    Abstract

    Specimens used in the experimental section of this paper were obtained primarily from Wayne County, Michigan. This population has been under study since 1959 by one of the authors (C. R.) [1–3]. Some characteristics compiled from 1000 sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) deaths in this population are summarized as they relate to the experimental findings. An additional complementary study [4] presents an in-depth epidemiologic survey.
