Authors: Holm A, Swahn E, Lawesson SS, Gustafsson KM, Janzon M, Jonasson L, Lindahl TL, Alfredsson J Abstract )Several earlier studies have reported increased risk of bleeding in women with myocardial infarction, (MI) compared to men. The reasons for the observed difference are incompletely understood, but one suggested explanation has been excess dosing of antithrombotic drugs in women. The aim of this prospective observational study was to assess sex differences in platelet activity in patients treated with three different platelet inhibitors. We recruited 125 patients (37 women and 88 men) with MI, scheduled for...

This study aims to explore the clinical efficacy of ticagrelor combined with aspirin in patients with coronary heart disease angina pectoris and the effects on N terminal pro B type natriuretic peptide (NT-ProBNP) and creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) levels. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 150 patients with coronary heart disease angina pectoris were prospectively analyzed in this study. These patients were admitted to Huaiyin Hospital of Huai'an City from February 2017 to February 2019. The patients were divided into control group and research group according to different treatment methods. The following indicators before ...

Authors: Wu ZY, Wu ZG, Qi HM, Chang ZT, Zhou YZ, Hong L Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the correlation between muscle RAS oncogene homolog (MRAS) gene polymorphism and the onset risk of atherosclerosis (AS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 135 AS patients diagnosed and treated in our hospital from November 2017 to October 2018 were randomly enrolled in the observation group. Meanwhile, 150 healthy adults were selected as control group. Venous blood was withdrawn from all the subjects, and DNAs were extracted. MRAS gene loci rs9818870 and rs3755751 were analyzed by the multiplex SNaPsh...

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most prevalent diseases worldwide, and its rate of mortality is rising annually. In accordance with the current condition, studies on medicinal plants upon their activity on cardiovascular diseases are often being encouraged to be used in cardiovascular disease management, due to the availability of medicinal values in certain dedicated plants. This review was conducted based on two plant families, which are Asteraceae and Lamiaceae, to study on their action in cardiovascular disease relieving activities, to review the relationship between the phytochemistry of Asteraceae and Lamiacea...

ConclusionThe biological characteristics of ANGPTL4 are much more complex than those demonstrated by genetic studies. Future studies must elucidate how to effectively reduce the risk of CHD while avoiding potential atherogenic effects and other complications before the “prime time” of ANGPTL4-targeted therapy arrives.

Authors: Xia W, Yang N, Li Y Abstract BACKGROUND The present research aimed to explore the risk factors for adverse cardiovascular events in elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) combined with NAFLD. MATERIAL AND METHODS We included 325 AMI patients hospitalized in the Department of Cardiology. AMI patients underwent emergency thrombolysis or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). AMI patients were classified into NAFLD group and non-NAFLD group. General clinical data, creatinine and myocardial enzyme, GRACE scores of AMI patients were evaluated and compared between two groups. Incidence of adv...
