Chronic conditions – such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease – take an enormous physical toll on Americans every year. They also take a significant economic toll on individudals and employers alike, through missed work days, lost productivity, and higher health care costs and premiums. In fact, according to the Milken Institute, the annual economic impact of chronic disease in the U.S. is $1.3 trillion, with lost productivity accounting for the vast majority of that cost ($1.1 trillion).…

In conclusion, the connection between DNA damage and aging is emphasized by the secretion of senescence-associated proteins during cellular senescence, a phenotype which is activated by DNA damage and is common for both human and mice. Though much progress has been achieved, full understanding of these mechanisms has still a long way to go. XPO1 as a Novel Target for Therapies to Enhance Autophagy https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/05/xpo1-as-a-novel-target-for-therapies-to-enhance-autophagy/ Autophagy is the name given to a collection of cellular housekeeping processes that recycle damaged and un...

Authors: Rafiq K Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve disorders of heart and blood vessels, including: hypertension, coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, which finally lead to heart failure (HF). There are several treatments available all over the world, but still CVD and heart failure became the number one problem causing death every year worldwide. Both experimental and clinical studies have shown a role for inflammation in the pathogenesis of heart failure. This seems related to an imbalance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammato...

Diabetes is an important risk factor for ischemic heart disease and is associated with worse outcomes compared to non-diabetic patients following acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Specifically, the mortality following AMI was several times higher in diabetic patients compared to nondiabetics [1]. Emerging evidence indicates that hyperglycemia exerts long-lasting unfavorable effects on the cardiovascular system even after blood glucose normalization [2]. Short-term exposure to hyperglycemia may induce “Hyperglycemic memory” and cause long-lasting effects on myocardium [3].

Authors: Abinader EG Abstract BACKGROUND: Cardiac patients of all ages were managed in the past by internists who specialized in cardiology. During the past 50 years, the medical field has witnessed great strides in the management of congenital heart disease, and thus pediatric cardiology has become a subspecialty in many countries. This review article focuses on the advances in fetal cardiac interventions (FCI) since its inception by our group in 1975. Three major modes of FCI have evolved during the past 42 years: pharmacologic, closed FCI, and open FCI. All treatments require a careful approach by the heart team...

Written by Pendell MeyersI received a text at 18:13 of an ECG taken several minutes prior, with no clinical information and only the question " De Winters? "Here is the ECG:What would you tell the treating team???I responded at 18:14 PM:" I think it's posterior STEMI (OMI) instead of de Winter. Cath lab immediately is indicated. "I clarified further:" De Winter would need hyperacute T waves (not present here), and would indicate acute occlusion of the territory in the affected leads; so if there was de Winter in anterior leads, that would mean the anterior wall is the one involved. Here we have iso...
