Abstract

Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or type II diabetes is a considerable health burden of western societies. No reliable screening method is available to detect the persons who are predisposed in the population and due to our incomplete knowledge on the molecular mechanisms leading to NIDDM we have very few means to influence the onset and development of this diverse disease. To change this situation COST B5's main objectives are:

-search for genetic markers of insulin resistance in NIDDM and rare syndromes of insulin resistance.

-studies on insulin receptor function

-studies on the intracellular mechanism of insulin action in normal and pathological states. ates.
