Özet

Aim Inducing beta cell replication is a potential therapeutic approach for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Recently betatrophin was suggested as a novel stimulator of beta cell proliferation in mice but its role in humans remains to be established. We aimed to investigate betatrophin concentration and its association with metabolic parameters in a group of individuals with normal glucose tolerance, pre-diabetes and diabetes mellitus who had not been previously treated.
