BACKGROUND This study compares plasma endothelin-1 (ET-1) levels in patients with diabetes mellitus or hypertension with healthy controls, and investigates whether ET-1 levels are correlated with glycemic control, metabolic parameters, and vascular complications. METHODS The study population consisted of 103 patients with type 1 diabetes, 124 patients(More)
This paper examines design workshops as research practice: how workshops bind time and participation in ways that privilege certain types of action and foreclose others. In five workshops we facilitated, we asked members to design a new item from two existing items in need of repair and studied their acts of appropriation and reuse. Although we hoped to(More)
The endothelium derived peptide endothelin-1 (ET-1) is the major isoform of the endothelin peptide family, which is produced and secreted in the endothelial cell system. We measured plasma levels in patients with thyroid diseases and investigated associations between laboratory and clinical markers of thyroid metabolism and ET-1 plasma levels. ET-1 plasma(More)
A locally accelerated bone turnover is the pathophysiological basis of Paget's disease of bone (PD) and may result in severe bone deformations and pain. Affected bone sites are hypervascularized. Secreted endothelial products such as endothelin-1 (ET-1), influence bone metabolism. We investigated a possible correlation between ET-1 plasma concentrations and(More)
