(Their Consequences on Early Embryogenesis and in vitro Growth of Embryonic Cells)

Part of the Current Topics in Pathology book series (CT PATHOLOGY, volume 62)


During the first half of the century anatomical studies of human spontaneous abortions have demonstrated the importance of abnormalities in the development of the conceptus, and, beginning in 1963, various studies have demonstrated the high frequency of chromosomal anomalies in these abortuses.
