The objective of the present study was to observe the effect of sitagliptin on obese patients with insulin treatment-induced diabetes mellitus. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 120 obese patients with insulin treatment-induced diabetes mellitus were consecutively selected and divided into the control group (n=35), observation group 1 (n=40), and observation group 2 (n=45). The control group received different types or doses of insulin, observation group 1 received insulin combined with metformin, and observation group 2 received insulin combined with sitagliptin. The therapeutic effects were compared at the 6-month fol...

Through an age-, and gender-matched case-control study, we determined the association of T. gondii infection and obesity using serological and molecular methods. Cases included 203 persons with obesity, and controls included 203 persons without obesity. Participants were tested for the presence of anti-Toxoplas...

Here we report a successful percutaneous endovascular retrieval of a VenaTech LP inferior vena cava (IVC) filter (B. Braun, Evanston, Illinois) that had migrated to the right ventricle in a morbidly obese patient who presented with chest pain. Case reports such as this are exempt from institutional review board approval.

Conclusions: The present study has confirmed high levels of overweight and obesity in Maltese children. It also provides proof of concept of scalability by demonstrating the feasibility of undertaking a relatively inexpensive study of an entire childhood population. The modus operandi (utilizing physical education teachers) could relatively easily be up scaled for any country.

(Florida Atlantic University) A number of factors, including obesity, shorten the lifespan for those with schizophrenia by 20 years and by 10 years for those with bipolar disorder compared to the general population. In the first study to compare long-term weight gain across psychotic disorders, researchers from FAU show that expanding waistlines and the way body fat is distributed are largely to blame.

Conclusion: PBMCs β2AR, underexpressed in centrally obese, are associated with a better metabolic profile and showed a protective role for the development of CO. The discovery of β2AR as a new molecular marker of obesity subphenotypes in PBMCs might contribute to clarify the adrenergic immunomodulation of inflammatory obesity.
