The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of the PRECEDE-PROCEED model combined with self-management theory on self-care behaviors in type 2 diabetic patients.MethodsIn this semi-experimental study, 86 typ...

Publication date: Available online 17 July 2018Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Mattia Albiero, Gian Paolo FadiniAbstractDiabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by hyperglycemia and several associated biochemical abnormalities. Diabetes leads to multiorgan complications that collectively reduce life expectancy. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are nested within bone marrow (BM) niches whence they can be mobilized to the peripheral circulation. Clinically, this is done for HSC collection and autologous or allogenic transplantation. A great amount of data from basic and clinical studies support that di...

Besides, various literatures reported that IDMT is a synthetic ligand of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPARγ). Rosiglitazone (RSG), an insulin-sensitizer, is also a sy...

In this study, the antidiabetic properties of the dichloromethane (DCM) fraction of C. volubile leaves were investigated in vitro. Its cytotoxic effect and mechanism of toxicity were also investigated in Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK293) cells. The fraction was subjected to in vitro antioxidant assays using the 2,2′-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) scavenging and Ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) protocols. Its enzyme-inhibitory properties were investigated on α-glucosidase and α-amylase activities. Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (GCMS) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic analys...

In this study, we determined the frequencies and function of MDSCs in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice and SS patients. The NOD mice were adoptively transferred with MDSCs or treated with anti-Gr1 antibody. Results showed that peripheral MDSCs increased significantly with the development of SS-like syndrome in NOD mice and the percentage of MDSCs was higher in SS patients than healthy controls. The SS-like syndrome aggravated after transfer of MDSCs in NOD mice. The deletion of MDSCs in NOD mice alleviated SS-like syndrome. Mechanistically, MDSCs down-regulated the percentages of Th2 cells in NOD mice and SS patients. In summ...

Humanin, a 24-amino acid mitochondria-derived polypeptide, has displayed its cytoprotective effects in diverse cell types and tissues. In the current study, we aimed to characterize the effects of humanin on high glucose-induced endothelial dysfunction....

BOSTON (CBS) — The number of women who suffer from a heart attack while pregnant or soon after giving birth is on the rise. In fact, according to researchers at the NYU School of Medicine, the risk has gone up by 25-percent between 2002 to 2014. The overall risk of having a heart attack while pregnant is still very low, but after looking at more than 49-million births, researchers found that risk continues to climb. The cause is not completely clear but researchers believe several factors may contribute. Women are having children when they’re older. More women of reproductive age are obese. More have diabetes. ...

Wu, Kerry-Anne Rye, Kwok Leung OngAbstractThe association between fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) and kidney function has been extensively studied in recent years in both animal and human studies. However, the exact functional role of FGF21 in the kidney remains unclear. Previous animal studies have shown that administration of FGF21 ameliorates kidney function, morphological glomerular abnormalities, dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, oxidative stress and obesity. In human stud...

However, information regarding the role of asprosin in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) remains unavailable. Via conducting a hospital-based study, we purposed to ascertain the potential relationship between circulating asprosin concentrations and T2DM.MethodsThe study recruited 84 adults with T2DM and 86 controls wi...
