Glycemic control is rapidly restored in patients with insulin resistance after bariatric surgery, in particular after the mal-absorptive one (i.e. Bilio-pancreatic diversion, BPD). To evaluate the mechanisms allowing restoration of insulin sensitivity after BPD the investigators aimed at identifying by using a proteomic approach plasma proteins or peptides that may be involved in the remarkably fast and explicit restoration of insulin sensitivity. In addition to the unbiased proteomics approach, a selection of recognized markers for metabolic control will be measured. These efforts all aim at an increased understanding of how insulin sensitivity is regulated and may provide novel ideas of how to treat insulin resistance and type 2-diabetes.
Study design The study is designed as a single-centre, observational study. The patients will undergo routine analyses usually performed before and after biliopancreatic diversion surgery (BPD), independently of the participation to this specific protocol with the only exception of meal test. Twenty morbidly obese male subjects scheduled for BPD for will be included in the study.
The inclusion and exclusion criteria are set as to create a sufficiently homogenous study population.
As outlined in the study flow chart subjects will be studied and blood samples collected at 3 weeks (+/- 1 week) and 4 days (+/- 1 day) before the day of BPD surgery (baseline-1 and baseline-2), at the day of surgery (day 0), every second day after surgery during the first week (immediate post surgery) as well as two and four weeks after surgery (post surgery-1 and post surgery-2). A deviation of +/- 2 days is allowed for the post surgery-1 and post surgery-2 visits.
All fasting samples are obtained in the morning after an overnight fast (12 h). Immediate post surgery (fasting) samples will be collected after 12 h rest from parenteral nutrition from the arm not used for nutritional substitution during the first 4 days after surgery (when parenteral nutrition is given). The immediate post surgery (fasting) samples obtained from day 5 and forward after surgery, when subjects have started to eat, will be obtained in the morning after an overnight fast (12 h). Nutrient stimulation samples will be obtained at baseline-1 and 2 and post surgery-1 and 2 after intake of a test meal. A complete list of all procedures for each visit is provided in Table 1 and an overview of all planned blood samples, including volumes and purpose is provided in Table 2. Motivations for the collection of various samples are provided under section 10.3.1 "Proteomics analysis, experimental design issues".
In case of discontinuation, additional subjects should be enrolled such that a complete set of samples from no less than 20 subjects can be obtained.

A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.
Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
THIAZOLES with two keto oxygens. Members are insulin-sensitizing agents which overcome INSULIN RESISTANCE by activation of the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma).
Rare autosomal recessive syndrome of extreme insulin resistance due to mutations in the binding domain of INSULIN RECEPTOR. Clinical features include severe intrauterine and postnatal growth restriction, characteristic dysmorphic FACIES; HIRSUTISM; VIRILIZATION; multiple endocrine abnormalities, and early death.
An insulin preparation that is designed to provide immediate and long term glycemic control in a single dosage. Biphasic insulin typically contains a mixture of REGULAR INSULIN or SHORT-ACTING INSULIN combined with a LONG-ACTING INSULIN.
