I am writing on behalf of a frightened, pregnant friend of mine who's
fetus has a balanced translocated chromosome (breaks at 7 Q34 and 13 Q12).
 Her genetic counselor has not been much help.  Neither parent shows the
trait.

She's found recorded evidence of abnormality with translocations at 7 Q32
and & 7 Q36.  She's been told that even if a translocation identical to
hers had been found in a past study, the researcher would only have
published results if an abnormality had resulted.

How do we find someone with the same translocation to determine what the
effect may be on the child?  She's in NYC so has access to some good
doctors, but she's hoping someone from the 'net community may be able to
offer some innovative ideas for how to approach this dilemma.  

Much thanks--
