AIMS Insulin degludec (IDeg) is a new-generation basal insulin with an ultra-long duration of action. We compared the pharmacodynamic (PD) variability of IDeg and insulin glargine (IGlar) under steady-state conditions. METHODS Day-to-day variability in glucose-lowering effect was investigated in 54 subjects with type 1 diabetes who underwent a 24-h(More)
INTRODUCTION A possible link between chronic vascular inflammation and arterial hypertension is now an object of intensive studies. OBJECTIVE To compare Th1/Th2/Th17 cells-related cytokines, circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC), and endothelial function in subjects with resistant arterial hypertension (RAH) and controlled arterial hypertension(More)
We investigated the influence of TSH receptor antibody (TRA), as detected by inhibition of 125I-bTSH binding to detergent solubilized porcine TSH receptors, on in-vitro thyroglobulin (hTg) production using normal thyroid cells in monolayer. Secretion of hTg into the culture medium was analysed by a non-competitive enzyme immunosorbent (ELISA) technique(More)
Human mammary tissue from a female at the end of the second trimester of pregnancy was studied in organ culture in a chemically defined medium. Sampling was carried out at 1, 2 and 3 weeks. Without hormones, there was nearly total lobuloalveolar degeneration inall specimens at all times. Addition of insulin, hydrocortisone and ovine prolactin, in(More)
We examined basal and bTSH-stimulated human thyroglobulin (hTg) secretion by autologous normal and abnormal (benign and malignant) human thyroid cell monolayers. Basal and bTSH-stimulated hTg secretion was highly variable and ranged from 50-700 ng/ml/10(5) cells over a 6 day period. All normal and benign 'non-functioning' adenoma cells demonstrated a dose(More)
INTRODUCTION Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) and complement C3 are involved in the pathophysiology of arterial hypertension. C3a is the negative regulator of progenitor cells egress during their mobilization from bone marrow. Previously, higher plasma concentration of C3 was observed in resistant arterial hypertension (RAH) than in controlled arterial(More)
