  1. CASE CONTROL STUDY OF HEMIFACIAL MICROSOMIA AND DRUG USE
    Martha Werler; Fiscal Year: 2000
    ..Exposure prevalences will be compared between mothers of cases and controls and relative risks will be estimated, while controlling for potential confounding factors. ..
  2. Maternal Vasoactive Exposures and Risk of Clubfoot
    Martha Werler; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Buccal cell swabs will be collected from cases, controls, and their mothers. DNA will be extracted and stored for the purpose of studying genetic risk factors in future studies. ..
  3. Maternal Vasoactive Exposures and Risk of Clubfoot
    Martha Werler; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..The aims of this supplemental grant are to identify genetic factors, as well as gene-smoking interactions, in relation to risk of clubfoot. Our goal is to understand the etiology and pathogenesis of clubfoot, leading to prevention. ..
