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 112: ztq82d00
1 A. Okay. 2 Q. It states, "Smokers have a 3.5 - 4.0-fold 3 increase in small-for-gestational-age infants 12:14:30 4 compared with nonsmokers." 5 A. That's the highest relative risk I have 6 seen in any of the publications, any of the 7 tabulations. The Attorney General's -- not the 8 Attorney General's. The... 9 Q. The Surgeon General? 10 A. Surgeon General's various publications. I 11 have never seen one that high, and I don't know what 12 the reference is. That's a high figure. 13 Q. Okay. 14 A. Because most of the figures I have seen 15 have ranged from 1.4 to 1.8 in a multitude of 12:15:00 16 different studies for the small for gestational 17 age. And then one of the other things -- and again 18 going back from the standpoint of stratification, cn 19 one has to be very, very careful. What are they ~ 20 calling small for gestational age? Are they talking J 1-+ 21 about term babies who are specifically really small 22 for gestational age? Did they consider in that 23 population true population controls, meaning 24 individuals of same socioeconomic or different 12:15:30 25 socioeconomic classes and issues of ethnic origin? 91 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 113: ztq82d00
1 A. But they have been admitted into evidence 2 in the Florida case as Sachs exhibits, and so I will 3 leave it at that. 4 Q. Okay. Have you read this stuff? 5 6 7 8 A. Q. A. Q. Yes. Okay. I didn't memorize it. Have you -- the Florida statistical 3:11:00 9 information, have you looked at that? 10 A. Oh, I went through all of that, and it was 11 very interesting, because it was interesting from 12 the standpoint of that they apparently have a very, 13 very good means within Florida of looking at 14 epidemiologic surveillance of their pregnant 15 population. They use their birth certificate data. 16 And I know Texas has -- I don't know how close, how 17 similar it is -- but certainly Texas has similar 13:11:30 18 birth certificates, in the sense that you can get 19 whether they have been exposed to intravenous drug 20 abuse, whether they have had cigarette smoking, 21 whether they've been a drinker. Now, how reliable 22 the data is, that's a different issue. But at least 23 the basic sheet for acquiring the information is 24 there. 25 Q. Did you review this analysis that was 123 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 114: ztq82d00
1 Q. Okay. 2 A. Then the next three are specific papers 3 which were referred to and, in fact, are exhibits 4 within Sachs' deposition; they are not labeled as 5 such here. The first would be Mary Meyer, Bruce S. 6 Jonas, James A. Tonascia, T-O-N-A-S-C-I-A, the 7 American Journal of Epidemiology, volume 103, pages 13:05:30 8 464 -- 9 Q. Anything significant in there? 10 A. -- dash 476 for 1976. It talks about 11 perinatal events associated with maternal smoking 12 during pregnancy. It goes over a lot of the similar 13 things that we've discussed. 13:06:00 14 Q. Okay. 15 A. The next article -- and I had asked for 16 these because, again, they were part of the exhibits 17 and I wanted to read them. The next is a bulletin 18 of the World Health Organization, volume 65, issue Ln ~_4 _j ~ 19 5, pages 663-737, 1987, written by M.S. Kramer, m 20 "Determinants of Low Birth Weight: Methodological ~ N m m 21 Assessment and Meta-analysis." And he covers some 22 900-plus articles that were reviewed and discussed, 23 921 publications and 895 are actually used. 13:06:30 24 Q. Was that a document that you requested, 25 Doctor? 119 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 115: ztq82d00
1 Atlanta. Is that correct? 2 A. Correct. 3 Q. Are there other branch offices around the 4 country, or is it pretty much a-- 5 A. They have epidemiology field officers who 6 are stationed in different places. I'll assume that 7 that means that they have branches in other place, 12:39:30 8 but that's not -- people are assigned different 9 places. 10 Q. What does the CDC do? What's their 11 f ti ? unc on 12 A. Oh. The Center for Disease Con trol is a 13 group of medical scientists in different 14 persuasions, both M.D. as well as Ph.D. They have 15 various degrees and training in microbiology, 16 virology, I'm sure toxicology. There are 12:40:00 17 pathologists within that, there are veterinarians. 18 They are responsible for the identification of Ln ~ 19 outbreaks -- correction. Following the v m 20 identification of outbreaks of unusual processes, ~ 21 the CDC epidemiologic field officers are frequently co co 22 called in, both within this country and without this 23 country to investigate and to try to establish 12:40:30 24 patterns of disease and to evaluate all aspects of 25 that disease process to try to come down to a final KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108 107

1 deposition. 2 Q. Okay. This is marked Exhibit 7, and I 3 think -- 4 A. Oh. Okay. 5 Q. Let me see if I can reconstruct this. 13:13:00 6 Would you set that down for a second, please? I 7 think this is 5 that we've kept out, and the rest is 8 7. 9 A. I apologize. 10 Q. That's no problem. 11 A. Okay. Now we're at Exhibit 6. 12 Q. Who provided those things? 13 A. The attorneys for the defense. 14 Q. Okay. 15 A. Okay. And there are actually two 16 different pages here, but they actually include the 13:13:30 17 16 -- 18 THE VIDEOGRAPHER: Put your microphone on, 19 i r. s 20 THE WITNESS: Thank you. Ln r 21 A. There are 15 papers that are referenced in J ~ m 22 here, including some of the ones that we previously J N B 0) 23 talked about today such as Naeye's, "Disorders of 24 the Placenta," chapter 5 and so forth. There were 25 two of the references which I have not been able to 13:14:00 125 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 117: ztq82d00
1 find, specifically number 8 and number 9. I have 2 checked all of those references which I have found 3 within this information, and so they are listed that 4 way. And I don't believe that there are any 5 other -- Peter Soothill's article, I think, I 6 included and put in here, because it actually came 7 as an exhibit within Sachs, and I think several of 8 the different papers in here were papers that were 13:14:30 9 from Sachs that I just put in this since these are 10 predominantly scientific papers, as opposed to the 11 other stack of papers. 12 Q. Okay. Do all the documents or papers 13 contained there in Exhibit 6, do the conclusions 14 reached in those papers support your opinions in 15 this case? 16 A. We've talked about the issue -- because 17 most of these articles in here are some of the 18 articles talking about premature ruptured membranes, 19 they talk about low birth weight, similar to the 13:15:00 20 other documents that we've talked about today. 21 Would they 22 support it 23 dead horse 24 Q. 25 A. support it? Yeah, I think they would in the sense as -- not wanting to beat a again -- No, all I want to know -- Okay. 126 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 be modified by important contributors, and the 2 contributors is the issue of politics. And I think 3 the best example of that is the failure of the U.S. 4 Government to intervene in blood banking in the 5 early 1980s with respect to HIV, when the CDC had 6 clear and unequivocal evidence. And so, no, the 7 government does not necessarily always produce valid 12:43:30 8 data, because it is subject to political intonation 9 which is not acceptable from a medical or a 10 scientific standpoint. 11 Q. So -- 12 A. But in general, if you have their pure 13 conclusions without the political overtones, their 14 data would be quite reliable in almost all 15 circumstances. 16 Q. Do you feel that their data is reliable on 17 the issue of maternal smoking and adverse pregnancy 18 outcomes? 19 A. Within the construct of all of the things 20 that we've talked about today, the relative risks, 12:44:00 21 the associations, absence of, if you will, causation 22 in the way we've talked about it, yes, I think that 23 that data is there. They have not been the ones 24 doing most of the research; they have some of it, 25 I'm sure, but a lot of it comes from other places. 110 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 important to you, what's significant about it, and 12:59:00 2 keep on going until you're done with the stack. 3 A. Okay. Well, this first set -- and I 4 really don't think you need to duplicate it, but if 5 you want to that's your choice. 6 Q. Who provided -- you may need to put your 7 microphone on there, Doctor. 8 A. I apologize. I took that off, and should 9 h t ave no . 10 Q. If you could tell us who provided the 11 documents to you, also, that would help. 12 A. The attorneys for the defense gave these 12:59:30 13 to me at my request. They are the 1964, the 1973, 14 the 1980. There is a 1989 report of the Surgeon 15 General, also, and then the 1990 report of the 16 Surgeon General. So all of these bound volumes here 17 are those particular documents. They have not been 18 changed by me. I've made neither no additions nor 13:00:00 19 subtractions from it. 20 Q.

Okay. 7 A. Okay. 13:15:30 8 Q. You're going to get your workout here 9 today. 10 A. The last stack, which is labeled Exhibit 11 8, are a number of things.

It 14 starts -- it actually has a number 7, 3 2, 33, 43, 13:16:00 15 60, 73, and 80. And I'll not read into the record 16 what those and whose names are there. There is -- 17 Q. You mentioned earlier, Doctor, that you 18 knew one of the State of Texas experts, Dr. Michael 19 Speer. Ln N J ~ 20 A. Yes. m 21 Q. Are there any other State of Texas experts J N B OD 22 whom you know? 23 A. No, there is nobody else here that I know, 24 know in the sense of personal relationships and 13:16:30 25 personal knowledge, no. Benjamin Sachs only from 127 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 what I have read in the past in literature and only 2 in respect to the information that we've discussed 3 today. 4 Q. Okay. 5 A. The next is a set of information which 6 goes back a number of years up toward the present, 7 but not including 19 -- like '94 plus. And these 8 include -- there is a 1995-1996 Texas Health State 9 Plan, there is a Medicaid Fiscal Year 1992 Annual 13:17:00 10 Hospital Discharge Report. There is a 1990 Texas 11 Medicaid Hospital Discharge Report, 1989 of the 12 same. There is a 1991-1992 Texas State Health Plan; 13 it's labeled volume 1. There is a 1980 Data Summary 14 of a whole host of different public health issues. 13:17:30 15 There is from the Department of Health and Human 16 Services and CDC Texas 1996 Demographic Statistics. 17 There is 1987-1988 Texas Health State Plans. There 18 is a Demographic Factors Affecting Texas, a Special 19 Report of the Senate Research Center, May 1993, 20 which is included. There is 1993-94 Texas State 13:18:00 21 Health Plan. 22 There is from December 1993 from John N ~ ~ 23 Sharp's office, Medicaid, Where Does it Hurt? There m ~ 24 is a final report to the 72nd Texas legislature from N m 25 the Texas Department of Health dated February 1991. ko 128 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 documents which have been discussed within the Sachs 2 deposition. 3 Q. And they're included in the Exhibit 7 4 batch. Is that correct? 5 A. Yes. 6 Q. Okay. 7 A. The label Exhibit 7 is actually on the 8 deposition of Dr. Jeane A. McCarthy, done March 9 21st, 1997, and that was in the Florida versus the 13:04:00 10 American Tobacco Company case. I have not marked in 11 here; I may or may not have some notes over here in 12 my blue folder. 13 The next is the Sachs depositions done -- 14 the first one of which is November 22, 1996, volume 15 1, pages 1 through 262. There is a continuation of 16 that, which is volume 2, pages 263-401, March 6th, 13:04:30 17 1997. And that was entitled, Moore versus American 18 Tobacco Company. That's also in Exhibit 7. 19 The next is the State of Florida versus 20 the American Tobacco Company. It is volume 1, pages 21 1-236, and I never saw a second set or a volume 2 of 22 this. If it exists, I have not seen it. So I 13:05:00 23 will -- ~ 24 Q. You've read those depositions, Doctor? J ~ 25 A. Yes. m J F-+ ~ ~D 118 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 changed my mind about anything. It's a different -- a different way of looking at it, because he tries to use the epidemiologist's technique, where -- looking at attributable risk. What percentage of the population that may be exposed to a given circumstance, in this particular situation smoking, may have actually had their disease process because of smoking. And whether that is good statistical technique and the rest, again, I'm going to leave that for others to discuss. I think it's much more appropriate. Q. Okay. 13:09:30 :10:00 13 A. And then there a-e a number of other 14 things, and these were under a letterhead from, I 15 will assume, a law firm, Ness, Motley, Loadholt, 16 Richardson and Poole. Almost all of these are 17 labeled with some either Sachs or a Sachs plus a 18 number, and this is all stuff that is from -- a lot 19 of this stuff is from the Florida deposition, and 20 includes Florida vital statistics, some articles by 13:10:30 21 epidemiologists, public health people within the ~ 22 state department of public health in Florida I'm N . ~ ~ 23 not going to read all of those unless you want those m ~ 24 read as individual things.

1 There is a 1990 Texas Survey of Postpartum Women and 2 Drug-Exposed Infants dated June 1991. There 13:18:30 3 is -- and this is from a book, apparently. The 4 Financing of Maternity Care in the United States 5 from the Alan Guttmacher Institute, and the 6 pages -- consecutive pages 59 through 73. There is 7 from the Texas Department of Health 1990-91, and 13:19:00 8 it's labeled, Expanding Knowledge, Pursuing 9 Excellence, a Collection of Published Papers by the 10 Texas Department of Public -- correction. Texas 11 Department of Health Staff. 12 There is then a report, Texas Healthy 13:19:30 13 People 2000. Health status Indicators, 1980-1993 by 14 race and ethnicity prepared by the Texas Department 15 of Health. There is a similar report, Indicators, 16 1980-1992, and that is dated September 1994. The 17 previous document is dated April 19, 1995, or at 18 least the cover letter is. And that's all of that 13:20:00 19 particular -- 20 Q. Okay. 21 A. -- Exhibit 8. Ln ~ 22 Q Oka What I'd like to do is mark this _j . y. ~ m 23 stack with another exhibit number. Leave that 8. ~ N 24 A. Okay. 6 25 Q.

1 because that is some Texas specific statistics. 2 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 12.) 13:20:30 3 Q. Doctor, we have now marked as Exhibit 12 4 the various Texas specific documents on Medicaid, 5 documents from the Department of Health. My 6 question is: Were these furnished by the tobacco 7 companies to you? 8 A. Yes, they were. 9 Q. Okay. 10 A. And they have not been able to provide me 11 data which I've also asked for. I have asked for a 12 complete breakdown of statistical data based on 13:21:00 13 birth certificates with -- cross linking with all 14 neonatal and fetal death certificates, as well as 15 all birth certificates for the years 1990 to 1996, 16 with comparisons between the upper half of the birth 17 certificate and then the lower half demographic 23 24 database. Because that data has within it the Ln issues that we've talked about today ~ . ~ Q. Okay. ~ m ~ A. A multitude of different issues. N r ~ Q. A. We're going to get to that in a minute. Oh. 13:21:30 Q. Because that's in your report. I have a 25 couple more questions about that information in 130 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 126: ztq82d00
1 So what I have seen has been relatively consistent. 2 Q. We talked earlier, briefly, about the type 3 of patients that you actually treat. 12:44:30 4 A. Yes. 5 Q. Being high risk -- high risk patients that 6 have got some rather serious problems on board 7 already before they get to you. My question to you 8 is: In your practice have you had occasion to 9 diagnose an adverse pregnancy outcome in one of your 10 patients due to the patient's refusal to quit 12:45:00 11 smoking during her pregnancy? 12 A. No, not that I can recall, even either 13 from my private practice -- either from my private 14 practice patients or within the county system, 15 because frequently you may have written down that a 16 patient smokes but, if you will, doing the 17 epidemiologic evaluation to try to determine whether 18 that is a significant cause in a significant 12:45:30 19 patient, I have not done that. I have had several 20 patients, specifically with asthma, who smoked. I 21 cannot -- and it's been a good while; a long time. 22 I believe the outcome of those pregnancies were 23 good, although the children were small. But I was 24 not -- be able to segregate out in that specific - 25 those two particular persons the issue of was it the 12:46:00 111 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 127: ztq82d00
1 performed by Gerry Oster? 2 A. I looked at that, yes. 3 Q. Any criticisms about that? 4 A. I would have to go line by line and the 13:12:00 5 rest, and I -- 6 Q. Okay. 7 A. I don't think we need to do that. You 8 haven't asked me -- I was very surprised. You 9 haven't asked about the word "authoritative" today, 10 and just as -- I would have told you if you had 11 asked, just as books are not authoritative in 12 meaning that they are true and that God would 13 believe everything in them, neither are many papers 14 and statistical analysis. It's -- and so we can go 15 from there . 13:12:30 16 Q. And that was all stack 5? 17 A. That was Exhibit 5, correct -- oops. Yes, 18 that's Exhibit 5 which, again, is Sachs and so 19 forth. 20 Q. I think -- I'm not sure about that, 21 Doctor. If we could -- Ln ~ ~ 22 A. Oh. Did I pick up -- m J 23 Q. I think -- yes. N Ln 24 A. That was a deposition -- yeah -- no, that 25 was in stack 5, also. That was Dr. McCarthy's 124 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 128: ztq82d00
1 Q. Okay. 2 A. Now, if you really want those duplicated, 3 that's fine, because they don't -- I'm not sure you 4 need to have all of these, unless -- 5 Q. No. With regard to these documents, all 6 we're going to want attached will be the -- 7 A. The face sheets, or -- 13:03:00 8 Q. Well -- 9 A. I'll let you-all do that. I'm sorry. 10 Q. Will be the Sachs exhibit, then this other 11 bound chapter titled "Pregnancy and Infant Health," 12 then the few pages from the Surgeon General's 13 report, I guess, of 1990 that you've got glued 14 together. 15 A. Okay. 16 Q. We're not interested in the -- 17 A. Okay. 18 Q. -- actual Surgeon General reports. 19 A. I am going to move these over and out of 20 the way. 21 MS. COLSON: Here. You want me to hand 22 them to you? 13:03:30 23 THE WITNESS: That's why I took it off 24 awhile ago. Ln ~ ~ 25 A. Okay. The next set of documents are 6 _1 117 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 129: ztq82d00
1 the Medicaid payback portion would be or anything 2 like that. Is that correct? 3 A. I have not been asked, nor do I expect to 4 be asked, nor have I done freely on my own. 5 Q. Okay. 6 A. And I won't. 7 Q. I believe we also had your file, Doctor -- 8 A. Yes. 13:27:30 9 Q. -- marked as an exhibit, marked as 10 Exhibit -- 11 A. Oh. There was one other -- there was one 12 thing in this blue file here, which actually belongs 13 in Dr. Sachs' stack, whichever number that is, 5, 14 maybe, I guess, or 6. And that was the 1993 number 15 180 ACOG Technical Bulletin, and we've discussed 16 this, basically, because the numbers are very 17 similar. 18 Q. Similar to 1996. Correct? 13:28:00 19 A. Correct. That's what I meant, similar. I 20 should have said 1996. 21 Q. Okay. And they are marked -- which ~ 22 exhibit number is that, Doctor, on the other? I,-- J ~ ~ 23 A. It's Exhibit 4. J N 24 Q. Okay. Exhibit 4, they are your two files , r J 25 two blue files that you have on this case. Is that 136 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 seeing a lot of that similar data in this data set. 2 If it -- it may be there, and I just have put in so 3 much information I don't recall. 13:24:00 4 Q. Doctor, in the Texas case do you plan on 5 testifying on the issue of damages? 6 A. No. 7 Q. Okay. 8 A. At least my understanding of damages would 9 be trying to give some type of proportionality, if 10 you will, trying to say that this weighs so much, 11 and the rest. I don't consider myself financially 12 astute enough to be able to do that. I would think 13 that actuarial statisticians would be the ones who 14 would be able to plug that data in and would be the 13:24:30 15 most appropriate group of people to do that. 16 Q. Just so we're clear on that, you don't 17 plan on devising a model or some equation that'll 18 spit out a number at the end, saying, This is what 19 Texas really spent on Medicaid due to smoking? 20 A. I'll use part of your answer as my cn ~ 21 answer. I do not plan on conceding or executing J F-+ 22 model planning. m J N 23 Q. Well, could you if you were asked? F-~ ~ 24 A. No. 25 Q. If the tobacco company said, Do it, I 133 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 131: ztq82d00
1 mean, could you do it or would you have to defer 13:25:00 2 to -- 3 A. Oh, could I do it? Yes, I think I have 4 the statistical database, I think I have the 5 intellect and I think I have the mathematical skills 6 that would allow me to do that. And what one would 7 have to do is you've got to have good data, and you 8 have to have compartmentalization of that data. You 9 have to stratify and structure your risk factors, 10 and if one uses the attributable risk calculations 13:25:30 11 and so forth, making a basic assumption that because 12 10 percent of the population smokes and has an 13 adverse outcome that -- and making the simple 14 abstracted leap that then 10 percent of the adverse 15 outcome or a relative risk of 1.1 that 10 percent 16 then is the excess rate just because of -- yes, you 17 co ld d it on su h i l th ti l u o mp c s e ma ema ca 18 comparisons. And yeah, I could do it, and I think a 13:26:00 19 number of other people, whether physicians or 20 others, with very reasonable mathematical skills. 21 You would not need to use calculus or any of the Ln 1~ 22 other high-powered math fields. You can do it J m 23 simply. N ~ 24 Q. But you have to -- cn 25 A. But you have to make some -- you have to 134 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 132: ztq82d00
1 incidence of preterm and low birth weight stratified 2 as far as Hispanic, black and Caucasian or, quote, 3 white/nonHispanic -- which is the way they term it 4 in here -- populations, and what you would expect in 5 that population, and the differences between 6 Caucasian -- or correction, white/nonHispanic versus 7 black, and that there, in the State of Texas, is 13:23:00 8 also significant increase incidence of preterm 9 deliveries and low birth weight among the black 10 population, for whatever the specific reasons are. 11 Q. Medicaid statisticwise, Texas is very 12 similar, based on what you've seen, to the state of 13 Florida's statistics. Is that correct? Is that 14 what you just said? 15 A. They may not be -- They're similar; they 16 may not be exactly the same. 17 Q. Right. 18 A. I said the same trends, and if I remember 19 correctly there was, like, a doubling to 2.5 fold 20 increase in the incidence of low birth weight in 13:23:30 21 general in Florida, and I think that was similar in 22 a s Tex wi t h respect to, again, white/nonHispanic N ~ ~ 23 versus black population. I don't recall seeing -- m 24 25 there was a lot of demographic data broken down by smoking in the Florida data. I don't remember -J N I , w 132 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 much more difficult than quitting illicit drugs or 2 alcohol." 3 A. I have seen that comment in other sources, 4 and I think on the basis of my limited knowledge 5 about people who undergo drug treatment programs, I 6 think that that's true. Because you asked me 7 earlier, Is it an addictive drug? Yes, it is an 8 addictive drug. Not smoking; I think nicotine. 13:33:00 9 Q. Nicotine? 10 A. Yes. 11 Q. Smoking being the delivery device for the 12 nicotine, of course? 13 A. No. Smoking being the act of the use of 14 the delivery device -- 15 Q. There you go. Ln ~ 16 A. -- the cigarette. Correct. J ~ 17 Q. Much better stated. m J 8 . hank you. N N N 19 Q. I would like to get this marked and a copy 20 of it made. 13:33:30 21 (Deposition exhibit marked, Exhibit 13.) 22 Q. Doctor, what we've done, we've marked the 23 boo k that you've provided here, "The Future of 13:34:00 24 Chi ldren," as Exhibit 13 to the deposition, and 25 we' re goin g to attach a copy of that. 140 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 correct? 2 A. Yes. Actually, it's one file. I have a 3 simple folder, and it has on the left-hand side the 4 business cards of the various attorneys I have met 5 with and talked to that I am aware of. Maybe 13:28:30 6 there's additional, and I'm -- but that's as good as 7 I can say. There is, starting from the very back, a 8 9 number of letters of transmission of various information and so forth, which will stand as 10 they -- they are September 9 -- correction. June 11 9, June 9, June 12th. There is a June 13th fax, 12 which was one of the same letters, and I have since 13 discarded the fax since the hard copy came. 13:29:00 14 There is one, June 18th. The June 18th 15 I'm sure had some of these documents present. The 16 next part is a one-page abstraction of some 17 components of the deposition testimony of Jeane 18 McCarthy done on March 21st, 1997. There is -- 19 there are a total of four pages from the two 20 different Sachs -- I should say three different 13:29:30 21 Sachs depositions; part 1, part 2 for Mississippi, 22 part 1 for Florida, and they are here. And then Ln ~ ~ ~ 23 last the front sheet of this is the time record for m _j 24 law case review that I try to maintain That is N ~ . 00 25 present inside a drop file, because that's how I 137 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 135: ztq82d00
1 risk factors, prematurity, and so forth. 2 Q. Do you generally agree with what's 3 contained in here, in this book? 13:31:30 4 A. Many of the things in there are 5 straightforward, standard medical details of 6 medicine, which I have seen in the past and which 7 are considered to be reasonably true. That should 8 not be construed that everything that's said in 9 there -- because I don't remember everything that's 10 said in there -- that all of it is 100 percent 11 true. I don't -- I can't say that. But, yes, there 12 is a lot of information that I would consider to be 13 lid va . 14 Q. Okay. Looking at page 11, Doctor, at the 15 top it says, "While there are several things women 13:32:00 16 can do to reduce their chances of having a low birth 17 weight infant, one action stands out above all 18 others -- stop smoking cigarettes." ~ ~ ~ ~ 19 A. I would agree with that. m ~ 20 Q. Look further down on the same page. it N N m 21 states, "Smoking is not a casual activity that can 22 be easily stopped at will; it is a powerful 23 addiction. The addictive powers of nicotine are 13:32:30 24 illustrated in the results of a survey of drug 25 addicts who reported that quitting cigarettes was 139 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 136: ztq82d00
1 whole -- the whole document. I would consider that 2 to be additive or understood that that was a factor. 3 Q. I see. I apologize. And I'm -- when I 4 read your first sentence here I thought that you 5 were making the statement that, you know, maternal 6 smoking has been reported to be associated with 7 adverse pregnancy outcomes, but that was something 8 you didn't agree with. 13:36:00 9 A. Oh, no. I agree with that. 10 Q. Okay. 11 A. I think I've stated that multiple times 12 today. 13 Q. You have. 14 A. I want everybody to stop smoking in 15 pregnancy, period. And if, in fact, cigarettes were 16 banned tomorrow by fiat of God, that would be okay 17 with me. 18 Q. I understand, Doctor. In the next 19 section, Doctor, you're talking about risk factors 13•36:30 20 for pregnant women on Medicaid? Ln ~ 21 A. Yes. ~ ~ 22 Q. And, again, you listed here as common and a ~ N 23 important risk factors in this population include N W 24 inadequate prenatal care, young maternal age, low 25 maternal weight, obesity, poor diet, abuse of 13: 37:00 142 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 137: ztq82d00
1 premature," et cetera, et cetera, "and are not 2 counseled about" -- and smoking is included there. 3 So -- 4 Q. Okay. 5 A. -- it v ery clearly -- 6 Q. What we could have done here, I guess, 7 then, if we went back to the first sentence in your 8 report, what we could rewrite this to say is, 9 Maternal smoking during pregnancy is reported, 10 comma, and I agree, to be associated with blah, blah 11 blah. Because you agree that it is, in fact, 13:38:30 12 purported to be associated with all these things 13 that we are talking about in the report. Correct? 14 A. Yes. 15 Q. Okay. The section on demographics of 16 pregnant women on Medicaid in Texas. Now, we've 17 talked about this. I think we've already explored 18 the word "m ay" there. That was initially a problem 19 I had, because it says you may comment. But as we 20 sit here today, you're not planning on commenting 13:39:00 21 and you're - 22 A Oh if I'm rovided the information and I Ln ~ . , p ~ ~ 23 look at the data, then I'll respond to any m ~ 24 question. I don't have the information N N . Ln 25 Q. I see. 144 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 138: ztq82d00
1 A. Okay. The only thing I would ask on 2 these, if I could just get those back relatively 3 soon as opposed to later, although I know that 4 technically trial is not until sometime in 5 September, but I would just like to try to keep my 6 files intact. 7 Q. She'll take care of you. 8 A. I understand that. 9 Q. I'd like to -take a look at your report, 10 Doctor. 13:34:30 11 A. Okay. 12 Q. And, again, we have pretty much covered 13 everything that you've got in here, I think, already 14 at this point in time. Again, your first 15 paragraph -- not paragraph, your first section of 16 the report -- we've got four paragraphs -- you talk 17 about, in the third paragraph, excuse me, about on 13:35:00 18 line three you talked about the common risk factors 19 for pregnant complications, and you list poor 20 reproductive history, restricted fetal growth, Ln ~ J ~ 21 maternal medical problems, various placental m J 22 problems. Wouldn't you agree that smoking should N N N 23 have been also included in there as one of the more 24 common risk factors for pregnancy complications? 25 A. I have that in the first sentence of the 13:35:30 141 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108
Page 139: ztq82d00
1 make some very simple, basic assumptions, though, 2 which may or may not be appropriate. And, no, I 3 have not done that, and I'm not planning. I've 4 never been asked to do that. If somebody asked me 5 to do it, yeah, I'd do it, but you may have people 13:26:30 6 who would be able to do it more precisely than I -- 7 or than me. Excuse me. 8 Q. I assume that if you did that, if you were 9 asked to do that, you would generate a supplemental ? 10 report 11 A. That would be required, I believe, under 12 normal -- at least Texas rules. I don't know about 13 all of the federal rules, because there's 14 differences, but I would assume that federal rules 15 would be the same thing. 16 Q. As we sit here today -- 17 A. No. I don't plan on do ing it. 18 Q. Okay. 19 A. I have not been asked t o do it, and I 20 don't expect to be asked. I'm sorry I interrupted 13:27:00 21 your question, but I hope that -- Ln 22 Q. No, that's okay.

