OBJECTIVE Fetal malnutrition may predispose to type 2 diabetes through gene programming and developmental changes. Previous studies showed that these effects may be modulated by genetic variation. Genome-wide association studies discovered and replicated a number of type 2 diabetes-associated genes. We investigated the effects of such well-studied(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether SIRT1, a nutrient-sensing histone deacetylase, influences fetal programming during malnutrition. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In 793 individuals of the Dutch Famine Birth Cohort, we analyzed the interaction between three SIRT1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and prenatal exposure to famine on type 2 diabetes risk.

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with a high risk of premature coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD prevention consists of lifestyle changes combined with lifelong statin treatment. Good adherence to statins reduces the risk of events substantially. This study was designed to identify determinants of non-adherence(More)
We performed an extended oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) to investigate the relationship between early and late beta-cell response and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in families of South Asian origin and indigenous Dutch, burdened by T2D. Based on the OGTT, 22 individuals were normoglycemic, 12 glucose intolerant and 23 had T2D in the South Asian families; these(More)
This article presents a new Dutch multicenter study ("PKU-COBESO") into cognitive and behavioral sequelae of early and continuously treated Phenylketonuria (PKU) patients. Part of the study sample will consist of young adult PKU patients who have participated in a large neuropsychological study approximately 10 years ago, when they were 7-to-15-year-olds(More)
OBJECTIVE Early treatment of phenylketonuria (ET-PKU) prevents mental retardation, but many patients still show cognitive and mood problems. In this study, it was investigated whether ET-PKU-patients have specific phenylalanine (Phe-)related problems with respect to social-cognitive functioning and social skills. METHODS Ninety five PKU-patients (mean age(More)
A call from the EU for the set-up of European Reference Networks (ERNs) is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2016. ERNs are intended to improve the care for patients with low prevalent or rare diseases throughout the EU by, among other things, facilitating the pooling and exchange of experience and knowledge and the development of protocols(More)
OBJECTIVE The study investigated the feasibility and potential outcome measures during acute hyperoxia in type 2 diabetes patients (DM2). METHODS Eleven DM2 patients (7 men and 4 women) were included in the study. The patients cycled (30 min at 20% Wmax) whilst breathing three different supplemental oxygen flows (SOF, 5, 10, 15 L min(-1)). During(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the genetic etiology of a distinct leukoencephalopathy with autosomal recessive inheritance in a single family. METHODS We analyzed available MRIs and retrospectively reviewed clinical information and laboratory investigations. We performed whole-exome sequencing to find the causal gene variants. RESULTS We identified 3 family(More)
