We evaluated the possible role of islet glucokinase in controlling the rate of islet glucose metabolism, and thereby the rate of glucose-induced insulin release. The activities of glucokinase, hexokinase, P-fructokinase, and glyceraldehyde-P dehydrogenase were quantitated in sonicated or isotonically homogenized islet preparations using pyridine(More)
Pirogliride potentiates glucose-induced insulin secretion from isolated islets. This effect is accompanied by a facilitated glucose metabolism. Pirogliride partially prevents the known inhibitory effects of mannoheptulose on glucose-induced secretion and utilization. Pirogliride might be useful not only to probe the underlying mechanism of stimulated(More)
Nurse practitioners identified as successful were interviewed to evaluate factors related to the viability of nurse practitioners in the health care system. The interviewees believed they were successful because they provided a nursing dimension of primary care, developed strategies to market themselves and their services, collaborated with physicians who(More)
