Menon, Herbert Mössler, Hari Shanker SharmaAbstractThere is a growing trend of hypertension among military and civilian populations due to lifetime stressful situations. If hypertension is uncontrolled it leads to development of diabetes and serious neurological complications. Most of the World populations live in temperate zone across the World. Thus, a possibility exists that these hypertensive and diabetic people may have external heat as potential risk ...

Abstract A significant obstacle to the study of human cancer biology and the testing of human specific immunotherapeutics is the paucity of translational models that recapitulate both the growth of human tumors and the functionality of human immune systems. Humanized mice engrafted with human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and patient-derived xenografts (PDX) enable preclinical investigation of the interactions between the human immune system and human cancer. We use immunodeficient non-obese diabetic (NOD, scid, gamma) NSG™ or NSG™-SGM3 mice as hosts for establishment of human immunity following HSC i...

Authors: Shakhatreh M, Jehangir A, Malik Z, Parkman HP Abstract Introduction: Gastroparesis is a chronic disorder of the stomach characterized by delayed gastric emptying without mechanical obstruction. Diabetes is the most commonly known cause of gastroparesis. Management of diabetic gastroparesis involves lifestyle modifications, glycemic control, pharmacological drugs, and for refractory cases surgical treatments. Metoclopramide remains the only drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration for diabetic gastroparesis. The aim of this article is to provide a concise review of the pharmacology, clinical effica...

This study sought to identify complications in rTKA that were independently associated with NIDDM/IDDM compared to non-diabetic (Non-DM) patients and whether IDDM was associated with specific postoperative complications compared to NIDDM.Methods and materials16,428 rTKA patients were identified from the ACS-NSQIP database from 2005 to 2016 and stratified into three separate cohorts. 12,922 (78.66%) were Non-DM, 2335 (14.21%) had NIDDM, and 1171 (7.13%) had IDDM. Univariate analyses were utilized to assess for differences in demographics, preoperative comorbidities, and postoperative complication rates. Multivariate logisti...

Know Labs is entering the world of diabetes management and monitoring with its wearable UBAND non-invasive Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM). The Seattle-based company said strong pre-clinical results were causing it to focus more on the development of the technology. In fact, results were so overwhelming that Know Labs decided to curtail plans for its previously announced calorie counter product for the consumer market, to work on the CGM. In a release, Phil Bosua, Know Labs CEO said, “We initially believed our first product would be a wearable calorie counter for the consumer market. At this point we hav...

Abstract Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) can impair healing of diabetic foot (DF) in patients with diabetes mellitus. To determine whether carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) can predict lower limb arterial lesions in patients with DF, this cross-sectional study enrolled patients with DF at West China Hospital (China) between January 2012 and December 2015. Ultrasonography was used to measure CIMT, assess the internal carotid arteries (ICA) for plaques, and evaluate lower limb segmental arteries for stenosis. The optimal CIMT cutoff for detecting lower limb PAD was determined by receiver operating characterist...