1 because I'm not responsible for that. 2 Q. Okay. 3 A. But, yes, I would like to have the data, 4 because I think you can only function in an 5 epidemiologic, statistical and clinical scenario of 6 looking at risk if you have data. 7 Q. Do you -- 8 A. If you have no data you can make all of 9 the allegations you want to, but it doesn't make it 10 true. 13:46:00 11 Q. Do you even know whether or not it's been 12 requested from my client, the State of Texas? 13 A. I have asked that several times. I have 14 been told, yes, it has been. I haven't seen the 15 data yet, and so -- what I was told, I believe 16 yesterday, when the last time I asked the question 17 was, that supposedly it's supposed to be given as - 18 you have a deadline of August 15th for your client Ln ~ 19 to provide the data to you so you can provide it to J m 20 other parties.

Could I take a look at 5 your file for a second, please, sir? 6 A. Yes, sir. 7 Q. Thank you. 8 Doctor, you mentioned this book. 9 A. Yes. 10 Q. "The Future of Children." I take it this 11 is something that you regard as being a reliable 12 publication on the area of low birth weight. Is 13 that -- 14 A. Not necessarily. I had it 15 Q. Okay. 13:30:30 16 A. -- in my library at home. I knew where it 17 was and I knew that I had looked at it before, and 18 so over the course of the last week, and 19 specifically about 48 to 72 hours ago, I pulled it 13:31:00 20 down and went through and there were a number of 21 articles in there -- there are a significant number 22 of articles that, in fact, pertain to low birth Ln ~-4 23 weight.

Correct. 7 Oh, and this is something that I'll just 8 give it to you, and I'm sure others may consider it 9 in subsequent situations. It's very interesting in 13:50:00 10 this suit -- and I won't comment about the merits of 11 whether the suit is appropriate or not in view of 12 "the settlement." That's for the lawyers to work 13 out, Congress and the President, and I am far less 14 than that. 15 However, I talked about the WIC data , and 16 it's very interesting at a time when the State of 17 Texas is suing an individual group for costs, that 18 the State of Texas is decreasing the number of 13:50:30 19 dollars being provided to the WIC program, which by 20 their own database has a major impact on positive ~ 21 pregnancy outcomes.

1 agree that the Florida information would -- I know 2 not specifically apply, but would be generally 3 applicable to Texas? 4 A. No, I don't think so. 5 Q. Okay. 6 A. I don't think so for a very important 7 reason: If you take a look at some of the Florida 8 data, and specifically they talk about the Cuban 9 population and they talk about their Hispanic 10 population. One of the questions that -- one of at 11 least my own observations, and I think the Florida 13:42:30 12 data that I have suggested that that observation may 13 be more true than not, is that there is decreased 14 smoking within the Hispanic population. However, if 15 you take a look at Hispanic populations, not all 16 Hispanic populations are the same, and this is 17 general, and it may not be true. My thought 18 processes concerning a Cuban population with 19 certainly very heavy male smoking patterns may also 20 be true with respect to female smoking patterns. 13:43:00 21 How does that population differ from, if you will, 22 the Florida Hispanic? I don't remember truly seeing Ln ~ -j ~ 23 that segregated out, and it may have because there's m ~ 24 a lot of data there that I tried to look at.

1 Exhibit -- 2 A. 12. 3 Q. -- 12. Have you reviewed the information 4 in those various documents from the state? 5 A. I have read the information a single 6 time. As I've said several times, I have not 7 memorized it, and I probably have processed some of 8 the information, but not reviewed in the sense that 9 I normally use the word "review." To me when I 10 review something that means that I have a reasonable 13:22:00 11 understanding and comprehension of the database 12 which is enclosed in that particular -- data set. 13 Q. Okay. 14 A. I do not have that appreciation for this 15 information. There is nothing in this information 16 that I was surprised seeing, though. 17 Q. Have you utilized any of the information Ln 1~ 18 contained in Exhibit 12 to formulate some ~j 6 19 conclusions? v N 20 A. No. Because the data, I think, N is 21 duplicative, if you will, in some respects to the 22 Florida data where they have that information. I 13:22:30 23 think it's very similar. It shows the same type of 24 trending, it shows the same type of analysis. 25 Giving you a specific example, the 131 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 alcohol, or illicit drugs, lack of maternal 2 education, unmarried status, short interval between 3 pregnancies, multiple partners and infections. Just 4 so we're clear here, shouldn't smoking be also added 5 to that list? 6 A. The first -- if you want to add it as a 7 separate component, yes, I have no problem with that. 8 Q. Okay. 9 A. That first sentence is applicable to all 13:37:30 10 of the things that are present within this. There 11 is not either, one, a deliberate attempt or anything 12 like that to remove smoking as a risk factor. 13 Q. I understand. 14 A. Smoking is a risk factor. But if one 15 wants to be complete and say, list everything, 16 fine. I have no objections for that being added 17 here . 18 Q.

1 A. That's why that word "may" -- because a 2 long time ago, in fact, in one of our first 3 meetings, in fact probably the first meeting -- did 4 I say February 24th? Whenever it was. January 5 24th. That issue of what available databases are 6 there? Well, the birth certificate data -- and this 13:39:30 7 is before I knew anything about the cross-linking of 8 data in the Florida case, Mississippi case, before 9 any of that, the question was asked, What 10 information do you -- would you like to have? What 11 information would be important? And so I went 12 through a whole bunch of stuff. And then I said, 13 The specific place where some of that information 14 can be acquired, although it is not going to be 15 perfect, just as the State of Florida admits their 13:40:00 16 information is not perfect, is the birth certificate 17 data. And there is linkage data available. 18 But what you have to do is you have to get 19 access to the data.

1 private patients and at the Harris County Hospital 2 District, Hispanic patients are much less likely to 3 smoke. Our population of Hispanic patients within 4 the total Medicaid population, I think from a 5 quantitative basis, is far greater than that of 13:43:30 6 Florida. Therefore, if you try to abstract the 7 white, black, Hispanic and then you take the total 8 Medicaid population of Texas, take those same 9 statistics and say, Gee whiz, whatever the numbers 10 are of Florida equals that of Texas, I don't think 11 that that can be done legitimately. I think there 12 would be substantially differences. 13 Q. Uh-huh. 14 A. The way to find out is at least go into 15 the databases that you have and then you can 16 quantitate. Even if you assume that all other 13:44:00 17 Florida data is valid, then you have specific ethnic 18 populations, and the demographics of those ~ ~ 19 populations. Then to be able to say, Gee whiz, this ~ ~ m 20 is the same or it's not the same. If it's the same, ~ N 21 fine. You use the same statistics, the same co 22 calculations, if you will, for recovery of damage. 23 But if it's not -- and my bias is -- this is bias 13:44:30 24 and not science -- that you'll find that Texas has a 25 far greater Hispanic, and therefore your damages, 148 KEITH & MILLER CERTIFIED REPORTERS EL PASO, TEXAS 79901 (915) 533-7108

1 a significant factor in increasing medical costs for 2 the mother, fetus, or neonate in the Texas Medicaid 3 population." What is -- what's that statement based 4 on? 5 A. Oh, the reality is I cannot technically 6 make that statement, because unless you have data as 7 I just discussed and what I have requested, even 13:48:30 8 using attributable risk, I don't know what those 9 attributable risk percentiles -- percentages might 10 be. It is -- antenatal smoking is a risk factor in 11 pregnancy. How it would come out in the Texas 12 population, I do not know. 13 Q. Okay. Going back to the first sentence. 14 You've got, "Antenatal smoking should not be 15 considered a major risk factor, pregnancy 13:49:00 16 complications and adverse pregnancy outcomes." 17 A. Well, I can't -- I can't agree with that. 18 We've talked about that, and antenatal smoking is a ~ 19 risk factor. I would delete the word "major," ~ ~ ~ 20 because major depends upon populations and other m ~ 21 factors. It is a risk factor. The word "major" N w N 22 should not be there, the word "not" should be there 23 -- should be deleted. 24 Q.

1 there. Let's see. 2 A. Oh. There's one question I noticed -- or 13:47:00 3 one question you should ask, and I noticed it on 4 page 5 when I was going through this. Antenatal 5 smoking should not be considered a risk factor for 6 preterm delivery. We've talked about that this 7 morning, that it is, and I was thinking totally 8 along different lines when that -- I did not catch 9 that as a specific circumstance to change that. It 10 is a risk factor. When I was seeing that and 11 remembering -- or not remembering, when I was seeing 13:47:30 12 that and thinking about it acutely last week I was 13 thinking the issue again causation that we were 14 talking about, so and to clear that one point. 15 Because that's the only thing in going through this 16 after I have my copy that I saw that that's not Ln 17 quite precise. 18 Q. Okay. 19 A. That's on the top of page 5. 20 Q. Going to page 6, Doctor. 21 A. Okay. 13:48:00 22 Q. Under the last heading, Maternal Smoking 23 During Pregnancy and Pregnancy Complications.

Maternal smoking during pregnancy has not been associated with local infection or chorioamnionitis, the most commonly identified cause of PROM. Also, maternal smoking during pregnancy, has little, if any, effect on the duration of gestation so that it should not be considered a risk factor for prematurity, one of the most significant complications of PROM. Placental Changes Gross observation of the placenta after birth can suggest several medical conditions that can have an adverse impact on a pregnancy or its outcome. Chronic conditions such as hypertension and severe diabetes, that can result in marked reduction of oxygen and nutrient supply to the developing fetus, may result in a small placenta relative to the size of the fetus. Examination of the placenta may reveal other pathological signs suggesting reduced blood flow to the fetus, such as placental infarcts or partial, silent abruption. Histological examination of the placenta can also suggest abnormalities that increase the risk of pregnancy complications. For example, maternal hypertension and diabetes can cause characteristic histopathological changes associated with reduced placental size. Additionally, the presence of an acute inflammatory response in placental tissue suggests infection which can adversely affect placental blood flow and/or increase the risk of chorioamnionitis and neurologic disability. Maternal smoking during pregnancy is not associated with a remarkable change in placental size or with gross abnormalities. Antenatal smoking also is not associated with significant histopathology which would suggest reduced nutrient or blood supply to the fetus. Fetal Pregnancy Complications Low Birth Weight A low birth weight (LBW) baby is less than 2,500 grams in weight. Most LBW babies are premature, being born at or before 37 weeks of gestation. Other LBW infants are born at or near term, but are small-for-gestational-age (SGA) because of intrauterine growth restriction. Low birth weight alone, unless severe, will not determine whether a neonate will require special neonatal care and incur additional medical costs. Prematurity Preterm delivery occurs at a rate of 7-12% in different populations. In this premature cohort, up to 40% of these births occur with no known risk factors. Known risk factors for prematurity include a history of premature delivery, socioeconomic status, PROM, infection, multiple gestations, oo3o721.o1 Page 4 Ln r ~ r m v N (TI l0

Robert J. Carpenter, Jr., M.D. Obstetriciare-GynecologW Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist Summary of Expert Opinions for Texas Attorney General Case Risk Factors for Pregnancy Complications and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes Maternal smoking during pregnancy is reported to be associated with several adverse pregnancy outcomes for the mother and the fetus or neonate. The maternal conditions related to smoking are alleged to include an increased incidence of spontaneous abortion, placental changes, antepartum hemorrhage due to placenta previa and abruptio placenta, and premature rupture of membranes. The fetal and neonatal conditions related to smoking are alleged to include reduced or low birth weight due to prematurity and intrauterine growth restriction, as well as adverse outcomes related to fetal hypoxia. These conditions alleged to be associated with maternal smoking during pregnancy are also alleged to result in increased maternal and neonatal medical care costs for the Medicaid population in Texas. However, these pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes are known to have multiple risk factors for their occurrence, and risk factors for each mother and each fetus or neonate are unique. Also, the medical care for each mother and each fetus or neonate is determined on an individual basis after evaluation of the pregnancy history and the medical conditions present. During the course of prenatal care, high risk pregnancies are often identified. Early identification of high risk pregnancies facilitates prompt medical intervention before and after birth and reduces risks for the mother and the fetus or neonate. Among the more common risk factors for pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes are a poor reproductive history, restricted fetal growth, many maternal medical problems, and various placental problems. In addition to the known risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes, there are also many unknown risk factors, so that prenatal care is important for early detection of unanticipated maternal and fetal complications. The majority of newborns requiring immediate and intensive medical care are premature infants who may have many medical problems. Other infants requiring an increased level of perinatal care include a variety of other conditions, such as being small or large for gestational age, or having infections, congenital abnormalities, or sequelae from chronic or acute hypoxia. Risk Factors for Pregnant Women on Medicaid Due to their socioeconomic status, Medicaid recipients are often at increased risk for pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes. Common and important risk factors in this population include inadequate prenatal care, young maternal age, low maternal weight, obesity, poor oo;on:.o 1 Page I EXHIBIT ~ ~

fetal or uterine anomalies, hypertension or diabetes. Antenatal smoking should not be considered a risk factor for premature delivery. SGA / TUGR Major risk factors for SGA / IUGR are genetic predisposition, many maternal diseases, marked maternal malnutrition, placental conditions, fetal abnormalities, multiple gestations, and infection. SGA babies commonly reflect a chronic reduction of oxygen and nutrient delivery to the fetus. Neonates with clinically significant growth restriction have an increased risk of hypoxia and other acute complications both prior to and following birth. However, SGA infants have a lower incidence of respiratory distress syndrome unless they are very premature. Common pregnancy complications, such as pregnancy-induced hypertension or eclampsia, can result in clinically significant IUGR. Occasionally, there is no identified etiology for severe IUGR. Maternal smoking during pregnancy is rarely, if ever, the only identifiable risk factor for severe IUGR and clinically significant LBW. If antenatal smoking is the only known risk factor for a LBW baby, the reduction in birth weight is typically mild. In contrast to the above risk factors for severe IUGR, maternal smoking during pregnancy is associated with mild decrease in birth weight. Reports in the medical literature suggest that babies are generally about 200 grams smaller at birth if the mother smokes during her pregnancy. However, this mild level of growth restriction associated with antenatal smoking usually is not clinically significant, and some infants bom to smoking mothers do not have any deficit in weight accretions. Also, the literature reports linking maternal smoking with decreased birth weight may have certain weaknesses shared by many epidemiological studies, so that other risk factors for mild growth restriction may confound the results. Respiratory Distress Syndrome Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) occurs commonly in very premature infants and requires intensive neonatal care. Infants who have intrauterine stress, such as JUGR, are less likely to develop RDS. Neonates who are born to smoking mothers and have mild IUGR tend to have a lower incidence of RDS and associated neonatal care. Maternal Smoking and Fetal Hypoxia Maternal smoking during pregnancy is alleged to result in fetal hypoxia due the effects of carbon monoxide (i.e., carboxyhemoglobin) and/or nicotine (i.e., vasoconstriction and reduced uteroplacental blood flow). However, several lines of evidence suggest that fetal hypoxia associated with maternal smoking may have little or no role in the mild weight decrease reported in the literature. The small differences in maternal oxygen saturation associated with smoking are not clinically significant, and there is little effect of maternal smoking on uteroplacental blood flow to the fetus. Also, the mild reduction in uteroplacental blood flow after smoking is not continuous oo3ona.o1 Page 5

diet, abuse of alcohol or illicit drugs, lack of maternal education, unmarried status, short interval between pregnancies, multiple partners, and infections. Often important maternal medical conditions, occuning before or after the start of pregnancy, go undiagnosed or untreated because of lack of prenatal care. These conditions include anemia, hypertension, toxemia, or diabetes. Also, without prenatal care, pregnant patients are not advised about the signs of premature labor or infection and are not counseled about diet, exercise, alcohol, drugs, or smoking. Medicaid mothers who smoke during their pregnancy may tend to be less health conscious. As a result, they may have many significant risk factors for pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes. A cluster of risk factors makes it difficult, if not impossible, to determine what contribution, if any, a specific risk factor may have in the pregnancy of a woman on Medicaid. Demographics of Pregnant Women on Medicaid in Texas Dr. Carpenter may comment on the demographics of pregnant Medicaid recipients in Texas. Texas-specific demographic data may be derived from cross-linking Texas birth certificate data with both the National Heritage Insurance Computer database and Texas death certificate data, in the event these data become available. Maternal Pregnancy Complications Spontaneous Abortion Spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage, is common and occurs in about 15-20% of pregnancies. The vast majority of spontaneous abortions occur within the first 20 weeks of gestation when the fetus is less than 500 grams. The majority of these fetuses have chromosomal abnormalities. The other spontaneous abortions that have no chromosomal abnormalities have a number ef risk factors for their occurrence, including increasing maternal age, chronic infections, chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, materrial malnutrition, jendocrine abnormalities, as well as excessive exposures to alcohol, coffee, and various drugs. Unless a chromosomal analysis is completed on a spontaneously aborted fetus, the identification of a chromosomal abnormality may not be possible. Even if a chromosomal analysis is performed, the etiology of the spontaneous abortion may be difficult to identify considering the multiplicity of risk factors. Unless a large number of spontaneously aborted fetuses have a complete chromosomal analysis in the context of a well-controlled investigation, the role of maternal smoking during pregnancy, if any, on spontaneous abortion cannot be determined. Antepartum Hemorrhage (Placenta Previa and Abruptio Placenta) Two significant causes of antepartum hemorrhage are placenta previa and abruptio placenta. However, these pregnancy complications are relatively uncommon, with placenta previa occurring in less than 1% of pregnancies and abruptio placenta occurring in 1-2% of pregnancies.

throughout the day. Finally, the growing fetus can compensate for chronic hypoxia by an increase in hemoglobin, and this is not observed in the fetuses and neonates of smoking mothers. In contrast to the mild and clinically insignificant hypoxia that may occur with maternal smoking, marked fetal hypoxia is known to result from chronic problems during gestation or acute events during labor and delivery. Risk factors for marked fetal hypoxia are frequently chronic pregnancy conditions during pregnancy such as maternal anemia, fetal blood loss, preeclampsia, toxemia, or diabetes. Severe chronic hypoxia is associated with marked IUGR and abnonnal histology of the placenta. Acute hypoxic events at birth account for the minority of cases of fetal hypoxia. Obvious acute events include cord accidents, severe antenatal hemorrhage, maternal hypotension, prolonged or intense labor, or trauma. Maternal smoking during pregnancy is not associated with the above chronic and acute conditions known to result in clinically significant fetal or neonatal hypoxia. Infants born to smoking mothers do not display signs of hypoxia that can be attributable to antenatal smoking. Apgar Scores Apgar scores provide objective information on the need to resuscitate a neonate at birth. Depressed Apgar scores are caused by many neonatal problems, including severe prematurity, marked IUGR, congenital abnormalities, and significant hypoxia. Maternal smoking during pregnancy should not be considered a factor associated with poor Apgar scores. Maternal Smoking During Pregnancy and Pregnancy Complications Antenatal smoking should not be considered a major risk factor pregnancy complications and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Maternal smoking during pregnancy is not a significant factor in increasing medical costs for the mother, fetus, or neonate in the Texas Medicaid population. Dr. Carpenter may be asked to comment on the opinions expressed by other witnesses, as well as the evidence on which they rely to the extent that these opinions relate to his areas of expertise. In addition, if individual patient records of Medicaid recipients are produced, Dr. Carpenter may testify about his review, if any, of these patient records. oo3ons.oi Page 6 -J N Ol N

many known risk factors for these conditions, and the clinical significance of anteparturn hemorrhage for the mother or fetus depends on many unique factors in each pregnancy, including when these events occur in gestation and whether they increase the risk of premature birth. Placenta previa is the abnormally low implantation of the gestational sac in the uterus so that the placenta grows over the cervix and thus precedes the infant at birth. Risk factors for placenta previa suggest that old uterine scars exist in normal implantation sites and therefore lower implantation sites in the uterus are favored. These predisposing factors include multiparity, advancing maternal age, and previous caesarian section, as well as a tendency for repeat placenta previa in subsequent pregnancies. Placenta previa is commonly diagnosed early during pregnancy so that appropriate medical surveillance can reduce risks to mother and fetus. . Abruptio placenta is the separation of the placenta from the implantation site before delivery of the fetus. Although the primary cause of abruptio placenta is not known, the most common risk factor is chronic or pregnancy-induced hypertension. Other risk factors include increasing maternal age, increasing parity, ethnicity (more common in blacks than in Hispanics or whites), premature rupture of membranes, multiple gestations, external trauma, cocaine or alcohol abuse, uterine fibroids, and chorioamnionitis, as well as an abruption in a previous pregnancy. Abruptio placenta can be complete or partial, symptomatic or silent, and anticipated or unexpected. The course of medical treatment and outcome depend on the unique circumstances of each pregnancy. Maternal smoking is not associated with chronic or pregnancy-induced hypertension or any of the risk factors that are known to predispose for these placental complications of pregnancy. Also, as will be discussed later, maternal smoking during pregnancy, has little, if any, effect on the duration of gestation so that it should not be considered a risk factor for prematurity, one of the most significant concerns for these placental complications. Premature Rupture of Membranes Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) is the most commonly identified factor in pretenm labor. Although the cause of PROM in a pregnant woman is usually unknown, local infection or chorioamnionitis is probably present in most cases even though not diagnosed clinically. There are some other known risk factors for PROM, such as sickle cell anemia, polyhydramnios, and multifetal gestations. About 30% of pregnancies in patients with sickle cell anemia are complicated by PROM for some unknown reason. The clinical significance of PROM for the mother and fetus probably relates most importantly to the time in gestation when this condition occurs. If the pregnancy is new or at tenm, risks for the mother and fetus are minimal as long as delivery occurs soon enough to avoid chorioamnionitis. If PROM occurs before 38 weeks gestation, clinical judgement determines the appropriate course to minimize the risks of prematurity and chorioamnionitis. xamzs oi Page 3 11

Thi © Notice came to us without any forewarning and without the usual efforts to arrive at a mutually agreeable date for the deposition. For these reasons, it is far from a certainty that your deposition will proceed on the above date. It is highly likely that we will be able to enter into discussions with the State's lawyers to bring about a rescheduling for a time that will enable everyone involved (certainly, you) to readily accommodate the deposition. i will be in further touch with you when and as the matter should become better clarified. Thank you. Yours very truly, Victor Hlavinka (DICTATED BUT NOT READ) (This docuoent is being sent directly via consXrter facsimile without signature.) VH:th

68ZL 0ZLZ5 ~,.._,~-.....v W PART I. FEMALE Pregnancy and Pregnancy Outcome Introduction Since the late 1940s, cigarette smoking during pregnancy has been linked with poor pregnancy outcome (Bernhard 1949; Athayde 1948). Adverse effects of smoking on pregnancy began to receive considerable attention after publication of the results of a study of 7,499 pregnant women in San Bernardino County. CA, in which the rate of prematurity, defined as birthweight less than 2.500 g. was found to be about twice as high among smokers as among nonsmokers during pregnancy (Simpson 1957). Early reports of the Surgeon General (US DHEW 1971. 1973. 1978) concluded that maternal smoking during pregnancy retards fetal growth and is a probable cause of late fetal and infant mortality (US DHEW 1973). The 1977 Report of the Surgeon General (US DHEW 1978) concluded that smoking during pregnancy has dose-response relationships with abruptio placentae, placenta previa, bleeding during pregnancy, premature and.prolonged rupture of the membranes, and preterm delivery. The 1979 and 1980 Reports of the Surgeon General (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980) comprehensively reviewed information on the association of matemal smoking with pregnancy outcome and further concluded that the risk of spontaneous abortion in- creases with the amount of smoking and that the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is increased by matemal smoking during pregnancy. The 1980 Report (US DHHS 1980) also indicated the possibility of a link between cigarette smoking and impaired fertility. Two earlier reports of the Surgeon General (US DHEW 1979: US DHHS 1980) concluded that mean gestational duration is not affected by maternal smoking and that data are not sufficient to support a conclusion that maternal smoking increases, decreases, or has no association with risk of congenital malformations. This Section reviews observational studies of smoking cessation and the following reproductive outcomes: fertility and infertility; ectopic pregnancy and spontaneous abortion: fetal, neonatal, and perinatal mortality; birthweight and gestational duration: and complications of pregnancy. Three randomized trials of smoking cessation and pregnancy outcome are described and discussed in detail. Information on the prevalence of smoking during pregnancy and time trends in prevalence is presented, along with estimates of the attributable risk of several pregnancy outcomes. SIDS and congenital malformations are not considered because of the limited information on smoking cessation. Pathophysiologic Framework The effects of smoking that might mediate adverse effects on the developing fetus and on fertility, fetal loss, and pregnancy complications have been reviewed in other publications (Longo 1982; Mattison 1982; US DHHS 1980). These reviews are summarized with attention to the temporal course of the relation between exposure to 371 I I

V6ZL OtLtS 1 } i Birthwcight is, howevcr, a result of gestational age at birth and the rate of fetal growth. Recognition of the complex relationships among gestational duration, rate of fetal growth, birthweight, and mortality has led to attempts to classify infants according to gestational duration or joint distribution of binhweight and gcstational duration. Generally, births are categorized as pretcnn (<37 weeks gestation) and/or as small for gestational age (SGA) (<10th percentile of weight for a given gestational age). Joint classification is thought to provide a more discriminating basis for thc study ofetiologic agents. Pretenn delivery is strongly associated with increases in the risk of fetal, neonatal, and perinatal mortality and with significant childhood morbidity. Both preterm delivery and SGA increase the risk of cerebral palsy, although the risk is much greater for preterm delivery (Ellenberg and Nelson 1979). SGA is associated with increased risk of neonatal and perinatal mortality at every gestational age (Koops. Morgan. Battaglia 1982; Lubchenco, Searls, Brazie 1972); with SIDS (Buck et al. 1989); and with neurocognitive deficits, short stature, and small head circumference in childhood (Fitzhardinge and Steven 1972; Hill et al. 1984; Westwood et al. 1983; Ounsted and Taylor 1971; Harvey et al. 1982; Ounsted, Moar, Scott 1984, 1988; Fancourt et al. 1976). Continued Smoking As reviewed in previous Surgeon General's reports (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980) and in other literature (Landesman-Dwyer and Emanuel 1979; Longo 1982; Werler, Pober, Holmes 1985; Kramer 1987), smoking during pregnancy decreases mean birthweight and increases the proportion of low birthweight births. Estimates vary among studies, but birthweight is reduced bv an avrrngeof.apptouimatelv 200 g and the proportion of low birthweiftht is app_roximately doubled bv gjga[stit~m_okin (Meyer, Jonas, Tonascia 1976; US DHHS 1980; US DHEW 1979; McIntosh 1984; Committee to Study the Prevention of Low Birthweight 1985; Kramer 1987). Mean birthweight decreases and the percent low birthweight increases with increasing num- ber of cigarettes stnoked daily. The relationship between cigarette smoking and decreased birthweight is considered to be causal (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980. 1989). Smoking affects birthweight and the percentage of babies who are born of low birthweight by retarding fetal growth. A measure of fetal growth retardation is the probability of delivering an infant who is in the less than 10th percentile for gestational age. The relative risk of SGA is about 3.5- to 4.0-fold higher among the infants of smokers than for the infants of nonsmokers (Ounsted, Moar, Scott 1985). Preterm birth is also associated with maternal smoking, although not as strongly. Estimates of the relative ris i.ved~fore 37 weeks of gestation are typically about 1.5 for smoking during pregnancy (Committee to Study the Prevention of Low Birthweight 1985; Kramer 1987; Shiono. Klebartoff, Rhoads 1986). Mean gestational duration ~ among smokers is not sitCnificantly shorter than it is among nonsmo ers (U DREW f'tS 1979; US DHHS 1980). This finding is consistent with the observation that the risk of delivering early is greater among smokers than nonsmokers, but the percentage of 381

r cigarette smoking artd pregnancy outcome as well as ttie distinction between reversible and irreversible effects of smoking. Reversible effects would be expected to result in similar risks for never smokers and former smokers, whereas irreversible effects would be expected to lead to different risks in both current and fonner smokers compared with never smokers. Several pathways have been postulated by which tobacco smoke might adversely affect fertility (Mattison 1982) (Table 1). 'lhesc include disturbance of hypothalamic- pituitary function, interference with motility in the female reproductive tract (Chow et al. 1988). and impairment of implantation, all of which are thought to be reversible consequences of exposure to absorbed chemicals in tobacco smoke (principally nicotine). It has also been suggested that smoking results in oocyte depletion through direct toxicity (Mattison 1980), which would have irreversible consequences for fertility. Chow and col leagues (1988) postulated that altered immune function (Hersey, Prendergast, Edwards 1983) may predispose smokers to pelvic inflammatory disease, which in turn can result in permanent scarring and occlusion of the fallopian tubes. Alterations in the neuroendocrine control of ovulation have been suggested to account for increased amenorrhea reported among smokers (Pettersson, Fries, Nillius 1973); this mechanism, as an effect of smoking on fertility, would be reversible.

