Microparticles (MPs) are vesicles less than one micron in diameter shed from the plasma membranes of cells that are injured, activated, or undergoing apoptosis. MPs are shed from several types of cells, and the cells of origin can be identified using combinations of antigenic markers. Platelet MPs, which play a role in coagulation and atherogenesis, are the most abundant MPs in the circulation. In vivo studies have demonstrated platelet MP levels to be higher in patients who have had acute ischemic stroke and in patients with greater degrees of retinopathy...

Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) such as N(epsilon)-(carboxymethyl)lysine (CML) have been implicated in the development and progression of diabetic nephropathy. The aim of the present study is to investigate AGE levels in patients with type 2 diabetes with special regard to the role of renal impairment. Serum and urine CML levels (using a newly developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), as well as serum AGE-fluorescence, were measured in 109 patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients were divided into groups with normal and impaired renal function...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) in adults is a global health problem, although its prevalence varies widely between different populations and the rate has generally increased worldwide. In Taiwan, the mortality rate from DM has almost doubled over the past 10 years. The prevalence of DM in Taiwan was established between 1985 and 1996 and the rates were between 4.9 and 9.2%. The prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) was 15.5% (men 15% and women 15.9%). The prevalence of DM and IGT increased significantly with age for both genders...

Nonenzymatic reactions between glucose and proteins yield advanced glycation end products (AGE) such as pentosidine. AGE accumulate in diabetic patients, alter the structure and function of tissue proteins, stimulate cellular response, and have thus been implicated in diabetic tissue damage. The present study was undertaken to assess the factors determining plasma total pentosidine level in diabetic patients and the possible relation between plasma pentosidine level and diabetic complications. In diabetic patients, including patients with renal failure, plasma pentosidine levels, assessed by HPLC assay, were correlated with serum creatinine (P < 0...

The risk of death by ischemic heart disease (IHD) in patients with diabetes mellitus is higher than in non-diabetics, and the average life span of the diabetics is shorter than in non-diabetics in Japan. There is no direct correlation between the occurrence of IHD and severity or glycemic control of diabetes. However, the mortality by IHD increases in diabetic patients with severe retinopathy and/or massive proteinuria. Regarding the management of IHD, diabetes is not considered a contraindication to thrombolytic therapy...
