These observations, combined with the new findings that IFITM3 directly contributes to plaque formation, suggest that viral and bacterial infections could increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease development. Indeed, researchers found that the level of IFITM3 in human brain samples correlated with levels of certain viral infections as well as with gamma-secretase activ...

In this study, except for troponin elevation,Gestalt was the best predictor.The article does not specify the QT correction methodWhy is right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) not found in this large study of syncope?  Probably because it is not common enough to be identified in a general syncope study.  Not every high risk factor will be identified in such studies, but it is obvious that RVH is a dangerous condition and that, if identified on ECG, needs further workup.  Why were so few ECG findings predictive?Because most abnormal ECG findings were considered adverse outcomes in their own right and not eva...
