It is concluded that the postprandial uptake of fatty acids by liver and skeletal muscle is increased in type 2 diabetes and may underlie the elevated tissue triglyceride stores and consequent insulin resistance.
Characterisation of ACTH peptides in human skin and their activation of the melanocortin-1 receptor.
It would appear that ACTH peptides can serve as natural ligands of the MC-1 receptor on human melanocytes and their presence in the skin suggests that, together with alpha-MSH, they may have a role in the regulation of human melanocyte regulation.
Osteomalacia in patients with chronic renal failure before dialysis or transplantation.
Osteomalacia has different manifestations, and probably different causes, before and after the start of haemodialysis, and these two stages of renal failure should be clearly distinguished in reports of renal bone disease.

PRO‐OPIOCORTIN RELATED PEPTIDES IN HUMAN PITUITARY AND ECTOPIC ACTH SECRETING TUMOURS
Although peptide release in response to stimulation with SME was similar to that observed with the other pituitary tumours, the chromatography of the plasma ACTH resembled the ectopic plasma pattern, showing two peaks of immunoreactivity.

Assessment of vitamin D status in male osteoporosis.
The ratio of total 25OHD3 and 1,25(OH)2D3 to plasma DBP, rather than total circulating vitamin D metabolites, may provide a more useful index of biological activity.
