Authors: Riera-Mestre A, Ribas J, Castellote J Abstract Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant inherited Rare Disease that causes a systemic anomalous vascular overgrowth. The approach and follow-up of these patients should be from multidisciplinary units. Its diagnosis is carried out according to Curaçao clinical Criteria. Telangiectasia in the nasal mucosa cause recurrent epistaxis, the main symptom of HHT and difficult to control. The three types of hepatic shunting, hepatic artery to hepatic vein, hepatic artery to portal vein or to portal vein to hepatic vein, can cause hi...

In conclusion, this is the first report to show that pyroptotic cell death occurs in the aging brain and that the inflammasome can be a viable target to decrease the oxidative stress that occurs as a result of aging. Reducing Levels of Protein Manufacture Slows Measures of Aging in Nematodes https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/12/reducing-levels-of-protein-manufacture-slows-measures-of-aging-in-nematodes/ Researchers here demonstrate that an antibiotic slows aging in nematode worms, providing evidence for it to work through a reduction in protein synthesis. Beyond a slowing of aging, one of the con...

Conclusion: The findings of the study showed that NGAL associated with NT-proBNP was a stronger predictor of the primary endpoint than NGAL or NT-proBNP alone. The level of NGAL was rising in hypertension, ischemia, anemia, hypoalbuminemia, diabetes or arrhythmias.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:1865 –1877

Sustained hypertension is a major cause of heart failure in aging hypertensive patients. Salusin β, a novel bioactive peptide of 20 amino acids, has been reported to participate in various cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension. We therefore hypothesized that central knockdown of salusin β might be effective for hypertension-induced heart failure treatment.

Authors: Zewari S, Hadi L, van den Elshout F, Dekhuijzen R, Heijdra Y, Vos P Abstract COPD and obesity often coexist and there is a complex interaction between them. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of obesity in a secondary care COPD population. Furthermore, the presence of comorbidities in obese (COPDOB) and non-obese COPD (COPDNO) individuals was studied. In 1654 COPD patients (aged ≥18 years) who visited a pulmonologist between January 2015 and December 2015, patient characteristics, pulmonary function tests and comorbidities were obtained from the medical records. Subjects were categorized according t...

(CNN) — The recommended amount of sleep for adults is six to eight hours a night. Sleeping more than those hours is associated with an increased risk of death and cardiovascular diseases, says a global study published Wednesday in the European Heart Journal. Looking at data from 21 countries, across seven regions, the research team found that people sleeping more than the recommended upper limit of eight hours increased their risk of major cardiovascular events, like stroke or heart failure, as well as death by up to 41%. But a possible reason for this could be that people have underlying conditions causing them to s...

AbstractChronic sympathetic nervous system overactivity is a hallmark of aging and obesity and contributes to the development of cardiovascular diseases including hypertension and heart failure. The cause of this chronic sympathoexcitation in aging and obesity is multifactorial and centrally mediated. In this mini-review, we have provided an overview of the key and emerging central mechanisms contributing to the pathogenesis of sympathoexcitation in obesity and healthy aging, specifically focusing on hypertension. A clear understanding of these mechanisms will pave way for targeting the sympathetic nervous system for the t...

Abstract Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a mortal disease featured with pulmonary vascular constriction and remodeling, right heart failure and eventual death. Several reports showed that high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) appears to be critical for the development of PH, the underlying mechanism, however has not been revealed. Experiments from the current study demonstrated that the HMGB1 level was elevated in the lung tissue and blood plasma of rats after chronic hypoxia exposure and monocrotaline treatment. The HMGB1 was originally located within nucleus and translocated to cytoplasm of pulmonary artery smooth mu...

This study sought to evaluate the impact of sex differences on ischemic postconditioning during the primary PCI. We analyzed clinical outcomes at 1  year in the 537 men and 163 women with STEMI, who were randomized to the postconditioning or to the conventional PCI group. Women were older, had higher rates of hypertension, were less likely to be current smokers, and had longer symptom-to-reperfusion time. The rate of major adverse cardiac even ts (MACE: a composite of death, myocardial infarction, severe heart failure, stent thrombosis, or target vessel revascularization) at 1 year was higher in women compared to...
