  • A Study of BI 765128 in Patients With an Eye Condition Called Diabetic Macular Ischemia Who Have Received Laser Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is open to adults with diabetic macular ischemia who have received laser treatment. The main purpose of this study is to find out whether people with diabetic macular ischemia can tolerate a medicine called BI 765128. In this study, BI 765128 is given to people for the first time. The study has 2 parts. Part A tests 3 doses of BI 765128. Participants get either a low, medium or high dose of BI 765128 as a single injection into the eye. If participants tolerate it well, the highest dose will be used in part B. In part B, participants are put into 2 groups randomly, which means by chance. 1 group gets BI 765128 as injection into the eye. The other group gets sham injections. A sham injection means that it is not a real injection and contains no medicine. Participants cannot tell whether they get the real injection or a sham injection. In this part, participants receive study treatment once every month for 3 months. Participants in part A are in the study for about 4 months and visit the study site about 8 times. Participants in part B are in the study for about 5 months and visit the study site about 7 times. The doctors regularly check participants' health and take note of any unwanted effects.

  • A Study of Time-Restricted Eating on Heart Health & Metabolism

    open to eligible people ages 21-70

    Time-restricted eating (TRE) is a dietary manipulation that involves restricting food intake to 6-12 h/day with no energy intake the rest of the day. In rodents, TRE improves metabolic function without caloric restriction, potentially by activating nutrient sensing mechanisms and effects on circadian oscillations. However, an understanding of the effect of TRE on cardiometabolic health in people is not clear and few studies have evaluated this issue. Accordingly, the investigators propose to conduct a randomized controlled trial in people with obesity and prediabetes to determine the effect of 9 h TRE for 12 weeks, without a change in body weight, on key metabolic outcomes that are risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD): 1) multi-organ insulin sensitivity; 2) 24 h metabolic homeostasis and diurnal rhythm; and 3) adipose tissue and skeletal muscle biology. The proposed studies will elucidate the cardiometabolic implications of TRE in people with obesity and prediabetes.

  • Exercise and Energy Production in Chronic Kidney Disease Study

    “Adults ages 30-80 with Chronic Kidney Disease can participate in a new exercise study to help improve muscle function. See if you qualify!”

    open to eligible people ages 30-75

    Skeletal muscle dysfunction (sarcopenia) is an under-recognized target organ complication of CKD with substantial adverse clinical consequences of disability, hospitalization, and death. Sarcopenia in this proposal is defined by impaired metabolism and physical function associated with decreased skeletal muscle mass or function. Skeletal muscle tissue relies on mitochondria to efficiently utilize oxygen to generate ATP. Impaired mitochondrial energetics is a central mechanism of sarcopenia in CKD. The investigators propose a series of studies designed to shed light on the pathophysiology of sarcopenia in persons with CKD not treated with dialysis. Investigators will conduct a randomized-controlled intervention trial of combined resistance training and aerobic exercise vs. health education to assess changes in skeletal muscle mitochondrial function, metabolism and physical function. Investigators hypothesize that exercise improves mitochondrial function and physical function in persons with CKD. If successful, these experiments will identify novel pathophysiologic mechanisms for CKD-associated sarcopenia. The proposed study will provide useful insight into benefits associated with exercise among patients with CKD and investigate mechanisms associated with improved metabolism, muscle function and physical function in population.

  • Extended Bolus for Meals in a Closed-loop System

    open to eligible people ages 13-18

    This study aims to evaluate whether the use of an extended bolus will improve glucose control with high-fat high protein meals using a closed-loop system. The new knowledge gained from this study may provide a method to allow for the proper administration of insulin over an extended period to mitigate the risk of prolonged hyperglycemia or early hypoglycemia.

