Mortality and morbidity were examined in 117 laboratory-maintained rhesus monkeys studied over approximately 25 years (8 dietary-restricted [DR] and 109 ad libitum-fed [AL] monkeys). During the study, 49 AL monkeys and 3 DR monkeys died. Compared with the DR monkeys, the AL monkeys had a 2.6-fold increased risk of death. Hyperinsulinemia led to a 3.7-fold(More)
Diabetic neuropathy (DN) is a common severe complication of type 2 diabetes. The symptoms of chronic pain, tingling, and numbness are generally attributed to small fiber dysfunction. However, little is known about the pathology among innervation to distal extremities, where symptoms start earliest and are most severe, and where the innervation density is(More)
Thiazolidinediones (TZD) have been shown to have anti-diabetic effects including the ability to decrease fasting hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia, increase insulin-mediated glucose disposal rate (M) and decrease hepatic glucose production, but the mechanisms of action are not well established. To determine whether a TZD (R-102380, Sankyo Company Ltd.,(More)
I N rodents and many other species, dietary restriction (DR), also known as calorie restriction, has been shown to prevent and/or delay the onset of many age-related diseases, and maintain healthy physiological function during the aging process. Although Lane and colleagues agree that our published report (1) provides a preliminary interesting assessment of(More)
Zopiclone, a cyclopyrrolone derivative, was compared with triazolam in a double-blind, randomized, parallel group study in general practice patients suffering from insomnia. Both drugs were found to be effective compared to baseline assessment in that they increased the number of hours of sleep, reduced the number of nocturnal wakenings and reduced the(More)
The effects of macronutrients on appetite and total caloric intake in monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was studied using a new feeding and infusion system which yoked intragastric infusion of various nutrients to oral ad lib intake and removed the confounding factor of palatability from the assessment of nutrient effects on feeding behavior. A suction-activated(More)
