Canakinumab is a fully human anti-interleukin-1β (anti-IL-1β) monoclonal antibody (IgG-1 class). Canakinumab is designed to bind to human IL-1β and to functionally neutralize the bioac...
This is a four month dose ranging study followed by a 24 to 48 month extension at the selected dose to characterize the safety and efficacy of the injectable IL-1B (interleukin 1, beta) a...
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of dutogliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who are receiving background treatment with pioglitazone.
The objective of the current study is to investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of BI 1356 (5 mg once daily) compared to placebo given for 24 weeks as add-on therapy to metformi...
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of dutogliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who are receiving background therapy of glimepiride with or without metform...
The aim of the research was to study the dynamics of neurologic disorders in the context of combined therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Fatigue is scarcely studied in type 1 diabetes (T1D), and the aims were to investigate its prevalence compared to the background population, potential associations, and to validate the Fatigue Questio...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) carries an elevated risk for cardiovascular disease. Here, we assessed alirocumab efficacy and safety in people with/without DM from five placebo-controlled phase 3 studies.
Children and adolescents with a family history of diabetes are at increased risk of overweight, but little is known about the potentially beneficial effects of physical activity on these children. The...
To assess the efficacy and safety profile of the dipeptidyl-peptidase-4 inhibitor sitagliptin in a population of self-identified Hispanic/Latino patients with type 2 diabetes.
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
Assistance in managing and monitoring drug therapy for patients receiving treatment for cancer or chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, consulting with patients and their families on the proper use of medication; conducting wellness and disease prevention programs to improve public health; overseeing medication use in a variety of settings.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
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.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
