Plenty of research suggests optimistic people have a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and declines in lung capacity and function. Optimism is also associated with a lower risk of early death from cancer and infection. And now a new study links optimism to living a longer life. What does this new research on optimism tell us? The study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that people who had higher levels of optimism had a longer life span. They also had a greater chance of living past age 85. The researchers analyzed data gleaned from two large population studies: about 70,000 women from the Nurse...

Healthy Diets for a Zero Hunger World”. This theme is timely, especially, because across Africa and around the world, there has been a gradual rise in malnutrition and diet-related non communicable diseases, as highlighted in The Lancet study and a United Nations Report published earlier this year. While 45 percent of deaths in children are from nu...

Conclusions: CHD and HDUE are probably two different morbid conditions, only the first one is likely bound to gross atherosclerotic lesions of coronary arteries and linked to blood lipid levels. We reviewed the problem in epidemiological investigations and addressed inflammation as a potential cofactor to differentiate between CHD and HDUE. PMID: 31615121 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we characterized a large pedigree from MASHAD study in northeast Iran with coinheritance of FCHL and early‐onset cor onary heart disease. In this family, we used whole‐exome sequencing and Sanger sequencing to determine the disease‐associated gene. We identified a novel variant in theLPL gene, leading to a substitution of an asparagine for aspartic acid at position 151. The D151N substitution cosegregated with these characters in all affected family members in the pedigree but it was absent in all unaffected members in this family. We speculated that the mutation D151N inLPL gene might be associated wi...

This article reviews the current data on the ‘cholesterol efflux hypothesis’ and discuss its ability to be modulated has a potential therapeutic target. Recent findings Recent data have demonstrated that impaired serum CEC was associated with increased mortality after a myocardial infarction (MI). Thus, therapeutic intervention aiming to improve CEC and RCT may reduce the risk of recurrent events. Early phase clinical studies targeting CEC showed promising results and a megatrial is ongoing testing the hypothesis that an improved RCT trough a modulation of the CEC can modify patient's prognosis after an acut...

Purpose of review Residual risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) persists even among patients with optimal low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. Randomized trials attempting to modulate other lipids beyond LDL-C have failed to demonstrate significant reductions in ischemic events. Recent findings Mounting evidence suggests that triglyceride elevation is an independent risk factor for ASCVD. Though trials of triglyceride-lowering therapy in the statin era have failed to provide protection from ASCVD events, subgroup analyses have revealed that those with the highest triglycerides at time...
