To determine the recurrence risk for patients with one prior pregnancy affected with neural tube defects (NTD), the authors have pooled data from eight testing centers. In 831 pregnancies studied because one sib was affected with an NTD, the recurrence rate was 3.0%, with 95% confidence limits of 2.0-4.3%, and 99% confidence limits of 1.8-4.8%. The(More)
Summary: A technique is described in which paper chromatoelectrophoresis is used to measure the bilirubin binding capacity of albumin in scrum. It is equivalent to the Sephadex G-25 method and its results are highly reproducible. From a single pool of serum, multiple determinations indicated the mean bilirubin binding capacity to be 23.7 ± 0.76 (SD) mg/dl(More)
Extract: The cell-free medium obtained after 48 hour culture of phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated leukocytes of three cystic fibrosis (CF) subjects and two carriers, contained a ciliary dyskinesia factor (CDF) detected by a modified rabbit tracheal bioassay. Positive CDF responses began to be observed in supernates of parallel non-stimulated cultures of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP) levels in uncomplicated twin gestations are associated with an increased risk for pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes. METHODS A retrospective data-base analysis was conducted of 267 women with twin pregnancies delivered between January 1988 and October 1994, of whom(More)
