AlsalmiAbstractMedicinal plants have always been an important source of new alternative effective compounds for human therapy. Currently, there are many of scientific evidences indicate that the medicinal plants contain a lot of hypoglycemic chemical compounds. The purpose of the present study was to determine the influence of olive leaves extract on hepatorenal injury in diabetic male rats. Experimental diabetes was induced by streptozotocin (STZ). The levels of serum glucose, alanine amin...

Authors: Higuchi I, Kimura Y, Kobayashi M, Narumi K, Furugen A, Miyoshi H, Nakamura A, Yamada T, Atsumi T, Iseki K Abstract The present study aimed to characterize the relationships between plasma lactate, plasma alanine, monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) polymorphisms, and indices of diabetes in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Japan. Eighty-three patients with T2D were prospectively enrolled. The gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis are enhanced and uptake of glucose is decreased in the T2D liver. Since the liver plays an important role in maintaining glucose metabolism, we examined the relationships between ...

Abstract In recent years, there have been exciting new insights into pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes in a number of areas of immunology. In this edition, a collection of four review articles are presented, which encompass new findings presented at the Immunology of Diabetes Society meeting in London 2018. The articles are focused particularly in 4 related areas of investigation, which include autoantibodies in type 1 diabetes, new autoantigenic targets for CD4 T cells, trafficking of immune cells to the pancreas and islet-immune interactions in the pancreas.
