Comparison of noninvasive glucose measurement performance versus standard invasive reference measurements.
The objectives of this study are
- collect subject data on a near-infrared spectroscopy-based glucose meter
- evaluate existing instrumentation, calibration algorithms and calibration maintenance techniques
- collect data on the physiological and environmental sources of interference and degradation of measurement accuracy.

This 24-week study will compare the effects of adding the drug rosiglitazone (2mg and 4mg) or placebo to insulin in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (non-insulin-dependent) who have ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Amaryl when added to Metformin and Thiazolidinedione (TZD) in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients.
The aim of the study is to prove the efficacy of the oral intake of vildagliptin in a daily dose of 100 mg in scope of the development of type 2 diabetes in women with insulin dependent ge...
This trial is conducted in Japan. The aim of this trial is to investigate the efficacy of insulin detemir on blood glucose control in subjects with insulin requiring diabetes.
This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PN2034 in insulin-dependent type 2 diabetics as measured by the change in average daily insulin dose from baseline to week 12....
Pancreatitis is a frequent toxicity to acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treatment, significantly associated with asparaginase use, and may be followed by severe complications such as acute hyperglyc...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intensive insulin therapy (premixed insulin lispro vs. insulin glargine) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).
Insulin resistance is a major pathogenic hallmark of impaired glucose metabolism. We assessed the accuracy of insulin resistance and cut-off values using homeostasis model assessment of insulin resist...
Insulin glargine, a long-acting human insulin analogue, allows for once-daily basal use in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). MYL-1501D is a proposed insulin glargine biosimilar.
Understanding which therapeutic innovations in diabetes represent the best value requires rigorous economic evaluation. Data from randomised controlled trials and observational studies indicate that i...
A strain of Rattus norvegicus which is a model for spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, INSULIN-DEPENDENT).
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.
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).
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)
Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.
