Authors: Li XH, Hu YM, Yin GL, Wu P Abstract Background and objective: Atrial electrical remodelling (AER) was significantly associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) development. Polymorphisms in hyperpolarization activated cyclic nucleotide gated potassium channel 4 (HCN4) gene might be correlated with AER. In the present study, we explored the association of HCN4 polymorphisms (rs498005 and rs7164883) with lone AF risk in a Chinese Han population. Methods: In this case-control study, the Sanger sequencing method was utilized to genotype the HCN4 polymorphisms. Relative risk of AF was assessed by the χ2 test, ...

CONCLUSIONS: Low levels of ApoA-I/IgG ICs are associated with an increased risk of adverse events in patients with CAD, raising their potential to be used as a biomarker to predict CVD progression. PMID: 31315438 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Ventricular remodeling (VR) is a complex pathological process of cardiomyocyte apoptosis, cardiac hypertrophy, and myocardial fibrosis, which is often caused by various cardiovascular diseases(CVDs) such as hypertension, acute myocardial infarction, heart failure(HF), etc.. It is also an independent risk factor for a variety of CVDs, which will eventually to damage the heart function, promote cardiovascular events, and lead to an increase in mortality. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) can participate in a variety of CVDs through post-transcriptional regulation of target gene proteins. Among them, microRNA-30 (miR-30) i...

Recent evidence suggests plaque morphology evaluated on coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has prognostic implications. East Asians have a lower prevalence of myocardial infarction and cardiovascular mortality compared with European-origin Caucasians. We aimed to compare coronary atherosclerotic burden and plaque composition in a matched cohort of Caucasian and East Asians patients with stable chest pain who underwent CTA. Two-hundred symptomatic patients (age 58.8 ±7.9, male 51%) were matched for age, gender, body mass index (BMI) and diabetes (100 each ethnic group).

The purpose of this study is to describe lipid-lowering therapy (LLT) prescriptions and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) monitoring in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) with or without concomitant cardiovascular disease (CVD). Olmsted County, MN residents with a first-ever diagnosis of DM or CVD (ischemic stroke/transient ischemic attack, myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, or revascularization procedure) between 2005 and 2012 were classified as having DM only, CVD only, or CVD  + DM.

There is a clear geographical disparity in risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the US, with a “heart attack/stroke belt” (hereafter the CVD belt) located primarily in the south east/central region (Figure 1). Low omega-3 fatty acid levels in the blood are known to be a risk factor for CVD independent of traditional lipid and inflammatory biomarkers, blood pressure, diabetes and smoking s tatus [1-6]. The extent to which a relatively low omega-3 levels contributes to this increased risk in this region is unknown.

In this study, plasma cfDNA was extracted from the plasma of cardiac disease patients and the cfDNA fragment distribution as well as the relationships between cfDNA concentration and deoxyribonuclease I (DNase I) activity enzyme implicated in double-stranded DNA processing were examined. Results revealed that the cfDNA concentrations in patients with MI and cardiac angina were significantly higher than that in healthy control subjects. Microchip electrophoresis of plasma cfDNA revealed a single fragment (150–200 bp) in some healthy control subjects and three fragments (150–200 bp, 300–400 bp, and 50...

By WILLIAM H. BESTERMANN JR., MD New Scientific Breakthroughs Can Provide a Longer Healthier Life Twenty-one years of follow-up comparing usual care with a protocol-driven team-based intervention in diabetes proved that healthy life in humans can be prolonged by 8 years. These results were achieved at a lower per patient per year cost. Aging researchers have been confident that we will soon be able to prolong healthy life. This landmark study shows this ambitious goal can be achieved now with lifestyle intervention and a few highly effective proven medications. These medications interfere with the core molecular biol...
