ić M Abstract Cardiovascular diseases represent one of the most notable health problems of the modern civilization. Stroke and heart attack often lead to lethal outcome; essential problem underneath being thrombus formation. Prophylactic approaches include acetylsalicylic acid and clopidogrel therapy on the level of primary hemostasis, i.e., primary clot formation. In the last five years, in the USA, health care expenses related to cardiovascular diseases have increased 50 %, to over 350 billion dollars. Thus, application of plant species and medicinal plants rich in polyphenols in prevention of thrombus formatio...

Conclusions: Analysis shows a treatment disparity for ACS for symptomatic HIV patients only as symptomatic HIV affected patients received less aggressive catheterization and revascularization management after ACS, compared to control group. However, this effect was not present for the asymptomatic HIV patient group. PMID: 31633997 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lytvyn Y, Bjornstad P, van Raalte DH, Heerspink HL, Cherney DZI Abstract Diabetic kidney disease remains the most common cause of end-stage kidney disease in the world. Despite reductions in incidence rates of myocardial infarction and stroke in people with diabetes over the past 3 decades, the risk of diabetic kidney disease has remained unchanged, and may even be increasing in younger individuals afflicted with this disease. Accordingly, changes in public health policy have to be implemented to address the root causes of diabetic kidney disease, including the rise of obesity and diabetes, in addition to ...

Effects of GCN2/eIF2α on myocardial ischemia/hypoxia reperfusion and myocardial cells injury. Am J Transl Res. 2019;11(9):5586-5598 Authors: Pu Y, Wu D, Lu X, Yang L Abstract Myocardial ischemia/hypoxia-reperfusion injury is a common and severe cardiovascular disorder. General control non-derepressible 2 (GCN2) plays an important role in the role of cardiomyocyte glucose metabolism. Therefore, our study focused on the expression of GCN2/eIF2α in myocardial ischemia/hypoxia-reperfusion injury and its mechanism of myocardial cell injury. In the volunteers and patients with myocardial ischemia...

Authors: Zhai X, Han W, Wang M, Guan S, Qu X Abstract Acute myocardial infarction is one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide. Although ameliorative therapies against ischemic injury have remarkably reduced death rates among patients, they are inevitably complicated by reperfusion injury. Therefore, it is essential to explore other approaches to reduce ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). Modulating the levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a promising therapeutic strategy against some aging-related diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the role of NAD+ in a swine model of myocardial I...