Mechanisms for an effect of cigarette smoking on spontaneous abortion have not been clearly defined, partly because so little is known about the pathophysiologic basis for spontaneous abortion. The causes of spontaneous abortion are broadly divided into genetic and nongenetic causes (Kline 1984). Because smoking seems to have its primary impact on chromosomally normal spontaneous abortions (Kline 1984; Alber- man et al. 1976), nongenetic pathways are implicated for smoking (Table 1). 372 Most attention has been focused on the rnechanisms mediating a reduction of fetal growth among smokers (Table I). An indirect, nutritionally based mechanism in which smokers are postulated to eat less and gain less weight during pregnancy, thus delivering smallerinfants, has been prominent in discussions of fetal growth retardation in smokers (Papoz et al. 1982; Rush 1974; Meyer 1978; Davies and Abernethy 1976). This subject has been reviewed in depth in previous reports of the Surgeon General (US :Jr1EW 1979; US DHHS 1980) and more recently by other researchers (Werler, Pober. Holmes 1985). Differences in weight gain do not entirely explain fetal growth ret6,da.tion in smokers because differences in weight gain during pregnancy between smokers and nonsmokers are very small and have not been observed consistently and because a relationship between growth retardation and smoking persists after adjusting for mater- nal weight gain. In this context, however, the studies of weight gain in women who quit smoking during pregnancy are of interest. Pulkkinen (1985) found that women who quit smoking during the first trimester gained more weight than nonsmokers or continuing smokers (1.0 vs. 1.3 kg average difference, respectively). Kuzma and Kissinger (1981) also found that women who quit smoking during pregnancy gained more weight compared with women who did not smoke during pregnancy (average difference of 4.7 kg) and women who smoked throughout pregnancy (average difference of 5.6 kg). Also, women who quit smoking before the onset of pregnancy were reported to gain more weight during pregnancy than nonsmokers or smokers (1.3 kg and 0.9 kg average difference, respectively) (Anderson et al. 1984). Rush (1974) reported a reduction in weight gain of 0.12 pounds per week among continuing smokers compared with those who quit. This pattern may reflect the well-established tendency to gain weight following smoking cessation (Manley and Boland 1983; Rabkin 1984), as discussed further in Chapter 11. There are several hypotheses that attempt to explain the mechanism by which fetal growth is affected by cigarette smoking (Table 1), but cigarette smoking is believed to impact on fetal growth through intrauterine hypoxia (Longo 1977). Carbon monoxide, a component of cigarette smoke, has the ability to cross the placenta and bind with the hemoglobin in both the mother and the fetus producing carboxyhemoglobin. Car- boxyhemoglobin reduces the ability of the blood to carry adequate levels of oxygen to the fetus. Smoking is also believed to cause vasoconstriction of the umbilical arteries, and therefore, impact on placental blood flow (Lehtovirta and Forss 1978; Naeye and Tafari 1983; Longo 1982). Cigarette smoking during pregnancy decreases the availability of oxygen to the fetus by both mechanisms. These mechanisms imply a reversible effect of cigarette smoking for fetal growth because normal function would resume shortly after nicotine or CO is cleared from the system. Support for the suggestion that these effects are reversible is derived from several sources. Davies and coworkers (1979) found that 48 hours of smoking cessation late in ptegnancy increased oxygen availability to the fetus. Viinjevac and Mikov (1986) found similarly low levels of carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) in mothers and newborns when the mother was a former smoker or never smoker, mothers who smoked during pregnancy and their newborns had high levels of COHb. 373 @6ZL OTLTS

Women who reported smoking throughout their pregnancy had a 90-percent increased risk of having a low birthwcight baby in contrast to nonsmokers. Most fetal growth occurs late in pregnancy, and the primary smoke constituents considered as candidates in mediating the effect of smoking on fetal growth (i.e.. CO and nicotine leading to intrauterine hypoxia) have short-term reversible effects. The data in Tables 6 and 7 support the conclusion that the adverse effect of smoking on birthweight occurs in the latter part of gestation, primarily during tite third trimester, and that cessation at any time during gestation is likely to mitigate the adverse effect of smoking on fetal growth.

Hebel, Fox, and Sexton (1988) used data from their randomized trial of smoking cessation to examine this question. These researchers found that the benefit of decreased smoking for birthweight during pregnancy was almost entirely restricted to those who achieved total cessation, perhaps because women who reduce the number of cigarettes smoked compensate by inhaling more deeply, by puffing more frequently, or by smoking the cigarette to a shorter butt length. Findings from another randomized trial support the conclusion that abstinence, not reduction, should be the goal in pregnancy (MacArthur. Newton. Knox 1987). In this latter study, the intervention led to a considerable reduction in the reported mean number of cigarettes smoked per day but almost no difference in the percentage of women who quit entirely; there was no difference in birthweight between the treatment and control groups (MacArthur. Newton, Knox 1987). Because of the social stigma associated with smoking during pregnancy, it is possible that some women in this intervention trial falsely reported a reduction in smoking; if so, this underreporting would lead to an underestimation of possible benefits of reducing cigarette consumption. Whether quitting only during the first half of pregnancy will prevent a reduction in birthweight is another important consideration. Most fetal growth takes place in the last trimester; early quitting virtually eliminates the effect of smoking on birthweight. Thus, smoking late in pregnancy may have an adverse effect on birthweight even if there is abstinence in the first trimester. Lowe (1959) found that the mean birthweight of infants of smokers who quit early in pregnancy but resumed smoking was between that of smokers throughout pregnancy and that of never smokers.

However, the limited available data are consistent with the conclusion that perinatal and neonatal mortality are lower among infants of women who quit smoking than among those women who smoke throughout pregnancy. The possibility must be considered that differences between women who quit smoking and those who continue to smoke account for the lower rate of perinatal and neonatal mortality in the studies in which this has been observed. Birthweight and Gestational Duration smoked prior to conception and who stopped before the fourth month of pregnancy as it was for never smokers. However, perinatal mortality was higher for continuing smokers than for never smokers for all categories of amount smoked. Andrews and McGarry (1972) examined mortality in the Cardiff birth survey of more than 18,631 births. PerinataJ mortality was 29 per 1,000 in those who quit smoking before pregnan- cy or in the early months of pregnancy; 29 per 1,000 in continuing smokers; and 24 per 1,000 in "nonsmokers." Rush and Cassano (1983) analyzed data from the 1970 British birth cohort, consisting of all births in Great Britain during a single week in 1970. 378 E6ZL 0tLt5 Introduction Fetal, neonatal, and perinatal mortality are the most direct measures of pregnancy outcome. Mortality is relatively uncommon, and very large samples are needed for study. This has led to the widespread study of birthweight and the percentage of births that are low birthweight (<2,500 g) as surrogates for the study of mortality. This strategy has beenjustified by the extremely strong association between birthweight and the percent of low birthweight and each of the measures ofmortality (Figure 1). Equally important is weight at birth as a determinant of infant health (McCormick 1985). 379 w, . __„.. ..............

) Prevalence of Smoking and Smoking Cessation During Pregnancy and Time Trends in Prevalence and Cessation Introduction Ideally, conclusions about the prevalence of smoking during pregnancy and trends in prevalence would be based on representative samples of pregnant women perfomied at regular intervals using the same methodology. Assessment of smoking cessation during pregnancy and time trends in smoking cessation should be based on repre- sentative samples of women who start pregnancy as smokers and who are monitored for smoking behavior throughout gestation. Available data fall short of these ideals. Furthermore, available information on smoking and smoking cessation in pregnancy is based almost exclusively on self-reported behavior. Few data on the quality of self-reponed smoking specifically in relation to pregnancy have been collected, and it is possible that the societal pressures against smoking during pregnancy would make underreporting more problematic than for other populations (Chapter 2). Similarly, pregnant smokers who admit to smoking might underreport their daily cigarette consumption, perhaps to a greater extent than nonpregnant smokers. The effect of underreporting of smoking and overreporting of cessation would make the data from former smokers more similar to that of continuing smokers with respect to their reproductive health outcomes. Also, smokers who reduce the amount of nicotine in their cigarettes by changing brands or those who reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke per day without quitting may compensate to maintain the same nicotine dose (US DHHS 1988). Prevalence of Smoking and Smoking Cessation Pertinent data on smoking during pregnancy from the 1985 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) (NCHS 1988) are presented in Table 10. The 1985 survey focused on health promotion and disease prevention. The survey involved nearly 35,000 households and more than 90.000 persons, and the response rate was 95.7 percent. Information concerning smoking during pregnancy was obtained from all female household members aged 18 to 44 years who had had a live birth in the 5 years prior to the survey. The proportion of women who had smoked at any time during the year preceding pregnancy was 32 percent overall. Of women with less than 12 years of education. 46 percent smoked in the year preceding pregnancy, compared with 13 percent of women with 16 or more years ofeducation. Thirty percent of married women had smoked, compared with 40 percent of formerly married women. Patterns of smoking cessation or reduction were reported in detail for some demographic subgroups. Overall, 21 percent of women who smoked prior to pregnancy quit upon leaming of their pregnancy, and an additional 36 percent reduced the number of cigarettes they smoked. Cessation (but not reduction) was strongly related to education and family income. Among women with less than 12 years of education, 12 years of education, and more than 12 years of education, 15, 20, and 32 percent quit. 390 66ZL OtLTS .,~ . ~ 5 i' ._ _-I.

Younger mothers were slightly more likely to quit than older mothers, and white mothers quit slightly more often than black mothers (21 vs. 18 percent). More married mothers (23 percent) than never married (19 percent) or formerly married (14 percent) mothers quit, although the proportions reducing their smoking levels were similar (36, 37, and 35 percent, respectively). Fingerhut. Kleinman, and Kendrick (1990) also reported data on smoking in whites before and during pregnancy based on the Linked Telephone Survey, which reinter- viewed 1.550 women aged 20 to 44 years who were respondents to the 1985 NHIS. This analysis confirmed the previous findings that smoking prior to pregnancy and quitting during pregnancy were strongly related to age and educational attainment. Information on amount smoked prior to pregnancy was obtained in this survey. Fifty-n` innt of women who smoked less than l_pack ror day prior to pregnancy q-uit smokin cottlplircd with 25 percent of those who smoked.l pack or moreper day, Of the w ite women who smoked prio rto pregnancy, 39 percent quit during pregnancy (27 percent when they found out they were pregnant and 12 percent later in pregnancy). This estimate of quitting during pregnancy is higher than the previous estimate of quitting from whites in this survey because it includes as quitters both women who quit upon leaming that they were pregnant and those who quit later in pregnancy. Smoking during pregnancy was also assessed in the 1980 NNS (Prager et al. 1984) (Table 10). Questionnaires were distributed to a national probability sample of married women who had had live births in 1980; the response rate was 56 percent. The restriction to married women severely compromises the generalixability of rcsults, especially for subgroups such as blacks and youth because smoking during pregnancy 391 ., ._ . ~ . ...._....~.. ._ _.._ ___-. _._ .. ~,.»..,~ ,,...._. _w. . ~.., . . ..............._.

In the test group 10 percent of the infants had low binhweight (<2.500 g) compared with 9 percent in the control group. 7here were four perinatal deaths in the test group and one in the control group. None of the differences in birth outcome between the test and control groups were statistically significant. Although this trial might be regarded as evidence against a benefit of smoking cessation.during pregnancy, a number of limitations of the study must be considered. First, no'data are presented concerning the percentage of pregnant smokers who quit smoking entirely. Reducing cigarette consumption almost certainly has a smaller benefit for pregnancy outcome than complete cessation. Second, the time at which smoking behavior changed during pregnancy is unclear, data on cigarette consumption for three periods during pregnancy were obtained postnatally, and may have been affected by recall bias. Data from observational studies discussed in the previous section l4rongly suggest that smoking during the last trimester ofpregnancy is a critical mediator of reduction in fetal growth among smokers. Information from another British randomized trial (MacArthur, Newton, Knox 1987) also questions the benefit of smoking cessation during pregnancy. In this study, women who smoked at the time they were scheduled for a prenatal visit at a large hospital were assigned randomly to a control group that received routine care or to an intervention group that received supplementary health education about smoking during pregnancy. The planned intervention consisted of advice to stop smoking and information about the effects of smoking on the fetus, presented visually by a booklet or verbally by the obstetrician. There were 489 women in the control group and 493 in the intervention group. Mean birthweight for infants in the control group was 3,130 g compared with 3.164 g for the intervention group. The percentages of low birthweight and pcrinatal mortality in the two groups were not reported. The difference in mean birthweight was 388 1 / } not statistically significant as determined by the conventional 0.05 probability value and a two-sided test. In this trial, only 9 percent of the women in the intervention group quit smoking entirely, compared with 6 percent of the women in the control group. The failure of the intervention to cause smoking cessation makes this trial essentially uninformative conceming the benefit, or lack of benefit, of smoking cessation during pregnancy. In the intervention group, 28 percent of the women reduced the number of cigarettes smoked per day, compared with 19 percent of the women in the control group. The greater reduction in cigarette consumption in the intervention group, in the absence of a difference in mean birthweight between the intervention and control groups, suggests that reducing smoking does not entirely prevent the adverse effects of smoking on birthweight. The third randomized trial (Sexton and Hebei 1984) recruited women in a large metropolitan area from various sources. Smokers of at least 10 cigarettes per day at the beginning of pregnancy, who had not passed the 18th week of gestation, were randomly assigned to a control group that received routine advice or to a treatment group that received intensive, ongoing advice throughout pregnancy from specially trained profes- sional staff. There were 472 women in the control group and 463 women in the treatment group. The mean birthweight of infants bom to women in the control group was 3,186 g compared with 3,278 g for infants of women in the treatment group. ne percentage of low birthweight infants was 8.9 in the control group and 6.8 in the treatment group. 'ITtere were 1 l stillbirths in the control group and 9 in the treatment group. The difference in mean birthweight was statistically significant (pcU.05, two- tailed test): the differences in the percentages of low birthweight and in fetal mortality were not statistically significant. In this trial, 43 percent of the women in the treatment group had ceased smoking entirely by the eighth month of pregnancy, compared with 20 percent of the women in the control group. The intervention was, therefore, highly successful in causing substantial changes in smoking that exceeded changes in the comparison group. 71te investigators ruled out concomitant changes in consumption of alcohol and coffee as explanations for the increase in birthweight. Weight gain was 1.0 kg greater among the treatment group than the control group, but at least part of the difference in weight gain was a result of the higher birthweight of the infant (Sexton and Hebel 1984). Review of these three randomized trials leads to two conclusions. F'ust, to prevent entirely the adverse consequences of smoking on birthweight, it is necessary for women to cease smoking completely. Second, intensive interventions spanning the entire period of gestation may be necessary to effect large changes among the percentage of women who abstain from smoking entirely. 389 1 8 6 Z L 0 T L T S

1 Mechanisms for the effects of smoking on neonatal, perinatal, and infant mortality are poorly understotxi, although the reduction in birthweight is often considered to be the mediating process. However, smoking appears to cause a shift in the distribution of birthweiyhLwtl,hout having much effect on mean gestational age (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980), and shifts in_birthweight distribution across different poPulatioqs_do_ notalwaysproducecorrespondingshiftsinmortality(Wilcox 1983; WilcoxandRussell IY a. . That gestational age is little affected by smokin , whereas birthweight is reduced at every gestational age, explains why small infants of smokers have a tter prognosis th_an small infants o nonsmokers1Yerushalmy 1971; MacMahon, Alpert, Salber 1966). Increases in perinatal mortality among smokers may result not from the reduction in birthweight, but rather from the modest increases in pretenn delivery, very low birthweight, and specific pathologic conditions such as placenta previa and abruptio placentae. liowe~ ver, this has not been addrcssed explicitly in any study. Because the smaller smokmg-related increases in less frequent, more severe outcomes parallel the - pronounced smoking-related reduction in birthweight, birthweight serves as a useful empirical marker of smoking's harmful consequences, even if it is not the direct mediator of those effects. Nonexperimental Studies Fertility and Infertility Consistent evidence indicates that smokers have lower fertility than nonsmokers (Daling et al. 1987; Howe et al. 1985: Baird and Wilcox 1985; Hartz et al. 1987), as noted in the 1989 Report of the Surgeon General (US DHHS 1989). The studies that have assessed indicators of fertility in former smokers are summarized in Table 2. Pettersson, Fries, and Nillius (1973) studied secondary amenorrhea, one mechanism for reduced fertility, and found an increased prevalence among smokers. However, prevalende among former smokers was even higher than among continuing smokers. Hammond (1961) found that irregular menstrual cycles were more common among smokers than never smokers and that former smokers were at slightly lower risk than never smokers. Howe and colleagues (1985) analyzed data on more than 4,000 women in a British cohort study, which assessed the safety of oral contraceptives. Compared with never smokers, women who smoked 20 cigarettes or more at entry into the study were twice as likely to be undelivered 5 years after ceasing contraceptive use with the intention of becoming pregnant, whereas former smokers had the same likelihood of being un- delivered as never smokers. Baird and Wilcox (1985) reported that the time period until pregnancy was the same for 31 women who quit smoking in the year prior to attempting to conceive as it was for never smokers. Daling and coworkers (1987) conducted a large case-control study in Washington State and found that, compared with never smokers, the relative risk of primary tubal infertility was 2.7 among current smokers and 1.1 among former smokers.

'smokcn er>2o tig/day. on secondary tubal infertility from the same study (Daling et a1.1985) revealed a smaller difference between current and former smokers. Although the study focused on prior induced abortion, data are presented that allow computadon of crude odds ratios for current and former cigarette smokers. Current smokers had a 1.6-fold increase in the risk of secondary tubal infertility, and former smokers had a 1.3-fold increase in risk. It is difficult to assess the causal effect of smoking on tubal infertility independent of the effects of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) known to co-vary with smoking in many populations. In summary, the data suggest that impairment of fertility measured as delay in time to conception is related to smoking near the time of attempting to conceive and that smoking cessation prior to conception retums fertility to that of never smokers. Conclusions about smoking and the risk of tubal infertility cannot be drawn because of concern about uncontrolled confounding. Ectopic Pregnancy and Spontaneous Abortion Tubal (ectopic) pregnancy occurs at about the same time in the reproductive process as fetal loss. However, the mechanisms aro thought to be similar to those operating in tubal infertility and largely concern tubal motility and patency. Several reports indicate an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy in smokers (Campbell and Gray 1987; Mat- sunaga and Shiota 1980), but only Chow and associates (1988) examined the associa- tion with prior smoking in detail. In a case-control study in western Washington State, 155 cases of tubal pregnancy were compared with 456 controls who had given birth. Current smokers had an estimated 2.2-fold increased risk of ectopic pregnancy com- 37 , 375 I4 T6ZL OTLTS f

i preterni deliveries is so small that the mean would not be affected unless the shift were very large (US DHEW 1979: US DHHS 1980). Cessation Before Conception Most studies of cigarette smoking and birthweight have failed to separate ncver smokers from women who quit smoking prior to conception. MacMahon, Alpert, arid Salber (1966) first examined the association of pre-pregnancy smoking with birthweight and found no significant difference in the mean blrthwelgltt of infants whose mothers smoked before but not during pregnancy compared with never smokers. Subsequent research has confirmed the absence of an association between smoking prior to conception and reduced birthweight (Table 6). In all of these studies, smokers who quit before conception had mean birthweight values that were equivalent or higher than those of never smokers. Other studies in which infonnation on mean birthweight could not be derived (Kline. Stein, Hutzler 1987; Anderson et al. 1984; Wainright 1983), with the exception of Zabriskie (1963), have also consistently sttown no association between birthweight and smoking that ceased prior to conception. 7•rbris- kie (1963) failed, however, to adjust for smoking during pregnancy, and these results are not directly pertinent in a comparison of birthweight in never smokers and smokers who quit before conception.

