BACKGROUND
PAD-SEARCH (Peripheral Arterial Disease-Screening and Evaluation of diabetic patients in Asian Regions Characterized by High risk factors) is the first international study to investigate the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in Asian type 2 diabetic patients and to demonstrate the relationships between the putative risk factors and PAD in this population. METHODS: A total of 6,625 type 2 diabetic patients (2,873 males and 3,752 females aged 50 and older) were enrolled in PAD-SEARCH in Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines from October 2003 to March 2004. The Fukuda vascular profile VS-1000(TM) was used to determine the ankle-brachial index (ABI) and the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV). RESULTS: The mean patient age was 63.7 +/- 8.2 years and the mean duration of diabetes was 10.3 +/- 8.0 years. 1,172 (17.7%) subjects were diagnosed as PAD by the ABI (< or = 0.9). Subjects with PAD had a significantly longer duration of diabetes or hypertension, a higher HbA1c level and a significantly lower mean BMI than did the non-PAD subjects. In terms of the lipid profiles, triglyceride was the only significant variable. Notably, the mean ABI and baPWV in the females were significantly poorer than the age matched males for the in subjects with a normal ABI. However, the mean ABI and baPWV in males were significantly poorer than those of the age matched females for the subjects with PAD. On the multivariate analysis, gender, age, BMI, smoking status, duration of diabetes and a previous history of cerebrovascular disease were identified as the independent risk factors of PAD. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that PAD is a common complication in Asian type 2 diabetic patients. Therefore, PAD screening and treatment should be emphasized for Asian diabetic patients with high risk factors.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
Congenital nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is a rare inherited disorder, in which two different hereditary forms, X-linked and autosomal recessive traits, have been identified. The X-linked recessive form, mostly (>90%) congenital NDI, has been known to be caused by mutation of the arginine-vasopressin receptor 2 (AVPR2) gene. AVPR2 mutation sites are different in ethnic groups and recently 72 different mutation sites have been reported among AVPR2 gene. This study aimed to analyze AVPR2 gene in selected members in a Korean family with NDI and provided a report of the existence of a new mutation site in AVPR2 gene. METHODS: Three-generation maternal pedigree of the index patient (21-year old male, patient I) and his younger brother (19-year old male, patient II) with NDI was collected. Genomic DNA was obtained from patient I, II, III (index patient's male maternal cousin with NDI), index patient's mother, three maternal aunts, one female maternal cousin and, for control, one healthy male volunteer. Three coding exons of AVPR2 gene were amplified by PCR using 4 pairs of oligonucleotide primers. After direct sequencing of amplified PCR products, the sequence was compared with whole squence of normal AVPR2 gene and identification of a new site of mutation in this gene was done. RESULTS: 1) all three male patients had transversion of G to C at position 1033 of the AVPR2 gene, resulting in a subsequent change of amino acid from glycine to cysteine in codon 201. 2) Two small peaks of G and T, the result of direct sequencing in five female members in this family, would suggest that they are carriers of G to N transversion. CONCLUSION: These results can demonstrate the significant functional correlation of the mutation in AVPR2 gene sequence with clinical NDI, and suggest the clinical utility of direct mutation testing for congenital NDI in family.
