GPR 119 Stimulated GLP-1 Secretion
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of different ligands of GPR 119 (a G protein-coupled receptor in the intestine) on the secretion of the incretin hormones, GLP-1 and GIP.
We have found a new ligand for the GPR 119 receptor. This study evaluate the impact of this ligand on the incretion hormone responses, beta cell function and gall bladder function in healthy young men.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Interleukin-1 Receptor Accessory Protein
A protein that takes part in the formation of active interleukin-1 receptor complex. It binds specifically to INTERLEUKIN-1 and the INTERLEUKIN-1 RECEPTOR TYPE I at the cell surface to form a heterotrimeric complex that brings its cytoplasmic domain into contact with the cytoplasm domain of the TYPE-I INTERLEUKIN-1 RECEPTOR. Activation of intracellular signal transduction pathways from the receptor is believed to be driven by this form of cytoplasmic interaction.
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).
Receptors, Prostaglandin E, Ep1 Subtype
A subtype of prostaglandin E receptors that specifically couples to GTP-BINDING PROTEIN ALPHA SUBUNIT, GQ and the subsequently activates TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES. Additional evidence has shown that the receptor can act through a calcium-dependent signaling pathway.
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
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.
Conditions characterized by abnormal lipid deposition due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases involving lysosomal enzymes required for lipid breakdown. They are classified either by the enzyme defect or by the type of lipid involved.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) (a specific type of diabetes).
The purpose of this clinical study is to determine the safety and efficacy of an investigational drug in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The purpose of this study is to test the effect of MK0941 as add-on therapy for patients taking insulin for Type 2 Diabetes.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of an investigational drug in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Dyslipidemia is a risk factor for incident type 2 diabetes; however, no study has specifically assessed the lipid ratios (i.e. total cholesterol (TC)/ high density lipoprotein ch...
The young-onset diabetes seen in HNF1A-MODY is often misdiagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes, unlike HNF1A-MODY, is associated with insulin resistance and a characteristic dyslipidaemia. We a...
The overproduction of intestinal lipoproteins may contribute to the dyslipidemia found in diabetes. We studied the influence of diabetes on the fasting jejunal lipid content and its association with p...
In this review, we explore the concept of 'double diabetes', a combination of type 1 diabetes with features of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. After considering whether double diabetes is a us...
This review deals with the role of glycogen storage in skeletal muscle for the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Specifically, the role of the enzyme glycogen synthase, which seem...
