The "Lymphoscreen" study aims to characterize precisely (phenotypes/cytokines/functions) CD8+ T cell responses in type 1 Diabetes to identify biomarkers of the disease. Such markers are needed for refine type 1 Diabetes diagnosis/prognostic, and to design new therapeutic approaches targeting autoreactive CD8+ T cells. An original approach using DNA immunization of humanized mice allowed us to identify relevant CD8 epitopes derived from GAD65 and IA-2 beta cell autoantigens. The aims are: (i) identifying exhaustively epitopes recognized by autoreactive CD8+ T lymphocytes in type 1 Diabetes and following islet or pancreas graft in humans; (ii) identifying pathogenic CD8+ T cell patterns or profiles related to type 1 Diabetes pathogenesis and evolution; (iii) correlating CD8+ autoreactive T cell responses and autoantibody responses to new cellular (such as CD4+ T cells or peripheral cell miRNA) or humoral markers of the disease (such as serum miRNA).

The study is designed to test the safety, tolerability of a newly developed form of ketoconazole (DIO-902) for the treatment of elevated blood sugars in type 2 diabetes. This study also w...
Primary Objective: To measure the association between a parental history of diabetes and the odds of an offspring being Type 1 diabetics. Secondary Objectives: - To docum...
The purpose of this study is to study the effect of a liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide agonist, on post-meal blood glucose concentrations, glucagon levels, mean weekly blood sugars, an...
The purpose of this study is to measure alpha-synuclein in peripheral body tissues and fluids in Parkinson's disease (PD). This may help in developing better treatments for PD patients in ...
Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is one of the important instruments in diabetes management. Most patients with type 1 diabetes and patients with type 2 using insulin, frequently me...
To evaluate nutritional and metabolic parameters associated with vitamin D status and blood pressure (BP) in type 2 diabetes and hypertensive patients.
The aim of the present study was to conduct a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that investigated the effects of pioglitazone on blood leptin levels in patients with type 2 diabetes...
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are insulin resistant and have a lower exercise capacity than individuals without T2D.
While the use of incretins, including GLP-1 receptor agonists and PDD-IV inhibitors, is well established in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, many other aspects of these agents are yet to be discovere...
Type 2 diabetes is increasing worldwide, disproportionately affecting First Nations (FN) people. Identifying early-life determinants of type 2 diabetes is important to address the intergenerational bu...
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.
Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
