Hyperglycemia is implicated to play a major role in development of diabetic neuropathy. Since most of the diabetics are hyperglycemic much before they develop full-blown diabetes, we felt, it would be very important to know the effects of acute hyperglycemia on nerve function so that early pathophysiological events could be understood and appropriate therapeutic intervention can be made. Moreover, effect of acute hyperglycemia on motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) and nerve blood flow (NBF… Expand
n5-STZ Diabetic Model Develops Alterations in Sciatic Nerve and Dorsal Root Ganglia Neurons of Wistar Rats
One experimental model of diabetes mellitus (DM) similar to type II DM, called n5-STZ, is obtained by a single injection (via i.p.) of streptozotocin (STZ) in the 5th day of life of newborn rats. TheExpand
Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion causes an insulin-dependent nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation in the blood supply of the rat sciatic nerve.
TLDR
The vasodilation in rat sciatic nerve during glucose infusion was dependent upon the insulin response and acted through a nitric oxide synthase pathway and was attenuated in rats without a functioning pancreas. Expand
Does acute hyperglycemia alter rat aortic depressor nerve function?
TLDR
It is demonstrated, by means of two different approaches for assessing baroreceptor function, that aortic depressor nerve activity was not altered by short-term (30 min) hyperglycemia and transfer function magnitude was similar in all groups during induced or spontaneous oscillations of arterial pressure. Expand
The effect of low-dose insulin on mechanical sensitivity and allodynia in type I diabetes neuropathy
TLDR
The results confirmed that an insulin deficit with impaired insulin signaling and neurotrophic support, rather than hyperglycemia, plays an essential role in the pathophysiology of painful diabetic neuropathy. Expand
Independent alterations in the central and peripheral somatosensory pathways in rat diabetic neuropathy
TLDR
It is indicated that diabetes induces a wide spectrum of alterations in the central somatosensory system that are independent of the decreases in peripheral sensory transmission that could be responsible for the disturbances in somatoensory perception observed in diabetes. Expand
EFFECTS OF TROLOX ON NERVE DYSFUNCTION, THERMAL HYPERALGESIA AND OXIDATIVE STRESS IN EXPERIMENTAL DIABETIC NEUROPATHY
TLDR
Trolox treatment improved the activity of anti‐oxidant enzymes and inhibited lipid peroxidation in sciatic nerves of diabetic rats and suggested the beneficial effects of trolox in experimental diabetic neuropathy. Expand
The neuroprotective effects of progesterone on experimental diabetic neuropathy in rats
TLDR
It is indicated that PROG as a therapeutic approach can protect neurophysiologic and histomorphologic alterations induced by peripheral diabetic neuropathy by increasing MNCV significantly and prevented all these abnormalities in treated diabetic rats. Expand
Effect of glucose concentration on peripheral nerve and its response to anoxia
TLDR
The findings confirm the importance of glucose concentration for nerve function especially during anoxia, as well as the deleterious effects of hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia, which were more pronounced in nerves exposed to intermittentAnoxia. Expand
The Effect of Co-administration of 4-Methylcatechol and Progesterone on Sciatic Nerve Function and Neurohistological Alterations in Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Neuropathy in Rats
TLDR
The findings indicated that co-administration of P and 4-MC may prevent sciatic nerve dysfunction and histomorphological alterations in experimental diabetic neuropathy. Expand
Preventive and curative effect of edaravone on nerve functions and oxidative stress in experimental diabetic neuropathy.
TLDR
Preventive and curative treatment of edaravone significantly improved the nerve conduction velocity and nociception but not nerve blood flow in diabetic rats and may be tried clinically for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy since it is clinically used in stroke patients. Expand

Acute hyperglycemia attenuates endothelium-dependent vasodilation in humans in vivo.
TLDR
Acute hyperglycemia impairs endothelium-dependent vasodilation in healthy humans in vivo, and suggests that elevated glucose may contribute to the endothelial dysfunction observed in patients with diabetes mellitus. Expand
Oxygen affinity of hemoglobin and peripheral nerve degeneration in experimental diabetes
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the level of RBC DPG (and presumably the Hb-O2 affinity) with its attendant effect on tissue oxygen release may play a role in the development of peripheral neuropathy in STZ-induced diabetic rats treated with insulin. Expand
Depletion of Taurine in Experimental Diabetic Neuropathy: Implications for Nerve Metabolic, Vascular, and Functional Deficits
TLDR
Taurine depletion in the vascular endothelium and Schwann cells of the sciatic nerve may contribute to the neurovascular and metabolic deficits in EDN. Expand
Hyperglycemia rapidly suppresses flow-mediated endothelium-dependent vasodilation of brachial artery.
TLDR
Hyperglycemia in response to oral glucose loading rapidly suppresses endothelium-dependent vasodilation, probably through increased production of oxygen-derived free radicals, and these findings strongly suggest that prolonged and repeated post-prandial hyper glycemia may play an important role in the development and progression of atherosclerosis. Expand
Effects of the peptide HP228 on nerve disorders in diabetic rats.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a novel peptide may protect against the slowing of nerve conduction in prolonged diabetes and that the mechanism of action is unrelated to aldose reductase inhibition, prevention of nerve ischemia, or axonal atrophy. Expand
A protein kinase C-beta-selective inhibitor ameliorates neural dysfunction in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
TLDR
Observations suggest that inhibition of PKC-beta by LY may have a beneficial effect in preventing the development of diabetic nerve dysfunction, and that this effect may be mediated through its action on the endoneurial micro-vasculature. Expand
An adenosine kinase inhibitor attenuates tactile allodynia in a rat model of diabetic neuropathic pain.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the potent and selective adenosine kinase inhibitor, 5'd-5IT, is equally effective as morphine in blocking tactile allodynia in this model of diabetes. Expand

TLDR
A protective effect of adenosine is illustrated on both normo- and hyperglycemic ischemia-reperfusion injury and thus support the hypothesis that attenuated cerebral ischemic production ofAdenosine contributes to increased tissue injury observed underhyperglycemic conditions. Expand
Diabetic neuropathy and nerve regeneration
TLDR
Although conventional therapeutic drugs like aldose reductase (AR) inhibitors and vasodilators have been shown to enhance nerve regeneration, their efficacy should be strictly evaluated with respect to nerve regenerative capacity. Expand