  • Fenofibrate for Prevention of DR Worsening

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    This randomized trial will evaluate the effect of fenofibrate compared with placebo for prevention of diabetic retinopathy (DR) worsening through 4 years of follow-up in eyes with mild to moderately severe non-proliferative DR (NPDR) and no CI-DME at baseline. In addition to evaluating efficacy, this study aims to evaluate the feasibility of a model for ophthalmologists to prescribe or collaborate with a primary care provider such as an internist/endocrinologist to prescribe and monitor the drug safely. If this study demonstrates that fenofibrate is effective for reducing the onset of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) or and the results are adopted by the community of retina specialists, a new strategy to prevent vision threatening complications of diabetes could be widely adopted. Widespread use of an oral agent effective at reducing worsening of DR would decrease the numbers of patients who undergo more invasive and much more expensive treatment for DR and who are consequently at risk for side effects that adversely affect visual function. This study will also assess the relationship of glycemic variability, as measured by continuous glucose monitoring with DR outcomes. Ancillary studies will characterize functional and structural outcomes in this cohort.

  • Islet Cell Transplant for Type 1 Diabetes

    open to eligible people ages 18-68

    City of Hope National Medical Center, located in Duarte, CA, is hosting a clinical study on islet cell transplantation, an experimental procedure being evaluated as a treatment for patients with type 1 diabetes. Islet cell transplantation involves taking insulin-producing cells from organ donors and transplanting them into the liver of a patient with diabetes. Once transplanted, the islets produce insulin, which can improve blood sugar control and eliminate the need to inject insulin or use an insulin pump. Anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) and alemtuzumab (Campath) are anti-rejection medications that work by decreasing a patient's T-cells. T-cells are special white blood cells that recognize and destroy unwanted things like infections but can also attack transplanted cells and organs. Reducing the number of T-cells at the time of transplant may protect islets and improve long-term transplant success. In previous research studies, islet transplantation has been successful in reducing low blood sugar episodes, improving overall blood sugar control, and in some cases, allowing patients with type 1 diabetes to stop taking insulin. The purpose of this study is to determine if islet cell transplantation using ATG or alemtuzumab, along with additional medications to prevent the body from rejecting the transplanted cells, is a safe and effective treatment for type 1 diabetes. Study participants may receive up to three islet transplants and will be followed for five years to monitor blood sugar control, islet transplant function, and changes in quality of life.

  • Social Engagement Strategies to Improve Medication Adherence

    open to eligible people ages 50 years and up

    In this pilot study, investigators, in partnership with Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) mentorship team and the MyMeds program, will enroll patients from MyMeds with diabetes, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, or congestive heart failure with poor medication adherence (medication adherence percentage<80% for statin or antihypertensive therapy) who report having a least one loved one or friend (e.g., spouse) whom they consider to be invested in their health, and with whom they would be willing to share focused medical information about medication adherence in the form of text messages. Participants will be randomized into either a private feedback arm or social network arm. In the private feedback arm, participants will only receive private consultations from a pharmacist regarding their medication adherence rates. In the social network arm, participants and their chosen loved one or friend will receive bi-weekly feedback text messages regarding the participant's medication adherence. Investigators will evaluate the effects of this social network intervention on medication adherence and examine the program's acceptability among study participants. This proposal is innovative because it leverages social networks-largely unused in medical care-for health improvement.

  • Study Of Drinks With Artificial Sweeteners in People With Type 2 Diabetes

    open to eligible people ages 35 years and up

    Diet beverages sweetened with artificial sweeteners occupy a unique category in the food environment as they are a source of intensely sweet taste with no calories. Diet beverages are the single largest contributor to artificial sweetener intake in the U.S. diet, and people with diabetes are the highest consumers of diet beverages, tending to consume them as a replacement for dietary sources of sugar, especially in place of sugar-sweetened beverages. This behavior has been endorsed by dietetic and scientific organizations, and diet beverages are marketed as being synonymous with better health, suitable for weight loss, and thus advantageous for diabetes control. The underlying public health concern is that there are few data to support or refute the benefit or harm of habitual diet beverage consumption by people with diabetes; therefore randomized trials with relevant outcomes must be conducted because they would address many limitations of previous research and have major implications for dietary recommendations on diet beverage intake and primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease. To begin addressing this important scientific gap the investigators are testing the effect of diet beverage intake on diabetes control parameters in free-living adults with type 2 diabetes in a randomized, two arm parallel trial with a run-in period of 2-weeks and an active intervention period of 24-weeks. This study will recruit 200 patients with type 2 diabetes who are usual consumers of commercial diet beverages and randomize them to receive and consume either: 1) A commercial diet beverage of choice (3 servings or 24 oz. daily); or 2) Unflavored bottled water of choice (sparkling or plain) (3 servings or 24 oz. daily). The primary outcome will be a central measure of clinical diabetes control in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). The study will also measure the nature and magnitude of glycemic excursions via continuous glucose monitors, as well as clinical markers of cardiometabolic risk and kidney function. Lastly, investigators will measure plausible mechanisms whereby diet beverage intake may alter risk by assessing the effect of diet beverage intake on the functional composition of the gut microbiome via stool samples and comprehensive metabolomics, satiety hormones, as well as usual dietary intake, and upstream behavioral pathways which may inform dietary intake patterns.

