Abstract Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the associations of six single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of three genes (DRD3, COMT, and SCL6A4) with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Southern Chinese. Subjects and Methods: Five hundred ninety-five cases with T2DM and 725 healthy controls of Han origin were recruited from six hospitals in Guangdong Province, Southern China. Fasting serum concentrations of markers of interest (total cholesterol, triglyceride, plasma glucose, etc.) were… CONTINUE READING
