This multicenter, 26-week, randomized trial compared the addition of exenatide or insulin glargine to regimens of 551 patients with suboptimally controlled type 2 diabetes, and found both additions led to similar reductions in hemoglobin A1c levels.
Expression of a Mutant Form of the Ferritin Light Chain Gene Induces Neurodegeneration and Iron Overload in Transgenic Mice
It is reported that the expression in transgenic mice of a human FTL cDNA carrying a thymidine and cytidine insertion at position 498 leads to the formation of nuclear and cytoplasmic ferritin inclusion bodies, which are seen in glia and neurons throughout the CNS as well as in cells of other organ systems.

Comparison of effect of pioglitazone with metformin or sulfonylurea (monotherapy and combination therapy) on postload glycemia and composite insulin sensitivity index during an oral glucose tolerance…
Pioglitazone improves postload glycemia and CISI more than metformin or gliclazide when used as monotherapy or in combination therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Pioglitazone elicits long-term improvements in insulin sensitivity in patients with type 2 diabetes: comparisons with gliclazide-based regimens
The PIO- based regimens resulted in improved insulin sensitivity and more favourable insulin sensitivity-related lipid profiles compared with the GLIC-based regimens and may be important in the management of cardiovascular risk in patients with type 2 diabetes.

The use of checksums to ensure data integrity in the healthcare industry
This paper will provide some background on the use of checksums and concentrate on a particular example using lab instrument data, which can be used to verify whether or not a file has been altered.
Adding New Rows in the ADaM Basic Data Structure: When and How
This HOW uses a Vital Signs example, demonstrating the common BDS dataset need of adding analysis parameters and visits, and will start with a general specification and mock-up to create metadata content that can be used for both detailed specification and within a define document.
