Could HPV Be Tied to Heart Trouble in Women, Too?

Researchers found that among the women studied, those infected with "high-risk" strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) were somewhat more likely to develop heart disease or suffer a stroke over the next several years.

CONCLUSIONS: Adolescents and young adults with bipolar disorder exhibited an increased risk of subsequent STI during the follow-up period compared with those without bipolar disorder. Comorbidity of substance and alcohol use disorders further increased this risk. Long-term use of bipolar disorder medications (mood stabilizers and atypical antipsychotics) may reduce this risk.

Authors: Geng W, Tang H, Luo S, Lv Y, Liang D, Kang X, Hong W Abstract Although adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) exert their therapeutic potential in ischemic stroke, the migration of ADSCs in injured area is not apparently observed after intravenous administration. ADSCs are an important source of exosomes which hold great promise as an endogenous drug delivery system for the treatment of cerebral ischemia given their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Here we investigated whether ADSCs-derived exosomes mediated miRNAs transfer and thus promoted neurological recovery after stroke. We first proved that miR...

This study defines a new clinically relevant concept of T-cell senescence-mediated inflammatory responses in the pathophysiology of abnormal glucose homeostasis. We also found that T-cell senescence is associated with systemic inflammation and alters hepatic glucose homeostasis. The rational modulation of T-cell senescence would be a promising avenue for the treatment or prevention of diabetes.

Authors: Cervantes CE, Merino JL, Barrios V Abstract INTRODUCTION: Edoxaban is the last direct oral anticoagulant marketed for the prevention of stroke among patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF). Areas covered: ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 was the pivotal clinical trial that led to the approval of edoxaban 60 mg once daily. After the publication of this study, a great number of substudies and post hoc analyses have been published, together with some observational studies. The aim of this review was to update the current evidence about the use of edoxaban in AF patients. Expert commentary: In the ENGAGE AF-TIMI 4...

Authors: Kotlęga D, Gołąb-Janowska M, Meller A, Bajer-Czajkowska A, Zembroń-Łacny A, Nowacki P, Banach M Abstract Introduction: Statins are widely used in stroke patients. The AHA/ASA guidelines recommend aggressive statin therapy in atherosclerotic stroke patients. Their beneficial effects are due to both their hypolipemic and pleiotropic properties. The aim of this study was to establish potential benefits from statin use in ischemic stroke patients with the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation (AF). Material and methods: Ischemic stroke patients with AF were enrolled in the study. Group I, the statin group ...

This study aimed to analyse the relationship between the level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and the severity of coronary artery atherosclerosis and to study 25(OH)D levels in non-diabetic patients hospitalised due to acute coronary syndrome and those diagnosed with stable CAD. Material and methods: oronary angiography was performed prospectively in 410 successive cardiac patients. The severity of coronary artery atherosclerosis was assessed according to the Coronary Artery Surgery Study Score (CASSS). The plasma 25(OH)D level was assessed with the electrochemiluminescence method. Results: The 25(OH)D level prov...

Conclusion: In a cross-sectional study of U.S. adults, we observed some positive associations of uAs and toenail As concentrations with biomarkers potentially relevant to CVD pathogenesis and inflammation, and evidence of a higher capacity to metabolize inorganic As was negatively associated with a marker of oxidative stress. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP2062 Received: 14 April 2017 Revised: 13 November 2017 Accepted: 15 November 2017 Published: 15 December 2017 Address correspondence to S.F.