MacAtthur and Knox (1988) reported that wom ne who auit smekin¢ durinR Qregnancy and possibly those who ouit before orc¢aancv were more often livine with a partner who smoked. Passive smoke exposure may adversely affect the fetus (Martin and 382 ,~,.,.._._.._..__......._.... . 56ZL OTLTS Bracken 1986). Furthermore, for whatever reason, sonie women may misrepresent their smoking status, denying that they have continued smoking. thus leading to an underestimation of the benefit of smoking cessation prior to conception. More important, women whoquit smoking priorto conception differ in otherrespects from women who continue to smoke. Women who quit may have smoked fewer cigarettes per day prior to quitting. Studies of smoking cessation prior to conception have not accounted fully for other differences between women who quit and those who continue to smoke. Cessation After Conception Birthweight Table 7 summarizes nonexperimental studies in which information on mean birthweight in nonsmokers, smokers throughout pregnancy, and smokers who quit after conception could be derived. The data from each of these studies ate consistent in two important ways. First women who sm ked throu hout re nanc delivered infants who wcighed less than the infants of nons ~re econd women who quit smoking delivered infants who weighed more than the infants of smokers throughout pregnancy. In most of these studies, mean birthweight values among infants whose mothers stopped smoking were the same or higher than those of infants of nonsmokers. Table 8 summarizes nonexperimental studies estimating the relative risk of low birthweight for continuing smokers and quitters some time during pregnancy compared with nonsmokers during pregnancy. These studies aro consistent with those examining mean birthweight. Compared with nonsmokers, the risk of low birthweight is elevated among smokers throughout pregnancy, and the risk is about 1.0 for women who quit. In addition, Kleinman and Madans (1985) reported no association between the risk of low birthweight for women who quit smoking during pregnancy compared with those who had not smoked in the 12 months prior to conception among participants in the 1980 National Natality Survey (NNS). An important as ct of smoking cessation and prcgnanc o is the timin o[ cessation during pregnancy and its relation to tn weight. How early in pregnanc cessatton must occur to avoid the adverse effects o smo tng on btrthwei ht is a e issue with important implications for counse tng pregnant smo •ers._ In most of the studies examining this question, only informatton on cessation in the early months of pregnancy is presented. However, Rush and Cassano (1983) found that mean birthweight among women who quit as late as the seventh to eighth month of pregnancy was higher than for women who smoked throughout pregnancy, but lower than for nonsmokers and for women who quit earlier in gestation. MacArthur and Knox (1988) concluded ncluded that quitting any time before the 3~0th we~ek of P.,.estation increases birthweight when compared with continuin to smoke. Coopt:r (1989) assessed patterns o cigarette smo ng y trimester of pregnancy. Women who reported smoking during the "f rst trimester of pregnancy only" had a 30-percent increased risk of having a low birthweight baby, while women who rcported smoking during the "first and second trimester of pregnancy only" had a 70-percent higher risk of a low \,t Q : 30°ll^ L3w 383 1 ~ ' ° _ _ L \ Q~~ LGu% ...~. ~. . .~...~ . w...y.~ .,

had a mean birthweight identical to that of neversmokers. MacArthur and Knox (1988) also foun t tat m ants bom to womcn who quit smoking early in their pregnancy but started again before delivery had a mean birthweight value between that of smokers throughout pregnancy and those of both early quitters and never smokers. These data indicate that abstinence throughout t~_trimrster of pretnancy is necessarv to realize the full benefit of smo tng ccssation for birthweight. Pretenn Delivery Thee effect of smoking on birthweight is principally due to a reduction in size for a given gestati Lagetather than to a large decrcase in esgtional d_ufatituLCU$ I?H>iW 1979; US DHHS 1980). Thus, it would be expected that pregnancy outcome in women who quit would reflect a predomm effect on size for gestational age. Andrews and McGarry (1972) co ts der-preterm delivery as a distinct endpoint in continuing smokers and quitters; the latter group included a mixture of women who quit prior to conception and women who quit during their pregnancy. The rate of preterm delivery among nonsmokers was 6.7 per 100 compared with 7.5 per 100 for ~ f L ex-smokers and 9.2 per 100 for women who continued to smoke throughout pregnancy~\ (Andrews and McGarry 1972). Berkowitz, Holford, and Berkowitz (1982) examined the association between smok- ing during each trimester of pregnancy and the risk of preterrn delivery in a case-control Q^^r study of 175 mothers of singleton, preterm infants and 313 mothers of singleton, term infants. The risk of preterm delivery was ilncm9sed~tt~ w me t who smo e_ dJtLthe S•~. V+ third_ trimestef of pregnancyLUpeeially-itthcy-soked heavi~ly (> 10 cigarettes per day). Using data from a longitudinal study of pregnant women, Van den Berg and Oechsli (1984) re'ported rates of preterm delivery (537 weeks) among never smokers, smokers who stopped at the beginning of pregnancy, and continuing smokers for 10,947 white women whose singleton pregnancies progressed beyond 22 weeks. The rate of preterm delivery %yas 5.4 percent in never smokers, 6.8 percent in quitters, and 7.6 percent in continuing smokers. The difference in the rate of preterm delivery between never smokers and quitters was not statistically significant (p>0.05); however, the difference ~~ between never smokers and continuing smokers was significant. In a population-based case-control study of white and black women delivering singleton infants without congenital anomalies in a large urban county. Petitti and Coleman (in press) reported that the estimated relative risk of very low birthweight (<1,500 g) or of other preterm births among black and white women who quit smoking prior to the fourth month of gestation was not increased in comparison with those of nonsmokers. The estimated relative risk of very low birthweight (<1,500 g) in continu- ing smokers was 2.5 for whites and 3.1 for blacks and that of other preterm births was 2.0 for whites and 3.7 for blacks. MacArthur and Knox (1988) examined gestational duration according to smoking during pregnancy. Mean gestational len th was 1.7 da s shorter amon continuin$ smokers than nonsmokers. m a with nonsmokers, gestational periods were 0.4 days shorter or womcn wJ smokin¢ by the 6th week o prcgnancy .5 days longer 386 L6ZL OiLZS for women who quit between the 6th and 16th weeks of pregnancy, and 0.3 days longer for women who quit after the 16th week of pregnancy. Because of the limited data on the risk of preterm delivery among women who quit smoking after conception, a finn conclusion about beneft, or lack of benefit• at- tributable to smoking cessation for this pregnancy outcome cannot be drawn. Complications of Pregnancy Women who smoke during pregnancy are at increased risk of bleeding during pregnancy and of placenta previa and abruptio placentae (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980; Naeye 1978; Naeye 1980). These women are probably at decreased risk of preeclampsia (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980; Marcoux, Brisson, Fabia 1989). Few data on these pregnancy complications among former smokers are available. In Naeye's (1980) analysis of data from the Collaborative Perinatal Project, smoking for more than 6 years (but not short-term smoking) was found to be associated with a relative risk of 1.6 to 1.9 for abruptio placentae and a relative risk of 2.4 to 2.8 for placenta previa. Women who had stopped smoking by their first prenatal visit were not at increased risk of abruptio placentae, but were still at twofold increased risk of placenta previa if they were long-term smokers. However, the latter result was based on only 18 exposed cases. Marcoux. Brisson, and Fabia (1989) found that, compared with women who had never smoked, those who smoked at the time of conception were protected from preeclampsia (estimated relative risk (RR)=0.51), whereas women who smoked but quit prior to conception had the same risk of preeclampsia as neversmokers (RR-0.97). Women who smoked at conception but quit prior to 20 weeks' gestation were not as protected from development of preeclampsia as were continuing smokers. Because of the otherwise serious adverse effects of smoking on the fetus, this minor "benefit" of smoking during pregnancy probably has no public health consequence. Randomized Trials of Smoking Cessation During Pregnancy Three randomized trials have been conducted on pregnancy outcome in relation to advice to stop smoking (Donovan 1977; Sexton and Hebel 1984; MacArthur. Newton, Knox 1987). Table 9 summarizes the studies and birthweight results. Two other randomized trials have also been conducted on the effect of various programs on smoking cessation rates among pregnant women (Ershoff, Mullen, Quinn 1989; Windsor et al. 1985), and other trials are in progress. Information on pregnancy outcome is not available, and these studies are not reviewed. Donovan (1977) studied smokers in three matemity units in England. Women aged 35 years or younger at the start of pregnancy, who smoked more than 5 cigarettes per day, who had less than 30 weeks of gestation at the first prenatal visit, and who had no prior perinatal deaths, were randomly assigned to a control group that received usual prenatal care or to a test group that was given intense individual antismoking advice by a physician at each prenatal care unit. There were 263 women in the test group and 289 in the control group. Mean daily cigarette consumption decreased from 17.1 cigarettes per day early in pregnancy to 9.2 cigarettes perday late in pregnancy in the intervention 387

7 pared with never smokers. A I I former smokers had a 1.6-fold increase, but this increase was limited to those who had quit within the preceding 8 years. Longer durations of abstinence yielded an odd; ratio of 1.0. Concerns about the possibility of differences in sexual activity between smokers and nonsmokers and the occurrence of STDs limit the ability todraw fimi conclusions about the association of smoking with ectopic pregnancy. There is little information about former smokers, and consequently, no conclusion can be drawn. Some data suggest an association between smoking and increased risk of spontaneous abortion (US DHHS 1989). Data on smoking cessation are very sparse. Kline (1984) noted that the adverse effect of smoking observed in a case-control study of smoking and spontaneous abortion (Kline et al. 1977) was limited to current, not fonner, smokers. Alberman and colleagues (1976) found that the proportion of spontaneous abortions with abnormal karyotypes decreased with increased smoking but was identi- cal for neversmokers and women who stopped smoking prior to pregnancy (Albcnnan et al. 1976). The interpretation of this finding is uncertain. Fetal, Neonatal, and Perinatal Mortality Information linking cigarette smoking with an increased risk of the various measures of mortality used to assess pregnancy outcome has been reviewed in previous reports of the Surgeon General and other publications (US DHEW 1979; US DHHS 1980: US DH HS 1986). Table 3 provides data on perinatal and neonatal mortal ity from the earl ier reports of the Surgeon General (US DHEW 1979: US DHHS 1980) and adds informa- tion from a more recent publication on the topic (Rush and Cassano 1983). The studies ~ o~nsistent i' hi her mortality in children born to women who smoke. The high risk of mortality is indepen ent of various factors, such as educatton an social class, that are also associated with mortality. Kleinman and colleagues (1988) assessed the effect of smoking on fetal and infant mortality in 362.621 births in Missouri during 1979-1983. Using multivariate statisti- cal techniques, these investigators estimated the effects of smoking on fetal and infant mortality~among black and white primiparous and multiparous women. After adjust- ment for marital status, education, and age, fetal plus infant mortality rates were 25 to 56 percent higher in smokers for all categories of maternal race and parity. The elevations in the estimated risks of fetal plus infant mortality were statistically sig- nificant in all categories. In further analyses ofdata from the Missouri births and deaths, Malloy and coworkers (1988) showed that the relative risk of fetal plus infant mortality among whites was significantly elevated for the infants of women who smoked in all categories of low binhweight, even after adjustment for marital status, education, age, and parity (Table 4).

The results may depend on the duration and dose ofexposure, as well as on the ages at which exposure takes place. Moreover, the relevance to humans of the large doses given to the animals is uncertain. None of these investigations considered spermatogenesis after exposure ended: thus, few conclusions may be drawn regarding the effect of cessation of exposure even within the limitations of the animal studies. 406 407 LOEL OZLZS

'a Intruuuetion Age at Natural Menopause TABLE 13.--Summary of studies reporting relationship of cigarette smoking and age at natural menopause 'Rte significance of menopause extends beyond marking the end of femalc reproduc- tive potential. The age at which menopause occurs also may have implications for thc risks of osteoporotic fractures, ischemic heart disease, and cancers of the reproductive system. Thus, the effect of smoking on the age of menopause could have potentially broad health implications. In fact, an early natural menopause has been observed consistently among women who smoke cigarettes. As summarized in Table 13. the major studies addressing this topic have indicated that currently smoking women cease menstruating from I to 2 years earlier than otherwise similar nonsmokers. Expressed as relative risk, women aged 44 to 54 years who smoke become menopausal at about twice the rate of ne+er smokers (Willett et al. 1983; Bailey, Robinson, Vessey 1977; Hartz et al. 1987; Andersen, Transbol, Christiansen 1982; Baron 1990). Several features of the data suggest that this is a causal relationship. By using both cohort and cross-sectional methodology with a variety of subject populations, the results have been replicated repeatedly in studies in several areas of the United States and Europe. Dose-response effects have generally been found, with heavy smokers experiencing an even earlier menopause on average than light smokers. However, these trends have not always been assessed with formal tests of statistical significance in the reports describing the data. Several studies demonstrating this association have con- trolled for potential covariates. That premenopausal smokers may be more likely than nonsmokers to have a hysterectomy does not appear to explain the relationship (Krailo and Pike 1983). Pathophysiologic Framework There are at least three ways in which cigarette smoking could lead to an early natural menopause. Experiments with laboratory rodents indicate that the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons found in cigarette smoke may be directly toxic to ovarian follicles (Mattison 1980). Mattison and colleagues found that intraperitoneal injection of benzo(a)pyrene, 3-methylcholanthrene, or 7,12-dirnethylbenz(a)anthtracene led to ovarian follicular atresia (Mattison and Thorgeirsson 1978,1979; Gulyas and Mattison 1979). Earlier uncontrolled studies of prolonged exposure of mice to cigarette smoke led to similar findings (Essenberg, Fagan, Malerstein 1951), which were also seen in a later controlled study.of rats (Subbarao,1988). However, other investigators failed to find ovarian atrophy in rodents chronically exposed to cigarette smoke (Haag,larson, Weatherby 1960; Dontenwill et al. 1973a), and in most studies, parenteral nicotine or tobacco extract has had minimal effect on the ovaries of experimental animals (Essen- berg. Fagan. Malerstein 1951; Thienes 1960; Larson, Haag. Silvette 1961; Larson and Silvette 1968). The other two postulated mechanisms for premature menopause do not involve direct ovarian toxicity. Cigarette smoking may interfere with luteinizing hormone release at 396 Source and number Reference ofsubjects 1ick, Porter, Morrison 2.143 hospital patients (1977) in Boston area 1.391 hospital patients in 7 countries Daniell (1978) 500 patients B ai ley.

with that of nonsmokers (l'sitouras, Manin, Hamtan 1982; Diokno, Brown, Herzog 1990); in a cross-sectional study of younger men, no differences were indicated ( Vogt, Flcller, Borelli 1986). Adolescent smokers are more sexually active than nonstnokcrs (Russell 1971 : Malcolm and Shcphard 1978). In contrast. Cendron and Vallery-Mas- son (1971)- in studying 70 men older than age 45, found that those who rcported smoking between ages 25 to 40 also reported being less sexually active at those ages than those who denied smoking. Overall, it appears that the relation between current cigarette smoking and the level of male sexual activity is not very strong. Among younger males, personality differences between smokers and nonsmokers may dominate any adverse physiologic effects (Russell 197I ). 11', as the aforementioned studies suggest, current smokers (or ever smokers) are similar in sexual habits to never smokers, then no differences would be expected for former smokers. Vogt, Heller, and Borelli (1986) evaluated 239 healthy male volun- teers aged 19 to 40 without genital abnormalities or diseases and taking no medications. The study results indicated that the 36 former smokers among them were comparable with both never smokers and current smokers in sexual activity (Vogt. Heller. Borelli 1986). Impotence, the inability to maintain an erection sufficient for intcrcourse, has been more extensively investigated in relation to smoking. Among treated hypertensives aged 40 to 64, cigarette smokers were more likely to report impotence, although the differences were modest and not statistically significant (Buhler et al. 1988). A statistically significant association was reported among men undergoing radiation therapy for prostatic cancer (Goldstein et al. 1984). However, in both studies, poten- tially important covariates, such as alcohol intake and age, were not considered. Two other studies of men undergoing impotence evaluation indicated a high prevalence of smoking and suggested an association between smoking with impotence (Virag. Bouilly. Frydman 1985: Condra et al. 1986). Unfortunately, neither study included a sexually functional control group, and both studies based their conclusions on ques- tionable comparisons of the smoking rate in theirclinic patients with that of the general population. Vogt. Hcller, and Borelli (1986) studied a group of young volunteers without selecting for impotence. These investigators found that smokers reported more difficulties with decreased libido and erection than nonsmokers (Vogt. Heller. Borelli 1986). This analysis did not consider fomier smokers separately. An acute effect of srnoking on sexual performance is suggested by a study of smokers monitored while viewing erotic films (Gilbert. Hagen. D'Agostino 1986). The succes- sive smoking of 2 cigarettes high in nicotine content significantly impaired the rate of penile diameterchange compared with that observed aftersntoking I cigarette orcating candy. However, the clinical relevance of these observations is unknown because frank impotence was not studied. An important clinical measurement in the evaluation of impotence is the PB1, which indicates the systolic blood pressure in the penis divided by systolic blood pressure in the arm. A low value is considered to be evidence of compromise of the penile blood supply, a factor which may interfere with erection. Several studies of men undergoing evaluation of impotence reported an association between smoking and low P81(Jacobs et al. 1983; Condra et al. 1986; Bornman and Du Plessis 1986; DePalma el al. 1987). 402 S0£L OZLTS M Among impotent diabetics, evidence of nocturnal erections was found less in smokers compared with nonsmokers, thus suggesting an increased risk of vascular compromise in smokers (Takahashl and Hlrata 1988). Howcver, other studies of impotent mcn have not reported differences between sniokers and nonsmokers in vascular measurements (Wabrek et al. 1983; Virag, Bouilly, Frydman 1985: Kaiser ct aI. 1988). Most of these investigations did not consider covariates such as alcohol u.e, although one study suggested that smoking in isolation had little effect and that an association of smoking with an abnonnal PBI may be due to the association of smoking with other arterial risk facturs (Virag. Bouilly, Frydman 1985). In niany of the studies relating smoking and impotence, the investigators did not distinquish nonsmokers as ex-smokers or never smokers. However, two investigations considered former smokers separately (Table 15). Wabrek and associates (1983) studied 120 men who were refemed to a hospital-based erectile dysfunction program. The percentage of former smokers was approximately the same among men with impaired, borderline, and normal PBI- Condra and colleagues (1986) reported on 178 patients also referred for impotence. Former smokers were not separated for analysis, but this study suggests that the PB1 for ex-smokers is more normal than in current smokers (Condra et al. 1986). However, neither study considered important covariates, such as age and alcohol use (Wabrek et al- 1983; Condra et al- 1986). Two recent investigations considered the effect of smoking cessation on impotence. Forsberg and colleagues (1979) noted that two smoking men who were impotent improved thcir functioning after smoking cessation at the same time that measures of penile blood flow improved. However, it is not clear how these two men werc selected for this study, and control subjects were lacking. Elist. Jarman, and Edson (1984) reported on the treatment of 60 impotent men- Twenty nonsmokers were treated with the vasodilator isoxsuprine, and 40 smokers were either advised to stop smoking or advised to stop smoking and also given isoxsuprine. There was no mention of randomization, and there was no untreated control group. Similar proponions im- proved whether given isoxsuprine, convinced to stop smoking, or both (Elist. Jamlan, Edson 1984)- Anlmal data have not elucidated the relation between smoking and either sexual activity or impotence. Soulairac and Soulairac (1972) studied the sexual activity of male rats given either a 0.6 mg/kg or a 1.2 mg/kg dose of nicotine subcutaneously. The sexual activity of the rats after the nicotine administration was compared with that before treatment. Sexual activity was markedly increased with the 0.6 mg/kg dose, and at 1.2 mg/kg there was trembling and twitching and no sexual behavior for 2 to 3 hours- In contrast, exposure to smoke from I cigarette has been shown to interfere with the physiology of erection in male dogs (Juenemann et al. 1987). In sumrnary, the level of sexual activity does not appear to be affected by cigarette smoking. Cigarette smoking may be associated with impaired male sexual pcrfor- mance. Among impotent men, smokers are more likely to have an underlying vascular problem. These associations have been more commonly noted in groups already at high risk of impotence, such as hypertensives and diabetics. However, these associations have not been consistently observed, and the positive findings may be due to the association of smoking with othcr factors such as alcohol use.

Because of limited and uncontrolled data, no conclusions can be drawn regarding sexual performance or PBI among former smokers. Sperm Density and Quality Measurements of sperm density, morphology, and motility are commonly used assessments of sperm quality (Rogers and Russell 1987). Over 20 studies have dealt with the relation of cigarette smoking to sperm density, motility, and morphology (Virr.ian 1968a; Schirren and Gey 1969; Campbell and Harrison 1979; Vogel, Brover- man, Klaiber 1979; Stekhun 1980; Nebe and Schirren 1980: Evans et al. 1981; Godfrey 1981: Rodriguez-Rigau. Smith. Steinberger 1982; Shaarawy and Mahmoud 1982: Buiatti et al. 1984; Andersen. Semczuk, Tabor 1984; Nordenson, Abramsson, Duchck 1984; Handelsman et al. 1984; Hoidas et al. 1985: Kulikauskas, Blaustein, Ablin 1985: Ablin 1986: Rantala and Koskimies 1987; Vogt, Heller, Borelli 1986; Klaiber et al. 1987; Dikshit, Buch. Mansuri 1987; Saaranen et a1.1987; Klaiber and Broverman 1988: Saaranen et al. 1989: Rui, Oldereid, Purvis 1989; Marshbum, Sloan. Hammond 1989; Oldereid et al, 1989). Table 16 summarizes the findings of those studies that reported rnean values for smokers and nonsmokers. In most studies, men smoking cigarettes had lower sperm density, al though Inany of these studies ind icated di fferences that were not statistically significant. The smokers' average sperm density was at least 80 percent that of the nonsmokers. In several studies sperm morphology ormotility was impaired 404 90£L 01LZ5 in smokers compared with nonsmokers, but this was a Icss consistent finding. Few studies have considered the spemtatic chromosomal characteristics of smokers com- pared with nonsmokers. Nordenson. Abramsson, and Duchek (1984) found smokers to have more chromosome breaks than nonsmokers, but Oldereid and coworkers (1989) reported no differences in DNA condensation as assessed by flow cytofnetry. Although differences in mean values of any of these measurements suggest an effect of smoking, the most relevant parameter may be the percentage of smokers and nonsmokers who exhibit deficiencies in sperm density, morphology, or motility. Several researchers have investigated the relative risk of azoospermia (no sperm in the ejaculate) or oligospermia (reduced number of sperm) in smokers versus nonsmokers or never smokers (Table 17). Although the range of relative risks is wide, there is a clear pattern of increased risk among smokers. However, the clinical significance of oligospermia is uncertain. Most studies have used one ejaculate per man, although the within-man coefficient of variation can be as much as 60 percent (Schenkeret a1.1988). The available information suggests that current smoking is related to low sperm density. However, these data are limited. Many studies investigated men visiting infertility clinics, limiting generalization. Moreover, if male smokers with poor sperm quality are most likely to attend these clinics, selection biases may distort the results. Also, many of these studies were relatively informal. Few of the studies accounted for potentially confounding factors such as alcohol use and age. Less than half of the studies documented that a period of sexual abstinence was required for subjects before giving the sperm sample, and few of the studies analyzed multiple semen specimens as some authorities recommend (Zaneveld and Jeyendran 1988). Most studies have a small number of subjects, and their statistical power is limited for this n;ason. In some of the studies, it is not clear whether former smokers were included in the smoker or nonsmoker group. A few studies investigated ex-smokers (Table 18). One was a case--control study of male infertility in Italy (Buiatti et al. 1984). The cases were azoospermic or oligosper- mic men being treated for infertility at the University of Florence. Controls were University outpatients who had normal sperm counts. There were no significant differences between smoking categories in the percentage of men with low sperm counts. Vogt. Heller, and Borelli (1986) evaluated 239 male volunteers. Among former smokers (those who had smoked for at least 1 year and those who had stopped smoking for at least I year). percent normal spermatozoa, percent young forms, percent old forms, and percent degenerate fortns were comparable with those of never smokers. Stekhun (1980) reported that 42 percent of former smokers had oligospermia compared with 18 percent of never smokers. Schirren and Gey (1969) reported that three men with low sperm density and motility showed substantial increases in these parameters 3 to 6 months after smoking cessation. However, there were no controls defined in this analysis. Because of the limitations of the four studies, no conclusions are possible regarding the effects of smoking cessation on sperm quality in humans. Animal studies have not been particularly informative. In sotne studies, rodents that were heavily exposed to nicotine or cigarette smoke demonstrated testicular atrophy, but this has not been a general finding (Larson. Haag.

I is cunsistcntly more common among unmarried mothers (Schramnt 1980; Rush and Cassano 1983) and nearly one-half of black infants are born to unmarried mothers (NCHS 1982). The low response rate might have also affected the validity of the study. Prager and associates (1984) askcd women how many cigarettes they smoked per day before and after they found out they were pregnant. Among all married respondents, 31 percent smoked before pregnancy. Whites were more likely to smoke than blacks (32 vs. 25 percent). These investigators reported a strong association of smoking with age, with younger mothers more likely to smoke than older mothers. There were even more pronounced gradients with education. Among women with less than a high school education. 50 percent smoked before pregnancy, and this percentage diminished monotonically to 15 percent among women with 16 or more years of education. Among the women in the study (Prager et al. 1984) who smoked prior to pregnancy. 18 percent quit after realizing they were pregnant. White women were somewhat more likely to quit than black women (18 vs. 13 percent). Mothers older than 35 years of age were markedly less likely to quit; only 7 percent did. Again, education had a strong association with quitting; 10 percent of mothers with less than 12 years of education quit, and the percentage increased monotonically to 24 percent among mothers with 16 or more years of education. The patterns of cessation by amount of smoking are also of interest. Women who were smoking I to 10 cigarettes per day at the time of pregnancy recognition were far more likely to quit than women smoking 11 or more cigarettes per day (31 vs. 12 percent). Among the heavier smokers, 27 percent reduced their consumption to 10 or fewer cigarettes per day even though they did not quit. Williamson and associates (1989) used data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveil- lance System in 1985 and 1986 to compare smoking patterns among pregnant and nonpregnant women. Data were collected through 19,124 telephone interviews of a population-based sample of women in 26 States, with ascertainment of current preg- nancy staius, smoking history, and current smoking practices. Women pregnant at the time of interview were less likely to be current smokers than nonpregnant women (21 vs. 30 percent), but had a similar likelihood of ever having smoked (43 vs. 45 percent). The proportion of former smokers was thus greater among pregnant women (22 vs. 15 percent), largely accounting for the difference in current smoking patterns. This study (Williamson et al. 1989) suggests that if 30 percent of women pregnant at the time of the survey smoked prior to pregnancy, then 30 percent of smokers would have had to quit after becoming pregnant to account for the reported smoking rate of 21 percent. Among pregnant women who smoked, the mean number of cigarettes consumed per day was 12, compared with 20 cigarettes per day among nonpregnant women who smoked. These data suggest that smokers who do not quit upon becoming pregnant tend to reduce their cigarette consumption (Williamson at al. 1989). Patterns of smoking were generally similar across demographic subgroups, with one important exception. Among unmarried women, smoking was slightly more common in pregnant than nonpregnant women (36 vs. 34 percent), implying no change in smoking among unmarried pregnant women. The absence of pregnancy-related reduc- tion in smoking for unmarried women was due exclusively to a markedly higher smoking prevalence for white unmarried pregnant women. The results suggest that data on married mothers cannot be generalized to unmarried mothers. A number of investigators reported smoking patterns in selected populations, such as women delivering in a particular hospital or geographic region or those receiving prenatal care at a specific clinic. Table I I summarizes several of these studies. Although none are true probability samples, these studies provide an indication of the diversity of smoking and smoking cessation among different populations. The propor- tion quitting during pregnancy ranges from 6 to 49 percent. Time Trends in Smoking and Smoking Cessation Kleinman and Kopstein (1987) compared the pattern of smoking cessation during pregnancy from the similarly designed 1967 and 1980 NNS. Although there were some changes in the proportion of mothers who were married at the time of each of the two surveys.and the characteristics of nonrespondents might have varied, the surveys provide a unique opportunity to assess temporal trends in smoking and smoking cessation during pregnancy. The percentage of mothers who smoked prior to pregnancy decreased markedly during that period, from 45 to 30 percent for white mothers and 40 to 25 percent for black mothers. The percentage of white mothers who quit after pregnancy rose from I 1 to 17 percent between the two surveys, whereas the percentage of black mothers who quit decreased from 17 to 11 percent over that interval. During the interval between the surveys, the diminution of smoking during pregnancy was more pronounced for highly educated women, increasing the differential exposure to tobacco by educational status (Kleinman and Kopstein 1987). Estitnates of Attributable Risk Percent Although several measures of attributable risk are commonly used to describe the burden of disease associated with an exposure, the most recent report of the Surgeon General (US DHHS 1989) has focused on attributable risk percent, frequently termed etiologic fraction, as the most relevant measure of the likely public health impact of smoking cessation. Calculation of the attributable risk percent uses the formula as follows: R(R-I)p ARperctnr = I(RR-1)p)+1 where p is the proportion of persons with the exposure and RR is an estimate of the relative risk of the outcome in those who are exposed compared with those unexposed. At least three different studies (Meyer, Jonas, Tonascia 1976; McIntosh 1984; Kramer 1987) estimated the relative risk of several pregnancy outcomes after reviewing the research literature. Table 12 summarizes these studies and provides estimates of attributable risk for prevalences of smoking of 20, 30, 40, and 50 percent based on the relative risk estimates from the three studies. As noted earlier, demographic subgroups of women differ markedly in smoking prevalence. Of those women with less than a high school education, 50 percent smoked during pregnancy; of those women with some college education, 20 percent smoked during pregnancy (NCHS 1988).

The most recent estimates suggest that about 25 percent of U.S. women smoke throughout pregnancy (NCHS 1988). The relative risk estimates for perinatal mortality and preterm delivery are remarkably- c_onsistem,~ecially cpn~dering`tfiai i ie e authors conductedindependen syntheses of the literature. Estimates of the relative risk of low birthweig t~Rm 1.81 (Mclntosh 1984) to 2.42 (Kramer 1987), probably because of differences in the number of studies used to derive the estimate. For this reason, attributable risk percent for a given prevalence of smoking is more variable for low birthwcight than for perinatal mortality and prcterm delivery. Based on data that indicate that about 25 percent of U.S. women smoke throughou pregnancy, it can be estimated tTat to pe_ perinatal deathe l7 to 26 percent_ of low birt weight births and 7 to 10 rcent of reterm deliveries could be revented 6y'~ttttlln on o smoking during pregnancy.

