The effect of chromosome constitution on growth in culture was evaluated by comparing the length of time in culture until cytogenetic analysis among chromosomally normal and abnormal spontaneous abortions. We observed a significant effect of both tissue type and cell type, but not chromosome constitution, on the rate of growth of the cultures.
