    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia resulting from pancreatic dysfunction and insulin resistance. It is a common disorder with a complex pattern of inheritance, likely to reflect the influence of multiple genetic and environmental factors on the diabetes risk. READ MORE

  2. 2. Candidate gene analyses and genome-wide screens in multiple sclerosis

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to perform detailed investigations of a presumed high-risk area, namely the county of Värmland, to see if previous results from our group indicating a high frequency of multiple sclerosis (MS) could be confirmed. We soon identified an aggregation of MS cases in the parish of Lysvik located in the north of Värmland and initiated epidemiological and genetical analyses of the population. READ MORE
