A Genome-wide Scan for Loci Predisposing to Non-syndromic Cleft Lip with or without Cleft Palate in a Honduran Population

Abstract

Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and isolated cleft palate (CPI) are some of the most common congenital malformations, occurring in roughly 1.5-2 per 1,000 Caucasian births, with higher prevalence rates in Hispanic, Asian, and Native American populations (up to 1/500), and lower rates in African populations (1/2,000). Clefting abnormalities are… (More)
