The study aims to evaluate IFG, IGT or unknown type 2 diabetes mellitus in new classes at high risk to develop alterations of glucose metabolism and definition of new pathogenic mechanisms of insulin resistance and atherosclerosis.

The following classes of subjects at high risk will be considered:First degree relatives of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke, patients with heart valve disease. age will be > 30 years, both gender.

Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2

Official Title: New Physiopathogenics Mechanisms Susceptible of Pharmacological Developments (Insulin Resistance and Atherosclerosis)

Further study details as provided by IRCCS San Raffaele:

Enrollment: 1997
Study Start Date: June 1997
Study Completion Date: May 2006
Case: 1,2,3
  1. First degree relatives of patients with type 2 diabetes
  2. Patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke
  3. patients with heart valve disease
Control: 4
Healthy controls

Detailed Description:
The primary outcome of the study is evaluation of glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion before and 2 hours post-glucose load Secondary outcomes are evaluation of endothelial function, of natriuretic peptides and free fatty acids, and inflammation before and 2 hours post-glucose load. New candidate genes will be also evaluated.
