CONCLUSIONS: Polypharmacy is significantly associated with delirium only in surgical units, raising the issue of the relevance of medication review in different clinical settings. Specific drug classes are associated with delirium depending on the clinical setting and dementia diagnosis, suggesting the need to further explore this relationship.

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 ...

Congestive heart failure caused by silent ischemia and silent myocardial infarction : Diagnostic challenge in type 2 diabetes. Herz. 2019 Mar 21;: Authors: Valensi P, Meune C Abstract In asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), the prevalence of silent myocardial infarction on routine electrocardiograms is about 4% while for silent myocardial ischemia it is 20-30%. Some studies showed that silent myocardial infarction is associated with an increased risk of incident heart failure (HF), whereas no prospective study has ever reported such a risk in patients with silent myocardial ...

Authors: Pathak R, Kumar VP, Hauer-Jensen M, Ghosh SP Abstract Ionizing radiation exposure is a major concern for active military service members, as well as civilian population. Considering that the exposure is not predictable, it is imperative that strategies to counteract radiation damage must be discovered. Recent in vitro studies performed in our laboratory demonstrated that the vitamin E analog gamma-tocotrienol (GT3) in combination with cholesterol-lowering drugs (Statins), synergistically induced endothelial thrombomodulin, an anticoagulant with radio-protective efficacy. It was hypothesized that the combin...

Statins affect human glioblastoma and other cancers through TGF-β inhibition. Oncotarget. 2019 Mar 01;10(18):1716-1728 Authors: Xiao A, Brenneman B, Floyd D, Comeau L, Spurio K, Olmez I, Lee J, Nakano I, Godlewski J, Bronisz A, Kagaya N, Shin-Ya K, Purow B Abstract The cholesterol-lowering statins have known anti-cancer effects, but the mechanisms and how to utilize statins in oncology have been unclear. We noted in the CellMiner database that statin activity against cancer lines correlated with higher expression of TGF-β target genes such as SERPINE1 and ZYX. This prompted us to assess wheth...
