ABSTRACT
McBride, William (1927-), an Australian doctor, discovered in 1961 that the drug thalidomide could cause deformities in unborn children. Thalidomide had been introduced in 1957 and became available in at least 46 countries. It was prescribed in early pregnancy to combat morning sickness, the nausea and vomiting that occurs for some pregnant women. Doctors did not know that the drug damaged developing embryos.