The Collaborative Perinatal Project (27) associated smoking with term PROM but not ptzterm PROM. However, recent studies have shown a consistent rela- tionship between prLterm PROM and smoking (28, 29). Further studies controlling for differences in maternal sexual activity and in maternal genital tract pathogens are needed to assess the association between smoking and PROM. Surprisingly, a number of studies suggest that ma- ternal smoking decreases the risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension by 50%, with a dose-dependent relation- ship (30). The proposed mechanism is nicotine inhibi- tion of thrombozane A, production. Prematurity Pmmaturity has been shown in several studies to have an estimated RR of 1.2-1.5 in smokers compared with nonsmokers (5). In a prospective study of 30,596 preg- nartt women (31), preterm births (delivered at less than 37 weeks of gestation) were 20% more common in women smoking more than one pack per day while pregnant than in nonsmokers. The analysis controlled for maternal age, education, the time of initiation of prenatal care, and alcohol consumption, among other confounding variables. In a recent study attempting to characterize trxsons for higher rates of preterm births in black women compared with white women,10% of the excess risk in black women was attributed to cigarette smoking (32). Birth Weight In a large number of cpidemiologic studies, it has been shown that the mean birth weight of infants of women who smoke during pregnancy is 170-200 g less than that of infants of nonsmoktrs.'Ihis difference persists even after controlling for confounding variables such as maternal age, parity, maternal weight gain and energy intake (33), social class, level of education, and alcohol consumption. Ibe consistency of the association between smok- ing and lower birth weight supports a probable causal relationship. From the literature it is difficult to deter- mine whether this difference in birth weight is due to preterm deliveries of appropriate-weight babies or in- trauterine growth retardation of term babies. It is most likely a combination of the two. Theit is an increased rate of prtiterm deliveries among pregnant women who smoke. Smokers also have a 3.5-4.0-fold increase in small-for-gcstational-age infants compared with non- smokers (34); newborns of smokers are smaller at every gestational age. The women who stop smoking before 16 weeks of gestation have infants with birth weights similar to those of babies of women who never smoked (35). Proposed mechanisms for the decrease in birth weight include hypoxia due to carbon monoxide, pla- 4 cental vascular problems due to nicotine, decreased transfer of amino icids across the placentas of smokers, and, most recently, decreased availability of zinc. Ciga- nette smoke contains cadmiutn, which acts as a zinc antagonist. Zinc has been identified as an important alloenryme of prrgnancy, and low zinc concentrations in maternal and cord blood have been related to intrau- torine growthrrtardation (36). Reduction in birth weight after cadmium czposure has been reported in mice as well as in women with occupational exposure to cad- mium (37). Periaatal Outcomes Multiple recent studies have demonstrated a clear asso- ciation between maternal smoking and perinatal loss. Placentapttvia, abruptio placentae, andpretermPROM were responsible for most of the perinatal losses in smokers.'I'hese epidemiologic studies report an asso- ciation between smoking and perinatal mortality but do not establish a causal relationship. Most studies have not found a relationship between smoking in pregnancy and birth defeeu, childhood cancer, or long-term neurologic sequelae (38). Several studies of sudden infant death syndrome have found maternal smoking in pregnancy to be an important risk factor (39). Smoking Cessation Approximately one third of women are smokers at the time they conceive. Although a causal relationship has not been proven for all of smoking's adverse effects on fertility, it may be prudent for women attempting to become pregnant to reduce or stop smoking cigarettes. It has been estimated that if all pregnant women stopped smoking, a 10% reduction of infant and fetal deaths would be seen (40). Approximately 20% of smokers quit by the time of their first prenatal visit (S). Despite regular contact with health canrs providers who give current antismoking advice, however, only 6% give up smoking later in pregnancy (41). The most successful efforts in smoking cessation during pregnancy involve interventions that emphasize how to stop smoking and do not just provide antismok- ing advice. A prospective, randomized, controlled clin.i- cal trial of an intensive smoking reduction program with substantial patient contact and supervision (initial visit plus telephonecontact at least monthly) bas been shown to aid in smoking cessation during pregnancy and to increase birth weights (4). In a morz recent study eval- uating the efficacy of a low-cost smoking cessation pro- gram during pregnancy, initial patient education with supportive contact throughout pregnancy resulted in an improved rate of smoking cessation during the im- I'm Nw Ln ~ J ~ \r B

3 \ \ control studies have shown an approximately doubled risk of ectopic pregnancy when the mother smoked at the time of conception (11). In a multinational study of 1,108 women with confirmed ectopic pregnancies, the frequency of ectopic pregnancy was higher in smokers than in nonsmokers (OR, 2.2-4.0, depending on the subgroup) (12). The analysis was adjusted for pelvic inflammatory disease and intrauterine device use. Spontaneous Abortion Large epidemiologic studies in developed countries have demonstrated that smokeas have 1.2 to 1.8 times as many spontaneous abortions as nonsmokers. Given a background level of clinically apparent spontaneous abortions of approximately 15%, this results in a mis- carriage rate of 18-27% for smokers (6). In a large case-control study matched for maternal age, parity, obstetric history, marital status, socioeco- nomic status, and race, spontaneous abortions were 80% more common in smokers than in nonsmokers. Although no dose-dependent rrs-ponse was demon- strated in this study (13), another study has found the risk to increase with heavy smoking (14).'I'his can be contrasted with a larger prospective study of 32,000 women which found a nonsignificant ItR of only 1.2 after controlling for alcohol consumption (15). In vitro fertilization studies allow controlling for confounding variables. In such a study of 447 couples, there were no significant differences in number of eggs retrieved, fert.ilization rates, or implantation rates be- twecn smokers and nonsmokers. The incidence of spon- taneous abortion, however, was 42.1 % in smokers com- pared with 18.9% in nonsmokers (16). Kline u al evaluated 979 karyotyped spontaneous abortions (17). Spontaneous abortions of smokers were 39% more likzly to be chromosomally normal than those of nonsmokers. Tbig suggests that the mechanism is not genetic. Male Reproductive Function In a number of studies, a consistent association between smoking and impaired sperm concentration, motility, and morphology has been found (18, 19). Some evi- dence supports that cessation of smoking may improve sperm density and motility.; Effects on Pregnancy Various effects of cigarette smoking on pregnancy have been studied. They include placental changes, preg- nancy complications, and perinatal loss (Table 1). Pathophyslology Carbon monoxide and nicotine are thought to be the main ingredients in cigarette smoke responsible for adverse fetal effects. These products cause fetal by- poxia and blunt the nornZally adaptive response to the insult. Carbon monoxide has a 200 times greater affin- ity for adult hemoglobin than does oxygen and an even higher affinity for fetal hcmoglobin, resulting in a decrease in oxygen-carrying capacity. When carbon monoxide binds to fetal hemoglobin, there is also a shift of the oxygen dissociation curve to the left, resulting in greater hemoglobin-oxygen binding and decreased availability of oxygen to the tissues. 'Ibe pulmonary vascular bed serves as an effective route for drug administration; one puff of a cigarette is equal to an intravenous injection of 0.1 mg of nicotine. Nicotine's action on the adrenal gland results in in- creased levels of circulatory norepinephrine, epineph- rine, and acerylcholine, which leads to a decrease in uteroplacental perfusion. Nicotine crosses the placenta and increases blood pressure in the fetus, either directly or indinectly thrnugh the adrenal gland, and also de- creases fetal breathing (20). It may also affect the gastrointestinal, genital, urinary, and central nervous systems (21). Placental Changes Placental changes found in smokers include hypcr- trophy, a decrease in vasculosyncytial membranes, cytotrophoblastic cell proliferation, focal syncytial ne- crosis, decreased pinocytosis, and thickening of the trophoblastic basement membrane (22) as well as calci- fication (23). Many of these changes are typically seen in cases of chronic hypoxia and ischemia. 7he volume density of fetal vessels in terminal villi is decreased, signifying a loss in the exchange area of smokers' pla- centas (24). Tobacco smoke has been shown to depress active uptake of amino acids by the placenta (25). Pregnancy Complications Women who smoke during pregnancy have a higher risk of abruptio placentae, placenta previa, and prema- ture rupture of membranes (PROM). In the Collabora- tive Perinatal Project study, abruptio placentae was 1.5 times mors common and was more likely to result in perinatal mortality in smokers than in nonsmokas. Pla- cental pathologic changes found in abruptio placentae, such as decidual necrosis and large infarcts, were more common in cigarette smokers. When women stopped smoking prior to their first prenatal visit, decidual necrosis was found less fi+cquentiy and thero were 50% fewer fetal and neonatal deaths due to abruptio placen- tae (26). Historically, placenta psevia and smoking have been linked. However, because of the difficulty in clinically distinguishing placental abruption from pre- via, additional studies relying upon the ultrasound diag- nosis of placenta previa arc needed to confurn this association. .1

l menopause. Like current smokers, former smokers may be more likely to be passively exposed to passive smoking than never smokers, thus possibly affecting menopausal age. These factors would tend to lead to an exaggeration of the apparent impact of fomier smoking on menopausal age (Chapter 2). Thcrefore, the results summari-r.ed above may overstate the degree to which former smoking is associated with any disturbance in menopausal age. It appears that age at menopause in fonner smokers is closer to that of never srnokers than to current smokers, and the data are consistent with a decline in the risk of early menopause with the cessation of smoking. The effect of smoking on menopausal age may be partly or wholly reversible with cessation of smokingduring the premenopausal years. However, some pertinent data are lacking. Most of the studies did not consider how long it takes after cessation of smoking for the risk of early natural menopause to decrease. No studies have verified that the women who stopped smoking had a lifetime smoking exposure similar to that of women who continued smoking. PART II. MALE Introduction Cigarette smoking has been considered to be associated with impairment of male sexual functioning, and tobacco abstinence has been recommended for men attempting to maximize sexual performance (Larson. Haag. Silvette 1961: Sterling and Kobayashi 1975; Ochsner 1971a,b). An association between smoking and impaired sexual per- formance among men has been publicized in the lay press (Reuben 1988). Although some data provide evidence for this association, they are inconclusive. Pathophysiologic Framework Three general types of mechanisms have been proposed to explain the harmful effect of cigarette smoking on sexual perfortnance, impotence, and sperm quality. First, smoking may expose the testes to compounds that arc directly toxic to the sperm- producing germinal epithelium, to early sperm forms, or to the hormone-producing Leydig cells. Tlte effects on sperm may be a manifestation of a genotoxic effect of cigarette smoke constituents (Obe and Herha 1978; DeMarini 1983). Second, smoking causes atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease (Chapter 6); this may translate into a diminished vascular supply to the genitals,as reflected by the penile brachial index (PBI) and other vascular measurements. A diminished vascular supply to the genitals would compromise sexual perrorrnance and spermatogenesis and hor- mone production. Although atherosclerosis is often considered a fixed lesion, several studies have suggested that atherosclerotic plaques may regress with appropriate lifestyle changes (Bamdt et al. 1977: Nikkila 1980; Kramsch et 21. 1981; Chapter 6). However, no studies have been conducted on the effect of smoking cessation on regression of atherosclerotic lesions. ~ 1 Nonatherosclerotic vascular changes may also mediate the effect of smoking on genital function. The vasoconstrictive effects of nicotine in cigarette smoke may impair the complicated vascular processes involved in erection (Benowitz 1988). This may be due in part to disturbances of prostaglandin production in the vascularendothetiurn or to an enhancement of platelet aggregation noted by several investigators (Nadler. Velasco. Horton 1983; Alsteret al. 1986; Tayloret al. 1987: Lassila et al. 1988;1eremy et al. 1986: FitzGerald. Oates. Nowak 1988; Chapter6). Finally, hormonal effects of cigarette smoking could alter sexual responsiveness and spermatogenesis. Alterations in the secretion of luteinizing hormone releasing hor- mone (Moss, Riskind, Dudley 1979) or catecholamines (Patra. Sanyal, Biswas 1979;. Klaiber and Broverman 1988) are two such possibilities, but disturbances in sex hormones, particularly low testosterone or high estradiol, have been suggested more often. In general, men who smoke cigarettes have similar or higher testosterone levels than nonsmokers; thus, it is difficult to associate low testosterone with sexual dysfunc- tion among men who smoke (Briggs 1973: Shaarawy and Mahmoud 1982: Andersen. Semczuk, Tabor 1984; Handelsman et al. 1984: Deslypere and Vermeulen 1984; Vermeulen and Deslypere 1985; Vogt. Heller. Borelli 1986; Barrett-Connor and Khaw 1987; Dai et al. 1988; Lichtenstein et al. 1987; Meikle et al. 1987; Klaiber and Broverman 1988). The adrenal androgens (i.e.. androstenedione. dehydroepiandrosterone, and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) are elevated in male smokers (Barrett-Connor, Khaw. Yen 1986; Barrett-Connor and Khaw 1987: Dai et al. 1988). Aromatization of these hormones may explain the elevated levels of estradiot among males who currently smoke (Entrican. Mackie. Douglas 1978: LLindholm et al. 1982; Klaiber, Broverman, Dalen 1984; Barrett-Connor and Khaw 1987: Lichtenstein et al. 1987; Dai et al. 1988: Klaiber and Broverman 1988). Elevations in circutating estrogens may interfere with spermatogenesis and sexual behavior(Klaiberand Brover- man 1988); such an explanation remains speculative. Several studies have suggested that the estradiol and testosterone levels of former smokers are comparable with those of never smokers (Deslypere and Vermeulen 1984; Vogt, Heller, Borelli 1986; Barrett-Connor and Khaw 1987; Lichtenstein et al. 1987). This observation implies that smoking cessation is likely to reverse anyeffect mediated by disturbances of these hormones. Altematively, former smokers may have had a lower total dose. Androstenedione and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate levels may be modestly higher in former smokers compared with those of never smokers (Barrett- Connor. Khaw, Yen 1986; Barrett-Connor and Khaw 1987; Lichtenstein et al. 1987). However, the relevance of these findings to sexual capabilities is unlikely to be significant. These hormones appear to have little intrinsic potency, and are important because of their capacity for conversion to more active hormones such as testosterone and estradiol (Baxter and Tyrrell 1987). Sexual Activity and Performance Surveys of ttte relationship between smoking and frequency of sexual episodes (intercourse or masturbation) have generally found smokers to be as sexually active as ttonstttokers. In two studies of elderly men, sexual activity in smokers was comparable 400 VOEL OLLTS 401

l least in rodents exposed to parenteral nicotine orcigarette smoke (Andersson et al. 1980; Andersson et al. 1984; Andersson et al. 1988; Eneroth et al. 1977a,b; Kanematsu and Sawyer 1973: Blake, Norman, Sawyer 1974: Blake 1974: Blake et al. 1972a.b; McLean. Rubel. Nikitovitch-Winer 1977). This effect appears to be due to a nicotinic effect on ncurotransmitter release. A return to a more normal function after the end of exposure to smoke or nicotine has not becn documented, but it seems likely that such a nicotinic effect on the brain would not be permanent. Therefore, it is possible that in humeuu, smoking could cause a reversible interference in the pituitary-ovarian axis, which could lead to a cessation of inenses. Several investigators found that smoking has been associated with menstrual irregularity earlier in reproductive life (Wood 1978; Pet- tersson, Fries, Nillius 1973; Brown, Vessey.Stratton 1988; Hammond 196I). Smoking has also been associated with disturbances of estradiol metabolism. Mich- novicz and colleagues (1986) found that premenopausal smokers tend to metabolize estradiol-through pathways producing more catechol-estrogen metabolites than non- smokers. This change would be expected to result in a relative antiestrogenic influence because of the lack of estrogenic potency of the catechol-estrogens compared with the estrogenic metabolites, such as estriol, which are produced in larger amounts in nonsmokers. There is also evidence that nicotine may inhibit aromatase, an enzyme important in the synthesis of estrogens (Barbieri, McShane, Ryan 1986; Barbieri, Gochberg, Ryan 1986). Again, the recovery of normal enzymatic function after cessation of smoking has not been studied. However, it is postulated that these or similar disturbances could result in enough antagonism of estrogen effect to cause an early cessation of menstrual cycling in women already in the perimcnopausal years (Baron, LaVecchia, Levi 1990) Studies of Former Smokers Former smokers experience menopause only slightly earlier than never smokers (Table 14). In a study of hospitalized women, lick, Porter, and Morrison (1977) found that formcr smokers had a median age at menopause between that of never smokers and that of women currently smoking half a pack of cigarettes per day. Kaufman and coworkers (1980) reported on hospitalized women aged 60 to 69 years. Data from 10 women who stopped smoking before age 35 indicated that the mean age at menopause was 0.2 years earlier than in never smokers, after adjustment for parity and body habitus (Kaufman et al. 1980). In a cross-sectional study of women attending a screening clinic, Adena and Gallagher (1982) found ex-smokers to have a median age of natural menopause 0.3 years earlier than never smokers. Finally. Hiatt and Fireman (1986) found among a group of enrollees in a prepaid health plan attending a screening clinic that ex-smokers reached menopause about 0.5 years earlier than never smokers. Thus, natural menopause appears to occur, at most. 6 months earlier in ex-smokers than in never smokers. Limited findings on relative risk of early menopause in fonner smokers are available (Willett et al. 1983; Baron. LaVecchia, Levi 1990). From data presented by Lindquist and Bengtsson (1979) regarding 50-year-old women, it can be calculated that compared with never smokers, former smokers had a relative risk of early menopause of 1.8 398 7 1 'CABLE 14.-Surnmary of studies of age at natural menopause among former smokers Reference Number of ex-smukers Covariates considered lick.

In a prospective study of American nurses, Willett and coworkers (1983) found ex-smokers to have a relative risk of early menopause of 1.1 (95-percent CI, 0.98-1.23) compared with never smokers after adjustment for age, weight, and nulliparity. In this study, those who stopped smoking in the 2 years previously retained a modest increase in risk of early menopause (RR=1.4); after a longer period of abstinence, there was no effect associated with previous smoking (Willett et al. 1983). All the investigations of smoking and menopause have relied on self-report of menstrual status and smoking history. It is unlikely that misclassification with reganl to these features would seriously distort the findings regarding cu.rent smoking, but the results for former smoking may be more susceptible to artifact. In paRicular, some of the study participants who claimed to be former smokers might actual ly have continued to s(noke, or they might have quit for health reasons related to an early natural 399 E0£L 0TLZ5 ...- - .,.,.....- -- . _._ _ .. ..._,.._. .

5 mediate postpartum period and possibly during preg- nancy (42). Birth weight was not examined. Use of a smoking cessation chart may help health care providers to track patient contacts with the goal of achieving initial smoking cessation as well as reinforcing that behavior throughout pregnancy. In the general population, approximately 65% of those who stop smoking relapse within 3 months of quitting, and another 10% relapse between 3-6 months, whereas only 3% relapse from 6-12 months (43).'Ihis suggests that women who successfully quit for the 9 months of pregnancy may have a low relapse rate. The high motivation of pregnant women may provide an excellent window of opportunity forachieving smoking cessation. Nicotine replacement therapy, in the form of cbew- ing gum or a nrdnsdetmal patch, has been demonstrated to increase the effectiveness of smoking cessation pro- grams by approximately 50% when evaluated 6 months after the intervention. Use of nicotine gum is contrain- dicated during pregnancy. The package inserts of the nansdcrmal patches suggest that pregnant women not use these therapies unless advised to do so by their doctor because nicocine is considered to be an important mediator of the adverse effects of smoking on mother and fetus. However, nicotine is not the only toxin in cigarttte smoke, and effective replacement therapy with a patch would certainly reduce fetal exposure to carbon monoxide and other toxins. It may be reasonable for an individual who smokes at least 20 cigarettes per day and is otherwise unable to discontinue or decrease her smoking to use the nicotine patch as an adjunct during pregnancy. Circulating nico- tine levels attained with this method arc no greater than, and in most cases less than, those observed in smokers of 20 or more cigarettes per day (44). In the absence of direct data concerning use of the patch during preg- nancy, it is appropriate to inform the patient about the presumed risks and benefits of this approach and to individualize therapeutic decision making. Conclusions S moking tobacco poscs seriotu health risks to all womcn. It is also associated with reproductive health problems such as lower overall fecundity, ovulatory and tubal disorders, increased pcrinatal mortality, bleeding com- plications of pregnancy, decreased mean birth weight, and higher incidences of small-for-gestational-age ba- bies, low-birth-weight babies, and preterm deliveries. The epidcmiologic studies are supported by our under- standing of the physiologic effects of cigarette smoking on pregnancy. The ultimate goal of the provider is to help a woman to stop smoking, to refrain from smoking during pregnancy, and to avoid relapse after delivery. REFERENCES I.

CONCLUSIONS I. Women who stop smoking before becoming pregnant have infants of the same birthweight as those bom to never smokers. 2. Pregnant smokers who stop smoking at any time up to the 30th week of gestation have infants with higher birthweight than do women who smoke throughout pregnancy. Quitting in the first 3 to 4 months of pregnancy and abstaining throughout the remainder of pregnancy protect the fetus from the adverse effects of smoking on birthweight. 3. Evidence from two intervention trials suggests that reducing daily cigarette con- sumption without quitting has little or no benefit for birthweight. 4. Recent estimates of the prevalence of smoking during pregnancy, combined with an estimate of the relative risk of low birthweight outcome in smokers, suggest that 17 to 26 percent of low birthweight births could be prevented by eliminating smoking during pregnancy; in groups with a high prevalence of smoking (e.g., women with less than a high school education). 29 to 42 percent of low birth weight births might be prevented by elimination of cigarette smoking during pregnancy. 5. Approximately 30 percent of women who are cigarette smokers quit after recogni- tion of pregnancy, with greater proportions quitting among married women and especially among women with higher levels of educational attainment. 6. Smoking causes women to have natural menopause I to 2 years early. Former smokers have an age at natural menopause similar to that of never smokers. I References ABLIN, RJ.

MAY l g 1993 HEC-H a r c0 Uts" __ Numbor 180--Uay 1993 acog_ Technical Bulletin q4A~C_0_ A Ed ti l Aid O n uca ona to bstetrician--Gyneco/ogists Smoking and Reproductive Health Tobacco smoking is asignificantproblem among women today. It is associated with a wide variety of cancers and chronic diseases, most notably respiratory and cardio- vascvlar disorders. Women who smoke cigarettes are 12 times more likely to die from lung cancer than those who have never smoked; smoking is also responsible for 55 % of the cardiovascular deaths in women less than 65 years old (1). In addition, smoking increases the risk of oral cancer, esophageal cancer, bladder cancer, pan- creatic cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and probably cervical cancer. L Despite these adverse effects, 26% of reproductive age women (18-44 years old) smoke, with a mean of 18 cigarettes smoked per day (2). There is a higher pieva- lenct among older women, women with less than high- school education, and black women (3). Advertising targeted at young women entering their reproductive years has successfully expanded the market for ciga- rtttcs, and the prevalence of smoking in this group is on the rise. Thc 1988 National Household Survey revealed that 10% of females 12-17 years old and 35% of females 18-25 years old reported smoking cigarettes in the month prior to the survey. Between 19-30% of pregnant women continue to smoke (2,d), placing themselves and their fetuses atrisY for a n umbcr of adverse teproductive effects. The medi- cal litcranm on smoking and reproductive health is extensive but confusing and difficult to interpret. Ani- mal data cannot always be applied to humans. Epidemiologic studies describe associations between cigarette smoking and specific out.come but cannot prove causality. Such studies may say more about the woman who smokes than smoking itself. Prospective studies, which often rely on seff-reporting of cigarette smoking, are likeiy to be biased Confounding variables such as socioeconomic status, diet, life sryle, weight, sexually transmitted diseases, and associated habits (ie, alcohol, coffee drinking, illicit drug use) must be taken into account. Prospective randomized and controlled studies are not ethically possible. Within these con- straints, this bulletin will address the effects of cigarette smoke on reproductive function and pregnancy. Epidemiology The terms relative risk (RR) and odds ratio (OR) es- timate the association between a certain event or ezpo- sure and the risk of developing a specific outcome. Relative risk is a ratio in which the incidence of disease in the exposed group is divided by the incidence of disease in the nonexposed group. It is appropriately used in cohort studies, meaning prospective or popula- tion-based studies. For caso--control studies, the OR is used. The OR is the odds of ezposure among cases divided by that among control3. When the 95% canfi- denoe interval for the RR or OR includes 1, the findings are not statistically significant (P > 0.05). Composftion of Totracco Smoke There are over 2,500 chemicals identified in tobacco smoke. Many constituents have not been evaluated for their effects on health Two of the major components that azti thought to be responsible for the adverse effects of cigarette smoke are nicotine and carbon monoxide (5). Both active and passive smoking involve the inha- lation of smoke, with systemic absorption via the pul- monary vasculaturc. Effecb on Reprodacth-e Faactloa Overall, there is evidence that women who smoke have lowered fertility (Table 1). Many mechanisms have been postulated for this effect Tobacco smoking has been implicated in disorders of ovulatory function, tuba] function, implantation physiology, oocyte deple- tion, and early pc=gnancy loss (5). Smoking also alters the characteristics of sperm, and this may affect male reproduction as welL Fecandity Smoking reduces overall female fertility as measured by fecundity, the probability of conception for a given

A review of published studies reveals a consistently significant in- cresscd risk of infertility in smokers compared with nonsmokers (RR or OR, 1.3-1.6) (6). The prospective Oxford Family Planning Associa- tion Study monitored 17.000 women for an average of 11.5 years (7). Time from discontinuation of contraeep•- tion to time of birth of a child was tneasured on 6,199 occasions. Fertility rates of women who smoked were approximately 30% lower than those of nonsmokers. After controlling for confounding variables such as age and last method ofbirth control, these resr.archtrs found that 10.7% of womwn smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day bad failed to have a successful pregnancy by 5 years after stopping contraception compared with 5.456 of nonsmokers. Tbe differtnee was minimal for women smoking less than 16 cigarettes per day. Tbe fertility rates of ezsmokers were not significantly different from those of women who had never smoked. Sezually transmitted diseases have been identified as a covariant of smoking in many populations. In the Oxford study, rates of pelvic inflammatory disease were higher in smokers than in n:,n;mokers: Howevcr,- the difference in pelvic inflaaunatory disease did not account for the differtncx in fertility rates in the two groups. Perhaps this is a reflection of differences in immune status related to smoking or differences in life styles of smokers. Ovulatory Dysftznctlon In animal studies, cigarette smoking has been shown to have a negative effect on ovulation. Nicotine can alter gonadotroQin release in a dose-dependent fashion, de- cre1e the lune;nirng hormone surge, inhibit the release of prolactin, and stimulate release of growth hotmone, eottisol, vasopressin, and oxytocin. Changes in the midcycle luteinizing hormone surge may explain the effect of smoking on the menstrual cycle (8). Few well-designed studies have addressed this issue in women. In 1961, Hammond studied 24,000 women and found that the frequency of abnormal vagi- nal bleeding was 67% higher in heavy smokers (those who smoked more than 21 cigarettes per day) than in nonsmokrrs (9). I,utcal estrogen production has been shown to be lower in women who smoke than in non- smokers. This may be due to effects on the hypotha- lamia-pituitary-ovatian axis or direct effects on the follicle. At least 13 studies indicate that smokers cease menstruating 1-2 years earlier than nonsmokers. This effect is dose depcndent, and the difference per%.isrc after controlling for subjects' weight (5, 10). 'Ibbal Fhnction Nicotine altet5 tubal motility in rhesus monkeys and rabbits (8).

