IL-15 is a 14-15 kD cytokine produced by monocytes/macrophages and shares some biological actions with IL-2. The serum concentration of IL-15 in type 1 diabetic patients has not been reported seriously. Our studies were performed on 51 patients (28 women and 23 men) with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Healthy control subjects (n=22, 12 women and 10 men, mean age(More)
The hypoglycaemic effects of two quinolizidine alkaloids: lupanine and 2-thionosparteine were examined in non-diabetic and in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The model of experimental diabetes can be considered to be related to diabetes mellitus type 2 with regards to the impairment of beta-cells' secretory function. A single intraperitoneal injection(More)
In recent years a great deal of discussion has focused on postprandial hyperglycaemia as a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. Routinely used parameters of metabolic control such as fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and HbA1c are not useful for determination of daily glucose excursions. 1,5-Anhydro-D-glucitol (1,5-AG) in human plasma has been proposed for(More)
OBJECTIVE Hyperproinsulinemia in type 2 diabetic subjects has recently been accepted as an independent cardiovascular risk factor. Moreover, it has been confirmed that high proinsulin concentrations stimulate amylin secretion by pancreatic beta-cells and amyloid accumulation within pancreatic islets leading to impairment of pancreatic islets secretory(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes is a systemic disease affecting many organs, including skin. Skin may reflect the condition of internal organs. The aim of our study was to measure skin pH in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients and in healthy controls and to evaluate the association between metabolic control of diabetes and skin acidity in T1DM patients.

BACKGROUND Various skin diseases are commonly observed in diabetic patients. Typical biophysical properties of diabetic skin such as lower skin elasticity, decreased water content in stratum corneum, increased itching and sweating disturbances are reported. The aim of the study was to examine the distribution and intensity of skin pigmentation in diabetic(More)
The authors tried to compare the usefulness of the isoelectric focusing of EAP in bloodstains on 0.2 mm polyacrylamide gel with their method of determination of the enzyme on 1 mm polyacrylamide gel. Both methods turned out to be useful but better results were obtained on 0.2 mm gel. Isoelectric focusing on the ultra-thin gel is more sensitive; it gives(More)
