OBJECTIVE To provide an epidemiological description and risk factors of chronic vascular complications of type 2 diabetic in-patients in four municipalities including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Chongqing. METHODS Data of the study came from 3,469 Type 2 diabetic in-patients from 1991 to 2000 in 10 medical centers of Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Propylthiouracil (PTU) has been known to induce myeloperoxidase-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (MPO-ANCA) positive vasculitis. Our previous study indicated that the increase of avidity of MPO-ANCA might be associated with the occurrence of clinical vasculitis in patients with PTU-induced ANCA. The current study aimed to follow-up the avidity(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is increasing rapidly among Chinese adults, and limited data are available on T2DM management and the status of glycemic control in China. We assessed the efficacy of oral antidiabetes drugs (OADs), glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, and insulin for treatment of T2DM across(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant human parathyroid hormone (1-34) (rhPTH (1-34)) is the first agent in a unique class of anabolic therapies acting on the skeleton. The efficacy and safety of long-term administration of rhPTH (1-34) in Chinese postmenopausal women had not been evaluated. This study compared the clinical efficacy and safety of rhPTH (1-34) with(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes management could be improved by diabetes education, through influencing attitudes towards diabetes, knowledge and behaviors of patients. The purpose of this study was to characterize the impact of diabetes education on glycemic control, and to assess the attitude, knowledge and self-care behavior in patients with type 2 diabetes in(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant human parathyroid hormone (1-34) (rhPTH (1-34)) given by injection is a new seventh class drug of biological products, which is prepared by adopting gene recombination technique. rhPTH (1-34) is mainly used to treat osteoporosis, especially for postmenopausal women. This study compared the clinical efficacy and safety of rhPTH (1-34)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relation among the results of thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), thyroid ultrasonography (US) and histopathologic diagnosis about the thyroid nodules detected by physical examination, meanwhile to analyze the etiopathogenesis of the nodules and to evaluate the risk of thyroid cancer and the clinical diagnostic value(More)
BACKGROUND Adaptor proteins containing PH domain, PTB domain, and leucine zipper motif 1 and 2 (APPL1/2) play a key role in cell proliferation in many tissues. APPL1 or APPL2 as an adaptor for adiponectin receptors mediates the signaling pathway of adiponectin which acts as an anti-atherosclerotic adipokine. This study aimed to investigate whether genetic(More)
This multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigated the efficacy of acarbose in Chinese individuals with impaired glucose tolerance (determined using a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test). Subjects were randomised to either placebo or acarbose 50 mg t.i.d. for a period of 16 weeks. Primary efficacy variables were the maximum postprandial(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin treatment plays a key role in management of diabetes mellitus. Clinical researches showed that extra improvements in restoration of insulin secretion of pancreatic beta cells were found in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of early insulin treatment on insulin mRNA(More)
