OBJECTIVE To demonstrate that intravenous administration of AC137 (25,28,29 tripro-human amylin), a human amylin analogue, modulates the rate of appearance of glucose derived from a standard oral meal in the peripheral circulation of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS After the observation that a 2-h(More)
To explore further the effects of the human amylin analog pramlintide on overall glycemic control and postprandial responses of circulating glucose, glucagon, and metabolic intermediates in type 1 diabetes mellitus, 14 male type 1 diabetic patients were examined in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. Pramlintide (30 microg four times daily)(More)
Amylin is a peptide hormone which is deficient in patients with Type 1 and late stage Type 2 diabetes. Evidence from studies in rats and humans has suggested that it is involved in glucose homeostasis by modulating gastric emptying and, possibly, by regulating the release of glucagon. These observations have led to the suggestion that amylin may be used(More)
Amylin has been reported to decrease glycogen storage in rodent skeletal muscles and produce insulin resistance in intact rats. To test the acute effect of a human amylin analog (AC137) on glucose metabolism in man, seven IDDM patients were infused in a randomized, double blind, cross-over study with AC137 (100 micrograms/h, n = 1; 50 micrograms/h, n = 6)(More)
