  • This study is in the area of Type 2 diabetes and genetics
  • Healthy Volunteers and those with mild type 2 diabetes may be eligible to participate
  • This study is searching for genes that may affect the body's processing/digestion of glucose/sugar


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Regulation of Hepatic Insulin Extraction:Alterations of Insulin Secretion in Subjects With Genetic Variants That Determine Risk for Non-Insulin Dependant Diabetes Mellitus

Further study details as provided by Washington University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Genes affecting the development of Type 2 diabetes will be identified [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Any differences between genetic groups in the metabolism of glucose/sugar will be studied to the extent that the data allow [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Samples are collected for Glucose & various human peptide measurements and DNA. As peptide assay evolves, specimens may be re-tested.

Estimated Enrollment: 1250
Study Start Date: October 2000
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
This group is just entering the study and will need to be genotyped.
This group has been genotyped and has the gene undergoing study at that time.
This group has been genotyped and does not have the gene currently under study.

Detailed Description:
This study is looking at the genetic influences of type 2 diabetes. It also is investigating the various gastric hormones including but not limited to: insulin, C-peptide, GIP, GLP, & Xenin.
