Antenatal micronutrient supplements in Nepal.

Abstract

The results are presented of two trials in the southern plains of Nepal which examined the effect of maternal multiple micronutrient supplements on birthweight and other aspects of intrauterine growth. The potentially worrisome finding of an apparent association between multiple micronutrient supplementation and increased perinatal and neonatal death is reported.
