Aims The population of immigrants from the Middle East in Sweden show a higher prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared to native Swedes. The exact reason for this is unknown. Here, we have performed metabolite profiling to investigate these differences.
Aims Familial partial lipodystrophy (FPLD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, mostly due to mutations in lamin A (LMNA) or in peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARG) genes. In the present study, we aimed to identify and functionally characterize the genetic defect underlying FPLD in an Italian family presenting with several affected individuals in three consecutive generations.
To investigate the association of obesity measured by body mass index (BMI) versus pericardial fat volume (PFV) measured by multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) with coronary atherosclerotic markers (coronary artery calcium score (CAC), coronary stenosis severity and coronary plaque presence) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Among 496 patients with suspected coronary artery disease who underwent 64-slice MDCT angiography to exclude occlusive coronary artery disease, 102 patie...
Aims Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is released primarily from the proximal small intestine and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) from the more distal small intestine and colon. Their relative importance to the incretin effect in health has been contentious in the past, although it now appears that GIP has the dominant role. It is uncertain whether there is a relationship between GIP and GLP-1 secretion. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between plasma GIP and GLP-1 respons...
Aims Recent studies have suggested a possible association between microbiota and gestational diabetes (GDM). However, the results are inconsistent. Our objective was to investigate further the relationship between GDM and microbiota and verify the potential microbial marker.
Aim To analyse the expression of lncRNA-ANRIL and other related factors in different human body fluids, explore the clinical significance of ANRIL and validate whether ANRIL is interrelated with the renin–angiotensin system and NF-κB signalling pathway.

Aims Subcutaneous administration of insulin in patients suffering from diabetes is associated with the distress of daily injections. Among alternative administration routes, the oral route seems to be the most advantageous for long-term administration, also because the peptide undergoes a hepatic first-pass effect, contributing to the inhibition of the hepatic glucose output. Unfortunately, insulin oral administration has so far been hampered by degradation by gastrointestinal enzymes and poor i...

Aims To evaluate superficial capillary plexus (SCP), deep capillary plexus (DCP) and choriocapillaris (CC) perfusion in macular and near/mid periphery regions in diabetic patients using widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (WSS-OCTA).

Aims Nephropathic patients show higher levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and oxidized human serum albumin (HSAox) compared to healthy subjects. These two classes of compounds are formed as the result of oxidative insults; for this reason, they can be useful oxidative stress biomarkers. The present study examines the variation of AGEs and HSAox in hemodialysis (HD) patients before and after dialysis session, evaluating the impact of different dialytic techniques and filters on thei...
