References in periodicals archive ?
DEDFUS was designed to determine adherence to recommended eye-treatment protocols and to measure changes in visual acuity among participants who were first evaluated from 1985 through 1987 in diabetes-control programs (DCPs).
Editorial Note: When compared with studies of diabetes-related mortality in the general population, diabetes appears to be recorded more often on the death certificates of persons from the DEDFUS sample (48% versus 40%) [2-4].
