The report, from Kasturba Gandhi Hospital for Women and Children in Chennai, cites two potential causes for the birth defect: Either it was the result of an undetected chromosomal disorder or the mother was exposed to Cyclopamine, a drug that is being researched by a number of U.S. pharmaceutical companies as a potential cancer treatment.
There is no reference in the report on how Cyclopamine became listed as a possible cause.
Wow, if you need any evidence that we should be testing on animals THIS is it.
Screw the monkeys, test away i say.
Whoever the pharmaceutical company is that did this needs to fund this girls medical expenses for the rest of her (likely short) life.
