Insulin Sensitizers on Mitochondrial ATP Production and Mitochondrial ATP Production and Mitochondrial Protein Synthesis on Insulin Resistant Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

An association between insulin resistance and mitochondrial dysfunction has been observed in aging, T2D, and in offspring of patients with T2D. It remains to be determined whether pharmacological agents that enhance insulin sensitivity improve muscle mitochondrial function. If these insulin sensitizers improve muscle mitochondrial functions, there are potential therapeutic opportunities to use these drugs to improve mitochondrial dysfunction such as sarcopenia of aging or obe...

Targeting Mitochondrial Fusion and Fission to Prevent Atherosclerosis: Getting the Balance Right

Our preliminary data suggests that pharmacological inhibition of the mitochondrial fission protein, Drp1, reduced atherosclerotic plaque volume and attenuated macrophage accumulation within the plaque in an ApoE-/- mouse model of wire-induced carotid arterial injury. Furthermore, we hypothesize that modulation of mitochondrial morphology and metabolism with Drp1 inhibition prevents atherosclerosis by reducing monocyte activation and migration. In this research proposal, our ove...


Skeletal Muscle and Platelet Mitochondrial Dysfunction During Sepsis

The primary aim of the study is to demonstrate that mitochondrial dysfunction occurs in both skeletal muscle and circulating platelets of severely septic and septic shock ICU-admitted patients. Secondary aims are to clarify the pathogenesis and the clinical relevance of mitochondrial damage during sepsis.

The Effect of Arginine and Citrulline Supplementation on Endothelial Dysfunction in Mitochondrial Diseases

Mitochondrial diseases occur due to inadequate energy production. In addition, nitric oxide (NO) deficiency occurs in mitochondrial diseases. The endothelial layer of blood vessels functions in maintaining blood vessels patency through producing NO which relaxes vascular smooth muscles and therefore maintains the patency of blood vessels and adequate blood perfusion. In mitochondrial diseases, endothelial cells fail to perform their normal function in maintaining the patency of...

In and ex Vivo Mitochondrial Function of the Heart

It has been suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction might play a role in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. From animal studies, it has been suggested that an altered PPAR and PGC1 expression is involved in the reduced cardiac mitochondrial function, however human data on cardiac mitochondrial function and PPAR regulation is scarce. The latter is due to the fact that there is no validated measurement for assessing cardiac mitochondrial function non-invasively in vivo....

Mitochondria and Chronic Kidney Disease

The overarching goal of this study is to determine the role of chronic kidney disease and the activation of the kallikrein-kinin system during hemodialysis on the development of mitochondrial dysfunction; the investigators will measure mitochondrial function using the gold standard method, 31-phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The investigators will test the hypothesis that endogenous bradykinin promotes mitochondrial dysfunction in patients undergoing hemodialysis. T...

Intensive Exercise to Improve Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Pediatric Obesity

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are occurring at epidemic rates in the United States and worldwide. The global burden of diabetes is estimated to double over the next 25 years. Obese children are at risk for the development of insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The prevention of type 2 DM is hindered by the lack of a non-invasive predictive test, knowledge as to individual risk and effective preventative measures. There is increasin...

Study On the Role of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in the Pathogenesis of Metformin-associated Lactic Acidosis

Metformin is the first line drug of choice for the treatment of type II diabetes. Lactic acidosis can develop as a side effect, especially when renal failure leads to drug accumulation. Lactic acidosis is usually attributed to an abnormal inhibition of hepatic lactate clearance. Growing evidence suggest that metformin can dose-dependently inhibit hepatocyte mitochondrial function. Whether a similar effect occurs in extra-hepatic human tissues remains unknown. The ...

Multiple Sclerosis: The Role of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in IR Resistance

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) and is one of the most common neurological diseases, often leading to disability of the patients. The MS pathogenesis includes vascular and inflammatory components, however recently also the role of mitochondrial dysfunction being a hot topic in neurodegeneration.

Pilot Study of Mitochondrial Biology in Human Platelets

Type II diabetes mellitus is rapidly becoming a global pandemic with a deleterious impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Understanding its pathophysiology is important for the development of future therapeutic interventions. Emerging evidence suggests interplay between mitochondrial dysfunction and the development of insulin resistance. Interestingly, mitochondrial dysfunction in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue are early events in the development of type II diabe...

Pilot Study of Lovaza (Omega 3 Fatty Acids) to Improve Heart Function in Patients With Mitral Valve Disease

In the absence of treatment, severe mitral valve regurgitation (MR) results in left atrium (LA) dilatation and hypertrophy, followed ultimately by left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure. One promising intervention for the prevention of the deleterious effects of pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure is dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). However, the molecular targets and mechanisms by which n-3 PUFAs exert t...

Mitochondria in HIV and Aging (MITO+)

Older adults with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and a long history of antiretroviral therapy have more mitochondrial dysfunction- the cells that help them make energy. This dysfunction in mitochondria may lead to symptoms of muscle fatigue, physical function impairment, and impaired exercise tolerance compared to HIV-uninfected controls of a similar age and body mass index (BMI). Furthermore, the investigators hypothesize that the older antiretroviral therapy (ART) of teno...

Safety and Tolerability of the Ketogenic Diet in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Can what you eat alter the progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)? We propose that the answer may be yes. Mitochondrial dysfunction may play a pivotal role in the death of motor neurons in ALS. Ketones, generated from ketogenic diets, can overcome certain types of mitochondrial dysfunction and in doing so, help restore the motor neuron to better health and thereby slow or stop the disease progression. The primary aim of our study is to prove that ketogenic diets are...
