    Insulin is an anabolic hormone that plays key roles in glucose metabolism. Insulin resistance is a decreased biological response to normal concentration of circulating insulin. In insulin resistance, normal amounts of insulin are inadequate to produce a normal insulin response from fat, muscle...

    Because insulin resistance is inevitably associated with cardiovascular complications, there is a need to further investigate the potential involvement of oxidative stress and the cyclo-oxygenase (COX) pathway in the vascular modifications associated to this pathological context. Endothelial...

    Since vascular complications often accompany diabetes, we examined the influence of the endothelial lining on vascular reactivity in Psammomys obesus, a desert gerbil that acquires insulin resistance and diabetes when exposed to a laboratory diet. Vasoconstriction to phenylephrine and...

    Acquired generalized lipodystrophy (AGL) presents a major therapeutic challenge due to severe insulin resistance and hypertriglyceridemia. Several studies have demonstrated the dramatic clinical improvement seen with the administration of recombinant leptin for generalized lipodystrophy. Rarely,...

    Background:Hypertriglyceridemia is associated with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome. Membrane glycoprotein PC-1 (also termed ENPP1) is a direct insulin receptor inhibitor, and certain polymorphisms of the ENPP1/PC-1gene have been associated with insulin resistance,...

    Objectives: There are few studies reporting lipid proile in cystic ibrosis (CF) and most of them are in adult Caucasians. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the lipid proile of racially admixtured youths with CF. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional survey conducted between...
