Досліджено роль релаксину−2 у регуляції метаболізму, зокрема вуглеводного та жирового обмінів. Визначено механізми його антиоксидантної дії та діагностичний потенціал у визначенні кардіометаболічних захворювань.

Ключові слова: серцево−судинні захворювання, гіпертонічна хвороба, цукровий діабет 2−го типу, релаксин−2, інсулінорезистентність, метаболізм, антиоксидантна дія.
