Authors: Gökaslan S, DemirbaƟ H, Özer Gökaslan Ç Abstract BACKGROUND/AIM: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by neurodegeneration or demyelination, and the relapsing?remitting phase of MS is characterized by acute exacerbation of disease activity. The most commonly used non-invasive approach to assess autonomic function is the determination of heart rate turbulence (HRT) and heart rate variability (HRV). The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction using HRT and HRV parameters determined via 24-hour Holter ECG monitorin...

Improving the outcomes of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease with end-stage heart failure depends on the collaboration of all stakeholders; this includes providers, patients and families, and industry representatives. Because of the rarity of this condition and the heterogeneity of heart failure etiologies that occur at pediatric centers, learnings must be shared between institutions and all disciplines to move the field forward. To foster collaboration, excel discovery, and bring data to the bedside, a new, collaborative quality improvement science network—ACTION (Advanced Cardiac Therapies Improving O...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIndividuals with metabolically unhealthy normal weight (MUNW) have an adverse cardiometabolic risk factor profile in the absence of excess body weight, and increased risk for diabetes and heart disease. We critically review some physiological traits and lifestyle characteristics of the MUNW phenotype.Recent FindingsThe prevalence of MUNW varies considerably around the world and among ethnicities, partly because of different definitions; on average, this phenotype affects about ~  30% of normal weight persons globally. Most studies have recruited MUNW subjects who, although within the normal ...

Dr. Laura Mulvey, 33, practices emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After spending six days receiving treatment in her own hospital, she is now recovering at home from what is presumed to be COVID-19, though her test was inconclusive. What follows is a lightly-edited transcript of her story as told to TIME. Early on, sometime in February, [COVID-19] was something that people were thinking about. And worried about. Certainly, the worries were not what they are now. But hospital-wise, we had a bit of an earlier jump on it, because we recognized that this was a potential threat. We’re ...

The cellular housekeeping mechanisms of autophagy act to recycle proteins and structures within the cell. Upregulation of autophagy appears to be a crucial part of the reason why the response to mild stresses - such as heat, cold, lack of nutrients, and toxins - can actually improve cell and tissue function. Certainly the practice of calorie restriction relies upon functional autophagy in order to extend healthy life span. Researchers here note that autophagy is important in the maintenance of the many stem cell populations throughout the body that are required for ongoing tissue maintenance. The characteristic impairment ...

(American College of Cardiology) In a study with the longest follow-up to date of patients with a high-risk form of heart disease known as left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD), researchers found no significant differences in rates of death, heart attack or stroke between patients who were treated with a stent and those who underwent heart bypass surgery. The research was presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).

sco Salvo Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), the treatment of choice for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), can be associated to cardiovascular (CV) adverse events (AEs). A case/non-case study was performed using AE reports registered in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) database to compare the risk of CV event reports related to TKIs indicated in the management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Disproportionality of CV event-related TKIs was computed using the Reporting Odds Ratio (ROR) as a measure of potential risk increase. Nilotinib accounts for more than half of reported ...
