Patients with congenital generalized lipodystrophy are extremely insulin resistant. To ascertain whether this resistance is due to an insulin receptor defect, we tested four young patients with congenital generalized lipodystrophy and seven healthy persons of comparable age for the binding of 125I insulin to mononuclear leukocytes isolated from peripheral(More)
Fat cell size and lipid composition of subcutaneous tissue from 3 patients with congenital generalized lipodystrophy have been measured before and after treatment with either pimozide, fenfluramine or hypophysectomy. The fat cell volume before treatment ranged between 9.8 x 10(4) and 17.7 x 10(4) micron 3, compared to 9.0 x 10(4) and 85.3 x 10(4) micron 3(More)
This double-blind placebo-crossover study examined the effect of nedocromil sodium, 4 mg aerosol 30 min before challenge, on exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in cold air conditions. Twenty-one asthmatic patients (15-28 years), with methacholine PC20 < or = 8 mg/ml in the absence of significant allergen exposure, were randomized to active and(More)
