AIMS Potassium inwardly rectifier 6.2 subunit (Kir6.2) of the ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channel encoded by KCNJ11 gene is a therapeutical target for sulfonylureas. KCNJ11 E23K polymorphism was associated with type 2 diabetes in genetic association studies. The aim of the present pharmacogenetic study was to examine the effect of sulfonylurea(More)
Previous studies showed associations between variants in TCF7L2 gene and the therapeutic response to sulfonylureas. All sulfonylureas stimulate insulin secretion by the closure of ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel. The aim of the present study was to compare TCF7L2 genotype specific effect of gliclazide binding to KATP channel A-site (Group 1) with(More)
Pharmacogenetic studies revealed that variants in genes related to the pharmacokinetics of metformin were associated with glucose-lowering effect of metformin. The aim of this study was to investigate possible associations of the variants in genes encoding organic cationic transporters-solute carrier family 22, members A1, A2 (SLC22A1, SLC22A2) and solute(More)
The aim of the present pilot pharmacogenetic study was to analyse quantitative effects of sulphonylurea treatment in addition to metformin on parameters of glycemic control with respect to CDKAL1 genotypes in patients with type 2 diabetes. Effect of 6-month sulphonylurea therapy on glycemic control according to CDKAL1 genotypes was evaluated in 101 patients(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate possible associations of the single-nucleotide variants in six genes encoding the key molecules mediating the metformin pharmacodynamic effect with the response to treatment with metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes. One hundred forty-eight drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes were included in the(More)
