Healthy Living: Extreme Morning Sickness
Back in 1999, researcher Marlena Fejzo lost her baby because of extreme morning sickness.
Since then, she’s worked tirelessly to find a reason behind the condition that affects two percent of women.
Fejzo has already started research to prove the cause.
Then come trials for therapies that she hopes would be safe for pregnant women.
Since the two genes are also responsible for a form of extreme nausea that occurs in cancer patients, she’s hoping that drug development will be expedited.
