The glucuronidation kinetics of the prototypic substrates 4-methylumbelliferone (4MU) and 1-naphthol (1NP) by human UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGT) 1A1, 1A3, 1A4, 1A6, 1A7, 1A8, 1A9, 1A10, 2B7, 2B15, and 2B17 were investigated. Where activity was demonstrated, inhibitory effects of diclofenac, probenecid, and the solvents acetone, acetonitrile, dimethyl(More)
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 To compare the efficacy and safety of insulin aspart (IAsp) and human insulin (HI) when applied as meal-time insulin with neutral protamine Hagedorn insulin (NPH) at bedtime in diabetics. METHODS A total of 220 Chinese subjects with type 1 or type 2 diabetes from 5 different hospitals were randomized by a ratio of 1:1 into two groups accepting(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical importance of glycaemic control in patients with diabetes has been well established. This study aimed to explore twice-daily biphasic insulin aspart 30 (BIAsp 30) for insulin initiation in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who had poor glycaemic control with human insulins (HIs). We use data from a Chinese cohort of the(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)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of GLP-1 on the blood glucose in type 2 diabetic rats, and its protective effects on the islet B cells. METHODS Thirty rats were divided into three groups: spontaneous type 2 diabetes animal model OLETF rats, GLP-1 [from the twelfth week 56 micro/(kg.d), sc] therapy group and LETO rats as control. In the 14th and 20th(More)
OBJECTIVE Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) has been well documented in association with propylthiouracil (PTU), and some patients with PTU-induced ANCA also develop clinical vasculitis. The aim of the current study was to detect ANCA specificities in sera from patients with PTU-induced ANCA with and without clinical vasculitis. METHODS Sera from(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the significance of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) in hyperthyroidism at different stages and treated with different drugs and to investigate the relationship between the ANCA specific target antigens and the clinical manifestations of vasculitis. METHODS Two hundred and sixteen patients with hyperthyroidism were(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 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)
