Heart attack: Eating this fermented food could prevent the life-threatening condition

HEART attack is a life-threatening condition which occurs when the supply of blood to the heart is suddenly blocked, usually by a blood clot. Diet can play a big part in helping prevent the condition, including eating a certain fermented food.

It is known that exposure to airborne particles, such as smoke from cooking fires, correlates with increased mortality due to cardiovascular disease. Setting aside commentary on wealth and its correlation with exposure to particulate air pollution, the obvious candidate mechanism is an increase in chronic inflammation due to the effects of inhaled particles on lung tissue. Raised inflammation then leads to an accelerated progression of atherosclerosis, the fatty deposits that narrow and weaken blood vessels, ultimately leading to heart failure, stroke, and heart attack. Researchers here provide epidemiological data to supp...

Authors: Ling AY, Alsentzer E, Chen J, Banda JM, Tamang S, Minty E Abstract Over 75 million Americans have multiple concurrent chronic conditions and medical decision making for these patients is mostly based on retrospective cohort studies. Current methods to generate cohorts of patients with comorbidities are neither scalable nor generalizable. We propose a supervised machine learning algorithm for learning comorbidity phenotypes without requiring manually created training sets. First, we generated myocardial infarction (MI) and type-2 diabetes (T2DM) patient cohorts using ICD9-based imperfectly labeled samples u...

This study showed that efficacy of 0.9 and 1.4 mm excimer laser catheter was equivalent in ELCA for AMI patients. If o ne takes into account lesion crossability, debulking effects, and the stunned platelets phenomenon, the 0.9 mm excimer laser catheter is sufficient for ELCA in AMI patients.

AbstractWe studied whether previously developed cardiac risk scores —including history, ECG, age, risk factors, and troponin (HEART); Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI); Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE); and Emergency Department Assessment of Chest Pain (EDACS)—could be applied to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients with possible coronary artery disease, including anginal equivalents. Patients with chest pain or anginal equivalents who underwent coronary computed tomographic angiography were included. The primary outcome was 30-day MACE. We compared the cardiac risk...

AbstractDiabetes mellitus (DM) is an independent predictor of adverse outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated the interaction between DM and high platelet reactivity (HPR) in determining long-term clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We enrolled 500 patients who were divided based on the presence of DM and HPR. Primary endpoint was the occurrence of major adverse clinical events (MACE) at 5  years. Patients with both DM and HPR showed the highest estimates of MACE (37.9%, log-rankp

ABSTRACTBackgroundTrends and clinical factors associated with prescribing choices for oral P2Y12 inhibitors (P2Y12-I) remain unknown for patients on chronic dialysis, i.e., with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).MethodsFrom 2011 –2014 U.S. Renal Data System registry, we identified 36,542 ESRD patients who received new prescriptions for P2Y12-I (median age 64.0 years and 54% males). Of the cohort, 93% were receiving hemodialysis and 7% on peritoneal dialysis. We analyzed trends and investigated clinical factors associated with specific P2Y12-I prescribed.ResultsClopidogrel was prescribed for 95%, prasugrel for 3%, and ti...

In this study, the retrieving of gold nanoparticles from Euphorbia fischeriana root was amalgamated by standard procedure. Fabricated gold nanoparticles were portrayed through the investigations of ultraviolet and visible spectrophotometry (UV–Vis), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), High resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The UV–Vis and FTIR results explicated the obtained particles were sphere-shaped and the terpenoids of Euphorbia fischeriana had strong communications with gold surface. The HRTEM and XRD images exposed the produced gold nanoparticles...