  • Inflammation, Diabetes, Ethnicity and Obesity Cohort

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    Obesity affects over one third of US adults (>72 million, with BMI ≥30 kg/m2), and the proportion of US adults with BMI ≥40 kg/m2 has doubled in the last 20 years. Obesity is associated with increased mortality through its linkage to comorbidities including diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and psychosocial disturbances. Given its prevalence, impact on morbidity and mortality, and economic cost, limiting the spread of obesity and its consequences is one of the most important problems of our time. In this proposed study, investigators will recruit participants from a wide range of body mass index (BMI), ethnicity and Diabetes risk to collect data and blood, stool and adipose tissue samples in the San Francisco bay area.

  • Progression and Etiology of Cortical Porosity in Diabetic Bone Disease

    open to eligible people ages 50-70

    Type 2 diabetes is associated with increased cortical bone porosity and increased fracture risk. The goal of this proposed study is to understand the longitudinal evolution of cortical bone porosity and to investigate the underlying biological processes that drive increased cortical porosity and fracture risk in the setting of diabetes. The investigators will apply novel techniques for in vivo imaging of cortical pores to patients with type 2 diabetes and controls in a longitudinal prospective study. This work will establish the longitudinal progression of cortical porosity and determine whether pore content can serve as a predictor of future cortical degradation and bone fragility.

  • TrialNet Pathway to Prevention of T1D

    open to eligible people ages 30 months to 45 years

    Rationale: The accrual of data from the laboratory and from epidemiologic and prevention trials has improved the understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Genetic and immunologic factors play a key role in the development of T1DM, and characterization of the early metabolic abnormalities in T1DM is steadily increasing. However, information regarding the natural history of T1DM remains incomplete. The TrialNet Natural History Study of the Development of T1DM (Pathway to Prevention Study) has been designed to clarify this picture, and in so doing, will contribute to the development and implementation of studies aimed at prevention of and early treatment in T1DM. Purpose: TrialNet is an international network dedicated to the study, prevention, and early treatment of type 1 diabetes. TrialNet sites are located throughout the United States, Canada, Finland, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand. TrialNet is dedicated to testing new approaches to the prevention of and early intervention for type 1 diabetes. The goal of the TrialNet Natural History Study of the Development of Type 1 Diabetes is to enhance our understanding of the demographic, immunologic, and metabolic characteristics of individuals at risk for developing type 1 diabetes. The Natural History Study will screen relatives of people with type 1 diabetes to identify those at risk for developing the disease. Relatives of people with type 1 diabetes have about a 5% percent chance of being positive for the antibodies associated with diabetes. TrialNet will identify adults and children at risk for developing diabetes by testing for the presence of these antibodies in the blood. A positive antibody test is an early indication that damage to insulin-secreting cells may have begun. If this test is positive, additional testing will be offered to determine the likelihood that a person may develop diabetes. Individuals with antibodies will be offered the opportunity for further testing to determine their risk of developing diabetes over the next 5 years and to receive close monitoring for the development of diabetes.

