Summary

The present study evaluated the effects of KCNQ1 rs2237892 and rs2237895 polymorphisms on repaglinide efficacy in Chinese patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In all, 367 T2DM patients and 214 controls were genotyped. Forty of the T2DM patients were randomly selected to undergo 8 weeks repaglinide treatment. The frequency of the rs2237892 allele was lower in the T2DM patients than in the control group (< 0.05). The frequency of the rs2237895 C allele was higher in T2DM patients than in healthy control subjects (< 0.05). Diabetic patients with the rs2237892 risk C allele had lower fasting insulin levels (< 0.01) and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMAIR;< 0.01) values than carriers of the T allele. Diabetic patients with the rs2237895 risk C allele had higher fasting plasma glucose (< 0.01), postprandial plasma glucose (PPG) levels (< 0.01) and HOMAIR values (< 0.01) than those with the A allele. Following repaglinide treatment, those T2DM patients with the rs2237892 T allele and rs2237895 C allele were more likely to have a positive response to repaglinide in terms of PPG levels (< 0.05) than T2DM patients with the rs2237892 CC and rs2237895 AA genotypes. In conclusion, KCNQ1 rs2237892 and rs2237895 polymorphisms were found to be associated with the therapeutic efficacy of repaglinide in Chinese T2DM patients.
