A G-band study of chromosomes in liveborn infants

Ann Hum Genet. 1980 Jan;43(3):227-39. doi: 10.1111/j.1469-1809.1980.tb01556.x.


The results of a chromosome survey of 3993 liveborn infants, the majority of which have been studied using G-banding, are reported. The frequency of all types of chromosome abnormalities detected was similar to that found in previous newborn surveys, which were carried out on different socio-economic structure, but the incidence of aneuploid chromosome abnormalities was comparable in the two localities.
