Diabetes mellitus is characterized by abnormal glucose and lipid metabolism, and subsequent hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia, which results from defects in pancreatic beta islets insulin secretion and/or decreased insulin sensitivity in metabolically active organs (i.e. liver, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue). Accumulating evidence highlights a critical role for the adenosine system in the regulation of insulin and glucose homeostasis and the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Adenosine is a key diverse extracellular signaling molecule that regulates several aspects of tissue function by activating four G-protein-coupled receptors (i...

Obesity is a growing problem worldwide and disorders associated with excess body fat including the metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), cardiovascular disease and malignant neoplasms are becoming a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Over the past decade, a vast amount of research has furthered our understanding of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; however, only recently pancreatic fat infiltration is coming to the forefront of investigation. Termed non-alcoholic fatty pancreas disease (NAFPD), it is becoming evident that it has important associations with other diseases of obesity...

BACKGROUND: Lysinuric protein intolerance (LPI) is a rare metabolic disease resulting from recessive-inherited mutations in the SLC7A7 gene encoding the cationic amino-acids transporter subunit y(+)LAT1. The disease is characterised by protein-rich food intolerance with secondary urea cycle disorder, but symptoms are heterogeneous ranging from infiltrative lung disease, kidney failure to auto-immune complications. This retrospective study of all cases treated at Necker Hospital (Paris, France) since 1977 describes LPI in both children and adults in order to improve therapeutic management...

INTRODUCTION: Diabetes mellitus (DM), a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycaemia, associated with deficiency or resistance to insulin indicates endocrinal abnormality of the pancreas. Amylase and lipase are enzymes secreted by the exocrine portion of the pancreas. Endocrinal derangement observed in diabetes may interfere with the exocrine function of the pancreas. AIM: To estimate the levels of fasting blood sugar, serum lipase, serum amylase in patients of type 1 and type 2 DM...

Reactive species are produced in biological system because of redox reactions. The imbalance in pro-oxidant and antioxidant homeostasis leads to the production of toxic reactive oxygen and nitrogen species like hydrogen peroxide, organic peroxides, hydroxyl radicals, superoxide anion and nitric oxide. Inactivation of metabolic enzymes, oxidation of biomolecules and cellular damage are some of the prominent characteristics of reactive species. Similarly, oxidative stress has been associated with more than one hundred (100) pathologies such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, pancreatic and liver diseases, joint disorders, cardiac fibrosis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, neurological diseases (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington's disorder, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease), ageing and cancer etc...

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by hyperglycaemia, and predicted by the World Health Organization as the expected 7th leading cause of death in 2030. Diabetes mellitus type 2 (DMT2) comprises the majority of diabetic individuals around the world (90%-95%). Pathophysiologically, this disorder results from a deregulation of glucose homeostasis, worsened by overweight and by a sedentary lifestyle, culminating in life-threatening cardiovascular events. The currently available anti-diabetic drugs are not devoid of undesirable side effects, sometimes responsible for poor therapeutic compliance...

Diabetes mellitus is the most common metabolic disorder in children and adolescents. Optimal control of blood glucose concentration is essential to prevent acute and diabetic long-term complications. The options to treat diabetes have clearly improved over the last decades, however, to date neither type 1 diabetes nor type 2 diabetes mellitus can be cured. Therefore, diabetes research aims at developing β-cell protective agents that prevent or even reverse diabetes onset. N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) are glutamate-gated ion channels that are widely expressed in the central nervous system (CNS) where they hold central roles in CNS function...

Acute recurrent pancreatitis is not common in children. The epidemiology, etiology and clinical presentation of pediatric acute recurrent pancreatitis are not well understood. The etiology is diverse and multifactorial, with many cases being idiopathic. The most common etiology of acute recurrent pancreatitis in children are genetic factors, biliary duct disorders, anatomic anomalies of the pancreatobiliary system and metabolic diseases. Mutations are most commonly found in the cationic trypsynogen gene (PRSS1), the pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor gene (SPINK1) and the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene (CFTR)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Low-grade inflammation persists in patients with acute pancreatitis (AP) after hospital discharge, and is linked to metabolic disorders. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is well recognized as an important mediator of inflammation in these patients but the role of the other two structurally similar peptides, pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and peptide YY (PYY), in inflammation has been sparsely investigated. The aim was to investigate the association between PYY, PP, NPY and circulating levels of innate cytokines in patients after AP...

Pancreatic β cells are functionally programmed to release insulin in response to changes in plasma glucose concentration. Insulin secretion is precisely regulated so that, under normal physiological conditions, fasting plasma glucose concentrations are kept within a narrow range of 3·5-5·5 mmol/L. In hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia, insulin secretion becomes dysregulated (ie, uncoupled from glucose metabolism) so that insulin secretion persists in the presence of low plasma glucose concentrations. Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia is the most common cause of severe and persistent hypoglycaemia in neonates and children...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common heterogeneous disorder that appears to have its origins during the peripubertal years. The diagnostic conundrum is that the typical clinical features, irregular menses and acne, occur during normal female puberty. Understanding the physiologic origins and molecular basis of the dysregulated hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in PCOS is fundamental to interrupting the distinctive vicious cycle of hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation...

Ribonucleic acids (RNAs) are very complex and their all functions have yet to be fully clarified. Noncoding genes (noncoding RNA, sequences, and pseudogenes) comprise 67% of all genes and they are represented by housekeeping noncoding RNAs (transfer RNA (tRNA), ribosomal RNA (rRNA), small nuclear RNA (snRNA), and small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA)) that are engaged in basic cellular processes and by regulatory noncoding RNA (short and long noncoding RNA (ncRNA)) that are important for gene expression/transcript stability...

BACKGROUND: The exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (Epac), which is primarily involved in cAMP signaling, has been known to be essential for controlling body energy metabolism. Epac has two isoforms: Epac1 and Epac2. The function of Epac1 on obesity was unveiled using Epac1 knockout (KO) mice. However, the role of Epac2 in obesity remains unclear. METHODS: To evaluate the role of Epac2 in obesity, we used Epac2a KO mice, which is dominantly expressed in neurons and endocrine tissues...

Insulin resistance is a major metabolic abnormality in a large majority of patients with type II diabetes. Bromodomain-containing protein 2 (Brd2), a transcriptional co-activator/co-repressor with switch mating type/sucrose non-fermenting (SWI/SNF)-like functions that regulates chromatin, suppresses adipocyte differentiation and regulates pancreatic β-cell biology. However, the effects of Brd2 on insulin resistance remain unknown. Here, overexpression of Brd2 in white adipose tissue of wild-type (WT) mice led to insulin resistance...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and osteoporosis are two major disorders which prevalence increases with aging and is predicted to worsen in the coming years. Preclinical investigations suggest common mechanisms implicated in the pathogenesis of both disorders. Recent evidence has established that there is a clear link between glucose and bone metabolism. The emergence of bone as an endocrine regulator through FGF23 and osteocalcin has led to the re-evaluation of the role of bone cells and bone-derived factors in the development of metabolic diseases such as T2DM...

Diabetes affects over 350 million people worldwide, with the figure projected to rise to nearly 500 million over the next 20 years, according to the World Health Organization. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type 1 diabetes) is an endocrine disorder caused by an autoimmune reaction that destroys insulin-producing β-cells in the pancreas, which leads to insulin deficiency. Administration of exogenous insulin remains at the moment the treatment mainstay. This approach helps to regulate blood glucose levels and significantly increases the life expectancy of patients...
