Abstract Atherosclerosis is a vascular disease responsible for acute heart attacks and stroke, which are leading causes of death not only in industrialized countries but also worldwide, and the number of patients afflicted by this disease has been increasing in Japan. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the plasma lipoprotein that carries what is often called your "good cholesterol" through the blood. This good cholesterol moniker is associated with HDL because higher circulating levels of this lipoprotein are associated with a well-known reduction in the risk of arteriosclerosis. Moreover, many protective...

CONCLUSIONS: Cold-induced BAT activity at baseline seems to correlate with lower levels of conventional cardiovascular risk factors at baseline and with lower carotid intima-media thickness and higher carotid elasticity at 5-year follow-up. PMID: 31941384 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings demonstrate that WPS exposure directly modulates hemostasis and increases the risk of thrombosis and that this is mediated, in part, via a state of platelet hyperactivity. The negative health impact of WPS/hookah, therefore, should not be underestimated. Moreover, this study should also help in raising public awareness of the toxic effects of waterpipe/hookah.Visual Overview: An online visual overview is available for this article.

CONCLUSIONS: This study for the first time demonstrates that TMAO promotes vascular calcification through activation of NLRP3 inflammasome and NF-κB signals, suggesting the potential link between gut microbial metabolism and vascular calcification. Reducing the levels of TMAO could become a potential treatment strategy for vascular calcification in chronic kidney disease. PMID: 31941382 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
