Abstract

Data from Missouri for the period 1980 to 1985 suggest a dose-response relationship between smoking during pregnancy and the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). However, data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development SIDS Cooperative Epidemiological Study did not support a dose-response relationship. Neither the Missouri data nor the Cooperative Study data support a relationship between the age of occurrence of SIDS and smoking during pregnancy.
