Antibodies in sera from newly diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patients are directed to a human islet cell protein of relative molecular mass (Mr) 64,000. Since IDDM seems to develop after a prodromal period of beta-cell autoimmunity, this study has examined whether 64,000 Mr antibodies could be detected in 14 individuals who(More)
This article describes the applicability of multivariate projection techniques, such as principal-component analysis (PCA) and partial least-squares (PLS) projections to latent structures, to the large-volume high-density data structures obtained within genomics, proteomics, and metabonomics. PCA and PLS, and their extensions, derive their usefulness from(More)
Three families with infants affected with campomelic dysplasia, a genetically determined mesenchymal disease frequently associated with sex reversal were studied. Two XY famales with ovarian gonadal differentiation and typical clinical features of campomelic dysplasia could be tested for H-Y antigen and were found to be H-Y negative.
The aim was to investigate triggering factors and insulin pump usage (continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion, CSII) at diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Data from 1999 and 2000 were collected retrospectively from Sweden. In 1999 and 2000, 7.4 and 11.0%, respectively, of children with diabetes used CSII. One hundred and forty-two episodes of DKA (pH < 7.30)(More)
Based on the recent demonstration of elevated serum proinsulin levels in cystic fibrosis patients with impaired glucose tolerance, it was hypothesized that proinsulin could be an indicator of altered beta-cell function. We therefore analyzed fasting proinsulin levels in 99 siblings of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patients, most of them(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined the effect of diazoxide, an ATP-sensitive K(+) channel opener and inhibitor of insulin secretion, on beta-cell function and remission in children at clinical onset of type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 56 subjects (21 girls and 35 boys, age 7-17 years) were randomized to 3 months of active treatment (diazoxide(More)
We consider a semilinear parabolic PDE driven by additive noise. The equation is discretized in space by a standard piecewise linear finite element method. We show that the orthogonal expansion of the finite-dimensional Wiener process, that appears in the discretized problem, can be truncated severely without losing the asymptotic order of the method,(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and cerebral oedema in the Swedish paediatric diabetes population, and to measure laboratory parameters during treatment. METHODS The Swedish National Paediatric Diabetes Registry (SWEDIABKIDS) indicates that 16% of patients < 18 years during 2000 to 2004 had DKA at onset of(More)
Glucose-induced insulin response and insulin sensitivity were studied in 32 HLA-identical, 38 haplo-identical and 24 non-identical, islet-cell-antibody-negative, healthy siblings of young Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients (age range 10–28 years). No significant differences were obtained between HLA-identical, HLA-haplo-identical siblings and(More)
