1. The effect of the alpha-glucosidase inhibitor Acarbose on collagen fluorescence reflecting formation of advanced glycation end products was examined in streptozotocin-diabetic rats. 2. Treatment with Acarbose for eight weeks after induction of diabetes prevented the increased fluorescence in skin and tail tendon collagen associated with untreated… CONTINUE READING
