The clinical aspects of effectiveness of incretin therapy (WNT-pathogenic path and polymorphism of gene TCF7L2)


The article considers genetic susceptibility to development of diabetes mellitus type II, its micro-vascular complications and intensity of response under application of incretin therapy depending on carriage of polymorphism of gene TCF7L2 involved into WNT-path and incretin axis.
