Recent genomewide association studies have identified several new gene variants associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) mostly in European populations. These need to be replicated in other populations. We studied 926 unrelated T2D and 812 normal glucose-tolerant subjects randomly selected...
The metabolic syndrome is conceptualized as a clustering of risk factors—including insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, central adiposity, and elevated blood pressure (BP)—that increase the risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Recent evidence suggests that markers of...
Apolipoprotein C-I (apoCI) is implicated in lipid metabolism and inflammatory response, both important risk factors for human heart disease. However, most findings come from in vitro or animal studies, whereas data on human apoCI are sparse. To elucidate the role of apoCI in human disease, we...
Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is associated with abnormal glucose metabolism (AGM). We investigated the effect on glucose metabolism of normalization of the markers of iron overload by phlebotomy in subjects with HH. We prospectively studied 11 newly diagnosed subjects with HH and AGM using a...
Although inflammation has been shown to play an important role in metabolic syndrome (MetS), the association between inflammatory marker gene polymorphisms and the risk of MetS has not been fully elucidated. This study was initiated to investigate the association between functional variants of...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the associations of body mass index (BMI) with insulin resistance and β -cell function in subjects with normal glucose tolerance. A cross-sectional study was carried out in Fujian province by multistratified sampling from July 2007 to May 2008. The sample...
In this study, we examined the effects of switching from acarbose or voglibose to miglitol in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients for 3 months on gene expression of inflammatory cytokines/cytokine-like factors in peripheral leukocytes and on glucose fluctuations. We enrolled 47 Japanese patients...
The CTP:phosphoethanolamine cytidylyltransferase gene ( Pcyt2 ) regulates the synthesis of CDP-ethanolamine, which is combined with diacylglycerol (DAG) to form the membrane phospholipid phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) via the de novo Kennedy pathway. ( 14 C)Ethanolamine and ( 3 H)glycerol...
Statin treatment and exercise training can reduce markers of inflammation when administered separately. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of rosuvastatin treatment and the addition of exercise training on circulating markers of inflammation including C-reactive protein (CRP),...
