The Boston Gestational Diabetes Studies: Review and Perspectives
The major conclusions for two controlled intervention trials conducted in Boston City and Boston Lying-in Hospitals have been presented at previous Aberdeen Colloquiums. At the first Aberdeen Colloquium, the study design, its rationale and pregnancy outcomes were described (O’Sullivan 1975). On the occasion of the second Colloquium, the subsequent development of diabetes mellitus and predictor variables were explored (O’Sullivan 1979). Finally, at the third Colloquium, the experience with both morbidity and mortality in our study subjects was described (O’Sullivan 1984).
