Tissue distribution of methamphetamine and amphetamine in premature infants.J Anal Toxicol. 1989 Sep-Oct; 13(5):300-2.JA
An amphetamine-abusing mother who had taken methamphetamine 5 hours before beginning labor gave birth to twins who died 1 to 2 hours after birth; an autopsy and toxicological examination were performed. The results are consistent with previous findings of premature delivery and retarded intrauterine development. Tissue distribution shows a similar pattern to an earlier reported case, though drug concentrations are about 10 times higher.
