Pentraxin 3 deficiency protects from the metabolic inflammation associated to diet-induced obesity
ConclusionOur results support a critical role for PTX3 in the onset of obesity by promoting inflammation and limiting adipose tissue vascularization and delineate PTX3 targeting as a valuable strategy for the treatment of adipose tissue-associated inflammatory response.
CONCLUSION: Metabolic health status and obesity were significantly associated with increased risk of POAG incidence. MUNO subjects but not MHO subjects showed a higher risk of POAG development than did MHNO subjects, suggesting that metabolic status is more important than obesity in POAG.

The objective of this study was to investigate the association between the genetic variants of the ADIPOQ gene (+45T>G and +276G>T) with MetS among a relocated indigenous Temiar subtribe community in Malaysia. This cross-sectional study investigated 123 relocated Temiar volunteers in Kelantan. Modified NCEP ATP III criteria were used to diagnose MetS. DNA was extracted from peripheral blood and genotyped for ADIPOQ +45T>G and +276G>T polymorphisms using Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) technique. Associations between ADIPOQ +45T>G (rs2241766) and +276G>T (rs150...
Conclusion: PsA is characterized by an increase in cardiovascular morbidity in relation with insulin resistance. Current treatments seem to improve this risk with a decrease in cardiovascular mortality in comparison with patients with plaque psoriasis but this requires confirmation in larger prospective studies.
ConclusionsThe findings of this study indicate high prevalence of metabolic risk factors among study population. This study with a large sample size would contribute to establishment of efficient interventions and programs aimed at reducing the prevalence of MetS by health staff, supervisors and policymakers.
ConclusionKappa coefficient showed that the Iranian IDF had a good agreement with International IDF and an intermediate agreement with the ATP-III. Considering more emphasis of international and Iranian IDF on waist circumference (WC), a better agreement between these two criteria is plausible. Regarding the high prevalence of abdominal obesity among Iranian population, applying these criteria to identify high risk persons might be helpful.
(Natural News) Years of research have established a positive collaboration between estrogen and vitamin D to improve bone health. Now, recent research suggests that this dynamic duo could also play a role in staving off metabolic syndrome in postmenopausal women. Metabolic syndrome is described as a cluster of conditions – such as obesity, high blood...
Conclusion This study demonstrates an increased risk for all-cause disability pension, even after adjustment for other risk factors, among Swedish employees with metabolic syndrome compared to those withou t at baseline.byLid én E, Karlsson B, Torén K, Andersson E. doi:10.5271/sjweh.3883
CONCLUSIONS: We have shown that disruption of PLTP-mediated HDL maturation reduces SR-BI deficiency-driven atherosclerosis susceptibility in mice despite the induction of proatherogenic metabolic complications in the double knockout mice. PMID: 31941380 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
