Thalidomide (Thalomid)

Make a 3D molecule structure model of the drug Thalidomide (Thalomid) out of Genuine Molymod Components by Indigo.

Thalidomide was a sedative prescribed to pregnant women in the 50's & 60's that turned out to have disasterous consequences. The R enantiomer of the drug acted as it should but the mirror image caused serious birth defects. Other biologically active compounds with mirror images include LSD but only 1 is active & the other is excreted. The thalidomide structure is very similar to the purine ring structure found in the nucleic acid bases adenine & guanine which is what caused it to interfere with developing embryos.

The drug has had a second chance since it turns out to be effective in treating leprosy & some cancers but can only be dispensed under very strict guidelines.
