Authors: Huang M, Zheng J, Chen Z, You C, Huang Q Abstract Coronary collateral circulation (CCC) plays a crucial role in myocardial blood supply, especially for ischemic myocardium. Previous study has shown that neuregulin-1 is a prominent angiogenic factor in diabetic cardiomyopathy, whereas the relationship between neuregulin-1 and CCC has not been investigated. Thus, we aimed to investigate relationship between circulating neuregulin-1 levels and CCC in stable coronary artery disease patients.Coronary artery disease patients with a stenosis of ≥ 90% as evidenced by coronary angiography were included in our st...

Authors: Wu CC, Chang CS, Hsu CC, Wang CP, Tsai IT, Lu YC, Houng JY, Chang CC, Chung FM, Lee YJ, Hung WC Abstract Low-circulating levels of adiponectin (ADPN) are associated with obesity, diabetes mellitus, and coronary artery disease. On the contrary, some studies have demonstrated a link between relatively high levels of plasma ADPN and heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and adverse outcome. However, little is known about the relationship between ADPN level and prolonged QT interval. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between plasma ADPN levels and prolonged QT interval in patients with sta...

Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...

The HPV vaccine has proven to be a disaster. This vaccine, developed to protect young women from cervical cancer, has failed to provide protection. In fact, it has succeeded in doing the opposite by increasing cervical cancer rates in those vaccinated. Reports of health damage caused by this vaccine are immense. The HPV vaccination has been linked with life-threatening autoimmune disorders, cancer, paralysis, infertility and death. In fact, several countries have opposed the vaccine, as evidenced through public warning or lawsuits. A lead researcher of the vaccine has advised parents not to use it. One independent group of...
