Comparison of amlodipine versus other calcium channel blockers on blood pressure variability in hypertensive patients in China: a retrospective propensity score-matched analysis.

This study aimed to assess the effect of amlodipine versus other CCB antihypertensive agents on BPV. MATERIALS &METHODS: A retrospective propensity score-matched analysis was conducted, which retrieved the encounter data from 5582 hypertensive inpatients (with a median age of 69, female percentage of 48%, diastolic blood pressure ≥40 and

Authors: Amore M, Bernárdez R, Enríquez R, Granja S, Romeo H Abstract The study aim is to evaluate anatomical variations of the thoracic duct using a specialized sequential injection procedure. The different types, frequencies, and anatomical topography were recorded and evaluated using 12 adult and 16 fetus specimens. By employing a perfusion pump device, cadavers were sequentially perfused with acrylic colored latex first through the internal marginal vein, then the thoracic duct at the interazygous-aortic recess, and finally through the posterior tibial artery. After perfusion, thoracic ducts were ...

The objective of this study was to examine the benefits of using CAVI as a predictor of cardiovascular events in high-risk patients.Methods and Design: This prospective multicenter study to evaluate the usefulness of the CAVI to predict cardiovascular events in Japan (CAVI-J) is a cohort study with central registration. Participants (n = 3,000) will be scheduled to enroll and data will be collected for up to 5 years from entry of participants into the study. To be eligible to participate in the CAVI-J study, individuals have to be aged between 40 and 74 years and have at least one of the following risk factors for arterios...

In conclusion, we showed for the first time that 7-KC induces oxidative stress via lysosomal dysfunction, resulting in exacerbation of calcification. CHIMERIC ANTIGEN RECEPTOR CANCER THERAPIES CAN NOW TARGET SOLID TUMORS If the research community is to win in the fight to cure cancer, and win soon enough to matter for all of us, then the focus must be on technology platforms that can be easily and cheaply adapted to many different types of cancer. The biggest strategic problem in the field is tha...

Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the elderly.1 Hypertension occurs in 69% of persons with a first myocardial infarction,2 in 77% of those with a first stroke,2 in 74% of individuals with congestive heart failure,2 and in 60% of older adults with peripheral artery disease.3 Hypertension is also a major risk factor in older adults for dissecting aortic aneurysm, sudden cardiac death, angina pectoris, chronic kidney disease, left ventricular hypertrophy, thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, atrial fibrillation, diabetes mellitus, the metabolic syndrome, vascular dementia, Alzheimer disease...

The association between apparent treatment resistant hypertension (ATRH) and clinical outcomes is not well studied in chronic kidney disease. We analyzed data on 3367 hypertensive participants in the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) to determine prevalence, associations, and clinical outcomes of ATRH in nondialysis chronic kidney disease patients. ATRH was defined as blood pressure ≥140/90 mm Hg on ≥3 antihypertensives, or use of ≥4 antihypertensives with blood pressure at goal at baseline visit. Prevalence of ATRH was 40.4%. Older age, male sex, black race, diabetes mellitus, and higher body mass index w...
