Conclusion: Most common etiology of PRS is ANCA positive vasculitis in India. With high degree of suspicion for DAH in patients presenting with haemoptysis, breathlessness and alveolar opacities in chest x-ray and carefully investigating by simple urine examination for evidence of GN, timely diagnosis of PRS can be made. With timely appropriate treatment survival is 68%. Patients with PRS due to leptospirosis or dengue have features suggestive of underlying disease (like icterus with raised bilirubin but

Authors: Shankarishan P, Borah PK, Mahanta J Abstract Hypertension has emerged as a major public health problem in developing countries including India. Hypertension, a major cardiovascular risk factor is recognized as a multi-factorial trait resulting from the interaction of various environmental and genetic factors. The genetic contribution is speculated to make 30% to 40% of the variation in blood pressure. Identification of variant genes that contribute to the development of hypertension is further complicated because the cardiac output and peripheral resistance, are controlled by other intermediary phenotypes....

Authors: Jain M, Vargese J, Sachan D, Venkataraman J Abstract Von Willebrand factor (vWF) is an adhesive and multimeric glycoprotein that has a central role in primary hemostasis. v W F levels correlate with thrombosis risk and inversely with bleeding risk within the apparently healthy population. Recently, numerous publications in Indian and western literature have focussed to its role in liver diseases like acute liver failure, chronic liver disease, non cirrhotic portal hypertension and tropical infections eg. dengue. The present review encapsulates the recent advances in this aspect. PMID: 31324089 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of underweight among older adults according to socio-demographic characteristics in different regions of Brazil as well as determine associated contextual and individual factors. Cross-sectional population-based study with older adults ( ≥ 65 years) interviewed by telephone survey in 2014. The body mass index was calculated based on weight and height. Associations were determined using Pearson ’ s chi-square test, considering a 5% significance level. Adjusted prevalence ratios were estimated using multilevel Poisson regression. Mean age was 73.3 years a...

This article, driving from Anthropology, presents ethnographic data elaborated in Guariroba, a neighborhood in the capital of Brazil. Between 2008 and 2014, dwellers, usually in their sixties, migrants and blue-collar workers, shared their perceptions on what they called high blood pressure and pressure problems, how they felt, explained and treated them. A very significant relation between pressure and nerves was clearly stated and helps clarify health professionals and also researchers in dealing with cardiovascular diseases. I suggest this relation can improve clinical and pharmaceutical practice and also the scientific...

This article discusses trends in health inequalities and access to health services across the regions of Brazil using data from household surveys conducted between 1998 and 2013. Social inequality was measured based on the ratio between the extremes of years of schooling considering two age groups (18 to 59 years and 60 years and over). The findings show a decline in health status and increase in prevalence of diabetes and hypertension in both age groups, which may be related to the expansion of primary healthcare. The findings regarding the percentage of people who had had a medical appointment in the last 12 months show ...
