Lung cancer is currently one of the most common cancers worldwide, with increasing rates of diagnoses. There are 2,093,876 annual incident cases of lung cancer worldwide,[1] with 234,030 in the US[2] and 25,780 in Korea.[3] With the advancement of lung cancer treatments, the survivorship of lung cancer patients has improved. Five-year survival rates for localized lung cancer has increased from 49%[4] to 56%[2] in the US, with rates increasing from 16.5% to 27.1% for all lung cancer stages in Korea.[5] As a result, the number of lung cancer survivors has increased substantially, with an estimated 526,510 lung cancer survivo...

Large trial held in Iran of inexpensive medication combining four common drugsA cheap, single pill taken once a day that combines four common drugs is safe and reduces the risk of events such as heart attacks, strokes and sudden death in people over the age of 50, research has found.The study, the first large-scale trial to date, looked at the effectiveness of a so-called polypill – a four-in-one therapy containing drugs to lower cholesterol and blood pressure that was first proposed more than 15 years ago. The researchers found those taking the polypill had a more than 30% lower risk of serious heart problems than t...

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the arterial wall responsible for ischemic heart disease and stroke, the most frequent causes of death worldwide. Cardiovascular diseases are expected to remain the main cause of death globally within the next 15 years, owing to a rapidly increasing prevalence, mainly due to the rising incidence of obesity and diabetes on a global scale in both developed and developing economies. This forces us to consider new strategies for prediction, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease [1].

It’s no secret that air pollution isn’t good for your health. In particular, exposure to the byproducts of burning the fuel that powers most of our motor vehicles has been linked to higher risk of lung cancer, respiratory infections, stroke and heart disease, as well as an increased risk of death from these conditions. A new study now adds another worrisome pollution-related risk: eye disease. Dr. Suh-Hang Hank Juo, from the center for myopia and eye disease at China Medical University in Taiwan, and his colleagues documented for the first time in a large population that exposure to two common air pollutants&md...

High molecular weight kininogen (HK) and prekallikrein (PK) are proteins in the kallikrein/kinin system of the coagulation cascade. They play an important role in the contact activation system of the intrinsic coagulation pathway, renin-angiotensin activation, and inflammation. Hence these proteins have been posited to affect the occurrence of cardiovascular events and thus to be potential therapeutic targets. Previous case-control studies have provided inconsistent evidence for an association of HK and PK with cardiovascular disease.

In this study, we used large-scale electronic health records data from multiple linked UK databases to address these evidence gaps.MethodsFor this population-based cohort study, we used linked primary care, hospital, and cancer registry data from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink to identify cohorts of survivors of the 20 most common cancers who were 18 years or older and alive 12 months after diagnosis and controls without history of cancer, matched for age, sex, and general practice. We compared risks for a range of cardiovascular disease outcomes using crude and adjusted Cox models. We fitted interactions to in...
