Recent genome-wide association studies have described many loci implicated in type 2 diabetes (T2D) pathophysiology and β-cell dysfunction but have contributed little to the understanding of the genetic basis of insulin resistance. We hypothesized that genes implicated in insulin resistance pathways might be uncovered by accounting for differences in body(More)
To identify novel coding association signals and facilitate characterization of mechanisms influencing glycemic traits and type 2 diabetes risk, we analyzed 109,215 variants derived from exome array genotyping together with an additional 390,225 variants from exome sequence in up to 39,339 normoglycemic individuals from five ancestry groups. We identified a(More)
The aim of this study was to ascertain the impact of injury to the superior mesenteric nerve plexus caused by right colectomy with D3 extended mesenterectomy as performed in the prospective multicenter trial: “Safe Radical D3 Right Hemicolectomy for Cancer through Preoperative Biphasic Multi-detector Computed Tomography” in which all soft tissue surrounding(More)
L indström et al. (1) report from the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study (DPS) that the Finnish Type 2 Diabetes Risk Score (FINDRISC) is useful for identifying individuals in need of lifestyle intervention. Surprisingly, 61% of participants of the DPS, all of whom were overweight and had impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), were not at high risk based on(More)
