Abstract

The factor B BfF allele was found significantly less frequently in nonobese black women with gestational diabetes mellitus than in the control group. The BfS allele was found more frequently, although not significantly so. These data suggest similar genetic associations among nonobese black women with gestational diabetes mellitus and those with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
