Monocyte-derived microparticles play an important role in the pathogenesis of diabetic vasculopathy, and angiotensin II receptor blocker and statin have been shown to have a beneficial effect on the angiopathies of hypertension and hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, the interaction between angiotensin II receptor blocker and(More)
BACKGROUND Advanced glycation end products, selectins, and adiponectin play important roles in the development of atherosclerosis in individuals with diabetes. Sitagliptin has been shown to reduce the concentration of glycated hemoglobin in diabetic patients. However, its effects on soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products (sRAGEs), selectins,(More)
Endothelial cells, platelets, and oxidized LDL could play very important roles in the development of atherosclerosis in diabetes patients. The levels of plasma endothelial cell-derived microparticles (EDMP), platelet-derived microparticles (PDMP), platelet-P-selectin (plt-PS), soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L), and anti-oxidized LDL antibody were measured and(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-derived microparticles (PDMP), selectins, and adiponectin play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis in diabetes. Miglitol has been shown to have a beneficial effect on postprandial hyperglycemia in diabetic patients. However, its influence on platelet activation markers (PDMP and soluble CD40 ligand [sCD40L]),(More)
Platelet-derived microparticles, activated platelets, and monocyte-derived microparticles were measured in 73 patients with diabetes mellitus. A comparative study of these parameters was performed before and after administration of ticlopidine. The number of platelet-derived microparticles and activated platelets was increased significantly in diabetic(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the main cause of death among hemodialysis (HD) patients. The effects of the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor teneligliptin on CVD-related biomarkers in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) receiving HD treatment are poorly understood. To determine whether teneligliptin has anti-CVD properties, we assessed(More)