1 behavior Irtween fhe IteginninR of pregnancy and llte fourth month MI late frtal and neonatal mortality. A statistically siRnifkant and d.+ee-relRtrl increass in mortality occurred among the infants of mofhers who erontimrod to amoke after the fourth month of pregitancy, as compam4l with lhe Infants of nonsmokers and Uiose of women who smoked prior to Ube pregnancy but gave up smoking by the fourth Inonth of gestation. Niswander and (lordon (8.1) reported data from' the prospective Collahor.tive f erinatal Study of (he National Inwtitute of NeuroloRi- cal Disease and Stroke. The 19,216 pregnancies reaistered at 12 uni- ver.ity hoepitals in the IlniteJ States were alenosf, equally divided bctn•ren black and while women.'I'hey found a nonsignificant im:rearn In perinatal mortality among the intants of white smokera as oompared to those of w-hite nonsawkerd; the overall erotialily ratio was 1.11 (1'>0.1). The infanta of black aaakers, howe.er, had a significantly higher mortality risk than did those of black norwrakers; the mor- tality ratio was 1.18 (1'<O.t/2). lioreo.er, a de8nits dose-response re- lationship between ciRaretles a+noked hy preanant mothers and mortality risk wasshown forblack (nfanla. Black women were noted to s,noke signilicanlly fewer cigareUe., on the acerage, titan while w-omon. ltush and Kau (8!) found, In a praepedi.e study of A,lt1A preR- nanciea followed at Ilnslon City Hospital, a nensilrnifkant increane in late frlal plus neonalal mortality rafe amonA the infants of whits wmnen who annkeil as enmparHl ln Ihnae of while nen.nnkers. Ilow- ever, the infanta of black w•nn*n who smoked had a stalietically sig- nifinnt inenase in mortality rate eompanr! to Ihe infartta nf black nibiuunnker. (i'<0.01). Thn overall mortali,y ratio fnr hl.ck women' who smoked waa 1.80. The diRerenne (n frequency of stillbirth among lhe infanta of sarxlkers and nonanwikers was Ihe primary facfor whirll cnntributed to Uie aigtnificanee of the di8enrnce in mortality rxles Analysis of Previously Reported Studies Previously repnlied studiescan lu di.ided into two Rroups: A group in which the late fetal plus neonatal mortality rates for infants born to cigarette sn.okers were aignifkantly higher than those for flie infants born to nonenwker., and a group in which no significant diRcrrneea were doleeted in the morlality rwtes for the infants hnrn to smnkers and nonsmokers. The rrsults of ae.eral studies (14, 17, !5. 0, 13. US. 84, 9t) yielded mortality rwtios ranging from 1 1R to 1.1R. The resulls of other studies (M. GS,71J.86,1tJ0, 116) yirlded mortality rwtiM ranging from l.nl tn 1.011. Rnth groups contained retrospective and prn.prcti.e sfudiro of comparable aiae. The LRo Qroupe did diRer significantly, however, with regard to control of variables other th cigarette smoking which in8uence perinalal mortality. Factors WhicJl Influence 1'er{natal Mortality Other Than 9mok;ng Dutler and Alberman (1J), on data from lhe British Perinatal Mortality Study, employed a Mgit trnneformatlon analysis of .ariance, and demonst.rafed that nlaterlul height, age, parity, social cl.a, and severe preeclampsla all had a signiflcant independent eRect, on late fetal and neonatal mortality. ILumesu-Roquetle (81) provided evi- dence Uut a pnevious stillbirth or low-birth-weight Infant signi(icantly incrr.ased Uie risk of a future etillbirth. Meyer and Comst.och (Sl) provided examples of how the dlfferrntial distribution of smoJting and other factors which aro related to perinatal mortality, in a polwlation of wolnen, ean Lisr dnts (v.g., blark w•elnr'n ha.e hiRher perinafsl mortality rates than do while women, but black women slnoke less titan whil.e women do. Nence, nonenxlkers will tend to Include more black women, and snakers more white women. This will tend to reduce any di8erenoea between the groups In nattality rstes.) Meyer and Coeletack concluded, "Comparisons of mortality rstes of emokers' and nonseaken' babie. ahould be made within .ubgrouM according to parity, socioeconomic slatus, and other appropriate risk factors, and not separated by birth welRht." In three of the tudies in which a aiRniBcantly higher mortality risk was demonatrated for Uw (nfants of smoken, adjustment for other .ariables was performed. Tba results Indicated that, after such ad- jllstment, a signifieant (ndepstldetlt association between cigarctle nnwking and infant nwKtality persisted (13 and 16, 17, 81). Of the. studies which revealed no signifkant increase in mortality risks for amokers' infants, one (115) oontrolled for race alone. Ilence, at lea.ct part of the discrr.paney in resnlta between the two groups of studie•s may he explained by a lack of control of variables ollier than smoking. Another posnible, at least partial, explanation of the discrepancy in results obtained by the two aeti of dudiea is that cigarette smoke may be more hanm(ul to the ietusea of osrtain women than othera. Several developing lines of evidence suggest that this may be the case: 1. Cigarette smoking and soeloeoonomic baekgroand. hutler, et a1.

SrONTAMCoUa AapeT10N SU1lY/aT Although several iaveatigators have found a significantly higher, doae-related incidenos of spontaneous abortion among cigare,tte smokers as compared to twosinoker., the l.ek of eontrol of significant variables other than eigaret.te smoking doea not permit a Rrm con- cl uaion to bn drawa about thf nature of tha r.latioaship. 8"WlrtA Epidemiologieal studies of the arociation betwean eigarette .mok- ing and stillbirth praviously raviawed ltv the 1971 and 1972 reports on the health consequenoeta of smoking (101,10d) form ths basis for tbe following st•e•......ls • Ia onf groupof rettc.peotive and prospective studies, a higher still- birth rate was found for the Infants of tskakere as compared to those of nonnookers (14, 26, 43). Ia another group of netrospective and proaieWw M.udiesy so signifleant di0ersnea was dat.etad in the still- bi rth rat& aawag the in f aats of amokus and noo.mokers (18, l0, 85, 99, !00). DiLerrroes in study ai=,a, numbers of cigarauest suwked, or the presence a ab•enoe of oontro) of variables, such as age and parity, which may influena stillbirth rates, were probably not suQieient to explain the digerertees (n results obtained. Several receat epidemiolo6ieal dudies have added to our under- standing of the relatiotnhip between cigarette smoking and stillbirth. Niawander and Gordon (GT) have reported data from 30,215 preg- nanein followed prospettively and collected between 1959 and 19tM at 12 university ho.pilals in the United States. A random sample of women wla presented to hoepital prenatal elioin were enrolled in the study. The authors reported no increase in stillbirths among white amokers as eompared with white nonsmokers. A higher incidence of stillhirths was found among black women who amoked than mong non.+mokinR blaek women, and a dcae-response relationship with rigareltn smoked was suRgnted, although the findings did nnt attain alati+tical aigniflcaner. The reailts were not adjusted for other vari- ahlea. Ruah and Kaas (8!) found, in a prospective study of 1,2t1A preRnaneiea at Ro.ton City fioepital, a nonsixnifieant increase in 43R LE£L OtLtS stillbirtha anwng wl:ite women who smoked, bul a statistically Mignifl• eant increase in stillbirths among black women who smoked ( P<O.(Yi). These findings are consistent with those previously outlined by F razier, et aI. (tS) and Underwood, el al. (90). Rumeau-Roquette (81), in a prospective study of 4,824 pregnancies in Paris, demonstrated that the risk of stillbirth was aignificantly higher for cigarette smokers than for nonsmokers (P<0.U01). The wthors also prosented evidence that a woman with either a previous stillbirth or at least one prior infant weighing less than 2,,•,00 grams at birth was significantly more likely to have a future stillborn infant than a woman without such an obstetrical hislory. After previous obstetrical history was controlled, smokera still retained a,tati.-Aically significant increased risk of subsequent stillbirth as comparod to non- smoken (P<0.U1). Of further interest was tbe finding that among women who previously had delivered only living infants, weighing over 2,500 grams, cigarette smoking had no influenoe on the stillbirth rate. Previous experimental studies were reviewed in the 1971 and 1072 reports on the health consequences of smoking (101, 1t)L). The authors demoiuitrated that exposure of pregnant rabbila to tobacco smokc and pregnant rats tc large doses of injected nicotine resulted in a signifi- eant increase in sti l lbirths (7, 8, tJ, 87). SrIuJltaT1t SUMMARY 1. The resudta of recent stadies suggest that eignrett.c smoking is naoat strong:y associated with a higher stilllsirth rate among women who I+omess less favorable socioeconomic surroundings or an unfavorable previous obstetrical history. In the United Statrs, black women have higher stilihirtlt rates tlun white women. The linding that cigarette smoking is aasociated with an even greitt.er diflerence between the still6irlh rates of the two groupec merils npecial attention. Theee findings may provide at leasl a partial explanation for Iho lack of a significant dilferenre in stillbireh rutes between smokers and nonsmokers, which sonw iuvest it;nenrv havefound. 2. The results of experiments in animals dentonvtrate thnt caxwwrc to tobacco amoke and some of its ingredients, auch as iticotine, can result in a significant increase in slill6irih rate. 439

I BirtA U'eigAl Suma+ory Cigarette Smoking and Fetal and Infant Mortality A causal a-viociation between cigarette smoking and fetal growth rctardation is sul)poeted by the following evidence: 1. Tbe retulte of all 42 atud'ee in which the relationship between amoking and birth weight was azamined have demonstral.ed a atrong as.ouation between eipretta smoking and delivery of ama11-for-datea Infanta On We average, the rnoker has nearly twtee the risk of d.lleet(ag a low-blrtb-waight Infant as that of a non.moker. 2 7bis anodation has been eooAtmed by both retrospective and proapeetive study defnpa. 6. A stroea do.e-rapooa relatioe.hlp haa been ewbliahed between eigarett..eoking and the incidaoee of bw-birLh-weight infant.a. Available evidence wiggarta that the ateet of twewkin6 upon fetal growth reaecta the number of dsarettr .moked daily during a PreguLfty, &M not the eamulative elact of eij.retle smoking which occurred before lbe pregnancy begaaa- 4. When a vatiety of known or awpeeted factors which also exert aa intluepea upon birth w.ight have been ooutrolled for, cigarette smoking has aooai.teedy b.en sbewa to be iadapetrdently related to kaw bi rtk w.i~ i.

In many of these studies, the authors combined two or more categories of fetal and infant mortality. DiQer- ent mortality outcomes, such as spontaneous abortion, stillbirth, and neonatal death, are influenced by diRercnt scts of factors. Among other factors, tlie frequency of abortion is in/luenced by congenital infections, hormonal deficiencies, and cervical incompetency. In addi- tion to other factors, the froquency of slillbirth is influenced by pn- mature separatimt of tlie placenta, uterine inertia, and dystocia Along with other factors, the frequency of neonatal death is influe,icrd by grstational maturity, birth injuries, and delivery room and nureery care. Separate analysis of the relationship of cigarntte emaking to each dilferent mortality outcome, with control of the uniqne eet of facton which inAuencea it, may facilitate understanding of the relationship. Sponlmtcou. ADortiow Previous epidemioingical and experimental studies of the relation- ship between apontaneoua aboriion and cigarette smoking reviewed in the 1971 and 1072 reports on tlro health cnnsequences of smoking (101, lot) form the baeisof the follow•ingstatements: The results of several studies, both retrospective and prospective, have demonstrated a statistically aignifieant asnociation between ma- ternal eigareHe nnokinu and spmdaurnu.r alwution (4.T, 65, 70, lkl, 118). Data from some of these etudies have documented a sirong dose- response relationship between tlia numher of cigarettes smokedl and the incidence of spontaneous abnrtiona (70, 90, 118). In general, vari- ables other than eil;aretta smoking (e.g., maternal age, parity, health, desire for the pregnancy, and use of inedication), which may inlluence lhe inridcnce of spontaneous abortions, have not been controlled. The eduults of the one study, in w•hieh adjustment for the woman't desire for the pregnancy was perfnnned, indicated lhat after uuch adjuat- ment rigarctte amoking durinQ /he pregnancy retained an aesociation with sponlaneoua abortion of borderline significance (4.!). The time period dnring which cigarette smoking might exert an influcnro on the incidence of spontaneous abortions has not been deterrninal. Alxar- '•77

Bridefttolof{o.[ Strdiu Underwood, et al. (IV), in a siwly of 8,000 women from .arioia social and eronomio strata, observed adkOnite but statistically Insig- nificant tre»d toward abnre frequent inukquac7 of breast milk pro- duction among thosn smoking mothers who att.empted to norse oompared to nonamoilcrrs. 11lills (6t), in a stwly of 520 women, found that among women who Indiuted either afkein+ to nurse or no dkaire to nurse yet continued to nursu beyerud 10 days, and who had delivered their first live-born infant, the arerage period of nursing for vwU+ers who smoked was signifleai~tly shorter than for nneamokers. Noreo.er, among the 4.1 molhers who hail given up smoking during at least the Rnal 3 months of their prrgnancirs, the average length of nursing was identieal to that of the nnnsnwikers. There was no significant diflervnce between smokers and nonamoken with regard to complete inability to nurse f1eir offspring. This study is dilGcult to interpret because the author did not determine We reason(s) for the discontinustion of nursing among the women. • Eepernwenle! $tvdiu Srvdess ier Axtreu Nioot3ns Influence on the Ldation Prooess Illake and Sawyer (11) studied the innoence of subentaneously injected nirrtine (4 mg. tcdal over a 6-minute perial) upon lactation in the rat. They found that nicoline Inhibited lhe snckling-induced 131 rise In prolactin. No eRect of injectai niootine was dcmonatrat. o:ytocin secretion since milk release was not blocked. Wilson (110) examined the eRects of nicotine supplied through drinking water (0.6, 1.0, and 4.0 mg. daily) on the weight gain of nursing rats. Apparently, the nicotine had been a.ailable throughout gestation as well, because lbs authorooinmenled on a reduction in litter sire among the experimental xroups, mors or less prnportionate to the does of nicotine; hence, a prenatal etTed could noE have been dis• tinguished from a postnatal one. Average birth weight was similar for e: perimrnt al and control groupe. No 4i fTerence in weigh t gain was seen for any of tho groupe. '1'he lack of Impact on birth weight suggesb that dose was lower thaa that used in other studies. ~ Presence of NiooUne In tlw Milk Hatcher and Cr.+ahy (Z), tuilng a freig bio.asay, reported traces of nicotine In oow's milk 24 hours after We intrunuscular injection of 5.0 mg./kg. and 6 hours after the in jection of 0.6 mg /kg. Evidence foF an Effect Upon the Nursing Offspring Na/eher and Croeb7 (dtt). found that 0.6 tng./kg. nicotine injected into nursing cats had no apparent harmful edect upon Use kittena. Apparently 4.0 mg./kR. suppressed lactation. Kittens fed Use milk from the cow which Iud been Injected with 5.0 mg./kg. nicotine were also apparently unaRect.ed. Nitroeaminea Nohr (6.!) found that diefhylnitraeamine and dihutylnitroeamine, wh'n administered to laetating hamstus, were aeeociated with the development of typical traeheal papillary tumors in ltse young, aug- gesting passage of thea. oompounda in'the milk. AllhouRh diethyl- nitroeamine and dibutylnitresamine have not been identified in ciga- rette smoke, many N-nitrosaminee aro potent carcinogens, and some of them are present In eigatette.moke (J7,79).

Perlnun, at a1. (71) found that of 55 women smokere with an adequate milk supply ai the beginning of his stwly, 11 (20 percent) of the women had an inade- quate supply at the time of discharge from the hospital. No relaion- ship was rr.ported between the number of cigarettes snaked and the likelihood of developing an inadequate milk supply.'i'he authoro' im- preeoion was that there was no grr.tar proportion with an inadequate milk supply anwmg smokera ilmn among nonsmokers, but no eor- roboraiing data wers supplied. Preeence of Nicotine (n the Milk Ilatcher and Crosby (JS) found, udna a frog bio..say, that the milk of a woman collected after she had smoked seven eigarettew in 2 hours contained approximately 0.6 .ng./liter nicotine. Emanuel (ll), using a leech bioassay, studied excretion of nicotine in the milk of wet nuraes who were encouraged to enwka for the e:perimenl After the subjects had eee~oked si: to 15 eigarettee over a 1- to 2-bour period, the author found niootins in their milk 4 to 5 hours after..aking, with a maximum conoentratioa of 0.03 asg./liter. $iedom (10) demonstrated nicotine in the milk of amolber who emoked >a0 ciganelta a day. Thompson (99') found appro:imatdy 0.1 m;./171a of nicotine Li the milk of a mother who esnoked alba cigarettes a day (phn three pipe- fub). Perlnun, at ai. (71), o.ina a Daphnia bioassay, dee+onetrated nicotine In the milk of all wosnm who emoked in tbeir study. Moreo.er, they found a direct doss-eelatiotrhip between oonoentralioa of nieotins and the number of eigarettee sewked. No coa+ment la made by the autlwra on the pos.ible inaccuracy introduced by examining only the residual milk following nursing, but it is well known that the composi- Lion of the fore milk and hind milk is diRercnt and perhaps the concentration of niootine al.o diferi E.idenoe for a Clia'scal EQeet Upon the Offspring Emanoel (t!) noted that ainong the infantn in his study, loose etoble were obser.ed only in the one whoae wet nurse had smoked 20 ciga- rettea in the previous 4 hours. IIisdonn (10) obeer.ed a cass of "nice- line poisoning" in a 6-week-old infant whose mother smokexl 20 eigs- rettes a day. The symptoms included: restlessness, vomiting, diarrhea, and taehycardia. Nicotine wu demonstrated in the milk, and the symptoms abated when smoking was stopped. dreiner (JD) also de- seribetl a case of possible nicotine poisoning in a a-week-old nurding i 1 ;a whoae mother srnoked 35 to 40 cigaret.tee a day.'I'he qmptome inetu. .omiting and looes atools. Following the curtailment of smoking, ths symptaru gradually abated over a L-day period. Perlman, et al. (71) noted no eQect of smoking on the weight gain of tlw infanta of the snwkerr (n their study. Furthermore, no untoward symptome were observed. They therefore doubted an effect of smoking on lactation. They noted that the does received by the infants was beneath the to:ia level as computed Irom adult experience, and ehie aecorded with their clinical observations. The faed that they admitted to the study only women with an app.nently adequate milk supply may have affected their resulte. The authors.y&ge.ted that perhapa the lack of eRect of smoking upon laetation might represent the development of tolerance to nioot3ne, ae both the nrotlwr and the offspring had been exposed throughout the pre{naney. VTTAMIN C Venulet (106, l08, !07), In a series of studies, demonstrated that the level of vitamin C w•as reduced in the milk of smoking mothers as eompared with nonsmokers.

I habita. This would be important to know given the strong dose- rcaponse relationship which has been eetablish«i between cigarette smoking and low birth weight, and would tend to make the reproduc- tive outonmea for e=-amokers similar to those of nonanwken, and different from those of women who smoked in all pregnancies. For az-smokers, the age at which amoking began was not elicited. Hence, some of the infants of as-amok4rs may have been born before their mothers acquired tbe raoking habit. This would also tend to make the ropraluctivs a=parieuoes of a:-snwJcers more like Ihose of nonsinoken and ditaaat ftas thosa of wotrwt wLo snwkui in all pregnanciet No direct sdjusGoetit for aja, parity, and other variables was reported, altlwugb Yetvsisaimy stated tltat t6 study population was limited to the birtha that ooeurrad to woavan at age 25 years or lesa. lfe noted tbat, "In order to adjust for parity, tlrs same oomparisons were performed for Atstborn infants only. Tbe numbers were reduced oon.idarably, but tbe same tendeneiea as found above were noted " However, no data were preuatted. Primiparous births and births in teenagers are strongly aa.oeiated with tLe delivery of low-birth-weight infanta. If the prcgnabeiics which ooettrrad among future smokers included a predominanoi of very young womea and primiparoua births, t6 reproductive e:pariedcea of futttre sawkan would tend to be similar to those of wame' who smoked during all pregnancies, and di9ereat from those of nooastok.ra In the absence of anorm preeiae iwfortnatioo oa aetual tmokint be6aviotr during pregnancy and vwre rigorous adjustmcat for maternal age, tbis study does not provide a critiul teat of the bypot`esis that it is the smokint during pregnancy which is reaponsibla for tba high proportioa of small-for-dates in- fants boty to wo+oaa wbo a+mkst Brtpiswwtel $ludla 8rvorrs tx Axist.u Tobacco Smoke Several investigators have demonstrated that exposure of prefinant rats or rabbits to tobacco nnoke leada to a reduction of birth w•aght in the oQsprina, as eompared to controls (fJ, d7,117). Younacai, et a1. (117) reported data from studies in rsta which indicated Ilut some agent present in cigaretta smoke other than nicotine was reslwnsildo for the reduction in birth weight observed. The authors sugl;ested Ihat earbr-, monoxide might also not be responaible for the retardution of I I i I t fetal growth; however, the evidence presented was inadeqaate to aulkport a firm cocrlusion. llaworth and Ford (JJ) recently extended the e:per`.nenta of Younoessai. A group of pregnant rats was exposed to cigare,te tobacco snwke for 6 to 8 minutes, five times a day, from days '. :0 20 of ges- tation. These rata were compared with another group whose food intake was restricted to the amount actually consumed by lhe tobacco- esposed rats, and both were compared to a well-fed control group. The animals in both experiments were killed on the 21st day of gestation, and weights of the entire body, the liver, and the kidney of each fetus w•ert recorded. The total average fetal weight of the group exposed to tobacco smoke was significantly low•er than that of both the food-reatrieted and control groups. The fetal weights of the latter two groups were quite similar. Protein and DNA analyses were performed separately on elie entire forohraims and hindbraiiu of the fetuses and on the entire ureass. ISoth DNA and protein ivere sig- nifieuitly and proportionately reduced in the carcass and hindbraina of the animals exposed to tobacco smoke. This implies that ccll number was reduced and cell size was normal, and suggests that thc eaposure to tobacco smoke either inhibited cellular proliferation ur accelerated cellular destrudion. Nicotine Several workers have demonstrated that chronic injections of large doeus of nicotine into pregnant rats resulted in a reatuction'of birth weight of the offspring (7, B, 9, 25, 40). Other investigators havo ale- termined that tritium-IaLellal nicotine injected into prrgnant rabbits and C"-labelled niootine injected into pregnant mice ciaseod the plaoenta to the developing embryo and fetus (89, 98). Kirschbaum, et al. (41) found no significant aaite effects of small doses of nicotine, injkted intravenously into near-term sheep, on bl"l gas composition, p1I, blood prevure, or heart rate in either the ewes or their fetuses. The authors concluded that the influence of maternal smoking upon the fetus must t*sult frorn chronic effects or +.hrough the eflocts of other variables which thty did notatudy. Recently, Suzuki, et aI. (94) evaluated the e.tiort-term effects of in- jected uicotine on the cardiovascular performance, acid-base atatus, antl oxygenation of pregnant fcmale Rhesusmonkeys and their infants during eho second hnlf of gestation uaing the enothere ai their own controls. Nicotine was administered either as a single intravenotis dose of 11.5 to 1.0 mg. or as a coutinuous infusion of 100 pl;./'kg. over 41,3-e211 0-73--a Z££L OtLtS ~ 429

i i I J behavior between the beginning of pregnancy and tne tounn montn on late fetal and neonatal mortality. A statistically significant and doae•relat.ed inereabe in mortality occurred among the infants of mothers who continued to smoke after the fourth monlh of pregnancy, as compared with the infants c f nonsmokers and thoee of women who amoked prior to the pregnancy but gave up smoking by the fourth tnonth of gestation. Niawander and Gordon (Q!) reported data from the prospective Collaborative Perinatal StWy of ths National ]nstitute of Neurologi- cal Disease and Stroka. The 39,215 prognaeeia registered at 12 uni- veraity hnapitala in the United Stalea wars almost equally divided between black and white•wosoan. They found a nonsignificant increase in perinatal tnortality aawng the infantA of white.nokers aa dompared to thoaa of white aonnookera; tha overall toortality ratio was 1.13 (P>0.1). The infanta of blselt wakan, however, had a significantly higher nartality r+ak thaa did thor of black aorn.wkers; the mor- tality ratio was 1.18 (P<O.tls). Moreover, a de4nite do.e-rrsponae re- lationahip betweeat eigarettee amoited by pregtuat twotbers and nwrtality risk was shown for blaeA Infada. Black women ware noted to sawke aignilinatly fewer cigarotlaay oa tLe averasa, than .•hita wo1nN6 Rush and Kar (8!) found, in a proyaeetlve study of 3,276 preg- naneies followed at Ilaaton City lfospital, a nonaigniticant increase in late fetal plua neonatal awetality rata among the infanta of white . women who airwhed as eaetpared to tbaae of white nonamokera. Itow- ever, the inlanta of Waek women who smoked had a atatist.icalty aig- niAeant increase In tawrtality rat. compared to the infants of black nuaaookers (PCO.OI). The overall mortality ratio for blaek women who raoked was 1.8t. Tbs di[erenos hs.frequeney of stillbirth among the iatanta of anwkart and nonamokera waa the primary factor which co.tributed to the aig'iAcaace of the diReranos in mortality rates. Analysis ot Previously Reported Studies Previously repotted.Wdieaean bs divided into two groups: A group in which the lata fetal plua neonatal mortality rates for infanta txtrn to eiRaretde smokers were signifieantly higher than those for the infants born to nonsmokers, and a group in which no significant diRerenoes were deteet.d in the mortality rates for the intants horn to smnkers and nonsmokers. Tbe rrwlts of several d.udier (14, 17, tS, r<t, 4.1.56, 84, D!) yielded teortal ity ratios ranging f rnm 1.38 to 1.78. The resulta of other studies (L0, 85,78, A6, 140. 115) yielded mortality ratios ranging from 1.01 to 1.1101. Roth Kroups containerl retrnsltrrtivr and prospective studies of oomparnhle airs. The two aroula di,l diffei 4t. 8V£L OTLTS signilia.nlly, however, with regard to control of variabies othor tLsn ci6wrctte unoking which influence perinatal mortality. Factors Which Influence Perinatal lfortality OUier Than Smoking lluller and Alberman (ly), on data from the British Perinatal Mortality Study, emliloyed a logit transforniation analysis of variance, and demonatrated that maternal height, age, parity, soeial class, and severo preeelampsia all lud a aignificant independent effect on late fetal and ueonatal naHality. ltu~ucau•lt~uetto (81) provided evi• d'enoe that a previous atillbirtlt or low•birth-weight infant aignifinntly increased Use risk of a future stillbirth. Aloyer and C'.omstock (Sl) provided examples of how the differcntial diatributicxt of smoking and other factors which are related to perinatal mortality, in a population of wiwnen, ean bias data (e.g., black rour.n have higher perinatal mortality rates than do white konsen, lwt black women amoke less than white women do. lfenos, nonsmokers will tend to incluJe more black women, and smokers more white w•onteu. This will tend to reduce any diQerat>ors between the groups in mortality rytes) Meyer and Comstock eoncluded, "(`,omparisons of mortality rates of smokers' and nonsmokers' babies should bo made within subgro,qps according to ltarity, socioeconomic status, and other appropriate risk factors, and uot separated by birth weigltt." In three of the studies in which a significantly higher mortality risk was demonstrated for the infants of smokers, adjustment for other variables was performed. Tbe results indicated that, after such ad- justrnent, a significant independent association between cigarette smoking and infant mortality persisted (13 and 15, 17, 81). Of the studies which revealed no significant increase in mortality risks for smokers' infants, one (115) controlled for race alone. llence, at least part of the discrepancy in results between the two groulr of studies may Ite explained by a lack of control of variablas other than smoking. Another possible, at least partial, explanation of tlw discrepancy in trMult, obtained by the two scts of dudies is that cigarette amoke may be moro harmful to the fotuafls of certain women than others. Several developing lines of evidence ui=st that this may be the case: 1. Cigarette smoking and socioeconomic hackground. Ilutler, et al. (16) noted that when data from the British Pcrinatal Mortality Study are grouped hy social elam of the mother's hushand, the late fetal plus neonatal mortality ratio for infants of smokers aod nmw;nsnkera in the npper social clas+cs I and It is 1.10; the mortality ratio for the entire sample was 1.28.

