Lippen-Kiefer-Gaumen-Spalten (LKGS) gehören mit 1 bis 2 Fällen unter 1000 Lebendgeburten zu den häufigsten angeborenen Anomalien. In der ehemaligen DDR existierte von 1967 bis 1989 ein Register zur Erfassung der Prävalenz der Spaltgeburten. Eine Auswertung dieses Registers ergab Hinweise auf einen möglicherweise durch den Unfall von Tschernobyl bedingten Anstieg der Spaltbildungen um 9,4% von 1987 bis 1989. Der Fehlbildungsdatensatz mit 29.961 Fehlbildungen aus allen bayerischen Kinderkliniken… 
Changes in Congenital Anomaly Incidence in West Coast and Pacific States (USA) after Arrival of Fukushima Fallout
TLDR
Comparing rates of five congenital anomalies for 2010 and 2011 births from April-November suggests fetal harm from Fukushima may have occurred in western U.S. states.

TLDR
Overall morbidity has remained high in those exposed to the irradiation released by Chernobyl for more than 20 years, and one cannot give credence to the explanation that these numbers are due solely to socioeconomic factors.
Cleft lip and palate in Madagascar 1998-2007.
Chapter II. Consequences of the Chernobyl Catastrophe for Public Health
TLDR
Using objective information collected by scientists in the affected areas, comparisons of morbidity and mortality in territories characterized by identical physiography, demography, and economy revealed significant abnormalities associated with irradiation, unrelated to age or sex (e.g., stable chromosomal aberrations), as well as other genetic and nongenetic pathologies.
GSF - Publication List 2004
TLDR
Array-based comparative genomic hybridization for the detection of DNA sequence copy number changes in Barrett's adenocarcinoma and RNA fingerprinting-a new method to screen for differences in plant litter degrading microbial communities.
Relevance of the Chernobyl Research for the Evaluation of Genetic Radiation Risks in Humans
TLDR
A compilation of findings about early deaths, congenital malformations, Down’s syndrome, cancer and other effects, which were observed in humans after exposure of parents, which can clearly be shown that the official risk estimates are much too low.
Spatial Distribution of Orofacial Cleft Defect Births in Harris County, Texas, 1990 to 1994, and Historical Evidence for the Presence of Low-level Radioactivity in Tap Water
TLDR
There was strong suggestive evidence of an association between elevated radiation levels in tap water and elevated cleft birth prevalence rates by zip codes and attention is invited to environmental causes as potential risk factors for orofacial cleft.
Response to W. Kramer: The human sex odds at birth after the atmospheric atomic bomb tests, after Chernobyl, and in the vicinity of nuclear facilities: comment (doi:10.1007/s11356-011-0644-8)
TLDR
It is shown that the findings and methods concerning the disturbed human sex odds at birth have been criticized for being artifacts of data mining, that the concept of statistical significance was misunderstood, and that confounding factors have not been accounted for have no basis.
The evidence of radiation effects in embryos and fetuses exposed to Chernobyl fallout and the question of dose response
TLDR
A variety of observations of congenital malformations, fetal loss, stillbirths and infant deaths, as well as of Down's syndrome and other health defects in children after the Chernobyl accident exposures suggest that the A-bomb survivor data are incomplete.

TLDR
The study presents data on cardiovascular malformations in Bavarian livebirths, born between 1984 and 1991, and the first time regional data on birth prevalences of congenital heart defects in wide spectrum groups is presented.

TLDR
The effects of inbreeding on the sex ratio, the frequency of major congenital malformations, stillbirths, neonatal deaths, and infantile deaths in Japan are described.
Regression analysis of time trends in perinatal mortality in Germany 1980-1993.
TLDR
It is shown that, in Germany as a whole, there was a significantly elevated perinatal mortality proportion in 1987 as compared to the trend function, which contradicts the present radiobiologic knowledge.
Perinatal mortality in Germany following the Chernobyl accident
TLDR
Two peaks of cesium concentration are found that were associated with the observed two peaks of monthly perinatal mortality data with a delay of 7 months.
Very high mutation rate in offspring of Chernobyl accident liquidators
TLDR
Results indicate that low doses of radiation can induce multiple changes in human germline DNA, particularly in children born to liquidator families.
[Radiation effects of exposure during prenatal development].
TLDR
On the basis of experimental data with mammals it is assumed that a radiation dose of about 0.2 Gy doubles the malformation risk of the human embryo, and there is probably a dose-effect curve with a threshold for this effect.

TLDR
Cystinuria is an hereditary anomaly of renal function, with defective tubular reabsorption of cystine, lysine, arginine and ornithine, and the name and the clinical importance of the condition is entirely referable to this one amino acid.
