Economic and social impact of increased cardiac rehabilitation uptake and cardiac telerehabilitation in Belgium - a cost-benefit analysis.

CONCLUSIONS: Increased cardiac rehabilitation uptake rates can reduce the burden of disease, and the resulting benefits exceed its costs. This research supports the necessity for greater promotion and routine referral to cardiac rehabilitation to be made standard practice. The implementation of telerehabilitation as an adjunct is to be encouraged, especially for those patients unable to attend centre-based cardiac rehabilitation.

Conclusion: In a cross-sectional study of U.S. adults, we observed some positive associations of uAs and toenail As concentrations with biomarkers potentially relevant to CVD pathogenesis and inflammation, and evidence of a higher capacity to metabolize inorganic As was negatively associated with a marker of oxidative stress. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP2062 Received: 14 April 2017 Revised: 13 November 2017 Accepted: 15 November 2017 Published: 15 December 2017 Address correspondence to S.F.

Newborn screening was developed more than 50 years ago as a way to prevent developmental disability associated with untreated phenylketonuria through early detection and treatment. Since then, newborn screening has expanded to include dozens of conditions that, if not identified in early infancy, are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In the United States, each state is responsible for determining which conditions should be included in screening. Adding a condition to a state newborn screening panel is challenging. Not only does the newborn screening program have to implement the screening test, but syste...

Close-up of a woman hands hold and broke a cigarette. Credit: BigstockBy Thalif DeenUNITED NATIONS, Nov 21 2017 (IPS)Back in November 2008, the 193-member General Assembly decided, by consensus, to ban smoking and tobacco sales at the UN headquarters in New York: a ruling observed by all affiliated agencies worldwide, including the Geneva-based World Health Organization (WHO) which has severed links with the tobacco industry. But there still remains one holdout: the 187-member International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva whose Governing Body, which meets three times a year, has postponed once again its decision on whe...

This study cohort is a healthy subset of the EpiPath cohort, excluding all participants with acute or chronic diseases. With a mediation analysis we examined whether CMV titers may account for immunosenescence observed in ELA. In this study, we have shown that ELA is associated with higher levels of T cell senescence in healthy participants. Not only did we find a higher number of senescent cells (CD57+), these cells also expressed higher levels of CD57, a cell surface marker for senescence, and were more cytotoxic in ELA compared to controls. Control participants with high CMV titers showed a higher number of senes...

Researchers have found a noteworthy effect on longevity in a small study population that includes the only known individuals with a loss of function mutation in plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1). Individuals with the mutation live seven years longer on average than near relatives without it. Repeating the study with larger groups of people obviously isn't a practical option in the case of rare mutations - we're stuck with the family trees that the research community is fortunate enough to identify - but one nonetheless has to wish for more individuals, in order to obtain a more reliable confirmation, when an effect...

Conclusions— Our study suggests that improving retention in care—possibly by decentralizing RHD services—would have the greatest impact on uptake of antibiotic prophylaxis among patients with RHD in Uganda.

Conclusions: Long-term exposure to PM2.5 was associated with nonaccidental, CVD, lung cancer, and COPD mortality in China. The IER estimator may underestimate the excess relative risk of cause-specific mortality due to long-term exposure to PM2.5 over the exposure range experienced in China and other low- and middle-income countries. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1673 Received: 24 February 2017 Revised: 01 September 2017 Accepted: 05 September 2017 Published: 07 November 2017 Address correspondence to M.

Authors: Tan H, Chen L, Ma J Abstract Ischemic heart disease is a major cause of mortality and disability worldwide. Timely reperfusion is currently the most effective method of treating ischemic heart disease; however, abrupt reperfusion may cause ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Apoptosis serves an important role in the progression of myocardial I/R injury and it has been demonstrated that the mitochondria are the center of regulation for apoptosis. Penehyclidine hydrochloride (PHC) is used during surgery and has recently been identified as a new type of anticholinergic drug. It has been demonstrated in vivo th...
