“Lysergic acid diethylamide: its effects on human chromosomes and the human organism in utero. A review of current findings”. 
Int. J. Addict. 1972;7(4):701-714.
A review of the findings of current studies dealing with the effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) on human chromosomes, in viva and in vitro, and on the human organism in utero is presented. The studies to date indicate that LSD causes negligible damage to the chromosomes of lymphocytes; however, there is evidence to support the hypothesis that LSD may have adverse effects on the normal development of humans in utero. All studies with LSD and human chromosomes to date have been concerned with visible damage that chromosones may incur; however, LSD may cause irreparable damage to various parts of the body or impair the functioning of chromosomes without actually breaking the chromosomes. Teratogenic effects which may have been due to the use of LSD are reported. The need for further research in this and other areas before the question of whether LSD damages human chromosomes and the body in general can be answered conclusively is emphasized. 19 references.
