CONCLUSIONS: UA is the commonest and NSTEMI is the least common type of ACS observed in our study. We observed important differences in patient profile, time to hospital presentation, in-hospital acute pharmacological management and vascular interventions performed between the three different types of ACS.

In July 2017, a Chicago jury found AbbVie Inc. guilty of fraudulently misrepresenting the risks of its testosterone replacement drug AndroGel. The federal jury ordered the company to pay $150 million in punitive damages. Allegations The verdict comes in a case where Jesse Mitchell blamed the drug for a heart attack he had in 2012 after four years of taking AndroGel. Mitchell, who used AndroGel from 2008 to 2012, alleged that AbbVie knew or should have known the drug could cause cardiovascular disease, strokes and other serious injuries, but failed to adequately warn consumers and doctors. He was 49 at the time of his hea...

Conclusions: Alterations to RV structure may represent a mechanism by which long-term PM10–2.5 exposure increases risks for adverse respiratory and cardiovascular outcomes, especially among certain susceptible populations. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP658 Received: 14 June 2016 Revised: 24 February 2017 Accepted: 16 March 2017 Published: 27 July 2017 Address correspondence to S.

Conclusion This large pooled cohort study seems to demonstrate an association between a healthy plant-based diet and reduced risk of coronary heart disease, and an increased risk of heart disease with an unhealthy plant-based diet. This adds to the evidence base supporting the possible benefits of healthy plant-based diets in protecting against certain illnesses. However there are some limitations to the research: The cohort included only health professionals from the US so might not be representative of wider populations in the UK or elsewhere. The study can't provide information on the benefits or otherwise of this d...
