2nd International Conference on Genomics & Pharmacogenomics

Abstract
With a prevalence rate of more than 25% among adult population, type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a very common disorder in Saudi Arabia, reaching epidemic dimensions. The possible etiological factors involved in the high prevalence of T2D in the Saudis include obesity, poor dietary habits, sedentarily and genetic factors in a population with a high degree of consanguinity. The finding that T2D accumulates in Saudi pedigrees supports further the view that genes have a significant role in the etiology of the disease. The majority of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) using high density Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) microarrays have been mostly limited to populations of European descent so far. It is now time to take lessons from other studies and find out if genetics also plays an important role to reach Type-2 diabetes at epidemic level in Arab population.
Biography
