To screen spontaneous diabetic mellitus and explore methods for its rapid identification, the basal and inferred levels of blood glucose of 440 overweight, middle- and old-aged cynomolgus monkeys were analyzed. Diagnostic diabetes was further validated by the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and urine glucose. The average level of blood glucose of these(More)
A total of 138 middle and aged cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) (above 10 years) were classified into three groups based on fasting plasma glucose (FPG) values, specifically low FPG, normal FPG, and high FPG group. Total cholesterol (TCHO), triglycerides (TG), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and low density lipoprotein cholesterol(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a metabolic disease with a strong genetic component that is very prevalent in the world. The aim of this study is to investigate the association of a set of six obesity-related genes with the different disease phases of T2DM in a model using middle or aged cynomogus monkeys. A total of 25 male monkeys were used and fed(More)
To explore pathological alteration of T2DM in cynomolgus monkeys, gene expression profiles of peripheral blood leukocytes from spontaneous and diet-induced T2DM models was analyzed using quantitative real-time PCR. Among 36 T2DM associated genes tested, 19 genes (including G6PC, CCR2B, CTLA4) displayed a similar expression pattern in both spontaneous and(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate regulation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) response by acupuncture and to investigate its neuroprotective effect on brain injury caused by heroin addiction. METHODS A total of 48 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into a healthy control group (Control), an untreated heroin exposed group (Heroin) and a heroin(More)
