The relationship between diabetic nephropathy and an insertion (I)/deletion (D) polymorphism in intron 16 of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene is still under debate. The association of ACE gene polymorphism with nephropathy and retinopathy was therefore examined in 362 Japanese patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and 105 healthy control subjects. Distribution of the ACE genotype did not differ between healthy control subjects and diabetic patients without… CONTINUE READING
