Zofran, a drug commonly used to treat nausea in pregnant women and cancer patients, has recently been identified to cause severe birth defects in newborn infants. One of the complications linked to Zofran is Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). This condition is defined as an unborn baby weighing less than 90% of other infants during the same gestational period.
Zofran works by blocking serotonin, a chemical in the body used to produce feelings of nausea and pain. It is believed that high levels of serotonin in the blood that access the placenta is the cause of IUGR, but this has yet to be confirmed. Babies suffering from intrauterine growth restriction can still be born in some cases. Other times, doctors will determine that the fetus is in distress and the mother must undergo emergency C-section. In some rare cases, the unborn baby can die due to lack of oxygen and nutrients caused by IUGR.
If you or a loved one has suffered complications arising from Zofran use, including intrauterine growth restriction, you may have a case against the drug manufacturer. Zofran cases are being investigated and some lawsuits have been filed.
