An unprecedented compilation of state-of-the-art advances in clinical research by premier clinical scientists around the world. This volume discusses the methods of clinical research and the interpretation of their results in studies of normal individuals, obese subjects, and patients with diabetes mellitus. Along the way, the authoritative contributors writing here illuminate how changes in the hormone action and substrate metabolism of healthy humans may lead to obesity and noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. In Clinical Research in Diabetes and Obesity premier clinical scientists around the world offer an unprecedented compilation of state-of-the-art advances in clinical research on diabetes and obesity. This second volume, on Diabetes and Obesity, discusses the methods of clinical research and the interpretation of their results in studies of normal individuals, obese subjects, and patients with diabetes mellitus. Along the way, the authoritative contributors writing here illuminate how changes in the hormone action and substrate metabolism of healthy humans may lead to obesity and noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. A first volume, Methods, Assessment, and Metabolic Regulation, provides the methodological basis for the present work by presenting and critically assessing the major techniques used in clinical research, as well as reviewing their use in studying healthy humans.
Clinical Research in Diabetes and Obesity presents in its two wide-ranging volumes not only all of today's cutting-edge in vivo techniques, but also details approaches to elucidating the pathophysiology of these diseases, and sheds light on the latest therapeutic modalities. Its comprehensive overview of the regulation of carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism in diabetic and nondiabetic humans will prove an especially valuable contribution both to the clinical science and to the care of people suffering from obesity and diabetes.