  • A Trial to Learn How Well Finerenone Works and How Safe it is in Adult Participants With Non-diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Researchers are looking for a better way to treat people who have non-diabetic chronic kidney disease (non-diabetic CKD). The trial treatment, finerenone, is being developed to help people who have long lasting kidney disease, also known as chronic kidney disease (CKD). It works by blocking a certain hormone called aldosterone that causes injury and inflammation in the heart and kidney which is known to play a role in CKD. In this trial, the researchers want to learn if finerenone helps to slow down the worsening of the participants' non-diabetic CKD compared to a placebo. A placebo looks like a trial treatment but does not have any medicine in it. The trial will include about 1,580 men and women who are at least 18 years old. The participants will take finerenone or a placebo once a day as tablets by mouth. All of the participants will also continue to take their current medicine for their CKD. The participants will be in the trial for up to about 50 months. During the trial, the doctors will collect blood and urine samples and check the participants' health. The participants will also answer questions about how they are feeling and what adverse events they are having. An adverse event is a medical problem that happens during the trial. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in trials, even if they do not think the adverse events might be related to the trial treatments.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This Stage II randomized, controlled, longitudinal trial seeks to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and effects of a driving decision aid use among geriatric patients and providers. This multi-site trial will (1) test the driving decision aid (DDA) in improving decision making and quality (knowledge, decision conflict, values concordance and behavior intent); and (2) determine its effects on specific subpopulations of older drivers (stratified for cognitive function, decisional capacity, and attitudinally readiness for a mobility transition). The overarching hypotheses are that the DDA will help older adults make high-quality decisions, which will mitigate the negative psychosocial impacts of driving reduction, and that optimal DDA use will target certain populations and settings.

  • Diabetes Study of Linagliptin and Empagliflozin in Children and Adolescents (DINAMO)TM

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an empagliflozin dosing regimen and one dose of linagliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes who are aged 10 to below 18 years and are currently taking metformin, insulin or both drugs (DINAMO TM) or who are treatment naïve or not on active treatment after metformin withdrawal (DINAMO TM MONO) . Empagliflozin and linagliptin are both approved for use in adult patients with type 2 diabetes. This study will assess how well empagliflozin and linagliptin work by finding out how these treatments affect blood glucose (sugar) levels compared to placebo (a pill that contains no active drug), in children and adolescents. Empagliflozin and linagliptin are considered investigational products in this study since while they have been approved for use in adults, they have not been approved for children and adolescents due to lack of clinical studies in this specific population. Patients with type 2 diabetes have higher levels of blood glucose (sugar) than patients who do not have this disease. The high level of sugar in the blood can lead to serious short-term and long-term medical problems. The main goal of treating diabetic patients is to lower blood glucose to a normal level. Lowering and controlling blood glucose help prevent or delay complications of diabetes such as heart disease, kidney, eye and nerve diseases, and the possibility of amputation. Empagliflozin is a drug that helps to reduce blood glucose (sugar) levels by causing glucose to be excreted in the urines. Linagliptin works by increasing the production of insulin (a hormone that controls the level of blood glucose) after meals when blood glucose (sugar) levels are too high. This helps to lower blood sugar levels. The subject will either receive one of the active study drugs or a placebo. This study will be double blind; this means that neither the subject, nor the study doctor will know which treatment the subject will receive. Which treatment the subject receives is decided by a computer, purely by chance; this is called a "random assignment". For this study, there will first be a screening visit, followed by a 2-week placebo run-in period (all subjects will take placebo once daily). This run-in period is designed to ensure subjects are able to take the study drugs as described in the study protocol. Thereafter there will be a 26-week treatment phase (week 1-week 26) and a 26-week safety extension period (week 27-week 52). Following this there will be a follow-up visit at week 55. On Day 1 after the placebo run-in phase, the subject will be randomly assigned to receive one of the 3 treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. This treatment will continue up to week 14. Then after week 14, the subject will be assigned to receive one of the following 4 treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. The drugs assigned after week 14 will be the same drugs as on Day 1 but some subjects will receive a higher dose of empagliflozin. After the completion of the 26-week treatment period, the subject will enter a 26-week safety extension period. The same active treatment that the subject had been assigned to at week 14 visit will be continued. Subjects assigned to placebo on Day 1 will be randomly assigned to receive one of the 3 active treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg or linagliptin 5 mg in a blinded manner. This safety extension period is primarily designed to provide additional information on how well empagliflozin and linagliptin are tolerated. Following the treatment phases, there will be a follow-up visit at week 55 Intervention model description: Eligible subjects with HbA1c of 6.5% to 10.5% at screening will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive empagliflozin 10 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo. HbA1c assessment will be performed at Week 12. All subjects with Week 12 HbA1c < 7% will remain on previously assigned randomized treatment. Subjects taking empagliflozin with Week 12 HbA1c >= 7% will be re-randomized in a 1:1 ratio to continue on the low dose treatment (empagliflozin 10 mg) or up-titrate to the high dose treatment (empagliflozin 25 mg). Subjects taking linagliptin or placebo with Week 12 HbA1c >= 7% will remain on previously assigned treatment. All subjects will get new medication kits dispensed at Week 14 to maintain the blinding. At Week 26, all subjects previously assigned to placebo will be re-randomized in a 1:1:1: ratio to receive one of the active treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg or linagliptin 5 mg. All subjects will get new medication kits dispensed at Week 14 to maintain the blinding.

