Loss of imprinting (LOI) of the IGF2 gene (which encodes insulin-like growth factor II) is the most common genetic or epigenetic alteration in Wilms tumor; LOI involves aberrant activation of the… Expand
Use of Health Services by Diabetic Persons. II. Hospital Admissions
Over a 10-mo period, a computerized admission discharge system was scrutinized to identify all persons with diabetes mellitus admitted to a general hospital in Christchurch, North Canterbury… Expand
Self‐reported Changes in Capillary Glucose and Insulin Requirements During the Menstrual Cycle
Perimenstrual changes in glycaemic control and insulin requirements have been reported in Type 1 diabetes. A population‐based sample of 124 women with Type 1 diabetes, aged 18 to 40 years, were… Expand

- Diabetes research and clinical practice
- 1 April 1998
This study aimed to explore multiple determinants of BMD (bone mineral density) in 99 women with long-standing type 1 diabetes, recruited from a population based register of insulin users. BMD was… Expand
Single-Stranded Conformational Polymorphism Analysis of the Mitochondria! Glycerol Phosphate Dehydrogenase Gene in NIDDM
Because the activity of mitochondrial glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase (mGPD) in the pancreatic β-cell is normally among the highest of the body, but is low in the pancreatic islets of numerous… Expand

Abstract A simple and effective technique for accurate identification and localization of extreme lateral disc herniation is presented.
Genetic mapping and chromosome localization of the rat mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase gene, a candidate for non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
The mitochondrial FAD-dependent glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (mtGPD) plays an important role in the regulation of insulin secretion and has been postulated as a candidate responsible for the… Expand
Effects of Estrogen Status and Aging on Salivary Flow Rates in Healthy Caucasian Women
A comparison of salivary flow rates was made between three groups of female individuals according to their menopausal status. The three groups consisted of healthy, dentate, nonmedicated women (with… Expand
Prevalence and Incidence of Insulin‐treated Diabetes Mellitus in Adults in Canterbury, New Zealand
A population‐based diabetes register showed a prevalence of insulin‐treated diabetes mellitus (n = 1148) in Canterbury, New Zealand, of 3.3 per 1000 population at 1 January 1984. Median age was 52… Expand
Islet cell antibodies and antibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase in newly diagnosed adult-onset diabetes mellitus.
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of antibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase (anti-GAD) and islet cell antibodies (ICA) in relation to beta-cell function in adults newly-diagnosed… Expand
