Aspirin use is not associated with lower thyroid cancer risk: A nationwide nested case-control study.

Aspirin use is not associated with lower thyroid cancer risk: A nationwide nested case-control study. Thyroid. 2020 Jan 17;: Authors: Lee YK, Hwangbo Y, Lee S, Lee DE, Lee EK, Yeom MS, Joo J, Kong SY Abstract Background While aspirin use is known to be associated with reduced incidence of various cancer types, it is unclear if this benefit extends to thyroid cancer. We aimed to evaluate the association between aspirin use and thyroid cancer development. Methods This nested case-control study used nationwide data from the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort 2002-2015. In total, 4,547 individuals with newly developed thyroid cancer were matched with 13,641 controls based on age, sex, and follow-up period. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for thyroid cancer development according to aspirin use were analyzed using a multivariable conditional logistic regression model. Results The number of days for which patients with thyroid cancer used aspirin (the proportions of no use,

Conclusion: Cancer patients carry a high burden of CVD-related comorbidities before the application of VEGF antagonists. HTN is the most prevalent comorbid condition, and cancer patients with HTN constitute substantial cardiovascular risks and a higher co-prevalence of other CVDs.

The majority of doctors will tell you that there is nothing you can do to reverse fatty liver and that health problems such as cirrhosis and liver failure may be in your future that they will address with the awful “solution” of liver transplant. The truth is the opposite: fatty liver is easily and readily reversible in virtually everybody, provided you take action before irreversible changes take place and are given the right information and tools. In this video, I discuss the three basic phenomena that drive fat deposition, liver damage, and inflammation that lead to this condition: Carbohydrate consumption ...

This study included 1456 men and 1411 women who were trauma-exposed and underwent routine health examinations in a community epidemiological investigation. The participants completed the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Check List-Civilian Version (PCL-C) for PTSD and medical examinations to detect metabolic syndrome. Adjustments for age, marriage, exercise, education, cigarette smoking, cancer, stroke, angina, and thyroid disease were performed. The relationship between PTSD and metabolic syndrome and each of its components was analyzed by multiple logistic regression. In women, PTSD was associated with metabolic syn...

The objectives of this study were to evaluate the association of radioiodine treatment for hyperthyroidism with overall cancer and with specific cancer types. METHODS: This is a historical cohort study, using the Clalit healthcare database. Participants were all adults with a new diagnosis of hyperthyroidism in 2002 to 2015, newly treated with radioactive iodine, or with thionamides (propylthiouracil/thiamazole), excluding patients with previous malignancies. Age, sex, smoking history, body mass index, Clalit district, socioeconomic status, history of diabetes mellitus and of hypertension, use of aspirin and of statins...

This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

We present a contemporary analysis of risk of fatal stroke among more than 7.5 million cancer patients and report that stroke risk varies as a function of disease site, age, gender, marital status, and time after diagnosis. The risk of stroke among cancer patients is two times that of the general population and rises with longer follow-up time. The relative risk of fatal stroke, versus the general population, is highest in those with cancers of the brain and gastrointestinal tract. The plurality of strokes occurs in patients older than 40 years of age with cancers of the prostate, breast, and colorectum. Patients of any ag...

Publication date: 15 December 2019Source: Life Sciences, Volume 239Author(s): Giuseppina Nicolini, Francesca Forini, Claudia Kusmic, Giorgio Iervasi, Silvana BalzanAbstractThe angiopoietin signal transduction system is a complex of vascular-specific kinase pathways that plays a crucial role in angiogenesis and maintenance of vascular homeostasis. Angiopoietin1 (Ang1) and 2 (Ang2), the ligand proteins of the pathway, belong to a family of glycoproteins that signal primarily through the transmembrane Tyrosine-kinase-2 receptor. Despite a considerable sequence homology, Ang1 and Ang2 manifest antagonistic effects in pathophys...

Purpose of review There is increasing interest in the environmental and human damage caused by pollutants. Big efforts are continuously made to monitor their levels and identify safe thresholds. For this purpose, an essential step is to prioritize harmful substances and understand their effect on human body. Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) deserve particular attention because of their wide diffusion and potential correlation with different diseases including glucose intolerance, hyperlipidaemia, thyroid diseases, gestational diabetes mellitus and hypertension, testicular and genitourinary cancer as well as impaired kidne...

CONCLUSIONS: PFS in our non-trial population was significantly shorter than in the SELECT trial population. In the interpretation of results, differences in the real life population and the SELECT study population regarding patient characteristics should be taken into account.
