AbstractAbstract PDF
The global obesity epidemic and the growing elderly population largely contribute to the increasing incidence of type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance acts as a critical link between the present obesity pandemic and type 2 diabetes. Naturally occurring reactive oxygen species (ROS) regulate intracellular signaling and are kept in balance by the antioxidant system. However, the imbalance between ROS production and antioxidant capacity causes ROS accumulation and induces oxidative stress. Oxidative stress interrupts insulin-mediated intracellular signaling pathways, as supported by studies involving genetic modification of antioxidant enzymes in experimental rodents. In addition, a close association between oxidative stress and insulin resistance has been reported in numerous human studies. However, the controversial results with the use of antioxidants in type 2 diabetes raise the question of whether oxidative stress plays a critical role in insulin resistance. In this review article, we discuss the relevance of oxidative stress to insulin resistance based on genetically modified animal models and human trials.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Secondary systemic (AA) amyloidosis is a severe complication of progressed Crohn disease (CD) characterized by the deposition of amyloid A in body organs and tissues. Various therapeutic approaches have been recommended, however there is still no effective treatment. Recently, several case reports have demonstrated the effects of anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha therapy in patients with AA amyloidosis associated with CD. We report on a 35-year-old female patient with CD complicated by AA amyloidosis in the gastrointestinal tract and renal involvement, who was treated with infliximab. The infliximab therapy improved the gastrointestinal symptoms and decreased the serum creatinine.
