The objective of this study was to determine the neonatal and maternal outcomes of pregnancies in SLE patients compared to pregnancies in healthy controls. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study in a tertiary care hospital in Oman between January 2007 and December 2013. We analyzed 147 pregnancies and compared 56 (38.0%) pregnancies in women with SLE with 91 (61.9%) pregnancies in healthy control women. Disease activity was determined using the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI). Results: The mean age of the cohort was 30.0±5.0 years ranging from 19 to 44 years old. Pati...

Publication date: May 2018 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 101 Author(s): Pin-Chun Chao, Yingxiao Li, Chin-Hong Chang, Ja Ping Shieh, Juei-Tang Cheng, Kai-Chun Cheng Animal models are widely used to develop drugs for treating diabetes mellitus (DM). Insulin resistance (IR) is one of the main problems in type-2 DM (T2DM). Streptozotocin (STZ) is used to damage pancreatic cells for induction of DM. Many rat models were applied in research as T2DM. However, the degree of IR in each model is unknown. In the present study, IR and insulin signaling were compared in four models of type 2 diabetes: rats fed a fru...
