Studies of the Early Meal Phase in Healthy Individuals - Nutrient Absorption and Gastrointestinal Hormone Secretion

2018-06-07 23:55:11 | BioPortfolio


To investigate gastrointestinal hormone secretions and nutrient absorption during the early meal phase we will recruit 12 healthy young men. They will be equipped with peripheral intravenous catheters for frequent blood sampling. Participants will be screened and acclimatised to the study situation on visit 1. On visit 2 and 3 participants will in random order ingest an oral glucose solution or a standardised liquid mixed meal over 2-3 min.

Microvascular Insulin Resistance and Mixed Meal Challenge

Insulin resistance (or pre-diabetes) is diagnosed using the oral glucose tolerance test. However, high blood glucose levels during this test may adversely impact on microvascular function....

Glucose Metabolism in the Immediate and Short Term Follow up After Bariatric Surgery

MIDAS involves an assessment of glucose levels obtained before and after bariatric surgery. There are two different procedural tests involved; an oral glucose tolerance test (mixed meal) a...

Human Solute Carrier Family 5 Member 2 (SLC5A2) Deficiency and the Glucagon-Incretin Axis

Sodium-glucose-cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) are a new type of oral antidiabetic drugs. SGLT2 inhibitors increase the urinary glucose excretion and thereby decrease blood glucose levels. Beside ...

Development of Diabetes in Adults With Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

This is a crossover study to determine the possible factors that might be related to the development of diabetes in CF and examines the relationship between pancreatic fatigue if any, and ...

Association Between Low Plasma Glucose After Oral Glucose Tolerance Test in Pregnancy With Impaired Fetal Growth

Objective: To study the association of low maternal plasma glucose in 2 hour 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in women with impaired birth weight and determinate if this result is p...

The influence of gene polymorphisms on postprandial triglyceride response after oral fat tolerance test meal in patients with diabetes mellitus.

We evaluated the influence of CETP (rs5882 and rs708272), APOE (rs7412, rs429358) and LPL (rs328) gene polymorphisms on triglyceride (TG) response to oral fat tolerance test meal (OFTT) in patients wi...


The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the 1-hr oral Glucose tolerance test (OGTT) (≥155 mg/dl) and metabolic syndrome (MS) in a sample with previous impaired fasting glucose ...

Prevalence of hypoglycaemia in a random population after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass after a meal test.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is an effective way to induce sustainable weight loss and can be complicated by postprandial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia (PHH). To study the prevalence and the mecha...

Plasma Metabolomics to Identify and Stratify Patients with Impaired Glucose Tolerance.

Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is one of the pre-symptomatic states of type 2 diabetes mellitus and requires an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) for diagnosis. Our aims were two-fold: 1) character...

A new index of clinical utility for diagnostic tests.

Clinical utility of a diagnostic test depends on its diagnostic accuracy, the pretest probability of disease and the clinical consequences of the test results. Tools for evaluating clinical utility ar...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

Measure of histocompatibility at the HL-A locus. Peripheral blood lymphocytes from two individuals are mixed together in tissue culture for several days. Lymphocytes from incompatible individuals will stimulate each other to proliferate significantly (measured by tritiated thymidine uptake) whereas those from compatible individuals will not. In the one-way MLC test, the lymphocytes from one of the individuals are inactivated (usually by treatment with MITOMYCIN or radiation) thereby allowing only the untreated remaining population of cells to proliferate in response to foreign histocompatibility antigens.

A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.

A test to determine the lowest sound intensity level at which fifty percent or more of the spondaic test words (words of two syllables having equal stress) are repeated correctly.
