Abstract Background Sclerostin inhibits bone formation and its expression is upregulated in the vasculature during the arterial calcification process as a counterregulatory mechanism preventing further calcification. Lower extremity arterial calcification (LEAC) is common in neuropathic patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Herein, we investigated for associations between plasma sclerostin levels and diabetic neuropathy as well as LEAC in subjects with T2DM. Methods A total of 74 individuals wit...

The scarcity of facemasks, particularly N95 respirators, combined with the lack of solid data to address the suitability of each mask type for adequate health care worker (HCW) protection have caused turmoil among HCWs. Current recommendations suggest mask usage solely during HCW contact with Covid-19 patients, namely plain medical mask for low-risk contacts and N95 for aerosol generating procedures. The distinction regarding the escalation of mask complexity depending on contact type is neverth...

BACKGROUND: In December 2019, a new coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has emerged from China causing pneumonia outbreaks first in the Wuhan region and currently worldwide. In the light of the lack of efficient and specific treatments and the need to contain the epidemic, drug repurposing appears to be the most efficient tool to find therapeutic solution. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to summarize in vitro data of current agents used for the ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is currently a steep rise in the global prevalence of obesity. Pharmaceutical therapy is a valuable component of conservative obesity therapy. Herein, medications currently in the phase of preclinical or clinical testing are reviewed, along with an overview of the mechanisms that regulate energy intake and expenditure. In addition, the current and potential future directions of obesity drug therapy are discussed. RECENT FINDINGS: Although the current arsenal of obesity p...

Abstract Objective To examine the effect of carbohydrate restriction in the morning in the frame of a hypocaloric Mediterranean diet on weight loss and metabolic parameters. Research Methods & Procedures Seventy overweight/obese individuals were randomized to two hypocaloric dietary regimens; one Mediterranean diet (Med-D) and one morning carbohydrate restriction diet (MCR-D). Participants assigned to the MCR-D were permitted to consume a breakfast low in carbohydrate content while typical Medit...

OBJECTIVE: Follistatin binds and inactivates activins, which are potent inhibitors of muscle growth and metabolism and are currently being developed for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). We have recently reported that follistatin is regulated by glucose (and not lipids) and can prospectively predict the metabolic improvements observed after bariatric surgery. We utilized novel assays herein to investigate whether activins are regulated by glucose or lipids, whether their circul...

: Endothelium plays an essential role in human homeostasis by regulating arterial blood pressure, distributing nutrients and hormones as well as providing a smooth surface that modulates coagulation, fibrinolysis and inflammation. Endothelial dysfunction is present in diabetes mellitus (DM) and contributes to the development and progression of macrovascular disease, while it is also associated with most of the microvascular complications such as diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy. ...

Abstract Bariatric surgery is currently the most effective therapeutic modality through which sustained beneficial effects on weight loss and metabolic improvement are achieved. During recent years, indications for bariatric surgery have been expanded to include cases of poorly controlled type 2 (T2DM) diabetes mellitus in lesser extremes of body weight. A spectrum of the beneficial effects of surgery is attributed to robust changes of postprandial gut peptide responses that are observed post op...
