Summary, in English

Recently, imbalance in the vasopressin (AVP) system, measured as elevated levels of copeptin (the c-terminal part of the AVP pro-hormone) in plasma, was linked to development of abdominal obesity and diabetes mellitus (DM). Here, we aim to investigate if genetic variation of the human AVP receptor 1b gene (AVPR1B) is associated with measures of obesity and DM.
