Conclusions. Selected statins, FLC, CAs and HMGA can manage or have a potential to manage at least three features of the cluster of seven. Most of the literature-stated concerns are with select statins but there are concerns (one actual and two potential) with HMGA.PMID:34523296 | DOI:10.2478/enr-2021-0020

CONCLUSIONS: LDL-C control is suboptimal and the available LLT armamentarium, most importantly combination therapy, is being underutilized in high/very high risk patients leading to inadequate management of cardiovascular risk.PMID:34517739 | DOI:10.1080/03007995.2021.1973396

In this study, mature DCs (mDCs), generated from the GM-CSF and IL-4 induced bone marrow cells, were intravenously injected into wild-type mice. Three days later, assays showed that the mDCs were indeed able to return to the thymus. Homing DCs have been mainly reported to deplete thymocytes and induce tolerance. However, medullary TECs (mTECs) play a crucial role in inducing immune tolerance. Thus, we evaluated whether the mDCs homing into the thymus led to TECs depletion. We cocultured mDCs with mTEC1 cells and found that the mDCs induced the apoptosis and inhibited the proliferation of mTEC1 cells. These effects were onl...

Statin treatment is a major prevention treatment for hypercholesterolemia and the management of patients with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) due to its protective effects. However, its long-term safety was questioned regarding its potential role in new-onset type 2 diabetes mellitus, and its effect on gene regulation in the liver is not yet fully understood. By reanalyzing the transcriptome of the livers of patients with obesity and hypercholesterolemia, this study shows a multiple module organization that is related to various clinical metabolic parameters and identified an expression hierarchical network ...

Purpose of review Hyperlipidaemia is associated with the development of neuropathy. Indeed, a mechanistic link between altered lipid metabolism and peripheral nerve dysfunction has been demonstrated in a number of experimental and clinical studies. Furthermore, post hoc analyses of clinical trials of cholesterol and triglyceride-lowering pharmacotherapy have shown reduced rates of progression of diabetic neuropathy. Given, there are currently no FDA approved disease-modifying therapies for diabetic neuropathy, modulation of lipids may represent a key therapeutic target for the treatment of diabetic nerve damage. This r...

Biomed Pharmacother. 2021 Jul 5;141:111831. doi: 10.1016/j.biopha.2021.111831. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTObesity is a global epidemic disease that is closely associated with various health problems as Diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular, and metabolic disorders. Lycopene (LYC), a red-colored carotenoid, has demonstrated various promising therapeutic effects. Hence, the potential of LYC was studied against high fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity and metabolic disturbances in rats. Animals fed on HFD and orally supplemented with LYC (25 and 50 mg/kg) or simvastatin (10 mg/kg) every day for 3 months. The results revealed that l...

In conclusion, the findings suggest that DNAm GrimAge is a strong predictor of mortality independent of genetic influences. Heart Failure Correlates with Increased Cancer Risk Age-related disease results from the underlying cell and tissue damage that causes aging. Different people accumulate that damage at modestly different rates, the result of lifestyle choices and exposure to infectious disease. Thus the presence of a sufficient burden of damage to produce one age-related disease will be accompanied by a ...

Psyllium is a natural, predominantly soluble isolated fiber that forms a gel when hydrated. The psyllium gel is not fermented and transits the entire gastrointestinal tract intact. In the small intestine, the psyllium gel increases chyme viscosity, which slows the degradation and absorption of nutrients, which significantly improves fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels in individuals with metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus (eg, −37 mg/dL). This delay in nutrient absorption prolongs satiety/delays hunger, leading to decreased energy intake and weight loss in overweight and obese patients. In th...

ConclusionThe incidence of T2D in this cohort of patients with well controlled HIV-infection was high. The predictive factors associated with the development of T2D were not unique for HIV positive patients. The findings underline the importance of lifestyle changes in avoidance of T2D in people with HIV.

This study aimed to cluster newly diagnosed patients and patients with long-term diabetes and to explore the clinical characteristics, risk of diabetes complications, and medication treatment related to each cluster.Research Design and MethodsK-means clustering analysis was performed on 1,060 Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes based on five variables (HbA1c, age at diagnosis, BMI, HOMA2-IR, and HOMA2-B). The clinical features, risk of diabetic complications, and the utilization of elven types of medications agents related to each cluster were evaluated with the chi-square test and the Tukey–Kramer method.ResultsFo...
