Non Electrocardiographic alterations in exercise testing in asymptomatic women. Associations with cardiovascular risk factors

CONCLUSIONS: More than half of middle-aged women without cardiovascular symptoms present alterations in one or more exercise testing parameters. Alterations in the functional capacity or heart rate behavior, as verified by exercise testing, are associated with age, smoking, an overweight status and obesity.

There is good news and bad news when it comes to our understanding of inflammation in the pathogenesis and treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The bad news is that, like the dexamethasone suppression test or the efficacy of antidepressants before it, inflammation is oversold as an answer to the mystery of depression and its treatment. The good news is that an unusually replicable set of findings (for psychiatry) increasingly paints a consistent picture of the ways in which inflammation is of value in understanding MDD.

Challenges to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with psychiatric disorders have long been acknowledged in the field. In recent years, efforts have been made to identify genomic biomarkers for psychiatric disorders. A link between immune function and major depressive disorder (MDD) has been suggested for decades (1), but the identification of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) that underlie immune function as biomarkers for MDD has been more recent. Hundreds of DEGs have been reported for transcriptome-wide association studies (TWASs) of MDD.

O'Halloran* Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, College of Medicine and Health, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland Renal sensory nerves are important in the regulation of body fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, and blood pressure. Activation of renal mechanoreceptor afferents triggers a negative feedback reno-renal reflex that leads to the inhibition of sympathetic nervous outflow. Conversely, activation of renal chemoreceptor afferents elicits reflex sympathoexcitation. Dysregulation of reno-renal reflexes by suppression of the inhibitory refle...

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an entity with high morbidity and mortality worldwide. COPD mortality for 2020 is predicted at third place, second only to ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease (CVD). COPD patients have a higher risk of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular causes, such as ischemic heart disease, heart failure, peripheral artery disease, diabetes mellitus, depression, thromboembolism, pulmonary hypertension, renal failure, cardiac arrhythmias and obesity.

Seattle wasn't sleepless this week. Not after more than 4,000 sleep experts from around the world descended upon the Emerald City for SLEEP 2015, an annual conference sponsored by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society. Topics and research on all things related to sleep -- how much we need, how much we don't get, how much is disrupted by undiagnosed sleep disorders and how a better, cheaper, less obtrusive way to detect sleep apnea is needed -- were discussed. "Right now we don't have enough sleep clinics, sleep laboratories and sleep specialists in the country to address all the slee...
