43. An infant with combination gene mutations for Monogenic Diabetes of Youth (MODY) 2 and 4, presenting with Diabetes Mellitus Requiring Insulin (DMRI) at 8 months of age.
Match Strength: 4.958

Monogenic Diabetes of Youth (MODY) is an autosomal dominant form of diabetes. [Fajans SS, et al. NEJM 2001: 345: 971-980.] There are at least six different types of MODY, all of which involve a loss of function gene mutation that results in diminished insulin production. MODY2 results from a mutation in the glucokinase gene (GCK), which decreases enzyme activity. MODY4 results from a mutation in the insulin promoter factor-1 (IPF-1) gene, a transcription factor which regulates the transcription of insulin. [Sperling M, et al. NEJM 2006: 355: 507-510.] TJ presented at 8 months of age with ... Read More »

45. Effects of a vitamin D(3) analog on diabetes in the bio breeding (BB) rat.
Match Strength: 4.941

Non-hypercalcemic analogs of vitamin D(3) modulate the immune response through antigen-presenting cells (APCs) and activated T-cells. A large population-base case-control showed that vitamin D(3) intake significantly decreases the risk of type 1 diabetes development. The aim of this study was, therefore, to observe the in vivo effects of a vitamin D(3) analog administered to Bio Breeding (BB) rats. 1,25-Dihydroxy-16,23Z-diene-26,27-hexafluoro-19-nor vitamin D(3) (BXL-219, formerly Ro 26-2198) (BioXell, Milan, Italy) was administered in vivo to BB rats from days 42 to 110 of life at 0.2 microg ... Read More »

46. Non-genomic transgenerational inheritance of disease risk.
Match Strength: 4.922

That there is a heritable or familial component of susceptibility to chronic non-communicable diseases such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease is well established, but there is increasing evidence that some elements of such heritability are transmitted non-genomically and that the processes whereby environmental influences act during early development to shape disease risk in later life can have effects beyond a single generation. Such heritability may operate through epigenetic mechanisms involving regulation of either imprinted or non-imprinted genes but also through ... Read More »

50. Impaired glucose homeostasis in renal transplant recipients receiving basiliximab.
Match Strength: 4.885

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of new onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is multifactorial. Suppression of regulatory T lymphocytes may have a negative impact on pancreatic beta-cells. Induction with basiliximab affects regulatory T-cell function and may therefore, theoretically, also affect glucose homeostasis in renal transplant recipients. METHODS: All kidney recipients > or =50 years of age without diabetes mellitus transplanted from 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2007 were included in a single-centre retrospective study. Immunosuppression consisted of steroids, mycophenolate ... Read More »
