Abstract Objective: Autoimmune conditions tend to cluster in subjects with Addison's disease (AD) and probably also among their relatives. The aim of the study was to estimate the frequency of the endocrine gland-specific autoantibodies in first-degree relatives of patients with AD. Methods: Autoantibodies were investigated in 113 family members using RIA and ELISA assays. The control group comprised 143 age-matched volunteers. Results: Autoimmune diseases were diagnosed in 38.1% relatives. Hashimoto's thyroiditis was found in 20.3%, Graves' disease in 8.0%, vitiligo and type 1 diabetes in 3.5%, whereas ...

Abstract The extract of Lycium bark (LBE), which is the root bark of Lycium chinense, has long been used in China for hypertension, inflammation, and diabetes. LBE has been reported to ameliorate hyperglycemia in mice with alloxan-induced type 1 diabetes, but evidence on the effect of LBE in diabetes had not been enough. Therefore, we investigated the effects of LBE on type 2 diabetes using db/db mice. Nine-week-old male db/db mice were orally administered LBE (425 mg/kg) for 10 weeks. Blood samples were collected under anesthesia for the determination of blood glucose and insulin levels. The blood glucose ...
