Babies die after pregnant women given Viagra

Мамы принимали виагру во время беременности 11 младенцев умерли в Нидерландах

The trial in Amsterdam was focussed around using increased blood flow to assist slow growing placentas.

It appears the drug, which promotes blood flow, may have caused lethal damage to the babies' lungs.

The hope was that the drug "can open up some blood vessels in the placenta and then can help the growth of the fetus", Pammi said. 17 of their children were born with a lung condition, . "All adverse effects occurred after birth".

Since at present, there is no treatment to correct the problem, the women were selected for the drug trial, which showed favourable results in animal studies.

In fact, the buzz on its potential has been building over the years, with rumours that doctors have already been suggesting pregnant women take the drug.

But out of the 93 women using the drug, 19 babies died, 11 of them possibly due to a form of high blood pressure in the lungs which may be linked to the drug.

Of the 90 women in a control group, who took a placebo drug, three developed the same lung issues but no babies died. Women participated in a medical experiment. "They temporarily stopped", - said the leader of the study, gynecologist Wessel Ganzevoort. Spokeswoman Dervila Keane wrote in an email Tuesday that the research is "an investigator initiated study and Pfizer have no involvement in the trial".

Low birth weight contributes to 60% to 80% of neonatal deaths worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. The doctors decided that the child would be better to stay and develop inside the mother.

The further growth and development of the children in the stopped Netherlands study will be monitored and the data further analyzed, according to the medical center. Study inclusion criteria in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands differed slightly, but not enough to explain the varying outcomes, Groom says. Stuff.co.nz reported in March on the results of a study that involved 122 Australian and New Zealand women, half of whom received sildenafil. "We will continue to work with the sponsor to determine next steps, including the suspension of the trial, if necessary".

A second trial with the same drug in Canada has also been paused, though there is no indication anyone there has been harmed.

There are still 15 women in the trial who have yet to give birth. He added that the team has notified Canadian researchers who were also conducting a similar research. It was sildenafil, the active ingredient in many erectile dysfunction drugs.

Patients had even heard about the study and had asked him to prescribe it, he said. At the time the earlier studies were published in 2010, researchers said the treatment should only be used in trials, BBC News reports.

"Maybe they do something differently", he said.
