##### Description
Based on recent COSY-11 results of measurements of total cross sections for the quasi-free pn-->pn eta reaction we determine the isospin I=0 component of the total cross section for the NN-->NN eta reaction down to the threshold. We show that the energy dependence of the total cross section ratios {\sigma_{I=0}(pn-->pn eta)}/{\sigma(pp-->pp eta)} and \sigma_{I=0}(pn-->pn eta)}/{\sigma(pn-->d eta)} can be described using the Faldt and Wilkin analitical parametrization of the nucleon-nucleon final state interaction.
