To elucidate the relationships between obesity, glycemic control, dyslipidemia, hypertension, microvascular complications, and insulin resistance assessed using an euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp technique, we studied 54 hospitalized type 2 diabetic subjects (DM) and 10 age- and sex-matched normotensive, nonobese control subjects (C). Glucose infusion(More)
To clarify which parameter, diurnal pattern of blood pressure (BP) or level of BP variability, has the stronger predictive value for fatal and nonfatal vascular events, vital status after a mean (+/-SD) follow-up period of 86+/-46 months was determined in 392 type 2 diabetic subjects without any history of vascular disease, in whom the 24-h BP profile had(More)
INTRODUCTION We evaluated the effects of synthesized collagen model polypeptides consisting of a proline-hydroxyproline-glycine (poly(PHG)) sequence combined with porous alpha-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) particles on bone formation in a canine tibia defect model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The porous α-TCP particles were mixed with a poly(PHG) solution, and(More)
The present prospective observational study was designed to assess the prevalence of hemodialysis in type 2 diabetic patients with an impairment of plasma aldosterone responsiveness to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Sixty seven patients (43 men and 24 women) were selected. The inclusion criteria were age < 65 years; presence of normoalbuminemia (serum(More)

The epithelial lining of odontogenic keratocysts exhibits either parakeratosis or orthokeratosis. In 2005, the WHO classified odontogenic keratocysts with parakeratosis as keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT). Odontogenic keratocysts with orthokeratosis were not classified as odontogenic tumors, but instead referred to as orthokeratinized odontogenic(More)
