  • Sensor Life and Overnight Closed Loop: A Randomized Clinical Trial. 

    Tauschmann, Martin; Allen, Janet M; Wilinska, Malgorzata E; Ruan, Yue; Thabit, Hood; Acerini, Carlo L; Dunger, David B et al. (Sage, 2016-11-10)
    $\textbf{Background}$: Closed-loop (CL) systems direct insulin delivery based on continuous glucose monitor (CGM) sensor values. CGM accuracy varies with sensor life, being least accurate on day 1 of sensor insertion. We ...
  • Variability in passing standards for graduation-level knowledge questions across UK Medical Schools 

    Taylor, CA; Gurnell, M; Melville, CR; Kluth, DC; Johnson, N; Wass, V
    $\textbf{Objectives}$: Given the absence of a common passing standard for students at UK medical schools, this paper compares independently -set standards for common “1 from 5” single-best answer (multiple choice) items ...
  • Localisation of an occult thyrotropinoma with $^{11}$C-methionine PET-CT before and after somatostatin analogue therapy 

    Koulouri, O; Hoole, AC; English, P; Allinson, K; Antoun, N; Cheow, H; Burnet, NG et al. (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    A 75-year-old woman presented to her local endocrine service with tiredness, palpitations, and enlargement of a longstanding goitre. Unexpectedly, her thyrotropin (thyroid-stimulating hormone [TSH]) concentration was not ...
  • Integrative genomic analysis implicates limited peripheral adipose storage capacity in the pathogenesis of human insulin resistance 

    Lotta, LA; Gulati, P; Day, FR; Payne, F; Ongen, H; van de Bunt, M; Gaulton, KJ et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-11-14)
    Insulin resistance is a key mediator of obesity-related cardiometabolic disease, yet the mechanisms underlying this link remain obscure. Using an integrative genomic approach, we identify 53 genomic regions associated with ...