  • Investigation of PJ vs. Sugar on Glucose Levels in Healthy and Prediabetic Subjects

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Pomegranate fruits and products, including juice, tea, wine and extracts are widely consumed and recognized for their health benefits. Pomegranate fruit possesses strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative properties. The effects of pomegranate on type 2 diabetic (T2DM) conditions have previously been reported. Although 8 oz. of Pom juice (PJ) contains 36.9 g of sugar, 12-week PomJ supplementation did not change plasma advanced glycated end-products, fasting glucose and HbA1C, but reduced lipid peroxidation in T2D subjects. Additionally, acute PJ consumption has been shown to lower postprandial glycemic response of a meal with high glycemic index (GI) and lower fasting blood glucose, and long-term PomJ consumption did not worsen diabetic markers. However, a large knowledge gap still exists regarding the form of sugars in PJ and the hormonal responses to PJ consumption in different physiological conditions. Therefore currently the consumption of PJ is not recommended for individuals with T2DM. This clinical study will focus on the short-term effects of PJ consumption on different diabetic variables to further evaluate the health benefits of PJ for T2DM.

    Self-testing of glucose by patients living with diabetes mellitus (DM) involves needles, which causes discomfort or inconvenience eventually lead to decreased willingness to perform such needle-based check-ups that are vital to DM management. While technology has evolved, currently there is no glucose monitoring device that is needle-free. The investigators are studying a glucose sensor that detects glucose non-invasively, from sweat on an individual's fingertip. As it has not yet been tested in individuals with DM, the team will examine its accuracy and acceptability in these patients. Results from this clinical trial could serve as the basis for further development of a non-invasive glucose sensor.

  • Proof of Concept Trial of Cannabis Derivatives in Neuropathic Pain

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Veterans with diabetes are more likely than diabetic civilians to develop disabling chronic diabetic neuropathic pain (CDNP). Research on frontline treatments for CDNP (enhanced glycemic control, exercise, pharmacological agents), shows inconsistent outcomes and dissatisfaction among Veterans. Veterans and clinicians have shown significant interest in cannabis derivatives (THC, CBD) for neuropathic pain control, but there are no well-controlled trials guiding expectations for benefit and adverse outcomes associated with cannabis for CDNP. Because Veterans are likely to present with pain and pain-related polymorbidity significantly differing from that of civilians, a well-structured clinical trial of cannabinoids for Veterans with CDNP is vital. The present phase II study will offer the first evidence describing the potential benefits and adverse effects of cannabinoids for CDNP in Veterans using a four-arm, double-blind, multisite randomized trial comparing THC, CBD, THC+CBD and placebo on neuropathic pain outcomes.

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The Validation of the Diabetes Deep Neural Network Score (DNN score) for Screening for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (diabetes) is a single center, unblinded, observational study to clinically validating a previously developed remote digital biomarker, identified as the DNN score, to screen for diabetes. The previously developed DNN score provides a promising avenue to detect diabetes in these high-risk communities by leveraging photoplethysmography (PPG) technology on the commercial smartphone camera that is highly accessible. Our primary aim is to prospectively clinically validate the PPG DNN algorithm against the reference standards of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) for the presence of prevalent diabetes. Our vision is that this clinical trial may ultimately support an application to the Food and Drug Administration so that it can be incorporated into guideline-based screening.

