A risk prediction model for renal damage in a hypertensive Chinese Han population.

A risk prediction model for renal damage in a hypertensive Chinese Han population. Clin Exp Hypertens. 2018 Oct 09;:1-6 Authors: Lin J, Xu R, Yun L, Hou Y, Li C, Lian Y, Zheng F Abstract Backgroud: While numerous risk factors for renal damage in the hypertensive population have been reported, there is no single prediction model. The purpose of this study was to develop a model to comprehensively evaluate renal damage risk among hypertensive patients. Methods: We analyzed the data of 582 Chinese hypertensive patients from 1 January 2013 to 30 June 2016. Basic patient information was collected along with laboratory test results. According to the albumin-to-creatinine ratio, the subjects were divided into a hypertension with renal damage group and a hypertension without renal damage group. The prediction model was established by logistic regression based on principal component analysis, and the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was used to evaluate the predictive performance of the model. RESULTS:  There are 11 indicators have statistically significant difference between the two groups (P

New J. Chem., 2019, Advance Article DOI: 10.1039/C8NJ05613G, PaperAtanu Panja, Sumit Ghosh, Kumaresh Ghosh Cholesterol appended sulfonyl-hydrazone derivative1 was designed and synthesized as a supramolecular gelator for anionic sensing and dye adsorption. Gelator1 forms a strong gel in DMSO –H2O and the morphology of the xerogel shows a tiny rod-like fibrous network. The gel of1 shows a selective response toward CN− and F− ions causing gel-to-sol transformation. The gel of1 acts as an efficient matrix for adsorption and removal of anionic dyes such as erythrosine B and uranine from water. To cite this art...

CONCLUSION: Arterial hypertension and elevated diastolic blood pressure are associated with a risk for AS requiring surgery in subjects below 60 years of age. Strict blood pressure control in this group is strongly advocated to avoid other cardiovascular diseases correlated to hypertension. If hypertension and elevated diastolic blood pressure are risk factors for developing AS requiring surgery need further investigations. Notably, elevated fasting glucose levels were related to AS requiring surgery in older adults without concomitant CAD. PMID: 31109205 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Periodontal disease is significantly and positively correlated with increased risk of hypertension in Chinese population, and exact mechanisms of this association should be explored in future. Introduction Periodontal disease is a complex polymicrobial inflammation, including gingivitis and periodontitis. According to the 2015 Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study, the prevalence of severe chronic periodontitis in 2015 has reached 616 million (Kassebaum et al., 2017). In China, the periodontal disease standardized DALYs rate has risen from 24.7 in 1990 to 25.7 in 2013 according to the data from 2013 GBD ...

Conclusion Activation of the Nrf2-dependent antioxidant system plays an important role in cell defense against oxidative stress damage, whereas the insufficiency of the Nrf2 system is associated with multiple aspects of the genesis and progression of metabolic diseases, posing a great risk to the cardiovascular system (Figure 1). The systemic increase of Nrf2 activity by several activators may be beneficial in the treatment of metabolic diseases. In addition, selective upregulation of Nrf2 genes may represent a potential therapy in obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Looking to the future, experimental research that el...

Conclusion: This study observed an inverse correlation between plasma LDL cholesterol and heart function in individuals with T2DM. Patients with higher levels of plasma LDL cholesterol had worse left ventricular function. Therefore, plasma LDL cholesterol may be a modifiable risk factor of heart failure in diabetes, but prospective studies are necessary to confirm this finding. Introduction Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a metabolic disease that affects a considerable number of patients worldwide (1). Among diabetic individuals, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality (2). C...

This study sought to analyze the sex differences in 30-day, 1-year, and long-term net adverse clinical events (NACEs) in Chinese adult patients with STEMI after PCI. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed 1920 consecutive STEMI patients (age ≤60 years) treated with PCI from January 01, 2006, to December 31, 2012. A propensity score analysis between males and females was performed to adjust for differences in baseline characteristics and comorbidities. The primary endpoint was the incidence of 3-year NACE. Survival curves were constructed with Kaplan-Meier estimates and compared by log-rank tests between the t...

Conclusions: Our study suggested that incident CHD was positively associated with plasma levels of titanium and arsenic, and inversely associated with selenium.

Conclusions: In this longitudinal sample of older men, the findings supported the hypothesis that long-term PM2.5 exposure negatively affects renal function and increases renal function decline.
