Publication date: March–April 2020Source: Reports of Practical Oncology &Radiotherapy, Volume 25, Issue 2Author(s): Ramaiah Vinay Kumar, Suman BhaskerAbstractObesity has become epidemic both in developed and developing countries. Socio-economic (SE) development has resulted in increased prevalence of obesity across all social groups in developing countries that is contrary to the effects of rising SE status on prevalence of obesity in the developed world. Obesity is not only associated with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, diabetes but is also a risk factor for cancer and is responsible for increased c...

Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular Basis of DiseaseAuthor(s): Lu Han, Stefanie Bittner, Dachuan Dong, Yuan Cortez, Alex Bittner, Jackie Chan, Meenakshi Umar, Wen-Jun Shen, Richard G. Peterson, Fredric B. Kraemer, Salman AzharAbstractIn recent years, the prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes is increasing dramatically. They share pathophysiological mechanisms and often lead to cardiovascular diseases. The ZDSD rat was suggested as a new animal model to study diabetes and the metabolic syndrome. In the current study, we have furthe...

AbstractIntroductionMetabolic syndrome (MetS) is a risk factor for cardiovascular-related morbidity and mortality. Although the risk factors for MetS are well documented, differences in gender-based demographics among Kenyan adults with central obesity are lacking.AimDetermine gender differences in the pattern of socio-demographics relevant to metabolic syndrome among Kenyan adults with central obesity at a mission hospital, Nairobi.MethodsA cross-sectional baseline survey involving adults (N  = 404) with central obesity aged 18–64 years, as part of a community-based lifestyle intervention study. R...

AbstractPurposeSpinal cord injury (SCI) affects sexual health of both male and female, but little attention has been given to sexuality of SCI women. Similar to penile erection, vaginal lubrication represents a neurovascular event and then both denervation and vascular damage might contribute to its impairment. Nevertheless, the relative weight of lesion location/degree and vascular risk factors in determining hypolubrication in women with SCI has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to recognize among putative determinants of poor sexual arousal in women with SCI, neurogenic and vascular/metabolic independ...

Conclusion: There was a high prevalence of MetS and abnormal ECG among the studied population. Abnormal ECG findings were more common in men with no differential association in people with or without MetS. However, a significant association existed between certain components of MetS and ECG abnormalities in men only. Male gender and HDLc were independent predictors of ECG Abnormalities.Keyword: Electrocardiography, metabolic syndrome, africans.

Abstract BACKROUND: Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a leukocyte-derived enzyme that has been associated with cardiovascular diseases in many studies. Together with hydrogen peroxide and a halogen, MPO forms a very strong antimicrobial system and there is evidence of links between MPO and inflammation in cardiovascular diseases. Brachial flow-mediated dilation (FMD) refers to a physiologic measure, and carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) is an anatomic structural measure of subclinical atherosclerosis. This research aimed to assess the correlation of MPO serum levels with subclinical atherosclerosis i...
