Protein kinase C δ-dependent regulation of Ubiquitin-proteasome system function in breast cancer. Cancer Biomark. 2017 Sep 29;: Authors: Sun S, Wu Q, Song J, Sun S Abstract Besides the crucial role of hyperinsulinemia in the development of breast cancer with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), it has been shown that hyperglycemia could contribute to promote cancer progression. A remarkable association within hyperglycemia, PKCδ and Ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) has been reported, suggesting that PKCδ may mediate high glucose-induced UPS activation in breast cancer cells. Although the...

ConclusionsAfter clarifying the prevalence of sarcopenia in elderly Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, we found that serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein was significantly higher in female patients with sarcopenia than in female patients without sarcopenia. Elevated serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein requires impaired muscle mass and impaired strength.

In observational studies, coffee consumption has been consistently associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Trials examining the effect of coffee consumption on glucose metabolism have been limited by the use of surrogate insulin sensitivity indices, small sample sizes, lack of blinding, and short follow-up duration. We aimed to overcome these limitations in a randomized placebo-controlled trial examining the effects of coffee consumption on insulin sensitivity.

This study systematically reviews and meta-analyzes evidence on the association between built environmental characteristics related to lifestyle behaviour and T2DM risk/prevalence, worldwide. Studies were included when: 1) adult populations (>18y); 2) T2DM or glycaemic markers as outcomes; and 3) physical activity, food environment, residential noise as independent variables were investigated. Fifty-eight studies were eligible. Urban residence was associated with higher T2DM risk/prevalence (OR 1.50 (95%-CI 1.2-1.8; I square= 73%)) as compared to rural residence. Higher neighbourhood walkability was associated with decr...

This study examined possible clinical factors associated with the symptoms of constipation in patients with DM. MethodsThis was a multicenter study. Participants were consecutive Japanese patients undergoing treatment for type 1 or type 2 DM. Constipation was evaluated using the gastrointestinal symptom rating scale. Diabetic neuropathy was evaluated by the presence or absence of peripheral neuropathy of the lower limbs. ResultsOf 419 participants, 258 were men and 161 women (ratio: 1.6:1), with a mean age of 63.6 ± 12.5 years. In multivariate analysis, symptoms of constipation were significantly associated with age...

CONCLUSIONS: Elevated FBG within the normal range is not associated with a significant loss of appendicular LM, but modifications in LM and FM trunk and total distribution with IFG suggest that nutritional and physical lifestyle strategies should be implemented in the pre-diabetic state.

Abstract BackgroundThe outcomes and prognosis of revascularization by either coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with noninsulin‐treated type 2 diabetes mellitus (NITDM) have not yet been well established. MethodsRandomized controlled trials (RCTs) were identified by searching Pubmed, EMBASE, and Cochrane library from inception until May 2016. Heterogeneity was evaluated, and the pooled hazard ratio (HR) was calculated by using a fixed‐effect model. A random‐effect model was used when statistically significant heterogeneity was observed (I2 ≥&...
