1. Greater development of 1,2-dimethylhydrazine-induced colon cancer in a rat model of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Match Strength: 12.556
Several clinical cohort and case-control studies have suggested a link between diabetes and colon cancer. Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fat (OLETF) rats spontaneously develop type 2 diabetes mellitus and Long-Evans Tokushima Otsuka (LETO) rats are non-diabetic. The relationship between type 2 diabetes mellitus and colon cancer was examined in these rats. The carcinogen 1,2-dimethylhydrazine was administered subcutaneously once weekly for 10 weeks, and the animals were killed and necropsied in week 29. All OLETF rats and 80% of the LETO rats developed cancer. The number of colon cancers per rat ... Read More »

3. Clinical characteristics and diabetes associated autoantibodies in patients with both type 1 diabetes mellitus and asthma.
Match Strength: 10.853
OBJECTIVE: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) and asthma are mediated by opposite arms of the cellular immune system, namely T helper (Th)1 and Th2 CD4+ cells, respectively. It is not known whether their coexistence affects their clinical manifestations. METHODS: The number of asthma exacerbations, frequency of hypoglycemic events, HbA1c levels, diabetes associated autoantibody status and diabetes associated late complications were determined in three paired groups of patients (n = 11) matched by gender and age: DM1 and asthma, asthma only, and DM1 only. RESULTS: Patients with both diseases had a ... Read More »

4. Cardiovascular risk in the spectrum of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Match Strength: 10.802
The clinical importance of the metabolic syndrome is that this group of risk factors greatly increases the likelihood of cardiovascular events, the major source of disease morbidity and mortality in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Recent studies have helped clarify the mechanisms underlying the vascular dysfunction that leads to cardiovascular outcomes in diabetes. This vascular dysfunction is correlated with visceral adiposity, insulin resistance and alterations in the levels of a variety of circulating factors. The vascular effects of overt hyperglycemia also play an important ... Read More »

5. Low-density lipoproteins are more electronegatively charged in type 1 than in type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Match Strength: 10.037
Multifactorial etiology is involved in premature atherosclerosis related to diabetes. Most of the mechanisms that are responsible for the etiology in diabetes have remained unsolved so far. Type 1 diabetes is associated with a favorable lipid pattern and with microangiopathy, which is not true for type 2 diabetes, which is related to dyslipidemia and macroangiopathy. The aim of this work was to evaluate the degree of LDL modification related to the types of diabetes. The question is whether the LDL could be differently modified since the pathogenesis of type 1 and type 2 diabetes is different. ... Read More »

8. Type 1 diabetes mellitus associated with nephrotic syndrome.
Match Strength: 9.542
Nephrotic syndrome (NS) in a patient with diabetes mellitus (DM) first suggests the diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy. However, glomerular diseases other than diabetic nephropathy have been reported in patients with DM. We present a child with type 1 DM (DM1) associated with NS. A 3 year-old boy who was diagnosed with DM1 developed proteinuria in nephrotic range at the 10th month of follow-up. He had remission on steroid treatment without any problem in glycemic control as he was given tapered daily doses instead of an alternate day regimen. He relapsed at the 7th month of follow-up, and ... Read More »

9. NFkappaB and its inhibitor IkappaB in relation to type 2 diabetes and its microvascular and atherosclerotic complications.
Match Strength: 9.364
Nuclear factor kappa B (NFkappaB) is an important transcription factor that together with its inhibitor (IkappaB) participates in the activation of genes involved in immune responses. We examined the CA repeat polymorphism of the NFKB1 gene (encoding for NFkappaB) and A/G point variation in the 3'UTR region of the nuclear factor kappa B inhibitor alpha (NFKBIA) gene (encoding for IkappaB) in Czech and German patients with type 2 diabetes. The sample consisted of 211 patients, both with and without kidney complications, and 159 controls. Additionally, 152 patients with systemic lupus ... Read More »

