Malcomson Law LLP, specialists in the area of Clinical Negligence and Product Liability, are assisting persons who have suffered ill effects as a consequence of the maternal ingestion of Thalidomide. This drug, prescribed to pregnant mothers to aid morning sickness was first marketed in Germany in 1957.
Thalidomide was available in Ireland as tablets, syrup, capsules, drops and suppositories, and was marketed under the brand names Enterosediv, Noctosediv, Poligripan, Prednisev and Softenon.
Those subjected to Thalidomide while in the womb experienced absence of or underdevelopment of their long limbs. Other organs affected included eyes, ears, hearts, digestive, reproductive and urinary tracts with blindness and deafness also arising. While some victims were recognised as Thalidomide victims many others who did not meet the stereo-type of classic Thalidomide type injuries were not so recognised.
