    Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a thickening and hyperpigmentation of the skin commonly found on the neck, axilla, or groin and is generally caused by hyperinsulinemia, a consequence of insulin resistance associated with obesity. Insulin resistance is a primary risk factor for the development of...

    The article presents a study which evaluates whether Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is associated with increased basal and glucose-stimulated insulin levels in obese children. From the 145 obese children who have undergone a standard oral glucose tolerance test, 68 have AN condition characterized by...

    Background/Aim. Oxidative stress plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of various diseases. Recent reports indicate that obesity may induce systemic oxidative stress. The aim of the study was to potentiate oxidative stress as a factor which may aggravate peripheral insulin sensitivity and...

    The increasing prevalence of obesity is a fundamental contributor to the growing prevalence of the metabolic syndrome. Rexinoids, a class of compounds that selectively bind and activate RXR, are being studied as a potential option for the treatment of metabolic syndrome. These compounds have...

  • Variants in the CD36 Gene Locus Determine Whole-Body Adiposity, but Have No Independent Effect on Insulin Sensitivity. Heni, Martin; M�ssig, Karsten; Machicao, Fausto; Machann, J�rgen; Schick, Fritz; Claussen, Claus D.; Stefan, Norbert; Fritsche, Andreas; H�ring, Hans-Ulrich; Staiger, Harald // Obesity (19307381);May2011, Vol. 19 Issue 5, p1004 

    CD36 variants have been associated with type 2 diabetes, features of the metabolic syndrome, and alterations in lipid metabolism. In contrast, the effect of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CD36 on insulin resistance is controversial in literature. Therefore, we investigated whether...

    The article discusses the results of a study on the structure of metabolic syndrome (MetSy) and its components for prediction of type 2 diabetes. It states that inflammation and dyslipidemia factors were not independently related with the risk of diabetes. It says that the core perturbations...
