Hematological and lipid profiles of blood donors at red cross center in addis ababa.

HEMATOLOGICAL AND LIPID PROFILES OF BLOOD DONORS AT RED CROSS CENTER IN ADDIS ABABA. Ethiop Med J. 2016 Jan;54(1):21-5 Authors: Eshete EA, Weldemariam TZ Abstract BACKGROUND: Physiological range of clinically important hematological laboratory values and lipid profiles of healthy population in Ethiopia is not well assessed. OBJECTIVE: to determine hematologic and lipid profiles of healthy blood donors in Addis Ababa. METHODS: Red Cross Society located in Addis Ababa was selected as a study area. 336 donors; age range between 18-58 years participated. Venous blood sample was collected by tube containing Ehtylenediaminetetraaceticacid tri potassium (EDTA) for hematology test and sterile tube for lipid test. After centrifugation serum was extracted for lipid test and transported to St. Pauls's Millennium Medical College (SPHMMC) within 5-8hrs of sample collection. IBM.SPSS version 21 was used for data analysis, statistical significance was set at P

Purpose of review To review the recent evidence from observational/genetic/interventional studies addressing triglycerides and residual cardiovascular risk (CVRisk). Recent findings Large population-based and secondary prevention studies consistently show an association of higher triglycerides with increased CVRisk. This is compounded by genetic studies demonstrating an independent relationship between triglyceride raising or lowering genetic variants affecting triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL) metabolism and CVRisk. Mendelian randomization analysis suggests the benefit of genetic lowering of triglycerides and LDL-...

Purpose of review The speed of removal from the plasma of apolipoprotein B-containing lipoproteins, for example, chylomicrons, VLDL and LDL is determinant of the plasma concentration of these lipoproteins, is influenced by genetic features and ambient factors, and has implications in atherogenesis. As aging increases the clinical complications of atherosclerosis, it is important to appraise the status of the removal mechanisms in elderly individuals. Recent findings Removal of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins remnants is delayed but the triglyceride breakdown is unchanged in elderly individuals. The discovery of PCSK9, ...

Authors: Kim HJ, Kang T, Kang MJ, Ahn HS, Sohn SY Abstract BACKGROUND: Hyperthyroidism is associated with various cardiovascular risk factors. However, the relationship between hyperthyroidism and myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke has not been fully elucidated; only a few studies have investigated the association of hyperthyroidism with survival after MI or stroke. METHODS: We included 59,021 hyperthyroid patients and 1,180,420 age- and sex-matched control cohort from the Korean National Health Insurance database. Blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), glucose and cholesterol level, and smoking history were ...
