High density lipoprotein (HDL) kinetics were studied by injecting [3H]apoprotein A-I (apoA-I)/HDL into 12 subjects with normal glucose tolerance and 12 patients with noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The results indicate that the mean fractional catabolic rate (FCR) of apoA-I/HDL was significantly faster [0.63 +/- 0.07 (+/- SEM) vs. 0.39 +/-(More)
During a survey period of 28 years a total of 449 patients suffering respectively from pemphigus, systemic lupus erythematous and chronic nephritis was admitted to the hospital. Of the 286 patients who received glucocorticoid treatment 28 were found to have steroid diabetes (9.8%). The incidences of steroid diabetes in these diseases were as follows:(More)
The effect of alloxan-induced insulin deficiency on high density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism was studied in rabbits. Rabbits with alloxan-induced diabetes had significantly higher (P less than 0.001, mean +/- SEM) plasma concentrations of glucose (541 +/- 13 vs. 130 +/- 2 mg/dl), triglyceride (2851 +/- 332 vs. 101 +/- 10 mg/dl), and total plasma(More)
This study enrolled 36 newly-diagnosed patients with NIDDM, who were divided into two groups, the glibenclamide group and the glipizide group. In each group there were 18 cases, and both group were equal in average age and duration, steam bread tolerance test, GHbA1 and 6 hematological targets were made in both groups before and after administration with(More)
These studies have been carried out in rabbits with alloxan-induced diabetes in order to see if insulin deficiency affects low density lipoprotein (LDL) catabolism. The results showed that plasma LDL-cholesterol was lower in diabetic rabbits, associated with a fall in the cholesterol to protein ratio of LDL particles. In addition, 125I-LDL disappeared more(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the short- and medium-term effectivenesses of stemless hip arthroplasty for treating hip joint disease in young and middle-aged patients. METHODS Between June 2005 and December 2010, 25 cases (27 hips) of hip joint disease were treated with stemless hip arthroplasty. There were 17 males (19 hips) and 8 females (8 hips) with an(More)
By use of histomorphometry and photon and physical, calcium homeostasis, bone morphology, bone mass and bone growth were studied in freely fed control, streptozotocin-induced diabetic, long-term and short-term insulin treated diabetic rats 14 weeks after the induction of diabetes. We conclude that untreated chronic streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat could(More)
