In Reply: The apparent discrepancy noted by
Drs Christin-Maitre and Duron is due to different subsets of the infants being
referred to at each point. Affected mothers had 59 pregnancies and 45 live
births (14 miscarriages), as shown in Table 2. We were able to genotype only
31 of the 45 live-born infants because 2 were stillborn, there were 11 infant
deaths, and 1 infant was not available for genotyping. The 25 infants born
to affected mothers shown in our Figure 1 represent those for whom accurate
birth weights were available. For the other 20, weights were not available,
mostly because they had been delivered at home.
