The Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome and Its Associated Factors in an Urban City

Up to now, there has been to uniform case definition for the metabolic syndrome. The World Health Organization and the Third Report of the National Cholesterol Education Program's Adult Treatment Panel (ATP III), and Bureau of Health Promotion, Taiwan proposed different criteria for the metabolic syndrome. Therefore, the secondary objective ...

Phase N/A

The Role of Amylin and Incretins on Postprandial Metabolisms in Adolescents With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM).

Previously type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) was considered a disease of the adult; however, the incidence of T2DM in children is on the rise. Consequently, complications may occur at an earlier age, underscoring the importance of improving glycemic control in the pediatric population. Postprandial hyperglycemia contributes significantly to poor glycemic ...

Phase N/A

Side Effects of Antipsychotic Medications

Objectives: The use of atypical antipsychotics has been associated with increased weight gain, the development of type-2 diabetes, and, in rare cases, diabetic ketoacidosis. It is not clear if these changes are a direct function of antipsychotics on either insulin action or insulin secretion, or simply related to their ability ...

Phase N/A

11 -HSD1 and Metabolic Syndrome

The PPARgamma agonist rosiglitazone (R) increases insulin sensitivity, which is comparable to the effects of a reduction in 11ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) activity in animal models. We therefore aimed to investigate whether rosiglitazone-induced insulin sensitivity is associated with changes in 11β-HSD1 activity in different tissues in subjects suffering from ...


Study of the Effects of Muscular Activity on Iron Metabolism

Hemojuvelin has been described as interfering with hepcidin, a key regulator of iron homeostasis. Hemojuvelin is mainly produced by muscle, and the relationship between exercise and iron metabolism can be questioned about. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of muscular exercise on iron metabolism in healthy ...

Phase N/A

Role of p53 Gene in Metabolism Regulation in Patients With Li-Fraumeni Syndrome

We have previously reported that TP53 (encoding p53 protein), one of the most frequently mutated genes in human cancers, dose dependently modulates the balance between the utilization of oxidative and glycolytic pathways for energy generation in human colon cancer cells and mouse liver mitochondria. Though morphologically similar to their wild-type ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Pioglitazone Treatment on Sympathetic Nervous System Function in Metabolic Syndrome Obesity

The rapidly growing burden of obesity together with a population that is becoming older raises the importance of effective strategies for the primary prevention and treatment of the metabolic syndrome in order to combat the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and to reduce the increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Increased ...
