New developments in birth defects research.

Ed. by Nelson A. Gaslem.

Nova Biomedical Books


241 pages




The authors, who are medical specialists from Europe and the US, discuss defects of the lymphatic system, neural tube defects, Ostium Secundum Atrial Septal Defect, and duplication of the alimentary tract. Four of the chapters cover cystic fibrosis, including prenatal diagnosis and the link between genetics and the disease. Like other volumes from this publisher, abstracts from chapters form most of the preface. The editor's credentials are not given. The presence of grammatical and spelling errors suggest that the volume has not been edited carefully.
