Abstract

Genetic inheritance predisposing individuals to diabetes mellitus was discussed in this work group. The two forms of the disease, Type 1 (insulin-dependent) and Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) were discussed separately since the pattern of inheritance and genes involved appear to be distinctly different. Within these subtypes there is considerable genetic heterogeneity, and superimposed environmental factors confound the analysis. New technologies that will allow finer molecular analysis, as well as new candidates genes, were presented.
