PURPOSE Retrospective, case-control studies and prospective randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on insulin treatment for diabetic patients yielded contradictory mortality and cardiovascular outcomes. We aimed to evaluate the effects of insulin versus oral hypoglycemic agents (OHAs) on all-cause mortality and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2(More)
We assessed the plasma acyl ghrelin (AG), unacyl ghrelin (UAG), and total ghrelin (TGhr) levels in Chinese adults with pre-diabetes and newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus (NDDM) after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), and abdominal subcutaneous fat area and visceral fat area (VFA) were measured. Fasting AG level was increased in the impaired fasting(More)
BACKGROUND Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) benefit weight maintenance for diabetic patients. We performed a systematic review to evaluate its weight loss effect on obese/overweight patients without diabetes in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). METHODS Literature updated to May 5, 2014 from Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE and(More)
The associations between the Arg399Gln polymorphism in X-ray repair cross-complementing gene 1 (XRCC1) gene and the risk of hematological malignancies have been extensively investigated. However, the results were inconsistent. The objective of the current study is to investigate the association by meta-analysis. We searched PubMed database, Embase database,(More)
The association between the Arg194Trp polymorphism in the XRCC1 gene and the risk of hematological malignancies has been extensively investigated. However, the results were inconsistent. The objective of the current study is to investigate the association by meta-analysis. We searched the PubMed, Embase, CNKI, Wanfang, and Weipu databases, covering all(More)
OBJECTIVE Abdominal visceral (VAT) and subcutaneous (SAT) adipose tissues contribute to obesity, but may have different cardiometabolic risk profiles. We examined and compared the associations of abdominal VAT and SAT with metabolic risk factors in a large cohort of Chinese adults. METHODS This study was based on cross-sectional analysis of data from 1449(More)
AIMS Polymorphism of rs2016520 in gene PPARD has been associated with lipid metabolism, obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We aimed to study the association of rs2016520 with common metabolic traits in a large population of Han Chinese adults. METHODS The polymorphism was genotyped in 1409 subjects using Matrix-Assisted Laser(More)
OBJECTIVES We aim to conduct a meta-analysis, by stratifying diabetic patients with or without clinical cardiovascular diseases (CVD), to explore whether there are different cardiovascular effects of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4is) on these two different classes of diabetic patients. METHODS We searchedMedline,Embase, theCochrane Libraryand(More)
