Publication date: Available online 17 May 2019Source: Protein Expression and PurificationAuthor(s): Vandana, Satish Kantipudi, Neeraj Maheshwari, Sheetal Sharma, Girish SahniAbstractThere has been an increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction and stroke in modern societies because of multiple lifestyle related issues like sedentariness and obesity, alcohol consumption and many more “life-style”factors. The FDA-approved thrombolytics such as Tissue Plasminogen Activator, Streptokinase etc. are used to lyse the clots in thrombotic disorders such as myocardial infarction, stroke...

CONCLUSIONS: In community-dwelling Japanese men, anthropometric obesity indices, BMI in particular, were more strongly associated with carotid atherosclerosis than CT-based obesity indices. The association of general obesity with carotid atherosclerosis was strong and adding CT-based obesity measure did not considerably influence in the association.

Conclusion. Contextual variables, and specifically the availability of stroke units, make a positive impact on individual variables that affect prognosis and mortality in ischemic stroke. Moreover, the determination of this impact is feasible through the use of structural equation methodology. We analyze the methodological and clinical implications of this type of study for hospital policies. Key words: Stroke; mortality; structural equation model; predictive model

AbstractSystemic inflammation is associated with arteriosclerotic disease progression and worse stroke outcome in patients with carotid arteriosclerotic disease. We hypothesize that systemic inflammation is mediated by impaired carotid baroreceptor and chemoreceptor function induced by carotid arteriosclerosis rather than by the generalized inflammatory arteriosclerotic process.Heart rate variability (HRV), serum levels of inflammatory markers, demographic and life style factors, and concomitant diseases with potential impact on systemic inflammation were determined in 105 patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis of var...

ConclusionThe prevalence of CVD in patients with type 2 diabetes in clinical practice in Sweden was 28.3% during the study period, and it was 11.5% in the patients starting empagliflozin treatment. Patients of the latter cohort were, however, younger, more obese, and more likely to have unsatisfactory glycemic control, requiring additional treatment. Overall, a large proportion of type 2 diabetes patients should be considered at high cardiovascular risk.FundingBoehringer Ingelheim AB, Sweden.

ConclusionsThe HO recurrence difference between two groups confirmed the hypothesis. Although underlying mechanisms are unclear, weight control might promote postoperative and long-term rehabilitation of the elbow joint for children and teenagers.Level of evidenceIII, retrospective cohort study, treatment study.

ConclusionThe current study provides evidence that bariatric surgery is a cost-effective alternative among some cohorts in the Colombian setting. For obese patients with sleep apnea or diabetes, bariatric surgery is a recommendable alternative (dominant and cost-effective, respectively) for the Colombian healthcare system.
