A specific class of drugs could be effective in treating babies vulnerable to sudden infant death syndrome, Canadian researchers suggest. Researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton said when mothers-to-be smoke during pregnancy the exposure of the fetus to nicotine results in its inability to respond to decreases in oxygen -- known as hypoxia -- which may result in a higher incidence of SIDS.
