Cafe Sci - Thalidomie and 'the forgotten thalidomide' revisited

19:00 - 20:45

3-7 Union Bridge, AB11 6BG Aberdeen
Thalidomide notoriously caused severe damage to babies between 1958 and 1962. It is being used again widely, but has tragically caused a new generation of damaged children in Brazil. What have we learnt from the original disaster? Can the drug (and others like it) ever be made ‘safe’ but retain clinical benefits?

Speaker: Dr Neil Vargesson, Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen
