Fertility Drugs Linked to Increased Risk of Leukemia
A new study, presented at a conference on childhood cancer in London, suggests there’s a possible link between the use of fertility drugs and leukemia.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady has details:
Researchers based in Paris says children whose moms took fertility drugs were more than twice as likely to develop two kinds of leukemia: the most common kind and a rare type. They also found a 50% higher risk for children of mothers who struggled to conceive for more than a year.
However, the study stops far short of proving any direct link between fertility drugs and leukemia, and also did not find a higher risk among women who had artificial insemination or in-vitro fertilization, even though most IVF patients also take fertility drugs.
