Pre-diabetes in Subject With Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG) and Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT)

HYPOTHESIS: Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and impaired fasting glucose (IFG) have distinct pathophysiologic etiologies. Therefore, therapeutic interventions designed to correct the spec...

Microvascular Blood Flow and Metabolic Flexibility in Hispanics

Microvascular insulin resistance has been shown to precede myocyte insulin resistance and impairments in metabolic function. However, there is no convincing data showing the relationship b...

Effect of Sitagliptin in Impaired Glucose Tolerance

The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and efficacy of sitagliptin 100 mg every day (q.d.) in improving hyperglycemia and endothelial dysfunction in subjects with impaired gluc...

Randomized Controlled Trial of Valganciclovir for Asymptomatic Cytomegalovirus Infected Hearing Impaired Infants

The overall goal of this study is to determine the clinical benefit and safety of antiviral therapy for asymptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infected hearing-impaired infants. We...

Video Intervention to Enhance the Safety Of Cognitively Impaired Older Drivers

This pilot study was done to assess the feasibility and possible efficacy of a video feedback intervention to improve the safety of cognitively impaired older drivers.

Cognitive phenotypes in multiple sclerosis.

Cognitive impairment is a debilitating symptom experienced by ~ 50% of multiple sclerosis patients, with processing speed (PS) and memory most affected. Until now, the field has considered cognition...

Preterm infants undergoing laparotomy for necrotizing enterocolitis or spontaneous intestinal perforation display evidence of impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation.

Preterm infants requiring surgery are at risk of impaired neurocognitive development caused, possibly, by cerebral ischemia associated with impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation (CAR). We evaluated ...

Preliminary evaluation of a human laboratory model of impaired control over alcohol using intravenous alcohol self-administration.

Impaired control over alcohol is central to alcohol use disorder, but most research on impaired control is limited to self-report methods. This study applied intravenous alcohol self-administration to...

Impaired glucose metabolism in subjects with the Williams-Beuren syndrome: A five-year follow-up cohort study.

The Williams-Beuren syndrome (WS) is associated with impaired glucose metabolism (IGM) early in adulthood. However, the pathophysiology of IGM remains poorly defined, due to the lack of longitudinal s...

Validity of Teleneuropsychological Assessment in Older Patients with Cognitive Disorders.

The feasibility and reliability of neuropsychological assessment at a distance have been demonstrated, but the validity of this testing medium has not been adequately demonstrated. The purpose of this...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood coagulation disorder usually inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, though it can be acquired. It is characterized by defective activity in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways, impaired thromboplastin time, and impaired prothrombin consumption.

A disease that is characterized by frequent urination, excretion of large amounts of dilute URINE, and excessive THIRST. Etiologies of diabetes insipidus include deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (also known as ADH or VASOPRESSIN) secreted by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS, impaired KIDNEY response to ADH, and impaired hypothalamic regulation of thirst.

Temporary visual deficit or impaired visual processing occurring in a rapid serial visual presentation task. After a person identifies the first of two visual targets, the ability to detect the second target is impaired for the next few hundred milliseconds. This phenomenon is called attentional blink.

An autosomal recessive form of CHONDRODYSPLASIA PUNCTATA characterized by defective plasmalogen biosynthesis and impaired peroxisomes. Patients have shortened proximal limbs and severely disturbed endochondral bone formation. The metabolic defects associated with the impaired peroxisomes are present only in the rhizomelic form of chondrodysplasia punctata. (From Scriver et al, Metabolic Basis of Inherited Disease, 6th ed, p1497)

Impaired digestion, especially after eating.