    This is an observational study in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) who will be receiving finerenone. Kidneys filter extra water and waste out of the blood and make urine. CKD is a long-term, progressive, decrease in the kidneys' ability filter the blood properly. In people with T2D, the body does not make enough of a hormone called insulin, or does not use insulin well enough, resulting in high blood sugar levels that can cause damage to the kidneys. As a result, CKD can occur as a complication of T2D. Finerenone works by blocking certain proteins, called mineralocorticoid receptors. An increased stimulation of these proteins is thought to damage the kidneys and the heart. By lowering their stimulation, finerenone reduces the risk of kidney disease progressively getting worse. Finerenone is available and approved for doctors to prescribe to people with CKD and T2D. Since it has only recently become available for these patients, there is a need for more information about the use of finerenone in the real-world setting. The main purpose of the study is to learn more about treatment patterns in people with CKD and T2D who will start finerenone treatment as decided and prescribed by their doctor as part of their routine medical care. To answer this question, the researchers will collect data on: - Clinical characteristics (e.g., history of CKD and T2D, blood pressure, heart health) of the participants - Reasons for starting finerenone - Reasons for stopping finerenone early - How long participants have been taking finerenone (planned by their doctor compared to actual time it was taken) - Dosing of finerenone - Other medications used while taking finerenone The researchers will also collect data on medical problems (called adverse events) that the participants may have during the study. All adverse events are collected, even if they might not be related to the study treatment. Hyperkalemia, a medical term used to describe a potassium level in the blood that is higher than normal, is of special interest when finerenone is combined with some medications commonly taken to control blood pressure. Researchers want to know how often higher potassium levels occur, and when it leads to: - Stopping of finerenone treatment - Dialysis (a medical procedure to filter the blood of extra water and waste) - Care in a hospital All data will come from medical records or from interviews study doctors will have with the participants during visits that take place during routine medical care. Participants in the US will be invited to provide voluntary blood and urine samples that could be analyzed later to better understand possible changes in protein or nucleic acid levels over time. Each participant will be in the study for 12 months. This time participating in the study may be shorter if their finerenone treatment is stopped early or the study comes to an end as planned in November 2025.

  • Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Objective: The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) demonstrated the powerful impact of glycemic control on the early manifestations of microvascular complications. Contemporary prospective data on the evolution of macrovascular and late microvascular complications of type 1 diabetes are limited. The Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study is a multi-center, longitudinal, observational study designed to utilize the well-characterized DCCT cohort of ~1,400 participants to determine the long-term effects of prior separation of glycemic levels on micro- and macrovascular outcomes. The current phase of EDIC also focuses on the interaction between and the effects of aging and long-duration diabetes on cognitive and physical function as well as the long-term effects of diabetes-related complications on quality-of-life and health care costs. EDIC is in its 27th year of follow-up. Methods: Data collection focuses on micro- and macrovascular complications. Annual or biennial measurements (using DCCT methods, standardized protocols and central laboratories) of vascular events, albumin excretion, GFR, ECG, ankle-brachial BP index, serum lipids and HbA1c allows the following analyses: 1) continuation of intention-to-treat analyses to determine long-term effects of prior separation of glycemic levels; 2) risk factors for macrovascular outcomes; 3) correlation of progression of micro- and macrovascular outcomes.

  • The Impact of Diabetes on REvascularization

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The presence of foot symptoms at rest or tissue necrosis in patients with peripheral artery disease is a medical urgency and represents a state of critical limb ischemia (CLI) where the risk of amputation, in the absence of revascularization, is high. No trial conducted to date in peripheral revascularization has determined the effect of diabetes on mechanism of revascularization failure. Therefore, this trial represents a unique opportunity to investigate the mechanisms by which diabetes affects surgical and endovascular revascularization procedures with the long-term goal of improving outcomes in CLI.
