Ischemic stroke is a common, devastating and costly disease. Half of acute stroke patients have elevated glucose levels upon admission to the hospital, and hyperglycemia is associated with poor outcome for post-stroke patients. It is unclear if treatment of hyperglycemia or glucose lowering improves outcome, however, in animal stroke models and other human conditions, aggressive glucose lowering is beneficial.
The goal of this multicenter trial is to determine if tight control of blood glucose is beneficial in hyperglycemic patients with acute ischemic stroke. In the trial, researchers will compare intravenous (IV) glucose insulin and potassium (GIK) therapy plus meal insulin to control therapy in 72 stroke patients.
Participants will be randomly assigned to one of three groups—(1) the control group with a target glucose level of <300mg/dL; (2) the tight control GIK plus meal insulin group with a target of <110mg/dL; or (3) the loose control GIK plus meal insulin group with a target of <200mg/dL—with all groups avoiding glucose levels of <70mg/dL.
The specific aims of this study are to collect preliminary data on the safety and feasibility of GIK for treatment of hyperglycemia in acute stroke patients, and to collect preliminary data comparing tight GIK therapy with loose GIK therapy and control therapy. Information learned in this study will compliment ongoing work and allow for maximum efficiency in the design of future treatment trials.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cardioprotective effects of a short term infusion of glucose-insulin-potassium (GIK) during heart surgery.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the glucose insulin potassium (GIK) infusion associated with intensive insulin therapy compared to GIK alone in patients presenting to th...
The study is designed to determine if ZS 10g administered up to three times over 10h added to insulin and glucose in patients presenting with hyperkalemia will prove tolerable and efficaci...
The purpose of this study is to test the impact of pharmacological myocardial metabolic support, in the form of intravenous (IV) glucose, insulin and potassium (GIK), for the treatment of ...
The purpose of this study is: 1. to assess whether pre-hospital glucose-insulin-potassium (GIK) administration in acute STEMI patients would reduce infarct size and ischemia/reperf...
Treating hyperglycemia in previously non-diabetic individuals with exogenous insulin immediately after kidney transplantation reduced the odds of developing Posttransplantation Diabetes Mellitus (PTDM...
Acidemia and electrolyte imbalances such as hyperkalemia are common in neonatal calves with diarrhea. Acidemia negatively affects the cellular response to insulin and may therefore result in deranged ...
Two female patients were admitted due to ketoacidosis. Serum glucose was moderately elevated. The patients exhibited abdominal and neurologic symptoms. Treatment consisted of metformin, insulin glargi...
Insulin dysregulation (ID) with basal or postprandial hyperinsulinemia is one of the key findings in horses and ponies suffering from the equine metabolic syndrome (EMS). Assessment of ID can easily b...
In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requested that all new type 2 anti-diabetic drugs, including long-acting insulin analogues, need to be rigorously examined to preclude undesirable cardio...
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
A glucose transport protein found in mature MUSCLE CELLS and ADIPOCYTES. It promotes transport of glucose from the BLOOD into target TISSUES. The inactive form of the protein is localized in CYTOPLASMIC VESICLES. In response to INSULIN, it is translocated to the PLASMA MEMBRANE where it facilitates glucose uptake.
Portable or implantable devices for infusion of insulin. Includes open-loop systems which may be patient-operated or controlled by a pre-set program and are designed for constant delivery of small quantities of insulin, increased during food ingestion, and closed-loop systems which deliver quantities of insulin automatically based on an electronic glucose sensor.
