Researchers analyzed 11 years of data from more than 65,000 people, ages 40-79, living in the American Southeast. More than two-thirds of the participants were black, and about two-thirds were at high risk for heart attack or stroke at the start of the study period.
The lymphatic system is a parallel circulatory system responsible for moving fluid, immune cells, and a range of vital molecules around the body. It is of particular importance to immune function, allowing components of the immune system to carry messages from place to place in the body, and communicate and coordinate the immune response at the hubs known as lymph nodes. Like all tissues in the body, the lymphatic system is negatively impacted by aging, and this has widespread detrimental effects throughout the body and brain. For example, lymph nodes become disrupted in structure and function by the presence of sen...
Diagnostic accuracy of troponin T measured ≥6h after symptom onset for ruling out myocardial infarction. Scand Cardiovasc J. 2019 Dec 09;:1-9 Authors: Khoshnood A, Erlandsson M, Isma N, Yndigegn T, Mokhtari A Abstract Objectives: Guidelines recommend a single high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) ≤14 ng/L measured ≥6 h after chest pain onset combined with a GRACE score
A Yale study finds that functional impairments — of hearing and mobility, for example — may be relevant to establishing a prognosis for older cardiac patients.
It’s fairly established medical science that people who have had heart attacks can take regular low doses of aspirin to significantly lower their risk of having another heart attack, or other heart problems including stroke. But it is still an open question whether or not people who haven’t had a heart event, but are at higher risk of one (because, for example) they have diabetes, high blood pressure, or elevated cholesterol levels), can also benefit from the over-the-counter painkiller and anti-inflammatory drug. A new study, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, adds to that debate by ad...
In new research, low-dose aspirin -- or amounts ranging from 75 to 150 milligrams -- was not found to reduce the risk for heart attack among African-American adults.
WEDNESDAY, Dec. 11, 2019 -- The daily use of low-dose aspirin against heart disease may have taken another knock. New research shows that the practice may not provide black Americans with any lowering of their heart attack risk. Researchers...
We have recently read the report by Su et al.  concerning “Value of circulating miRNA-1 detected within 3 h after the onset of acute chest pain in the diagnosis and prognosis of acute myocardial infarction”. This clinical study provides insights into the potential of miRNA-1 as a diagnostic biomarker for patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI). However, the specific molecular mechanism regulating miRNA-1 has not yet been elucidated.
Abstract The close connection and interaction between the cardiac and the liver functions are well-known, as cirrhotic cardiomyopathy is an important clinical entity which best describes the mutual pathogenical influence between these two organs. Due to the fact that cardiac dysfunction in patients with chronic hepatic disorders is oligosymptomatic or even asymptomatic, an early diagnosis represents a challenge for every physician. Syndecan-1-a transmembrane proteoglycan that exerts its functions mainly via its heparane sulfate chains-is a very promising biomarker, correlated not only with the degree of cardiac fi...
We report a case of Kounis syndrome type III (coronary thrombosis) variant in a 48-year-old male, who had suffered recurrent acute myocardial infarction after scallion-induced hypersensitivity reactions. Following appropriate anti-thrombotic, anti-histamine and reperfusion strategies, the patient was found to have elevated levels of IgE and chronic urticaria. Upon administration of omalizumab there was an improvement of chronic urticaria, decrease in IgE levels and abolishing of the ischemic attacks.
