Hope for Babies Born with Alcohol Damage


A study by Northwestern Medicine has found that reversing fetal alcohol damage after birth is possible using two commonly used drugs.

Lead investigator and senior author Eva Redei notes, ‘We’ve shown you can interfere after the damage from alcohol is done. That’s huge. We have identified a potential treatment for alcohol spectrum disorder. Currently, there is none’.
