The Effect of Prostaglandin I2 on the Endothelial Cell Function Disorder in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients
This study attempts to examine the effect of oral prostaglandin I2 (Beraprost Na), administered for eight weeks, on the endothelial cell functional disorder among asymptomatic high risk diabetes mellitus patients.
This study plans to include those subjects who have complaint of peripheral microvascular symptoms but have evidences of having neither a coronary arterial disease nor a peripheral arterial disease and show normal findings in the vascular stiffness test (PWV and ABI)) and plethysmography of the legs (PVR)) ,among Type II diabetes mellitus patients of forty-five (45) years old or older, This study is conducted by using a randomized double blind method. These drugs are distributed through a pharmacy in the clinical study center and administered randomly for eight weeks while this study allots patients by using a double blind method. Beraprost Na is administered along with a placebo that was manufactured by the same manufacturer to have the identical exterior look and weight of Beraprost Na. After eight weeks of drug administration, this investigation attempts to verify symptomatic improvement and change in the endothelial function by using VENDYS® and ICG perfusion imaging.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
