BACKGROUND Oral administration of autoantigens can slow the progression of beta-cell destruction in non-obese diabetic mice. We investigated whether oral administration of recombinant human insulin could protect residual beta-cell function in recent-onset type 1 diabetes. METHODS We enrolled 131 autoantibody-positive diabetic patients aged 7-40 years(More)
Study of the blink reflex and stimulodetection of the facial nerve in 21 diabetics with chronic hyperglycemia (HbA1C: 12.17 +/- 2.34%) shows normal or slightly prolonged R1, R2 and M latent periods in most cases. Forty-eight hour metabolic correction by artificial pancreas produces an overall improvement in the latent periods of the blink reflex, while the(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypertension in diabetes is characterized by abnormal sodium homeostasis, suggesting a particular role of natriuretic peptide pathway. Natriuretic peptides can affect blood pressure (BP) through their plasma concentrations, which are dependent on their receptor activities. We thus assessed the association between nine NPR3 gene polymorphisms and(More)
OBJECTIVE Epidemiological studies and randomized clinical trials have demonstrated in various populations that resting heart rate (RHR) was an independent predictor of cardiovascular (CV) risk and all-cause mortality. However, few data specifically evaluated the relationship between RHR and long-term CV and renal complications in a large population of type(More)
Translational research plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between fundamental and clinical research. The importance of integrating research training into medical education has been emphasized. Predictive factors that help to identify the most motivated medical students to perform academic research are unknown. In a cross-sectional study on a(More)
Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the main cause of visual loss associated with diabetes but any association between DME and cardiovascular events is unclear.This study aims to describe the possible association between DME and cardiovascular events in a multicenter cross-sectional study of patients with type 2 diabetes.Two thousand eight hundred seven(More)
Twenty-one diabetic subjects were studied; all manifested fasting hyperglycemia and elevated Hb A1C. Motor conduction velocity of the median, ulnar and peroneal nerves; F wave of the peroneal nerve; sensory conduction velocity and sensory potential amplitude of the median and ulnar nerves and H reflex were determinated immediately before and after two days(More)
