  • a Figures in parenthesis are percentages of total in each column

  • b Value for G6DP-deficient infants significantly different from that of G6DP-intermediate infants (P < .001).

  • c Value for G6DP-intermediate infants significantly different from that of G6DP-normal infants (P < .001).

  • d Figures in parenthesis are percentages of total in that row.
