The adverse long-term effects of diabetes mellitus have been well described and involve many organ systems. While diabetes management has largely focused on control of hyperglycemia, the presence of abnormalities of angiogenesis may cause or contribute to many of the clinical manifestations of diabetes. When compared with non-diabetic subjects, diabetics demonstrate vascular abnormalities of the retina, kidneys, and fetus. Diabetics have impaired wound healing, increased risk of rejection of transplanted organs, and impaired formation of coronary collaterals. In each of these conditions, and possibly in diabetic neuropathy as well, abnormalities of angiogenesis can be implicated in the pathogenesis. A perplexing feature of the aberrant angiogenesis is that excessive and insufficient angiogenesis can occur in different organs in the same individual. In this review, the clinical features, molecular mechanisms, and potential therapeutic options of abnormal angiogenesis in diabetes will be reviewed. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Although protein kinase C (PKC) activation is required for endothelial cell (EC) growth, migration, adhesion, and vessel formation, the role of individual PKC isoenzymes in these events is not defined. Because PKCα has been previously linked with enhanced EC migration and response to angiogenic growth factors, we characterized a specific phosphorothioate-modified 21-mer antisense PKCα (AS-PKCα). AS-PKCα (500 nmol/L) prevented the expression of PKCα protein by 90% in human ECs and did not reduce ...

A large body of evidence in animal models of ischemia shows that administration of angiogenic growth factors, either as recombinant protein or by gene transfer, can augment nutrient perfusion through neovascularization. Many cytokines have angiogenic activity; those that have been best studied in animal models and clinical trials are vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF). Clinical trials of therapeutic angiogenesis in patients with end-stage coronary artery...

Abstract Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are generated during long term diabetes and are correlated with the development of diabetic complications, such as retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is characterized by an increased retinal neovascularization due to the action of the angiogenic factor, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). In this report, we show that injection of insulin and glycated albumin (Alb-AGE) to mice increases VEGF mRNA expression in eyes. Insulin and Alb-AGE stimula...

The influence of preexisting diabetes mellitus (DM) on outcome after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) has not been well defined. The objective of our study was to compare the morbidity and mortality after OLT in 57 patients with preexisting DM (3 type I, 54 type II) with 114 age-, sex-, and race-matched patients without DM (case controls). The demographics were similar in both groups. Pretransplantation serum creatinine was significantly higher in the diabetic group compared with case cont...

Abstract Diabetic nephropathy is characterized functionally by glomerular hyperfiltration and albuminuria and histologically by the expansion of glomerular mesangium. We and others have found that protein kinase C (PKC) is activated through an increase in de novo synthesis of diacylglycerol (DAG) from glucose in glomerular mesangial cells cultured under high glucose conditions and in glomeruli of diabetic rats. The activation of PKC could activate further various intracellular signal transductio...

Background It is unknown whether either the angiotensin-II–receptor blocker irbesartan or the calcium-channel blocker amlodipine slows the progression of nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes independently of its capacity to lower the systemic blood pressure. Methods We randomly assigned 1715 hypertensive patients with nephropathy due to type 2 diabetes to treatment with irbesartan (300 mg daily), amlodipine (10 mg daily), or placebo. The target blood pressure was 135/85 mm Hg or less in ...

The prevalence of end-stage renal disease is increasing at an alarming rate. In 2000, chronic kidney failure developed in over 90,000 people in the United States; the current population of patients on dialysis numbers about 300,000, and 80,000 patients are living with transplanted kidneys. Both the prevalence and the incidence of end-stage renal disease are approximately twice what they were 10 years ago.1 Indeed, in 2000, the number of patients with newly diagnosed renal failure exceeded the nu...

Following injury, the oral mucosa undergoes complex sequences of biological healing processes to restore homeostasis. While general similarities exist, there are marked differences in the genomics and kinetics of wound healing between the oral cavity and cutaneous skin. The lack of successful therapy for oral mucosal wounds has influenced clinicians to explore alternative treatments and potential autotherapies to enhance intraoral healing. The present in-depth review discusses current gold stand...

Nowadays, there has been an increase in the number of people with chronic wounds, which has resulted in serious health problems worldwide. The rate-limiting stage of chronic wound healing has been found to be the inflammation stage, and strategies for shortening the prolonged inflammatory response have proven to be effective for increasing the healing rate. Recently, various anti-inflammatory strategies (such as anti-inflammatory drugs, antioxidant, NO regulation, antibacterial, immune regulatio...

This review aims to summarize the health benefits of exposure to hypoxic conditions during exercise in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Exposure to hypoxic conditions during exercise training positively changes the physiological response in healthy subjects. Exposure to hypoxic conditions during exercise could markedly increase skeletal muscle glucose uptake compared to that in normoxic conditions. Furthermore, post-exercise insulin sensitivity of T2DM patients increases more when ...

The endothelial cell response to glucose plays an important role in both health and disease. Endothelial glucose-induced dysfunction was first studied in diabetic animal models and in cells cultured in hyperglycemia. Four classical dysfunction pathways were identified, which were later shown to result from the common mechanism of mitochondrial superoxide overproduction. More recently, non-coding RNA, extracellular vesicles, and sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors were shown to affect gluco...

For over a decade, diabetic neuropathy has exhibited great emergence in diabetic patients. Though there are numerous impediments in understanding the underlying pathology it is not that enough to conclude. Initially, there was no intricate protocol for diagnosis as its symptoms mimic most of the neurodegenerative disorders and demyelinating diseases. Continuous research on this, reveals many pathological correlates which are also detectable clinically. The most important pathologic manifestation...

Diabetes is a devastating global health problem and is considered a predisposing factor for lung injury progression. Furthermore, previous reports of the authors revealed the role of mediastinal fat-associated lymphoid clusters (MFALCs) in advancing respiratory diseases. However, no reports concerning the role of MFALCs on the development of lung injury in diabetes have been published. Therefore, this study aimed to examine the correlations between diabetes and the development of MFALCs and the ...