10. The role of Hemochromatosis C282Y and H63D mutations in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Greece.
Match Strength: 8.439
Several authors have suggested a positive association between diabetes type 2 (DM2) and the C282Y and H63D mutations of the hereditary hemochromatosis gene but others have disputed it. There are also papers reporting an increased iron load in diabetes type 2 and a possible association with the pathogenesis of the disease. We therefore performed a study in 100 type 2 diabetics and 100 age and sex matched controls to assess the possibility that C282Y and H63D mutations constitute a risk factor for DM2 in Greece. We also evaluated the iron load in 500 diabetes type 2 patients and 423 age and sex ... Read More »

15. Metabolic decompensation in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus associated with increased serum levels of the soluble leptin receptor.
Match Strength: 7.123
OBJECTIVE: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) leads to increased serum levels of the soluble leptin receptor (sOB-R) by an as yet unknown cellular mechanism. The aim of our study was to investigate potential metabolic factors that may be associated with the induction of the sOB-R release from its membrane receptor. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-five children (aged between 1.5 and 17.0 years) were studied at the onset of T1DM. Blood samples were collected before (n = 25), during the first 18 h (mean +/- S.D. 11.1 +/- 4.3 h, n = 16) and 92 h (47.5 +/- 22.5 h; n = 14) after beginning insulin therapy ... Read More »

16. The effectiveness of intensive glycemic control for the prevention of vascular complications in diabetes mellitus.
Match Strength: 7.043
Obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus have reached epidemic proportions in the US, and indeed, globally. While microvascular complications contribute to considerable morbidity, much of the excess mortality (around 70%) is due to macrovascular disease. Hyperglycemia has predictable toxic effects on multiple organs ('glucotoxicity') including the pancreas, where it impairs insulin secretion and insulin gene expression through mechanisms that lead to glucose densensitization and beta-cell exhaustion, eventually resulting in irreversible beta-cell failure. There is robust evidence to suggest that ... Read More »

17. Inhibition of NAD(P)H oxidase alleviates impaired NOS-dependent responses of pial arterioles in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Match Strength: 6.791
OBJECTIVE: The goal was to identify the role of NAD(P)H oxidase in cerebrovascular dysfunction in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D). METHODS: In a first series of studies, rats were assigned to nondiabetic, diabetic (streptozotocin; 50 mg/kg IP), nondiabetic-apocynin (40 mg/kg/day in drinking water)-treated and diabetic-apocynin-treated groups. Two to three months later, the authors examined in vivo responses of pial arterioles to nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-dependent (acetylcholine and adenosine diphosphate (ADP)) and -independent (nitroglycerin) agonists. Next, they used Western blot analysis ... Read More »

18. H2O2 increases production of constrictor prostaglandins in smooth muscle leading to enhanced arteriolar tone in Type 2 diabetic mice.
Match Strength: 6.749
Our previous study showed that arteriolar tone is enhanced in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2-DM) due to an increased level of constrictor prostaglandins. We hypothesized that, in mice with T2-DM, hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) is involved in the increased synthesis of constrictor prostaglandins, hence enhanced basal tone in skeletal muscle arterioles. Isolated, pressurized gracilis muscle arterioles ( approximately 100 microm in diameter) of mice with T2-DM (C57BL/KsJ-db(-)/db(-)) exhibited greater basal tone to increases in intraluminal pressure (20-120 mmHg) than that of control vessels (at 80 ...

20. The concurrence of Microalbuminuria and Retinopathy with Cardiovascular Risk Factors; reliable predictors of Asymptomatic Coronary Artery Disease in Type 2 Diabetes.
Match Strength: 6.691
People with diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2) have a greater risk for premature morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular disease than the general population: cardiovascular disease accounts for 75% of deaths in this population group. We examined whether or not the association of clinical cardiovascular risk factors (RF) with both microalbuminuria (MA) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) constitutes reliable evidence for the existence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD), as assessed by positive myocardial thallium scintiscan using the SPECT method (Tl-scan) in patients with DM2. The study ... Read More »
