PREGNANCY SAFETY INDEX CATEGORY A: Controlled studies in women fail to demonstrate a risk to the foetal in the 1st semester (and there is no evidence of a risk in later trimesters) and the possibility to foetal harm remains remote. CATEGORY B: Either animal-reproduction studies have not demonstrated a foetal risk but there are no controlled studies in pregnant women or animal-reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect (other than a decrease in fertility) that was not confirmed in controlled studies in women in the first trimester (and there is no evidence to a risk later trimesters). CATEGORY C: Either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the foetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus. CATEGORY D: There is a positive evidence of human foetal risk, but the benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk (e.g., If the drug is needed in a life-threatening situation or for a serious disease for which safer drugs cannot be used or are ineffective). CATEGORY X: Studies in animals or human beings have demonstrated foetal abnormalities or there is evidence of foetal risk based on human experience or both, and the risk of the use of the drug in pregnant women clearly outweighs any possible benefit. The drug is contradicted in women who are or may become pregnant.
