Highlights

  • Diabetes Mellitus and the Cardiovascular System

    Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an epidemic which affects close to 100 million patients worldwide; the majority being type 2 diabetes mellitus. The rising incidence has resulted in a proportional increase in the frequency of cardiovascular disease attributable to DM, as revealed by various population-based studies.

  • Myelolipomatous Adrenal Adenoma and Adrenal Scintigraphy

    Adrenal myelolipomas are usually benign and non-functioning masses. On the other hand, adrenal myelolipomatous adenoma that may mimic adrenal myelolipoma on conventional imaging may be a rare cause of subclinical Cushing’s disease.

  • Autonomic Diabetic Neuropathy Impairs Glucose and Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibitor-Regulated Glucagon Concentration in Type 1 Diabetic Patients

    ipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4i) could exert their glucagonostatic action through a functional autonomic nervous system independently from insulin secretion.

Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors for Heart Failure

In this issue (P94), Kutoh reports type 2 diabetic patients who showed changes in cardiac function which is concomitant with changes in ketone bodies by using one of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i), tofogliflozin [1], proposing a possible mechanism for SGLT2i-mediated prevention of heart failure.

MicroRNAs Responsible for Inflammation in Obesity

In recent years, more and more evidence has accumulated to elucidate the modulating roles of microRNA in immune and inflammatory system. We conducted a novel positional omics integration study to identify microRNAs that could shed further light on the possible links between microRNAs, adipose tissue immunity/inflammation and obesity. In this study, we applied a new method of positional integrational analysis of different OMIC-layers and utilized an additional validation step through weighing. Full Text

Teriparatide Prevented Near Atypical Femur Fracture by Reducing Cortical Thickening in a Symptomatic Patient With Prolonged Use of Oral Bisphosphonate: A Case Report
Long-term bisphosphonate (BP) treatment is associated with adverse event of atypical femur fracture (AFF) due to their long-lasting unique bone-seeking properties, and subsequent uptake by osteoclasts results in sustained inhibition of bone resorption even after their cessation. We report a case of postmenopausal women who presented with pain and severe femoral cortical thickening on alendronate for 10 years, but with no signs of obvious radiolucent fracture line on radiograph and bone marrow edema on magnetic resonance imaging representing impending AFF.
