Hypertension control activities in Latin America and the Caribbean: opportunities for late-stage (T4) translation research.

Hypertension control activities in Latin America and the Caribbean: opportunities for late-stage (T4) translation research. Rev Panam Salud Publica. 2018;42:e22 Authors: Salicrup LA, Ordunez P, Engelgau MM Abstract This work had two objectives: (1) to identify the extent of the problem and gaps pertaining to hypertension control in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and (2) to identify the potential role for late-stage (T4) translation research to tackle the current and future hypertension burden in that region. We explored the extent of the problem and the potential opportunities to use late-stage (T4) translation research to address it. We analyzed calls to action and policies implemented within several LAC countries and also at the regional level. Some LAC countries are currently developing comprehensive plans for controlling noncommunicable diseases. Additionally, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is working on implementing a comprehensive plan of action within the PAHO Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases. These endeavors underscore the need for and the relevance of implementing effective, evidence-based, affordable interventions for treating and controlling hypertension. In these efforts, late-stage (T4) translation research can help to determine the best strategies for delivery of hypertension control. This late-stage (T4) translation research should involve all relevant stakeholders and partners in order...

We report the cases of two patients, one 26 years-old male, and the other 43 years-old female, who had a history of high blood pressure and hypokalemia. The male also presented progressive tetraparesis six months before diagnosis. The female patient was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjögren's syndrome. After investigation, using ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography, both patients presented hypodense and solid nodular lesions in the adrenal gland, compatible with adenoma. The surgical team opted for a hybrid minimally invasive approach. Providing a better visualization of the surgical fie...

In this study, with an ultra-fast liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometry (UFLC-Q-TOF-MS) method, a total of 88 components in BBTD were identified by the accurate masses and fragmentation pathways including 19 flavonoids, 8 lactones, 12 triterpenoids, 10 phenolics, 14 amino acids, 13 nucleobases and nucleosides, 7 organic acids, and 5 other compounds. In addition, under the same chromatographic conditions, we developed an ultra-fast liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole linear ion trap mass spectrometry (UFLC-Q-TRAP-MS) method to simultaneously quantify 20 bioactive components...

Because of the preventable character of these factors, the searching of dietary compounds with counteracting effects against them would provide a new framework for the development of novel multifunctional foods or nutraceuticals.

Conclusions: Compared with 1996, participants entering CR in 2015 were older, more overweight, and had a higher prevalence of coronary risk factors. Lipid values improved substantially concurrent with increased statin use. While the percentage of female participants increased, they continue to be underrepresented. Patients with heart valve repair/replacement now constitute 10.6% of the patients enrolled. Clinical programs need to recognize changing characteristics of attendees to best tailor interventions.
