Results Compared with the normal control group,the blood glucose,HbA1c,triglyceride,total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol in the diabetic control group and diabetic with benazepril group were significantly increased(P<0.05),and high density lipoprotein cholesterol significantly decreased(P<0.05),while there were no such differences between the diabetic control group and diabetic with benazepril group(P>0.05).
The kidney to body weight ratio,24 h urinary protein excretion and RAGE mRNA level in the diabetic with benazepril group were significantly higher than those in the normal control group(P<0.05),and lower than those in the diabetic control group(P<0.05).

Results: The plasma levels of ADM,ET and AngⅡ were significantly lower in diabetic patients with DF than in the simple diabetic patients and the normal control subjects(P<0.01). The serum levels of NO were decreased in the diabetic patients with DF group(P<0.05).
(3)Compared with control subjects(98.60±56.18),DI of MS with and without IR groups both significantly decreased(respectively 39.69±29.35 and 57.49±30.62),and the differences between every two of them were significant(P<0.01).
(4)DI of control subjects,normal glucose tolerance subjects of MS without IR group(66.49±30.06) and hyperglycemic patients of MS without IR group(45.14±26.98)decreased in order,and the differences between every two of them were also significant(P<0.01).
The expression of EPCR mRNA was significantly higher in SLE patients[(132.5±32.6)mg/L] and LN patients(201±33.5 mg/L)than that in normal controls(88.6±29.5 mg/L),and it existed obvious differences between in SLE patients and LN patients(P<0.005).
Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in adiponectin gene were found in Chinese Han of Jinan district. SNP45 was closely correlated with type 2 DM, and the frequency of T/T genotype in type 2 diabetics was significanly higher than those in obese subjects and normal controls ( both P＜0.01).
Methods Bone mineral density was observed using dual-energy X-ray absorption metry in 124 cases with hyperthyroidism and 60 normal controls, in addition, their serum FT3, FT4, TSH, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), ostecocalcin (BGP), urina deoxy pydidioline (D-pyd) and hydroxyproline(HOP) level were measured as well.
Doses ranging from 12.5-50 μM provided a dose-dependent reduction in the number of viable cells when compared to controls.
In this paper, the boundary stabilization of the Timoshenko equation of a nonuniform beam, with clamped boundary condition at one end and with bending moment and shear force controls at the other end, is considered.
It is proved that the system is exponentially stabilizable when the bending moment and shear force controls are simultaneously applied.
anastomosis larvae, i.e., after feeding on the leaves treated with alkaloid, the larvae lost their weight, weight gain, and relative growth rate (RGR) significantly when compared with the controls.
In the second day after treatment with the dose at 10 mg/mL of the alkaloid, the RGR reduced by 39.8%, and the food intake and the feces weight were respectively 57.7% and 57.4% of the controls.
At the same time, 12 patients with cholelithiasis or liver hemangioma who underwent operation served as normal control group.
Mice were divided randomly into four groups as follows: (1) normal control group; (2) heat stress pretreated subsequent to ischemia/reperfusion group (HS/IR); (3) ischemia/reperfusion group (IR); and (4) heat stress group (HS).
In this respect, total serum LDH and its isoenzyme pattern in conjunction with serum GPT, GOT, CPK, and HBDH were assayed in cases suffering from PEM and compared with normal control group.
All haemorheological parameters with the exception of the haematocrit were pathological when compared with values obtained from a normal control group.
The mean loge coefficient of variation of 100 R-R intervals was significantly reduced in groups with Parkinson's disease, spinocerebellar degeneration, Shy-Drager syndrome and diabetes mellitus, compared with a normal control group.
Study subjects were divided into three groups: subjects in group 1 were microalbuminuric diabetic (n = 33), in group 2 subjects were normoalbuminuric diabetic group (n = 32), and group 3 was formed from nondiabetic healthy control subjects (n = 18).
We studied 32 cirrhotic patients (12 females and 20 males) aged 45 ± 11 years and 32 control subjects (12 females and 20 males) aged 39 ± 9 years.
It was shown that the mental efficiency and health status in polyethylene casters are suppressed in comparison with control subjects having no contact with the chemical substances.
The errors of discrimination between schizophrenics and control subjects (a low-risk group) and between the low-risk group and sibs (a high-risk group) ranged from 7 to 19%.
Blood (BV), plasma (PV), and erythrocyte suspension (ESV) viscosities; fibrinogen; total cholesterol (Ch); low density lipoprotein (LDL) Ch; and plasminogen activity were lower in the athletes than in control subjects (N = 10).
The expression of ADM was detected using immunohistochemical staining in specimens from 15 normal controls, 28 cases of uterine leiomyoma (LE) and 19 cases of uterine leiomyosarcoma (LES).
The titers of anti-plasminogen autoantibodies of the IgG class were elevated in these patients compared with normal controls.
A comparative analysis of allele and genotype distribution of polymorphic markers Val762Ala and Leu54Phe of ADPRT1 gene encoding poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase1 has been performed in chronic glomerulonephritis patients compared to normal controls.
Methods: Twelve eight-week-old SHR were randomized into atorvastatin treated group (ATV group,n=6) and distilled water group (DW group,n=6); Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) were used as normal controls.
Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) of 35 patients with MCI and 34 normal controls revealed that the scores of MCI patients did not differ significantly from those of normal controls (P>amp;gt;0.05).
