Increased formation of methylglyoxal in clinical diabetes mellitus and metabolism by the glyoxalase system has been linked to the development of clinical complications of diabetes: retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy. Aminoguanidine has been proposed as a prophylactic agent for preventive therapy

Dicarbonyl and oxidative stress may play important roles in the development of diabetes complications, and their response to hyperglycemia could determine individual susceptibility to diabetic nephropathy. This study examines the relationship of methylglyoxal, 3-deoxyglucosone (3DG), and oxidative stress levels to

Methylglyoxal (MG) is a toxic-glucose metabolite and a major precursor of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs). MG has been reported to result in inflammation by activating receptor for AGEs (RAGE). We recently found that Monascus-fermented metabolite monascin acts as a novel
