Dysfunction of the vascular endothelium is commonly observed in Type 2 diabetes, and endothelial function may be an important outcome for clinical trials in diabetic samples. However, the most commonly used non-invasive test of endothelial function (flow-mediated dilation [FMD]) is technically challenging to perform, and no previous studies have carefully(More)
We examined the acute postprandial effects of meals containing unsaturated fatty acids on flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery and triacylglycerols in individuals with type 2 diabetes. We hypothesised that consumption of omega-3 fatty acids would enhance vascular function. Saturated fat reduces FMD for several hours, but there is inconsistent(More)
HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS A 27-year-old woman presented with chronic diffuse bone pain and skeletal deformities. Since the age of 3 years she had occipital hyperostosis. Since aged 13 years she had symptoms indicating spinal root involvement due to hyperkyphosis. For the last 6 years there was evidence of destructive and hyperplastic changes in the(More)
BACKGROUND o,p'-DDD (1-dichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)-ethane), which leads to a cytotoxic necrosis of the adrenal glands, currently is therapy of choice for metastasized adrenocortical carcinomas. Clinical experience is still poor, but most studies demonstrate an increment of survival time in patients treated with o,p'-DDD after incomplete(More)
We explore the behaviour of nitrogen doping in carbon nanomaterials, notably graphene, nanotubes, and carbon thin films. This is initially via a brief review of the literature, followed by a series of atomistic density functional calculations. We show that at low concentrations, substitutional nitrogen doping in the sp(2)-C graphenic basal plane is(More)
Tissue Oxygenation in Severe Diabetic Ketoacidosis. K.G.M.M. Alberti, J . Darley, Pauline M. Emerson and T. D.R. Hockaday. Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford. Tissue oxygenation has not been studied in diabetic coma, yet may be an impor tant factor in recovery. In 51 subjects in diabetic ketotic coma we have determined [lactate]/ [pyruvate] (L/P) and(More)
