Fixed-ratio combination of insulin degludec and liraglutide (IDegLira) improves cardiovascular risk markers in patients with type 2 diabetes uncontrolled on basal insulin.

This post hoc analysis investigated effects of insulin degludec/liraglutide fixed-ratio combination (IDegLira) versus comparators on cardiovascular (CV) risk markers from DUAL II (versus insulin degludec), DUAL V (versus insulin glargine 100 units/mL) and DUAL VII (versus basal-bolus therapy) in patients grouped by sex, age (

Basal insulin glargine and omega-3 on lower limb arterial disease outcome in patients with dysglycemia. An analysis of the Outcome Reduction with an Initial Glargine INtervention (ORIGIN) Trial.

The impact of insulin or omega-3 supplements on the incidence and progression of peripheral artery disease (PAD) in patients with dysglycemia has not been well studied. The ORIGIN trial randomized participants with dysglycemia and cardiovascular risk factors to titrated insulin glargine versus standard care, and to either 1 g of omega-3 per day or placebo. We assessed incident PAD, defined as the ...

Allosteric Interactions in Human Cytochrome P450 CYP3A4: The Role of Phenylalanine 213.

The role of Phe213 in the allosteric mechanism of human cyto-chrome P450 CYP3A4 was studied using a combination of progesterone (PGS) and carbamazepine (CBZ) as probe sub-strates. We expressed, purified and incorporated in POPC Nanodiscs three mutants, F213A, F213S, and F213Y, and compared them with the wild-type CYP3A4 monitoring spec-tral titration, the rate of NADPH oxidation and steady-state p...

Short Telomere Subtelomeric Hypomethylation is associated with Telomere Attrition in Elderly Diabetic Patients.

Telomere shortening is well known to be associated with the aging process and aging-associated diseases, including diabetes. The telomere length and subtelomeric methylation status in peripheral leucocytes (LTL) were compared in elderly type 2 diabetes patients (T2D) and diabetes free controls (C). The methylation status was analyzed the between of MspI-TRF lengths and HpaII-TRF lengths by using m...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Children with Type 1 Diabetes Improves Well-Being, Alleviates Worry and Fear of Hypoglycemia.
