Authors: Dayanand P, Sandhyavenu H, Dayanand S, Martinez J, Rangaswami J Abstract Vascular calcification is known to be a strong risk factor for cardiovascular adverse events and mortality. Atherosclerosis, diabetes, aging, abnormal bone mineral homeostasis and high uremic milieu such as chronic kidney disease are major factors that contribute to the progression of vascular calcification. Several mechanisms such as the osteoblastic transition of vascular smooth muscle cells in response to oxidative stress have shed light on the active nature of vascular calcification, which was once thought to be a passive process....

We thank Parker et  al1 for their interest in our study. The authors point out that subjects in our study had a high mortality in the control group as well as a higher survival in the experimental group1 than the reported literature.2 The systematic review by Parker et al provided details on mortality in alcoholic h epatitis. However, it did not present the median Maddrey’s discriminant function scores in the included studies.2 For instance, in one study, pentoxifylline therapy was associated with short term mortality rate of 25% in patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis.

Could a vaccine for type-1 diabetes be on the horizon? In a new study, a small group of people with type 1 diabetes who were given a vaccine showed improvement in their blood sugar levels to nearly normal levels—and the changes lasted for five to eight years. The study, published Thursday in the journal npj Vaccines by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, looked at nine people with type 1 diabetes who were given a vaccine to prevent tuberculosis, called bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). They had two injections, four weeks apart. Levels of their hemoglobin a1c (HbA1c), which measures a person’s bl...
