Aspirin is arguably a calorie restriction mimetic, able to spur some of the same beneficial cellular stress responses that are activated by low nutrient levels. Calorie restriction itself, practiced over the long term, does not have a very large effect on human life span. Given the existing demographic data, a gain of even five years of life would be very surprising. Further, it is well established that the life extension resulting from calorie restriction scales down as species life span scales up. Mice live up to 40% longer on calorie restricted diets, but we humans certainly don't. Aspirin has other effects besid...

Authors: Liu X, Zheng X, Su X, Tian W, Hu Y, Zhang Z Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this observational case-control study was to compare the levels of plasma resistin between patients with acute aortic dissection and matched controls, and to use propensity score matching (PSM) to reduce case selection bias and clinical confounders. MATERIAL AND METHODS With the use of PSM, this study included 43 pairs of patients with acute aortic dissection (type-A and type-B dissection) and matched controls. Plasma resistin levels and other laboratory parameters were compared between the two groups, including white blood cell (WB...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Depression is a frequently observed comorbid condition in patients with cardiovascular diseases. In contrast to coronary heart disease and heart failure there is a limited amount of published data concerning the increased prevalence of depression among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Therefore, we decided to assess the prevalence of depression in Polish community-dwelling older patients with a history of AF. METHODS: The data were collected as part of the nationwide PolSenior project (2007-2012). Out of 4979 individuals (age range 65-104 years), data on self-reported history of ...

AbstractDiabetic nephropathy has been proved to be correlated with the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases in diabetic patients. However, the mechanism is unclear. LncRNA Gm4419 has been reported to participate in the development of diabetic nephropathy, while its involvement in cardiac diseases is still unknown. Therefore, our study aimed to investigate the correlation between Gm4419 expression and incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. A total of 100 type 2 diabetic patients combined with diabetic nephropathy and 100 type 2 diabetic patients without diabetic nephropathy were included and followed up for ...

Authors: Anker D, Santos-Eggimann B, Santschi V, Del Giovane C, Wolfson C, Streit S, Rodondi N, Chiolero A Abstract Screening and treatment of hypertension is a cornerstone of cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention. Hypertension causes a large proportion of cases of stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure, and associated disability and is highly prevalent especially among older adults. On the one hand, there is robust evidence that screening and treatment of hypertension prevents CVD and decreases mortality in the middle-aged population. On the other hand, among older adults, observational studies have shown...

Publication date: Available online 5 September 2018Source: Trends in Food Science &TechnologyAuthor(s): Teng Wang, Changhu Xue, Tiantian Zhang, Yuming WangABSTRACTHyperlipidemia with the characteristic of excessive blood lipid level is a risk factor for stroke, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes, sudden death, and so on. Therefore, we should pay more attention to the dangers of hyperlipidemia and look for natural lipid-lowering ingredients to prevent and relieve hyperlipidemia. In recent years, various studies have shown that active ingredients from marine ...

Abstract Renalase gene rs2576178 polymorphism has been demonstrated to be a risk factor of ischemic stroke, essential hypertension and end-stage renal disease, but its association Renalase with risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) has been less reported. Therefore, we detected Renalase rs2576178 polymorphism in 449 CAD patients and 507 healthy controls using matrix-assisted laser desorption/lionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. It was found GG genotype or G allele of rs2576178 polymorphism was associated with the risk of CAD. Stratified analysis indicated Renalasethis polymorphism significantly increased ...

Objective: The aim was to investigate whether office white-coat effect tail (OWCET), the waning of blood pressure (BP) after its waxing during office visit, predicted long-term major fatal and nonfatal events in the Gubbio residential cohort. Methods: There were 3572 persons (44% men, 54 ± 11 years old) included. OWCET was defined as a decrease of 10 mmHg or more in SBP between the third and first measurement out of a series obtained a few min apart in which the second and third were considered actual baseline SBP at enrollment. Cardiovascular (CVD), including strokes and coronary heart disease (CHD) hard...