The injection of nicotine in the largcr, single dose into the mother produced a rise in maternal blood pressure and a fall in maternal heart rate, and an immediate fall in both fetal blood pressure and fetal he.rt rate followed by persistent hytwtension and tachycardia in the fetua. Subsequent to the injection of 1.0 mg./kQ. nf nicotine into pregnant monkeys, in a single dose, significant changes in the arterial blood of the older fetttsrs included a fall in pit, a rise in baae deficit, and a fall In otygen tenaion.

'Itwa reaponsea were similar to those previously uen in the mottws following a direet in f.etion of niootina The chang.ea ware morw prominent in older rather thaa in Tounpr htuses. The authors sum- marit.ed their findings by ntating tlut: (a) fetuaes In difterent grs- tatiooal et.ges an differentially reaponai.a to a given doae of nirn- tine, probably beeause of tJbla difereet stages of development of tlle autonomie nervow system; (b) diminisl+ed intervillous space per- fusion resulting from vaweonetrtetion in the uterine circulation ap- pears to be mainly responsible for the fetal aaphyxia following the injection into the mother, becauss fetal hypotenaion and bradycardia were not preceded by tha transient hypertension seen following the direct utministration of nieotine to Ula fetus; (e) the diRemluvs be- tween Ihe resulta obtained by Kirsehbaum and by Su:uki, et al. may reAeet either tha oonaiderabls dosage diffatvtoes or species diQerences; and (d) tha,dosms which the auUwn employed w+r+ much larger than thoaa which a human anothar would eb.orb from usual cigarette slnok- ing, but tbai diQerenoes in toleranea to nicotine between the Ithestls nankey and humans would imply that Uie dosages were, in fact, rnm- parabk and lhat, °Iienoet it can be envisaged that tha concentratinn of nicotine which could be reached in tbe orRanisen of a anwking reother would reduoe oxygen availability to the fetua.' 6rbon Monoxide iongo (45) has reviewed the work of several investigators a•hirh has demonstrated the tranaplacental pasaga of carbon monoxide hvw nather to fetus in animala.

A raview of previously unreported studiei (67, 7G), as well as tft'amination of praviou.ly cited studies, fotwla tLe basir of the following atateelenb s T1.e reautts of atverel praspective and rr.trny.edive ntrwlies indieale a atatiatitally aigniReant hiRher late fetal and/or nennatal mortality for the infanta of tanokent compared to tho.e of nanaturkeri (1;, 17, t6, 41).'1'fis results of other proqreetive and rttroqwective atudiei irten- titled no significant dilfarenee in the Ir-,rtality ratea between the in- fants of t.no><ers and nonseloken (ti», Q6, 74, 86, ItaO, 115). 1f mortality raW were oontpared for thoee infaMs of anwkcra.nd nonaenoltery weighing len than $b00 jralru, lLe infants of nonsmokers apparently had aeoarirlerahly higher risk tlun did Iluroe of smokers.

However, available evidence shows that cil;nnette smokers' infants tend to be srnall-for-gestational age rather than gestatinnally pre- mture. 1(encr, within a given birth weight group, llie infants of amokers are, on LIin average, gestationally more matnre than thoee of nonunokert. Data collected by the National Center for llealth Sta- liatir3 (103) demonstrate that within a given birth weight group, the nwre gestationally mature an infant, the lower is its mortality risk (fig. 8). Thus, the difference in perinatal mortality risks experienced hy tlie infants of cigarntle unokera and nonsmokers, within comparable birth weight classes, reflecta the faeb that the two aets of infants are not of the same averag• gestational age, and that gestational age is a major factor influenoing late fetal and neonatal mortality. An accu- rate estimate of eom[rart+tive mortality risks for the infant& of cig- arette smokers and twnamokers requires adjudment for grstational aQa M or infants of comparable gestational agn, lower birth weight is as- sociated with higher mortality (fig. 6). Since infants ~~ cigatetta smokers have, on the average, tower birth weights than the infanLs of nonunokers, within grouts of comparable gntationa: aFe, cigarelte smokers' infants slauld experience higher mortality rates than non- smokers' infants of similar geslal.ional agea. In a recent review, Meyer and Cornstoc]t (61) provided a more e:tenaire discussion of theae points. pA pAtnp tnp~e Taa-s 3.-ComParieon of lAe per+watol erortW y Jo~J rrn 1eu fAaw 1,600 prnms, of .woakc smla .".....w..... tV%..1d .....wr ,H.

A disturbance of vitamin C metaboliam ( J06, I0C,107). Of the potential awh"iama, available evidence suggests that neither'decre.aed matevttal appetite and decreased maternal weight gain nor a direct aGect upon the placenta are responsible for a sig- niticant reduction in birth weight. E:iatittg evideiwa does not permit 6rm eooelusiooa eoooerniaj the rwlativa sipifxasea of the remaining merhacisma Tiwing of tAa lraifwwa of Ciyanetb Buabiwp on Birt4 1VeiyAe Several ioveaf.igaton have publiebed retulta which bear on the time period during which aapowr. to eigarette amoke most aAects fetal growUt. Low-s (4C) and Zabriskie (Ild) have ofered evidence which auRgesta that cigwrette smoking Influences fetal growtL most, during We second half of pregnancy. Ilutler, at at. (16) found that the birUi weights of infanta of women who did not smoke after the fourth month of pregnancy wer+enenUally the aatae as thoea of the infanta of aouumr>Jcera. This impliea that the inAuawoa is most probably exerted after t}* fourth month of pregnancy. Ifarriott, at aI. (36), however, found that women is lower socioeconomic classes who gave up smoking early in pregnaney tended to have interenediate weight b-bies as oom- pared with nonsmokers and parsistent wnokera, but his numbers of woman were small and the results were not statistically alviitioant. Underwood, at aL (/QO) found that ciRarwtle smoking in any sinRle trimesRar was aaaociabd with a lower birth weight of the infant, although the difference between the birth w•eiglda of infants of women who smoked only during a single trinuester and infants of non- smokers was not staJistically significant because of iunall uuuihcrn Several InvestiRators have detarte.l it nearly eonntrnt differruee 11e- tween the birth weiRhts of the infents of amnkers and nnnsulokers, delivernd during the last month of preRnanry, fnlinw-inc ftcatelinns of eomparable length (RR. 1, (!I)). Although this oheervelion is 4* S£EL OtLtS ..._..~ compatible with Lite suggealion that Lite influence of cigarette emoking upon the felus occurs prior to Lite last month of pregnauicy, it is based upon data derived from cross-sectional ratlinr than longitudin-I studies. The results of many human epideminlogicnl studiea wi66est that maternal smoking prior to pregnancy does not influance fetal weight gain (I5, t5, 46, 49,1IJ). Sils of Action at lhe Tiuive and Cellular Level The use of labelled nicotine (98) and the preparations of autoradio- grams have permitted the localization of nicotine within the tissues of the fetua and mother. Tjalve, et al. (98) found high levels of nico- tine in the reapiratory tract, adrenal, kidney, and int.cstine of 16- to 18- day mice fetuses. The use of other labelled constituents during various parts of gestation might further the understanding of how certain ingredients in cigarette smoke produce an impact upon birUk weight. Iiaworth and Ford (JJ) have reported data which suggest thnt Lite reduction of birth weight of rat fetuses caused by the -ction of the Iegredient(s) of totxceouaoke results from a reduction in cell number, but not in call aixe_ SigstilCoonu of 1Aa AuocicNon Among all women in the United Statea, cigarette smokers are nearly twice as likely to deliver low-hirW-weight infants as -re non- smokers. Assuming that 20 percent of pregnant women in llie United States smoked cigarettes through Lite entira pregnaucy (eztrzlw,lated from data on changes in smoking behavior during pregnancy collecled for the British Perin-tal•ltortality Study), taking into account the apparently different risks of delivering a am-Il-for-dstcs infsut for Caucasian and non-Caucasian women who smoke during pregnancy, and considering the number of infants with a birth weight less than 4,500 grams born to Caueaaian and non-Caucasian women, an excess of nearly 43,0p0 occurred in the 286,000 low-birih-wcight infants among the J,BQO,IXkI infants born in the 1lnited States in 19611, bceauso of the incraaasd risk among women who smoke of having small-for- datea infants. 3ince neonatal mortality I. higher for low-birth-welgth infants, with gestational age held constant, the e:oas of small-fnr-detes in fnntn among smoking mothers would imply a significant e:cess moilslity risk as well.

VEEL OTLTS Schlede and Merker (8Q) have atudied the eflcct of benzo(a) pyrene administration on aryl hydrocarbon hydrozylaae activity in the mater- nal liver, placenta, and fetus of the rat during lhe latter half of gestation. The pregnant animala w-ere treated with large oral doses of benzo(a)pyrene 24 hours prior to sacriGce. Control rata had no detectable levela of aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylaee in their plaeentaa Treatment with benzo(a)pyrone resulted in barely det.ect.We placental levels on gestation day 13, but steadily rising values until day 15, and theo constant levels tLerwfter. No activity w•as delected in the fetusn of untreated oontrols. In the treated anisnala, the fetal enzyme activity rose steadily from the 13tb to tbe 18th day of gestation. The autlwre concluded that the stimulatory eQeet of betuto(a)pyrene treatment on aryl hydrocarbotl bydrozylass activity in the fetus demonstrates that benso ( a) pyrme readily erosses tAa rat plaoent a. ST4DfL tx IIOxAN Carbon Hoooside Smokers and their newborn infanta have signifiunlly elevated levels of carbon monoxide ss compared with nixunwkers and their infants (J1, 34, 88, 11Q). Recently, ltsribeud, at al. (5) studinl fi0 nnnsmokers and 27 cigarette sowkers and their newborns. All smokers inhakd. The authors found that t.he mean level of M content in the blood of non- tunokers was 0.211 volumes peroent eoml ired with 0.012 volumet per- oent in the blood of smokers. The values for blood samples from the umhilical cords of their newborns were 0.R82 and 0.04D volumes per- oant, resf,er3ively. Moreover, a definite dae relationtdrip was found between CO kvels and number of cigarettes emoked. 1'onneesai, et al. (116) found, in addition to elevated csrbosyhemo- jiobi.n levels among the iafants of ttmoldng nathers, signi6cant ebvation of mean capillary bemotocrib and signifkant reductinn of standard bicarbonata levels, as eompered to tlle infants of nonsmoking mothers. Since no evidenos for nicotine et{ects upon blond glucose, serum FFA levels, or urinary estecholamine., or for hypoxia was prtsa+t, they aoncludetd that the higher hernatocrit levels in tlre infants of nnoking tnothen may have represented a con,penaator,y rosprmse to the decreased oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood Que to the presence of carboxyl,enwRlobin. t.ongo (46) pointed nut that a level of 0 perexnt rarlaxl•hemnrlnl,in in the fetus is lhe equivalent of a 41 perrent derrennr in fetal idnnJ flow or fetal hemnglnllin conernfratinn. In reviewing (he rtuJiv.r ~if CO levels in human mothers snd thcir uer•bnrue, he u,edn thr fnilun•- i ing comments: "These samples were oLlained at the time of vaginal dclivery or ('esnrean section uid nuy not acenrately reflect the normal valnea of (Mllls), for scveral reasons. The nnmbor of eisnrettcs arnukid by Ihe mothera during labor may be less than their normal eonenmption and was not sl+ccified in these studies. The blood sam- rles were collerfcd at varying time pcriods following the ces+ation of amoking. Iu udditinn, rnsny nf tho anmhles were probably taken early in the da,y IMfnrr. Cnlxb levels had bnilt up tn lhe levels reached hor prolonged Ireriale of srnnkiu{. Thus artual luvels of (Cnllb)„ and (CU116), may be higlrer than tbo rclN+rtod values." Polycyclic Ifydrocarlans , The resutts of seversl stn<lies concur lbst cigarette smoking is stron{;ly associated with the induction of aryl hydrocarbon hydrox- ylase in the human placenta (18, S8, C1, 99, lt79). This finding implies that benzo(a)pyrene or other pnlyeyelie hyJrorirt,oru reanh the plaranta. To rlate, evidcnco to s,y+port the passage of Iwlycyelic hydro- carbons through the placenta to the human fetus has not been publi.%hed. Vitamin B„ and Cyanide Detoxification MeCarry and Andrews (48) determined serum vitamin B„ levels in 82G wanen at their 6rst prenatal clinic visit They found that the serum levels fnr smokers were significantly lower lhnn for nunemokers. After adjnstmeut fnr geststinnal aqe, parity, social class, hemoglobin level, hylrertcnsinn, and maternal weight, anokers still had signifi- cantly lower levels of I4,,. 7'hey also found a direct, statisticully sig- nificant dnee-n•slw,nsn rrlafionalrip between cigarettes arwke.l and serurn vitamin B„ level. They again confirmed the relatiunsl,ip be- twecn smoking aud low birth weight The authon auggested U,at the lowural vitanmiu I1„ levels reflect a disorder of cyanide detosifiutiun. Cyanide is a demonstrable ingredient in cigaretle amoke (39, 60, 61, 64,68,74,91). Vitamin C Venulct (lOS, 06, 107) has demonstreted that the vitamin C level is significantly lower in the serum of women who smoke cigarettes during pregnancy, compared to values for tl+e;r nonsmoking «+unter- wrta.

.ome were observed to inhale the smoka. Hatcher and Crosby (Jt) noted that after a mother srrnoked seven citarettes within 2 hours, it was diicult to obtain a specimen of breast milk. Perlman, et a1. (71) found that of 55 women snwkers with an adequate milk supply at the beginning of hia study, 11 (20 percent) of the women had an inade- quat.e supply at the tilae of discharge from the hospital. No relation- ship was reported between the number of cigareties amoked and the likelihood of developing an fn.dequate milk supply. The authors' im- prmsion was that there wu.o greater pwpottion with an inadequate milk uipply among auaken than aaion~ nonsnwken, but no cor- roboratinr data were supplied. Pris.enes of Nicotine in tl,e Milk Hate]ter and Crosby (JI) tound, ustsr a frog bioasaay, that the milk of a wonua coll.ebd aftar she k+.d .mokad seven eigaratlea in 2 bours contained appruimaWy 0.!A mit,/litar niootine. Emaauel (lt), usint a leeck bio..aay, iudiad eseratioa of niootins in the milk of wet nurses who were encouraged to aewka for the experiment. Aftar the sub jects had amokd si: to 1` elaarettr om a 1- to 2-hour pariod, the aulhor found nicotlna Ir their milk 4 to 6 bours aft.r smoking, with a atuimusa oasamtratlat of O.OS tet,/1it.r. Disdos (10) damonatrated nicotin. in tha milk of a naetbar wAs tttaaked 9t) eipnttri a day. Thompaoa (97) touted appro:imut4ly 0.1 mg./lit.r of niootina in the milk of a motbar who tlleokrd dpa eiprattr a day (plus tbree pipe- fuls). Perlan:a, et a/. (71), osiat a D.pbaia bioassay, demonatrated nieotiat in tba milk of all wwnen who rnokad ln their study. Moreover, they found a ditrd dosa-tdatioeuhip between eoneantrstion of nicotine atsd tbe number of titarettes amoked. No comment is made by the authors on the possible inaccur.ey introduced by examining only the residual milk following nursing, but it is wdl known that the composi- tion of the fore milk and bind milk IL different and perlups the ooooantrrtion of niootine also diCers. Evideoos for a Clin'tcal Effect Upon the Offspring Eaunusl (tt) noted that among the in/ants in his study, loose stools were observed only in the one whose wet nurs had smoked 20 ciga- rettea in the previous 4 houra. IIisdom (10) observed a case of "nico- tine po'uoning" in a 6-week-old infant whoss mother smoked 20 ciga- rsttes a day. The symptotns included ; rwlesenesse, vomiting, diarrhea, and tachyeardia. Nicotine was demonstrated in lhe milk, and the symptoms abated when smoking was stopped. areiner (30) also de- scribsd a eus of possible nicotine poisoning in a S-week-old nursling whueo mother smoked 35 to 40 ciga rcltts a day. Thn eymrtoms inclwlcd vomiting auld looee stools. Following /he curtaihncnt of ainnking, ths symhtoiru graduslly abatcd over a 3-day period. Perlman, et al. (71) noted uo effect of smoking on the weight gain of the infants of tlte smokers in their atudy. hurthennore, nn unloward aymptoins were observed. They tJierelore doublat an effect of smoking on lactation. Tlicy uoted that thu dnu; receival by the infaida was bcncatlt the toxic level as computed from adult exlwerience, and this accorded with their clinical ofncrvationa. The fact tliut they adwittc•il to the study only wanen witll an apparently dequate milk snpply may have aRected their results. The authors suggested thnt perhaps lhe lack of effect of smoking upon lactation might represent flie development of tolerance to nicotine, as both the wotber alwl the oQspring had been exposed throughout lhe pregnancy.

I I Chapter 1 Smoking-Related Health Problems Unique to Women INTRODUCTION Smoking habits and attitudes among women and teenage girlt have differed in the past from the habita and attitudes among men and toenase boys. Women tended to smoke fewer ciWettea, were ieaw likely to inhale, and were more likely to smoke low "tar" and niur IJne and Nter-tlpped branda. Surveys have Jndiuted, however, that the smoking habits of women un becoming more like men's. Women are takln= up the habit at an tarller age and have become heavier amoken. Thia haa made them more vulnenble not only to lung cancer and other anoklnj-rolated dlaearea, but alLo to specific health problema that ue wilque to their ewt. For eumple, reaearch on the relationahip between cigarette aeokins and the outcome of pn.Vnancy has established that tbere .re definite rLks to both the fetus and the mother associated with ciprette amoklna during preVnancy. Moroover, women who use oral contraceptives aro at t;reater riak of cardiovascular disease If they unoke eiprettes.

Women who amoke eigarsttes during pregnancy have a higher proportion of low-birW-weitht inf-nts than do nonsmokers. This e:cess of low•birth-weit6t infants among cigarette smoken pre- dominantly consisla of infants who an Wu))•for•gestitional age rather than gcatatioaally ptamature. 2.

Cords from new- born children delivered by I S nonsmokin8 and 13 smoking mothers were studied In the transmission and the scanning electron micro- scope. The average weight of children born to smokers was 3,370 8 and that of children born to nonsmokerti was 3,695 8, a difference of 32S g. A difference of 123 g waa found In the we(thts of the placentas. Pronounced changes In the inUma were found In the umbilical samples from smokers.

Since similu changes can be induced In arteries of anlmals by exposure to CO or perfuaion with nicotine, the authors condude that dsa.r elte smoking V harmful to the waxular endotheUum and may pro- vide some rationale for the mechanism behlnd low birth weltthts and Increased perinaW mortallty. SMOKING AND ITS EFFECTS ON CARDIOVASC'UUR DISEASE AMONG WOtI/EN.TAKING ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES Smokirt8 Is a major cause of cardiovascular dlsease amont women, and It has been found lhal the use of oral tontraoepthrea potenU- '&tee Its effect. Therefore, women who smoke and lue oral oontra- ceptlvea are at a much higher risk for cardiovascular disease and thould be encouraged to stop smoking. In a revkw by Ory (30) of the original ackntifie data that exists on the uaodation between oral contraceptives and myocardlal infarction, cigarette smoking wu found to be the most Important factor in (ncreasint the proba- bility of women less than 50 years of age having myoeardlal lnfaro• tion. Although this Increased risk Is Independent of ord oontra- oeptive tue, oral contraceptive we appean to be an added risk factor. The use of these drugs In the absence of other predisposint factors appears to have only a small effect on Inaeasine the risk .of dying from myocardlai lnfuction. ' lain (18) studied the risk of mortality associated with the use of oral contnceptives. For wdmen 40-44 who neither uoe oral oontra- .oepllves nor smoke ci8arettea, the overall mortality rate from myo- rirdial lnfarction is 7.4 ner 100,000 (Table 4).

Colo, Hawkins, and Roberts (7) studies the smoking habits of a group of pregnant women and related these to the level of lblfb in the circuLting blood. A group of 222 patienls allendine antenatd dinla at a London hoapltal _were questioned about their smoking habita. Ninety-throe (42 percent) were smokers, And 129 (58 pu- een() were uotumokert. Simultaneous maternal and cord blood samples were taken at normal delivery and at Caeurean section from 28 p.tienta, .nd the COHb and fetal hemoglobin levels of the umpley were measurod. Results showed that women who smoke dutint pre8nancy have a titnlllcantly higher level of COHb in their blood than women who do not smoke (p< 0.01). The mean COHb levels were 1.2 percent (range 0 to 2.4 percent) for the non- smokera and 4.1 percent (range 0.5 to 14 percent) for the smokers. There was a po.itive correlation betwen the number of ciyueller smoked on the day of sampling And the COHb level (cortelatioa ooefticlent 0.82) (Flture 2).

The mean folr+l/matemal COlfb ratio was 1.84 to I (standard deviation t0.85). llemotlobin has a 210 tlmes Qeater affinity for carbon monoxid. (CO) than for oxygen. Il Is obvlous, therefore, that cigarette smoking during pregnancy dlmin- ihes the oxygen cartyint capacity of both fetal and maternal blood. 131s affects maternal oxygenation by Increased pulmonary venous dmisture and diminishes the oxygen available to the fetus at the tlwse level by Its efieet on fetal oxyhemoelobin dissociation. In a 1975 report by Dow, Rooney, and Spence (11), a slanifi- csntly treater rise In COHb eoncentratlon In response to smoking a :ngle cigarette was shown In pregnant women (3.9 percent Increase) a opposed to nonpregnant women (2.1 percent Increase). Thla was wore pronounced when anemia was present (5.0 percent Increase) aid appeared to be inversely related to the hemoglobin eoncentn- don. 71vee troups of women, all amoken, were selected for this sUdy. The first group consisted of 10lwrmal, pregnant women late Y the second trimester of pretrraney, with hemoyobin levels of a.er I I a per 100 milWiten (ml). Tbe second group consiated of 10 .omen also late In the second trirnester but who.e hemoglobin kvels were kss than 10 1/100 ml. Apart from anemL at the time of dmission to the dudy, these patknta were normal. The third troup consisted of 10 normal, nonpregnant women with normal hemovo- t,in levels (over 11 g/100 ml). The change in C01(b was estimated rpectrophotorttetrlcally in response to smoking the flrat cigarette ef the morn4t8, the women having rnted for at least 30 minulea. A smlpk of venous blood was withdrawn before and 2 minutes after ralokint the cigarette. The cizaretta wero of a standard size and of a'4lonantld" (i.e., not low "tar" And nicotine) variety.'Phe women ucre Instructed to take a puff every 40 seconds, Inhaling as deeply  possible, to a total of 10 puffs. In the nonpregnant tlroup, the mean rise In COlib concentration (tstandard error of inean) was 2.10.2 percent. A significantly peater increaua was found In the normal pregnant group (mean rise 3.9s0.4 percent; t=3.91; p<0.005). ille effect wu moro pro- wunced In the anemic pregnant women, who had a meaniru rise of SAi0.2 percent (t-9.9; p<0.0005). Longo (21) studied the effects of CO on oxygenation of the fetus Is utero. Results showed that the partid pressure of oxygen in fetal kood decreases in proportion to the COllb concentrations In fetal And maternal blood (Figure 3). This decrease (n oxygen tension may be a factor in the low lirth weight of infants born to women who smoke or .re exposed to severe air pollution. These tesulls suggest that significant in- deases In nlatemal and fetal COllb concentrations can significantly ftduce oxygen delivery to the fetus. I 0 1p

The risk of premature rupture of inernbranes was morc than lhroe times greater for smokers than for nonsmokers unong deliveries that oo- curral before 34 weeks geatation and remained higher than the risk for norumokera through term (Figure IC). A prospective Investigation of 9,169 pregnant women was con- ducted by GouJard, et sd. (IS), and results showed a substantial Increaae !n stillbirths among smokers. A large proportion of this increase was due to abruptio placentae. T'here were 100 stillblrths, clasaified Into five categortea of cawia: vascular, abruptlo plaoen- tae, meehanlcal, mixcellaneout (typhllL. Rh, malformations, etc.), and unknown (Table 3). The abruptio placentae category exdu• dvely represented casos without toxemia, the one toxemic case being dasiified with the vaaeulu causes. The higher proportion of smoken is slgilflcant for only two of the categories: abruptio placentae (p - 0.005) and unknown eauses (p - 0.0005).

