Editorial Note: Largely because the public shrinks at the sight and thought of malformed babies, the recent case concerned with the use of thalidomide has, nonetheless, served to bring before the public the need for proof of safety before new drugs are released. For emphasis, we excerpt pertinent paragraphs of an article by Dr. Fred M. Taylor of Houston, Texas appearing in the May 1960 issue of our journal.
