Table 2 Telomere length and oxidative DNA damage in subjects with or without type 2 diabetes

From: Lack of association of colonic epithelium telomere length and oxidative DNA damage in Type 2 diabetes under good metabolic control

  Control subjects Type 2 diabetes P
n 22 10  
Telomere length    
CK+ cells 12.1 ± 3.4 10.6 ± 3.6 P = 0.27
All cells 9.2 ± 2.8 8.2 ± 2.8 P = 0. 38
Oxidative DNA damage    
CK+ cells 2.5 ± 0.6 2.6 ± 0.6 P = 0.76
All cells 2.2 ± 0.6 2.2 ± 0.6 P = 0.83
  1. Data are means ± SD. Data as MESF for telomere length and MFI for 8-oxoguanine as a marker of oxidative DNA damage.
