"Diabetes type I"

Patrick Goetti, Nicolas Gallusser, Olivier Borens
Diabetic osteoarthropathy is a rare cause of neuropathic joint disease of the knee; bilateral involvement is even more exceptional. Diagnosis is often made late due to its unspecific symptoms and appropriate surgical management still needs to be defined, due to lack of evidence because of the disease's low incidence. We report the case of a forty-year-old woman with history of diabetes type I who developed bilateral destructive Charcot knee arthropathy. Bilateral total knee arthroplasty was performed in order to achieve maximal functional outcome...

BACKGROUND: Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is thought to involve chronic inflammation, which is manifested by the activation and expression of different inflammatory mediators. Th1- and Th17-associated cytokines are factors that have been shown to exert profound pro-inflammatory activities and have been implicated in the pathogenesis of T1D in mice and humans. OBJECTIVES: Therefore, the aim of this case control study was to determine the serum level of IL-17, IL-21, IL-27, transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), and IFN-γ and their reciprocal relationship in Iranian T1D patients...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to implement an intensive and practical diabetes education program (DEP) and evaluate its long-term effects and its impact on psychosocial variables. It was hypothesized that the DEP would improve patients' metabolic control (A1c hemoglobin - HbA1c), technical knowledge, self-efficacy and frequency of self-care and decrease barriers and other parameters such as the body mass index (BMI) and LDL cholesterol. These results should be maintained at one-year follow-up...

Medical uses of Cannabis sativa have been known for over 6,000 years. Nowadays, cannabis is mostly known for its psychotropic effects and its ability to relieve pain, even though there is evidence of cannabis use for autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis centuries ago. The pharmacological therapy in autoimmune diseases is mainly based on immunosuppression of diffefent axes of the immune system while many of the drugs have major side effects. In this review we set out to examine the rule of Cannabis sativa as an immunomodulator and its potential as a new treatment option...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes is today a major public health concern in terms of its financial and social burden. Previous studies have revealed that specialist care for patients with diabetes leads to more positive outcomes than care by general practitioners (GPs) alone. The aim of this study was to estimate the determinants of endocrinologist consultation by patients with diabetes. METHODS: We used a two-part model to explore both the decision to consult and the frequency of consultations...

Diabetes (Type I and Type II) which affects nearly every organ in the body is a multi-factorial non-communicable disorder. Hyperglycemia is the most characteristic feature of this disease. Loss of beta cells is common in both types of diabetes whose detailed cellular and molecular mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. As this disease is complex, identification of specific biomarkers for its early detection, management and devising new therapies is challenging. Based on the fact that functionally defective proteins provide the biochemical basis for many diseases, in this study, we tried to identify differentially expressed proteins during hyperglycemia...

The present study investigated the neuropathic pain, anti-neuroinflammatory and neuroprotective properties of a pyranocoumarin derivative (anomalin) in in vivo and in vitro models. An in vivo streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic neuropathic pain model demonstrated that anomalin significantly suppressed neuropathic pain in mice. To identify the molecular mechanism of the anti-neuropathic pain activity of anomalin, sodium-nitroprusside (SNP)-induced neuroinflammation in neuro-2a (N2a) cells was further investigated in signaling pathways...

Plant secondary metabolites are an underutilized pool of bioactive molecules for applications in the food, pharma and nutritional industries. One such molecule is fisetin, which is present in many fruits and vegetables and has several potential health benefits, including anti-cancer, anti-viral and anti-aging activity. Moreover, fisetin has recently been shown to prevent Alzheimer's disease in mice and to prevent complications associated with diabetes type I. Thus far the biosynthetic pathway of fisetin in plants remains elusive...

One of the major obstacles needed to be overcome before using cell therapy for clinical purposes is the high probability of tumor formation in patients who receive the transplants, as undifferentiated stem cells (SCs) have the potential to form teratomas/teratocarcinoma in xenotransplants. In this study the ability of dendrosomal nanocurcumin (solublized curcumin using a biodegradable non-toxic nano-carrier) to affect undifferentiated/hazardous cell, and hence increasing the safety of cell therapy (particularly in diabetes type I) by mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) was examined...

Cognitive decline is well known to be connected to diabetes in presence of repetitive hyper- as well as hypoglycemia. At the Memory Clinic at CSK, Kristianstad, we have observed over 40 patients with cognitive decline and diabetes type I and II. Cognitive dysfunction seems to affect both compliance and the glucose levels. In collaboration with the diabetes unit at the Medicine Clinic, CSK, guidelines have been developed to aid early discovery of cognitive decline and adapted interventions aiming for optimal independence at home and at work...

Restoration of beta cell functional activity is a cracial in diabetes type I treatment. Earlier, we have shown that embryonal antitumor modulator, created by prof. L. Mkrtchyan (EATM), expresses protective activity in rat diabetes model. In the present study, we sought to evaluate whether EATM directly acts on beta cell and protects them from streptozotocin (STZ) induced damage in primary mouse and human pancreatic beta cell cultures. Beta cells were isolated by treatment of whole pancreas (mouse) or piece of pancreatic tissue (human) with collagenase and trypsine...

Stress proteins or heat shock proteins (HSPs) have a critical role in gut health and immune regulation. They have a functional significance as molecular chaperones for cell skeleton proteins and intercellular tight junction proteins. Herewith HSPs ensure gut epithelium integrity and effective intestinal barrier function. In addition, stress protein molecules such as HSP70 are a target for anti-inflammatory regulatory T cells (Tregs). Inflamed sites in the body feature inflammatory-stress induced enhanced levels of HSPs, which enable the immune system to target Tregs selectively to sites of inflammation...

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) causes Johne's disease, a chronic granulomatous enteritis in ruminants. Furthermore, infections of humans with MAP have been reported and a possible association with Crohn's disease and diabetes type I is currently discussed. MAP owns large sequence polymorphisms (LSPs) that were exclusively found in this mycobacteria species. The relevance of these LSPs in the pathobiology of MAP is still unclear. The mptD gene (MAP3733c) of MAP belongs to a small group of functionally uncharacterized genes, which are not present in any other sequenced mycobacteria species...

Stiffness of live cardiomyocytes isolated from control and diabetic mice was measured using the atomic force microscopy nanoindentation method. Type 1 diabetes was induced in mice by streptozotocin administration. Histological images of myocardium from mice that were diabetic for 3 mo showed disorderly lineup of myocardial cells, irregularly sized cell nuclei, and fragmented and disordered myocardial fibers with interstitial collagen accumulation. Phalloidin-stained cardiomyocytes isolated from diabetic mice showed altered (i...
