Heart failure hospitalisation more than doubles in IBD flares

Dr Søren L. Kristensen, lead author, said: “Previous studies have shown an association between chronic inflammatory diseases (psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, celiac disease and IBD) and an increased incidence of venous- and arterial thrombotic disease (primarily heart attack and stroke). Researchers suggest the link is at least in part caused by inflammatory prothrombotic effects.” Topics: Heart Failure (HF)

Abstract Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) can induce normal or aberrant angiogenesis depending on the amount secreted in the microenvironment around each cell. Towards a possible clinical translation, we developed a Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS)‐based technique to rapidly purify transduced progenitors that homogeneously express a desired specific VEGF level from heterogeneous primary populations. Here, we sought to induce safe and functional angiogenesis in ischaemic myocardium by cell‐based expression of controlled VEGF levels. Human adipose stromal cells (ASC) were transduced with retroviral vec...

The objective of this study was to determine the neonatal and maternal outcomes of pregnancies in SLE patients compared to pregnancies in healthy controls. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study in a tertiary care hospital in Oman between January 2007 and December 2013. We analyzed 147 pregnancies and compared 56 (38.0%) pregnancies in women with SLE with 91 (61.9%) pregnancies in healthy control women. Disease activity was determined using the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI). Results: The mean age of the cohort was 30.0±5.0 years ranging from 19 to 44 years old. Pati...

Publication date: Available online 24 February 2018 Source:International Journal of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine Author(s): Sulaiman M. Al-Mayouf Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common chronic childhood arthritis; unfortunately, no diagnostic tool is available. Genetic disorders with musculoskeletal involvement that mimic chronic polyarthritis should be considered in the differential diagnostics of JIA. Normal inflammatory markers and characteristic radiological features are able to distinguish these disorders from JIA. Timely diagnosis of these disorders is crucial to offer the family proper genetic...

Conclusions There are significant differences between subjects with RA and matched healthy control subjects regarding the exhaled NO parameters. It is unclear if this can be explained by the pathogenesis of RA, consequences of long-term disease, and/or due to drug treatment.

Efficacy of aliskiren supplementation for heart failure : A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Herz. 2018 Feb 22;: Authors: Luo Y, Chen Q Abstract BACKGROUND: Aliskiren might be beneficial for heart failure. However, the results of various studies are controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the efficacy of aliskiren supplementation for heart failure. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, EBSCO, and the Cochrane Library databases were systematically searched. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the efficacy of aliskiren for hear...