Data from two of the sludies presented below dernon- strate an associaUon between smoking during pregnancy and im- paired physical and Intelleclual development in the offspring. Additional reports further substantiate this association (10. 11). Butler and Goldstein (6) analyzed the National Child lkvelop- mcnl Sludy, a longitudinal study of 17,000 children bom in Ilritain from Much 3 to 9, 1958. The test proeedures included a reading 0 test at lhe age of 7 years, and a mathematica tat, a reading test, and a general ability test at the age of II. At both ages the height of the child was also measured. Analyses at both ages were based on smoking habits of the mother after the fourth month ofprognancy Slatistically significant differences In height and reading .bllity between smoking categories (0, 1-9, or 10+ cigarettes dally) were found at both 7 and I I years of age. When account was taken for such factors u mother's height, age, social class as determined by father i occupatlon, number of older and younger chlldnen in the household, usd the sex of the dllld, there was a deficit of height and reading abllity In the off- spring or mothers who smoked, the extent of which Inaeaaed with the amount smoked. These results establish an association of smoking In pregnancy with later Intelkctual development, vthough the gap between chlld- ten of amokera (at all levels of smoking) and nonsmokers doea not *appear to change between the a8ea of 7 and IJ years. Smoking ln pregnancy is associated with an lmpalrment of both mental and physlcal trowth, although eomparod with other .ocial .nd blologl- eal faeton, lhe effeeta ane small. In the study by Wirtgud and Schoen (40), the net effects of various factors on length at birth and height at S yean were deterr mined In 3,707 .Ingje-born, whlte California children. Clilldren of ' smoking mothers were found to be shorter (p< 0.001) at birth and °at S years than childron of nonamoking mothers. (intellectual do- u.dopment was not measured In thL study.) In contrast to theae resulta. Hardy and Llelllla (16) found very ~ few tdgnlfkant differences ln a number of body measurernents and Intelkctual functiona up to the alDe of 7 years between children of smokers and nonsmoken. A possible explanation for this discre- pancy is that their aunpk was too small, usd a welght-matcrred con- trol group could add a bias. Whereas the Britlsh.tudy by ft'tler and Goldstein In.ohed a sample xlze of over 5,000 children, Ifanfy and Melllts based their Ilndinga on only 88 matched pairs of clilldren. Calculations by the authors of the British study show that with the imall sample used by Ifardy and Mellits thero was only about a 20 percent probability of detecting dat(stically significant differences in the heights of children born to smoking and nonsmoking mothen.

Their ftnb Inp .how .n apparent but not a tlatistically rlytificunt Increase In relative risk of nonfatal myocardial infarction for nonsmokers who we oral contraceptives (2.02, with a 95 percent confidence interval of 0.5 to 8.5). In conlnst, rot smokers who use oral eontraceptiver, the relative risk was estimated to be 11.67 compared to that of the nonsmoking, nonconlraceplive user. In addltlon, these authon ra ported that the riak of nonfata) myocardial InfarcUon was related to the amount smoked. It was found that In comparison with non- smokers and ez-unoken, the relaUve risk of myocardla) Infaretlon Increa.ed significantly to 1.3 In women smoking fewer than 13 ()tarettea a day, to 4.4 In women smoking 1 S to 24 clpuettea a day, and to 11.9 )n women anokln8 2S or more d8aretta a day. , Among nonsmokers, oral contraceptive users have 2.0 (95 per ant confidence Interval, 0.5 to 8.5) tlmes the ri.k of having a myo- c.rdW Infarctlon. (Secauae the oonfidence Interval Indudea 1.0, chance variation is a poasible explanation for this finding.) Among .noken, if  woman usea oral contraoeptivea, .he has 5.4 (95 poroent confidence Inter.al, 2.0 to 14.7) Umea the risk of having a myocurdial Infarclion than If she Is a nonuser.

EFFECTS OF CICARETfE SMOKING ON LA(,'tA11ON Studies by R)cher and Ciudleelll (31), Rowan (32), and VorherT (39), further document the effects of nicotine in breaat milk on in- fanta of smoking mothers. Since nicotine has been ahown to cause aau.ea, vomitlng, diarrhea, and tachycardia (38). It la reoonuaended by the authors that lactating mothers refrain from smoking. Bradt and Herrenkohl (5) atudled the relationship between ciaa- rotte smoking and DDT In human milk. A total of 53 human milk ramptea from eastern Pennsylvania were studied. Ten of the donors were eisarette vnoken, and they donated 13 of the milk samples. Results of the study showed that smoking was one of four variables which contributed to the increaso in DDT. Mean total for the non- smoker was .101 units venus .146 units for smokers. Fout factors were identified statlatically as accounting for 54 percent of the variance on total DDT levels In human milk. These factors are: (I) number of children nursed; (2) number of eltuettea smoked daily; (3) use of nonpersistent peslicidea; and (4) diet In calories. The ro- lallonshlp between the number ot dyxtla smoked per day and the total amount of DDT in human milk wUesta either that cigarette smoke may be a source of the human body burden of DDT or that citarclte smoke may cause more DDT to be exeeted In the milk.

Since then, more than 11)0 utlclw on this relatlonshlp have led to the Zenera) acceptanos that smokers' babks ttenerally weith 130 to 230 g lees than no.pnoken' babies, and twice as many or the former welth ler than 2300 It (13). The 1973 report of 1he Heal1A Conapuencw of Jnrokbtt pressnted evldenoe to support a uuul at.otLtloe betw.ut cigarette smoking and fetal growth re- tardation (39). A strong dewruponae rolatlonshlp was also eatab- IWted in khat re)wrt, with dlfbraacee In a.itiht being ln direct pro- portfoa to tLs nusebr of tlprettar smoked. The folbwlint additional points were summarir.ed In the 1973 report to further support tlr causal association between clptette .asoklnj durlnj preVsascy an/ lower birth writht: 1. Results are conabtent In all atudlee, retrospective and pro- apecthe, from many dlf(atent eountslee, reoea, cultures, and Poaaphk settings. 2.

If a woman dvea up smoking by the fourth month of ptat n.ney, her rWu of delivering a bw-blrth-weight baby Is dmtlar to that of a nonsmoker. Subequmt to the 1973 t.eport, additional reports have futtber ' dleattood •and oorrobonted the association between smoking In : preenancy and low birth welght (19. 2S, 33, 35). Sr.okLt; ad Perbwtd alortal/iy A atront, probably nusd, association between cigarette rmoklst and higher late felal and Infant mQrta)!ty rata amoru smokers' Infants Ii now well establhhed (38). Retrwpect7ve and prospective studies have nweakd a etatbtkally significant relatbnahip between dptette amoklnlt and an elevated mortality risk among lhe Infants of emoken. In three of these studies of sufficient du to permit ad- Justment for olher risk factors, a highly significant independent a} wcdatlon between unok•kg, and mortality wu establlshed. Patt of the discrepancy in results between these studies and those In which a dtnlflcant assodatJon between smoking and Infant mortality was not demonstrated may be explained by a lack of adjustment for risk facton other than smoklnt. The 1973 report also presented evidence Indicating that the higher relative risks occurred among populations with risk facton other than smokint being ptesenl, such as socioeconomic ttatus, aae, parity, nce, and previous pregnancy hittory. 2 3 Sinee 1973, a series of articles by Ateyer, et al. analywd data from the Ontarlo PerinatN Mortality Study of all deqle births In ten Ontario teaching hospitals In 1960-61 (26, 27, 28).'fhe study In- .olved 51,190 birtha, inciuding 701 faW deaths and 653 early neo- naW deaths, and was supplemented by clWcal records with Inter- views of mothers In lhe hoepltal. Intetv(ews with tumethotbts and attending physkluu, and autopsy rococda (29). PerlnaW tportallty rterened sisnifkantiy with amokinl; and was alw affected by such bcton as maternal age, parlty, wdoeoonomlc itatua, previous prelnancy history, hemoglobin levd, and other rlak factors (29). SmokLtl freqtsencka also varied by many of theae rhvacterist(cs. Smoking and other risk factors were crowtabulated among 52 data subgroups. In all subgroups, the mortality Increaae with amoking was dosn related, but not In a almpb. Ilnear way. The haeaaed risk of per(naW mortality associated with light smoking among youn& low-parity, nonanemie mothers wau less than 10 percent. At fhe other extreme, mothers with other rfak factors of hUlt parity, public hoepiW atatus, with ptevious bw-b(rih-welaht Infanta, or with hemoglobin less than I I t; had further Inuea.ed perlnaW mortality ru1u of 70-100 peeeent when they were smokers. The moet t+Wlfleant siak factor (mortallty ra/e of 78 per 1.000 total blrtlu) was anemla, deflned us hemoglobin of less than 8.0 It, 7be Ailta+e of ame earlier studies to find a significant Increase In pee(naW mortality with maternal smoking may be due to selection of study populations from the end of the spectrurn, where Utht smoking Ih naodated with only a rtllht lncreaae In perlnatal risk. Thtf evidence points up how population selection could Inlluence study MdinO and shows that exposuse to the effects of smoking during pregnancy ir much more danprotu for lhe babted of some women than for others. Theae findings are oorrobonted by a num- ler of dudka in which feW, neoruW, or perlnaW •mortality rates ate compared for amoklnt and nonsmokins women, contrvUlnt for the effects of various risk factors ptevioualy mentloned (1, 12, 22, 36). Additional data were published In 1976-1977 (26, 27) and re- +ealed that frequenckt of low birth weight (under 2500 t), preterm delivery (< 38 weeks), per(naW morta8ty, abruptlo plaoentae, pla- centa prevla, bfeedin8 durisu pregnanry, and prolonged and pre• euture rupture of the membranes Increard directly and~dpdfl- cantly (p< 0.00001) u the level of maternal smoking Increasr,d (Tablea I and 2). The 1976 paper used multiple repadon analyah to measure the Independent effect of amoklnt on the various risk factors. The probabilities of these complications were also com- pared (Fiaurs 1).

The relationship Itclwecn smoking and raluccvl birth weight i, independent of all other factors that influence birth wei/;hl, auch i. race.

It is al~, independent of gcstntional age (2, 19, 20, 22. 54. 72. 115, 141, 157, ls.r 166, 169, 192, 206). 3. The morc the woman smokas during leregnancy, the greater th,• reduction in birth wcighl; this is a dosc-resltonse relationship (2• Y2..11. 47, 54, 89, 101, 102, 103. 115, 118, 119, 137. 142, 143, 169, 189, 192. 19.r. 206). 4. If a woman gives up smoking (luring pregnancy, her risk od delivering a low-birth-weight baby is similar to thal of a nonsmokt•r (22, 54, 101, 103, 206). To illustrate typical results of studies showing the acvociation between maternal smoking and an increased proportion of low-hirth- weight infanLs, five published studies with an aggregated totAl of almost 113,000 births in Wales, the United States, and Canada arr summarized in Table 1. In these populations, 34 to 54 percent of l1K• mothers smoked during pregnancy and on the average had twice 14 many low-birth-weight babies as the nonsmokers. Under lhew• condilions, from 21 to 39 percent of the low-birth-weight incidence in ~~ the total population could be attributed to maternal smoking (2, 20. 115, 1 J7, 142, 143). An outstanding feature of the relationship _belwecn matcrn,l smoking and hirth weight is its deliendence on the levcl of matxrnll smoking and its independence of the large variety of other factors th"t influence birth weiKhl, such as maternal size, maternal weight (C1en' age, parily, socioeconomic status, and sex of child (1, 2, 20, 22, Jl.

The mclhaul for slwlyinR spontaneous abortions that may be th,• least subject to error if carefully done is the traditional, retrarix.•ctive, case-control approach, used recently by Kline and coworkers (A7). In their study a log-linear analysis was used to test the hypothesis that maternal smoking is associated with spontaneous abortion, controllinR for confounding variables such as agc, number of previous spontaneous ahortions, induced ahortions, and live births. Of the cases uf spontane- ous abortion, 41 percent were smokers compartrt with 28 percent of the controls, giving an odds ratio of 1.8. This Ieada to the conclusion that smoking during pregnancy is a risk factor for spontaneous abortion. Perinatal Mortality Most of the cpidemiological studies about which questions of causality have arisen have usal porinaltal death (late fetal and early nconatal), neonatal death, or combinations of these as their outcome variable. Ascertainmcnt and recordkeeping may start at 20 wecks, at 28 wecks, or at the time of registration. These differenecs in definition anti desif,.n affecl the study results but are not fundamental to the baaic questions raiac.l in the 1973 report and by other authors. Progress toward resolving these questions has been made since the 1973 report through new studies and analyses in which attention is paid not only to differences in the number of cigarettes smoked but also to other characteristics of the atudy populations. A table from Fabia's study of a 10 i>ercent random sample of registered births in Quebec in 1970-71 illustrates this approach (Table 5). Within subgroul's of the population by matk-rnal age, llarity, and years of school, the relative Ixrinatal mortality risk for smoking versus nonsmoking mothers varies from 1.00 to 1.81 for categories with at least 10 dcaths (67).

ClgareHe Smoking and Fetal and Infant Mprtallty Overview In conlrauvt with the slrong, con.vi4t.enl relationship of matcrnal smoking to ralucecl birth weight, the rclalion.hifi of maternal .rmokinK to pcrinatal mortality ha,. lwvn marked hy variation in the level of increased risk for women who smoke. This has lal to ctnlrovcr-+y n.v to whether there truly are lethal cffcct-v for the fclug or neonate cauK4l by maternal smoking. Earlicr cfriclcmiulc4,rical Ylurlics of lhc av.vocialinn Ir<lwcen matcrnal cigarette smoking and I,Lrinatal mortalily (fctsrl dcnlhx, nconat:rl deaths, or Ircrinal:rl dculh.r) were reviewed in the 1971. 1972, and 1973 reports on TLc Hrnllh Conraynenr.s of Smnkinq (190-192). The 1971 rcfwrl gave details of 12 slwlit..~s of maternal snx>king and lhc incidence of slontancous ubortion, slillbirth, and neonatal death (20, 41, 54, X7. 101. 141. 1.51, 164, 166, 188. frM, 212). The incrcmv-vl risk of loew among smokers varial from elurly to study. Inconsistencies between studies were cleacrilxxi, and it was noted that both smoking habits nnJ pcrinatal lovs were influcncal I,y such factors as social class, matcrnal a{ c, an~l Irarily. Itush and Ka.w reviewed the English language lilc•ralun• in 1972 unrl found rclwsrt.v of 12.388 pcrinatal deaths ancl alm,rtr+in+ w,tlr a rnvan cxcr:cr IK•rinal:cl hr.v fur srnctkcrrv of :l4.4 Ikrccnl• Whrn• rol-rW.l, c•xci•.m hi\v w:w higher amonlz the txxtr anrl arnon/; I,I:rrkv Thc•,r rlu,ly or IJ:u•k anil white wurncn in 13uYtun showed cxcc-~< 8-'2R ,1 mortalily risks of 86 percent for black smokers anrl I1 Ixrc, for w hitc amokcrs (16.Y). the 1973 report (192) summarizccl studies lhat were published up to lhlt rlatc and contained a critical analysis of known reasnns for cariabililIIn1 incrc.a.adc hcrinatal Icht. Much of lhcl c+rtrovcr.ry atxwt ,mnkinR ncethcr maternal smoking clicl or did not causc .fclal or neonatal loss n•ntcrcl around the ha.rically irrelevant iwucg of whclhcr slwlics were „I,r~cl,cclivc" or "rxaroslLclivc° (usually rcfcrrinK to the time at which .m„king information was olrtainal rnlhcr than to whether the study M„ I,:1!wd on a cohnrl or Irirths or on a scl of cases anrl controls), nncl „n u•hclhcr or not the rlirrcrrnccs were "atalislicully sif{nificanl." (•I;,,.ificalion or the slwlics rcvicwwl in the 1973 report according to <Iatistical significance revealed that sludics in which the higher rates „f mort,dily for lhc infanLs of smokcnt coml>.lrcvl with nonsmokers a significant level (usually Ir <0.0.5 or smallcr) (2/), 22. an• 56, 124. 142, 10, 11;.5, 1Xr1) har) mortalily rulios (smoker ratj:: nonsmnkcr rate) that ranged from 1.38 to 1.78, whereas studies in rhich significant Icvcls were not reached (41. 141, 151, 155, 166, 18.`1, .~);) had morL•tlily r.tlicrt that ranged from 1.01 to 1.06. Both groutxs rontainccl retriwixxtivc and {irayicctivc studics of comparable sizc. Statiaticnl significance obviously dcpenrkvl upon thc combined cffccts .f the risk ratio and the sizc of the study. A further source of rnnlrnvcmy in this nuttcr wa.t the fact that when one compares ncnnatal death rates for Inw-lrirth-wciRht babies only, the low-weight hahics of smokers hnvc lower death rat,es than those of nonsmokers. This apparently paradoxical relationship is partly due to the rclaliv4zly Rrrotcr maturity of the under-2,500-Rrnm smokers' Labics. It is also duc to the fact that mntcrnnl smoking affects birlh weight more amngly than it cloc.r neonatal morLtlity. Because the denominators of Ihc+c rates include only babies under 2,500grams, the downward shift nf hirth weight wilh matj--rnnl smoking inflat•es the denominators and lnwrn neonatal murlatlily rnlca fur smokers. Numcrntory include a majnrity or low-birth wcighl habics, whether or not the mother %mokes. This maltcr is rliaeusacvl mnrc fully in the 1973 report (192) and in the commentary Iry Meyer anti t.omstock (114). In the 1973 rcfwrl, nnalysi.a of rexvons for variability between sturlics include<I two imfxnrtanl IainLa.

Separate calculalions for fetal and neonatal deaths (not shown) indicated a fetal death pattcrn very similar to the one shown for pcrinat.al deaths. Neonatal dcalhs appeared to (x duc solely to an increased risk of early delivery amonR sn)okcrs' babies, rather than to diffcrencrs in survival between smokers' and nonsmokcrs' babies of the same gestational age. A similar approach wa.q applied to the risk of abruptio placcntac. placenta previa, and premature rupture of membranes for smokers arrl nonsmokcrs, as shown in Figurc 8. All o- these complications are morc frequent in smokers than in nonsmokers throughout gestation, hul again the biggest differences occur in the wocks of pregnancy from M to 32 or 34 weeks (11h). The rclalionnhifu between maternal amokinR. these comlrlicalinnn, early fetal Ilcalh, and pr•etcrtn delivery accoml>a- nial by neonatal Ilenlh are apparent from the stalislieal a_wocialion., between them anfl from thc similar time patterns they share.

That is, the effect of anxrking on birth weight was still ol>_vcrvcd although diminished by these procedures. From this the authors concluded that "a large part of the effect of maternal smoking is mediated through maternal wciRhl gain with only a very small additional direct effect on the fclus. This suggcwts that increasing weight gain in smoking mothcrs might prevent some of the harmful cffccL% of smoking on fetal growth."

The samc baby is weighed twice, once while growing in ulero and contributing to mal.crnal weight gain, aml again at birth. In this way the mother gains keiKhl because the I,al,y is growin/,•, and not vice versa.

Spontaneous abortions are difficult to study liecauu: of problems in a.acertrinment.

(The regrevion equation for this rvlalinn was Pcn-Z0.1-0./ [HbCOr), (R--0.094).) This figure also shows the relation of oxygrn tension of the inferior vena cava below the ductus venosus to carboxyhemoglobin concentration in the fetus. At 10 percent cariwxy hcmoglobin concentration, inferior vena cava oxygen tension dc- creased from a control value of aboul 16.0 to 12.5 t.orr. (The regression equation for this relation was Paa--0.3 [HbCOr),(It--.ODfi).) As noted aiwvc, the fclus, which normally has a relatively k,w oxygen tension in relation to that of the adult, is particularly vulnerable to these rlecrement.a in blood oxygen tension with incrca.101 carhvxyhcmo{llobin concentration.

Clue, to these mechaniama might he foun/l if certain causes of de;tth showed an cxcra.s among the infunts of smoking molhcrs. Several nuthcxs have reported cause-specific mortality rates for the infants of smokers nnd nonsmokers. Andrews and McGarry (2) relxlrted atillhirlh rawa of 1.30 per 100 births for nonsmokcrs and 1.54 p_r 100 for smokers, among which 0.11 and 0.39 were due to anwpartum hemorrhage for nonsmokers and smokers respectively. For neonatal dcathr, causcs showing excess rates for infants of smoking mothers were "immaturi- ty (no other cause)," "rcnpirat.ory distress syndrome," and "pncumo- nia," with overall rates of 1.10 anti 1.40 for nonsmokers, and emokcr., respectively (Tahlcs 7 and 8). Comstock, et al. (30) compared olJscrved neonat.al deaths of smokers' babies with numbers of deaths expectad at nonsmoker rates. Out of 100 total observed deaths, smokers' infant.t had excesses of 17 due to immaturily, 15 due to asphyxia and atelect.a,is, and 7 due to birth injuries, with deficiencies of -7 due to congenital defecta and -4 due to "other," leaving a net excess of +28. In Lhe prospective study of 9.169 pregnancies carried out by Coujard, et al. (68), causes of stillbirth that increased significantly with maternal smoking were "abruptio placentac" (p-.005) and "unknown cause" (p-0.0005). Overall differences in stillbirth ratcs showed an excess for smokers nt a significance level of p-0.0U01 (Table 9). ( 4du;ru. ~ NruJ.•r wr JvG.rrcr+ t nf .n.i- fww,(..n.u. .,lh r.r wAh.

The most serious of Lhee problems is the hias intralucxvl by the study tle-Rign "ulling in significantly younger aM for the "fulure amokcr" group (mean age 19.70±0.15) than for his nonsmokers (22-10±0.04); the doubly rctrm, apeclive nature of lho Informalion Rathoral(womon being a.aked alwwl amokinR habits at the time of Itrevinua pregnancies); and lack of control for other imlxtrtanl factora influoncing birth wciRht, such ar primiparity and sex of child. Silverman addr•c,~sml the question of whether the smoker rnlhcr than the smoking wa., responsible for increased frequency of low Itirth weight by comparing lutirs of births to the same worrian, using data from the 1963 private ccnsus of the population of Washinaton Gtunty, Maryland (28). In this ccnsus nll mcmbcrs of lhe houscholtl were listed with birth dates, and all members were asked whcthcr and how much they smoked and when lhcy had aLarted. Uaing these data, Silverman constructed a population of Imira of hirth.s that occurretl durinR the I7- year period prior to lhc census date of July 15, 1963. Assuming that the mothers did not stop smokinR durinR pregnancy and that the age or starting was accurately rcitortal, shc was able to compare birth weights in first and second births of 143 women who smokat during the second pregnancy, but not during the first, wilh corresponding birth weights from 392 women who smoked during neither pregnancy and 491 women who smoked during both pregnancies. The many problems inherent in this slwly were fac~.vl, and adjustments were made insofar as possible. For examltle, as in Yerushalmy's stutly, significantly more of lhc future smokers (44.8 percent) were under ZO years of age at the time of the first aludy birth, comparcvl with 7.d.5 percent of the continuing nonsmokers. Young, primiparous mothcrs are known to have lighter babies than older mothers with higher parity. When wcighLs were compared specific for maternal age and sc:t of child, the mean birlh weight for lhc first memlx:r of the birth I+air was lower in four out of six comparisons and higher in two. With simultaneous adjustment for the effecty of infanl st:x, rnatcrnal agc. and birth ortlcr, there were no sif,rnificanl differences in mean birtIt weight tliffcrcncc among pairs in which the mother smoked during Itulh Itrcl,•nancics and paim in which the mother smoked during lhe .,n,l pregnancy of the Iinlr, Itul not tho flra.

Furthermorr, the I,ioln,icai cffecLs or carlxm muntixitlc, nicvdinc, and other known ,,,ntlwencnts or cigarette srnnke unt compatible with the findinp. from cpwlrmiulogic aludica.

In nddition, attenllon should be paid to the fxxavibilily that 1vi}•ehologica) makeup and alrength of addiction to cigarette smoking may have an independent influence on some of the outcomes I,cing .twlivYl. Future studies should not only ndjust for independent factors that influence whether or not a woman 1>w•comcy u smoker and smukcs during pregnancy but shot:ld also distinguish Iktwecn the cffccLv of a Irrsnnalily type that ndupLq rmnking and the physical effccLv of lhc "moke on mother, ltlaccnta, rtntl fvlux. S.aaury I. Babies born to women who smnkc during pregnancy are on the average 200 grams lighter than babies born to comparable women who do not smoke. The whole tlislrihution or hirlh weights of smokers' habics is shifted downward, antl twice Jts many of these babies weigh kft than 2,500 grams compared with bahics of nonsmokers. There is +bundant evidence that mnlernal smoking is a direct cause of the reduction in birth weight. Z. Birth weight is affected by matcrnal smoking independently and t~ a uniform exl.ent, rc/;:trtllcxi of other determinants of birth wei/,•ht. The more the mothcr srnokes, the greater the reduction in birth wcighl of the baby. 8-2G 1 8-Y'I

Neurological abnor- malities, including minimal ccrchral dysfunction and abnormal or borderline cncephah+gams, were slightly more common amonR children of smoking women, although this differrnce was not quite statistically si"ificant. In a batttry of psychological tests, the mean scort.~s of children of nonsmoking molhcrs were bcllcr than those of smokers' children in 45 out of 48 corrclations, and the difference v++}% significant in 14 of these.

The rclative risk eatimata for perinua) mortality and prdum delivery ate remu! ably oomiuenl, etpocially eootidering that these wlhors conducted independnr tyntheses a/ the lilertture. Estimates of the eelalive risk of low birthweight ranged from 1.l1 (Aktnloth 1961) to 2.42 (Kruner 19H7), probably because of diffetences in the number of studies used to derive the estimate. fcr this rta.otl. attr(bulabk risk percent fa a given pevaknoe of smoking is more vRriabk fa low birthweight than for perinatal arortality and preWm delivery. Based on dau Uw Indicate UW about 23 percent of U.S. women smoke Ilvou6houl pretnancy, it can be estimated that 3 to 6 percent of perinual duths, 1? to 26 percent of low birthweight birtht, and I to 10 percent of preterm deliveries could be prevtmed by eliminuion of ImoRing dur(nt pegnaney. In SIVupt with a 30-peroent pevdenct of tmoking, such as women with less than a high school edueation, approsimately 10 to I I percent of yerinatal deaths, 29 to 42 percent of bw birthweight binlu, and 141o It percent of preterm deliveries might be prevented by elimination of smoking during Orcen.ncy.

Both pftlerm ldivery and SCA increase the risk of cerebral p.lsy. although the risk Is much grcaur br prelene delivery (f7lenbert and Nelwn 1979). SGA is utocired with Increased sisk of noonud .nd perinalul nsorulily at every geuatbnal age (Koops. Morgan. Sauaglia 1982; LLbclrcneo, Seuts.

Estimates vary anong sludies, but binhwcight Is redaced by an average of approaimauly 200 g, and the praponion of low birthweigN Is approsimalely doublod by cigarette imoking (Mcyer, lonu, Tonucla 1976; US DIIHS 1980. US OHEW 1979; McInlosh 1994; Conunittee to Study the Prevention of Low Binhweight 150113; Kr.mer 19g7). Mean "weigN decreases ud the percent bw binhweighl increasn with Increasing num- ber of eipreues uroked daily. The relationship between eigarctte smoking and dareued birthweight is considered to be uusal (US DHEW 1979; US OHIIS 1980. 1919). Smoking affects birthweigN ud the percentage of babies who are born of low birthweitht by rWrdinj feul growth. A measwe of (dal growth teuntation is the p+obability of delivering an Infant who is in the less than 10th percentile for gestational age. The relative risk of SGA is about 3.3- to 1.4fold hither arrwng the Infants of smuken than for Ihe infants of nonsnKSkens (Ounsted. Mou, Scott 19g3). fiesesm birth Is also associatod with malemal smoking, dthouth not as strongly. Estimates of the relative risk of delivering before 37 weeks of gestalon oe typically about 1.5 fow smoking during fxegnancy (Cormnitlee to Study the Prevemion of Low Birthwcight 1993.
