Cyclops Baby Born in India

CHENNAI, India -- Medical staff who helped deliver a one-eyed child born here last week believe the mother may have been given an experimental anti-cancer drug, according to an internal hospital report seen by Wired News.

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.
