ed in the treatment and management of chronic digestive disorders in pregnancy. It includes a discussion of pharmacologic and alternative therapies available to treat GI symptoms in pregnancy and, importantly, identifies which medications are safe for use in pregnant women and those which should be avoided.

"The major risk to the fetus is encountered during the first trimester of pregnancy," says Dr. Foxx-Orenstein. "It is important for physicians and expectant mothers to maintain a high level of concern for the use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs to treat GI symptoms during pregnancy."

The authors of the monograph also evaluated the safety of endoscopy during pregnancy. Based on a review of published scientific studies, they conclude endoscopy appears to be a safe modality for evaluating GI symptoms in pregnancy.

A full text of the research and findings highlighted in the monograph can be found on the ACG website at http://www.acg.gi.org/physicians/pdfs/PregnancyMonograph.pdf.
