During human pregnancy, there is a huge increase in the total weight of the embryo/fetus from conception to term. The total growth, which is the summation of growth of the various organs and tissues that make up the organism, was analyzed in a previous paper and fitted to the Gompertz equation for growth. In the present study, allometry, the quantitative representation of the consequence of size, was utilized to describe the correlation of individual fetal organ/tissue weights with the total… CONTINUE READING
