Pathogenesis of Youth Onset Type 2 Diabetes and Prediabetes

Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) in obese youth is often preceded by a prediabetic state called: Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT), which is associated with a pre-existing defect in insulin secretion....

Evalutation of Insulin Sensitivity Through Hyperinsulinemic Clamp in Children With GH Deficiency

Data about the impact of growth hormone treatment on insulin sensitivity in children are quite controversial, due to the different surrogate indexes that have been used, like Homa-IR, QUIC...

Type 2 Diabetes and the Brain in Adolescents

This study evaluates differences in brain function and cognitive performance in adolescents with type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared to non diabetic controls (both obese and lean) and correlate...

Effect of Adiposity on Hepatic and Peripheral Insulin Resistance in Type 1 Diabetes

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of adiposity on resistance to insulin's ability to suppress hepatic glucose production and to stimulate peripheral glucose metabolism in ...

The Effects of Antecedent Hypoglycemia or Exercise on the Response of the Brain to Subsequent Hypoglycemia

The studies proposed in this application seek to use non-invasive techniques to examine the impact of repeated hypoglycemia on the brain.

The muscle anabolic effect of protein ingestion during a hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp in middle-aged women is not caused by leucine alone.

It has been suggested that leucine is primarily responsible for the increase in muscle protein synthesis after protein ingestion because leucine uniquely activates the mTOR-p70S6K signaling cascade. W...

Glucose homeostasis in statin users - the LIFESTAT study.

Background Statins are widely used to lower cholesterol concentrations in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The treatment increases the risk of muscle pain (myalgia) and...

Insulin Resistance is a Significant Determinant of Sarcopenia in Advanced Kidney Disease.

Maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients display significant nutritional abnormalities. Insulin is an anabolic hormone with direct effects on skeletal muscle (SM). We examined the anabolic actions of i...

Influence of litter size on insulin sensitivity in multiparous sows.

The objectives were to examine effects of litter size on insulin sensitivity in multiparous sows at the end of pregnancy. Twelve sows were allocated in two treatments after weaning: control (CTR) or l...

Off-clamp vs on-clamp robotic partial nephrectomy: Perioperative, functional and oncological outcomes from a propensity-score matching between two high-volume centers.

Aim of the study was to compare perioperative, functional and oncological outcomes after off-clamp vs on-clamp robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

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.

Electrodes with an extremely small tip, used in a voltage clamp or other apparatus to stimulate or record bioelectric potentials of single cells intracellularly or extracellularly. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).

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.
