OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility of using human-specific insulin radioimmunoassay (Ins-RIA) kit to measure the concentrations of serum insulin in minipigs. METHODS: The Serum samples (219) of Bama minipigs were collected. The concentrations of serum insulin in Bama minipigs were measured by Ins-RIA kit and porcine-specific insulin enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (Ins-ELISA) kit, respectively. The linear regression analysis was undertaken in a randomly selected 175 samples (80% of total samples) to establish predictive equations between the concentrations of serum insulin measured by Ins-ELISA and the concentrations of serum insulin measured by Ins-RIA...

BACKGROUND: The growing body of evidence suggests that atherosclerosis risk factors are important in cognitive decline. OBJECTIVE: To analyse insulin sensitivity, insulin secretion capacity, plasma insulin, adiponectin and lipid levels in normoglycaemic, nonobese patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) (group A, n=62), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) (group B, n=41), and healthy controls (group C, n=25). METHOD: Insulin sensitivity was determined by euglycemic hyperinsulinaemic clamp (M value) and homeostasis model assessment (HOMA-IR), insulin secretion capacity by first-phase insulin response (FPIR), plasma insulin by RIA, adiponectin by ELISA, total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides by enzymatic method...

Women need multipurpose prevention products (MPTs) that protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and provide contraception. The Population Council has developed a prototype intravaginal ring (IVR) releasing the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) MIV-150 (M), zinc acetate (ZA), carrageenan (CG) and levonorgestrel (LNG) (MZCL IVR) to protect against HIV, HSV-2, HPV and unintended pregnancy. Our objective was to evaluate the anti-SHIV-RT activity of MZCL IVR in genital mucosa...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
