Impact of metabolic control and serum lipids on the concentration of advanced glycation end products in the serum of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes, as determined by fluorescence spectroscopy and nepsilon-(carboxymethyl)lysine ELISA.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are a complex and heterogenous group of proteins that are formed by nonenzymatic glycation in a series of reactions. It is hypothesized that they may play a role in the pathogenesis of diabetes-related complications; at present, however, their exact biological role is scarcely understood. Clinical studies so… (More)
