  Purpose

There has been increasing support for our hypothesis that mitochondrial dysfunction plays an important role in the etiology of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and the overlapping Metabolic Syndrome.

Further study details as provided by University of California, Irvine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Near Infrared Spectroscopy to assess muscle mitochondrial OXPHOS function. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: November 2006
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Diagnosis
muscle weakness
Device: Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy
muscle properties scanning

Detailed Description:

Once the mitochondrial defect(s) of these subjects has been defined, the data will be used to develop two non-invasive screening tools to detect mitochondrial defects in Diabetes Mellitus and Metabolic Syndrome patients.

The device call Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy develope at Beckman Laser Instituteis is non-invasive measurement technique, to measure the properties of the muscle tisuue and vascular activity (calf, bicep, or the brain)to evaluate the patient's metabolic status and and to assess muscle mitochondrial OXPHOS function.
