Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) is a form of non-insulin-dependent (type 2) diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) which is characterized by an early age at onset and an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. Except for these features, the clinical characteristics of patients with MODY are similar to those with the more common late-onset form(s) of NIDDM.(More)
Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), characterised by non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) with an early age of onset, is a genetically heterogeneous disorder. In most MODY kindreds described in France, chronic hyperglycaemia is caused by mutations in the gene encoding pancreatic beta-cell and liver glucokinase (GCK). We here report the(More)
Paraoxonase is a high-density-lipoprotein-associated enzyme capable of hydrolysing lipid peroxides. Thus it might protect lipoproteins from oxidation. It has two isoforms, which arise from a glutamine (A isoform) to arginine (B isoform) interchange at position 192. The relevance of this polymorphism to coronary heart disease (CHD) in non-insulin-dependent(More)
OBJECTIVE The DIABHYCAR (type 2 DIABetes, Hypertension, CArdiovascular Events and Ramipril) study allowed investigators to analyze factors leading to the development of congestive heart failure (CHF) in type 2 diabetic patients with abnormal urinary albumin concentration. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Type 2 diabetic subjects of both sexes aged >or=50 years(More)
A 1.6 mg dose of the specific opiate antagonist naloxone was administered to normal volunteers, either separately or in conjunction with insulin-induce hypoglycemia, in order to study the possible mediation by opioid peptides of the release of adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH), lipotropins (LPH), human growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL).
