Leaving school earlier could increase the risk of heart disease

Although it has been known for a long time, that education, and socioeconomic position affect health, particularly in later life, there was limited knowledge as to why. New research has found that increased levels of BMI, blood pressure and smoking partly explain why people who left school at an earlier age could be at an increased risk of heart disease.

In this study we found no support for the concern that genetic attribution of RHD, understood by participants in our study as a genetic predisposition to developing the disease, would impact stigma associated with it. Our findings provide some reassurance that genomic research may unlikely cause an increase in disease-related stigma in the South African context.

Authors: Zeng L, Zhang Z, Wang X, Tu S, Ye F Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the correlations of circadian rhythm disorder of blood pressure with arrhythmia and target organ damage in hypertensive patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 198 patients admitted and treated in our hospital from May 2018 to April 2019 were selected to receive 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. The nighttime blood pressure decrease rate is 0-10% in people with normal circadian rhythm of blood pressure. In the present study, we divided patients into a normal circadian rhythm group (normal circadian r...

Background: Influenza virus is one of the most common respiratory pathogens for all age groups and may cause seasonal outbreaks. Our aim was to identify risk groups and factors associated with severe clinical course including mortality in children with influenza-related lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI). Methods: We conducted a retrospective study in children hospitalized with influenza virus LRTI from 2008 to 2018. Data on demographic features, influenza type, viral coinfection, primary and secondary bacterial infections (SBIs), time of onset of antiviral treatment, comorbidities, hospitalization length, pedia...

Mohamed, Nagwa El-Badri, Amr ZaherAbstractStem cell therapy using bone marrow derived or mesenchymal stem cells has become a popular option for cardiovascular disease treatment, however the administration of embryonic stem cells has been mostly experimental. Remarkably, most of these ongoing clinical trials involve adult patients, but little is known regarding the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy in newborns and children battling congenital heart diseases. Furthermore, cell delivery methods involve the administration of stem c...

Suppression of oxidative stress, apoptosis, and inflammation of endothelial cells is a valuable treatment strategy to prevent or halt the progression of CHD. In the present study, we used real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Western b...

AbstractCardiovascular computer tomography (CT) in pediatric congenital heart disease (CHD) patients is often challenging. This might be due to limited patient cooperation, the high heart rate, the complexity and variety of diseases and the need for radiation dose minimization. The recent developments in CT technology with the introduction of the third-generation dual-source (DS) dual-energy (DE) CT scanners well suited to respond to these challenges. DSCT is characterized by high-pitch, long anatomic coverage and a more flexible electrocardiogram-synchronized scan. DE provides additional clinical information about vascula...
