Vitamin A metabolites such as all-trans-retinoic acid (all-trans-RA) affect several steps of metabolic processes in vertebrates. In the last few years, several studies have shown the effect of RA on bone formation and metabolism. However, mechanisms of its action still remain unclear, especially with respect to the regulation of bone cells. Therefore, this(More)
Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, obesity, and essential hypertension are associated with hyperinsulinemia that results from insulin resistance and insulin has been reported to accelerate atherosclerosis. We studied the effects of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) on the growth of porcine vascular smooth muscle cells and on the(More)

To investigate the frequency and etiology of diabetic osteopenia, we measured spinal bone mineral density (SBMD), total body bone mineral density (TBBMD), total body fat and lean body mass in 69 female diabetic patients (14 IDDMs and 55 NIDDMs). SBMD decreased with age in both IDDM and NIDDM, but when expressed as a percentage of age-matched normal Japanese(More)
Visit-to-visit blood pressure (BP) variability is an important predictor of stroke. However, which antihypertensive drug combination is better at reducing visit-to-visit BP variability and therefore at reducing stroke incidence remains uncertain. We have previously reported that the dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker benidipine combined with a(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the ameliorating effect of sitagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, on blood glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who were previously untreated with or who have a poor responsive to existing antidiabetic drugs. METHODS Sitagliptin (50 mg/day) was added on to the pre-existing therapy for type 2(More)
