Although β-cell dysfunction is considered the main contributing factor in the development of NODAT, the precise pathogenesis has not been identified. Although several cytokines have been suggested to be involved in the inflammation of islet beta cells in diabetes mellitus, only rarely have studies examined β-cell dysfunction in NODAT. Therefore, we examined the association between NODAT and 18 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located within the 10 genes of interleukins (IL) or their receptors, which might be related with β-cell dysfunction after kidney transplantation...
