Further evidence for a predominantly maternal transmission of maturity-onset type diabetes

Endokrinologie. 1976 Oct;68(1):121-4.


A significantly increased maternal diabetes transmission was observed in young diabetics with maturity-onset type diabetes as compared to those with classical juvenile-onset type diabetes (P less than 0.001). With respect to paternal diabetes transmission, on the other hand, there was not found a similar difference between both types of diabetes mellitus.
