BACKGROUND Oxidative stress is involved in development of diabetes complications. Extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD, SOD3) is a major extracellular antioxidant enzyme and is highly expressed in arterial walls. Advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP) and 8-iso-prostaglandin (isoprostane) are markers of oxidative stress. We investigated(More)
OBJECTIVE — We tested whether determination of the ACE insertion/deletion polymor-phism is useful for renal and cardiovascular prognoses of type 2 diabetic subjects.vascular Events, and Ramipril (DIABHYCAR) trial were studied for their prognosis over 4 years according to their ACE insertion/deletion polymorphism. We used two cohorts of French type 2(More)
To increase our understanding of the genetic basis of adiposity and its links to cardiometabolic disease risk, we conducted a genome-wide association meta-analysis of body fat percentage (BF%) in up to 100,716 individuals. Twelve loci reached genome-wide significance (P<5 × 10(-8)), of which eight were previously associated with increased overall adiposity(More)
OBJECTIVE Plasma copeptin, a surrogate for vasopressin, was associated with albuminuria in population-based studies. These associations are consistent with the effect of vasopressin on albuminuria observed in humans and rodents. The objective of this study was to determine whether plasma copeptin is an independent marker of risk of renal events in people(More)
AIMS Oxidative stress is involved in the pathophysiology of diabetic nephropathy. Manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD2) catalyses the dismutation of superoxide, regulates the metabolism of reactive oxygen species in the mitochondria and is highly expressed in the kidney. Plasma concentration of advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), a marker of(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine longitudinal associations between antidepressant medication use and the metabolic syndrome (MetS). METHODS 5014 participants (49.8% were men) from the D.E.S.I.R. cohort study, aged 30-65 years at baseline in 1994-1996, were followed over 9 years at 3-yearly intervals (1997-1999, 2000-2002, and 2003-2005). Antidepressant use and MetS,(More)
W e read with great interest the article by Park et al. (1) in Diabetes Care. The results they report in middle-aged Korean men are very similar to ours published in 2007 in Diabetes Care for both sexes from the DESIR (Data from an Epidemiological Study on the Insulin Resistance Syndrome) prospective study in a Caucasian population (2). In our article, we(More)
