Abstract The health benefits and risks of menopausal hormone therapy among women aged 50-59 years are examined in the Women's Health Initiative randomized, placebo-controlled trials using long-term follow-up data and a parsimonious statistical model that leverages data from older participants to increase precision. These trials enrolled 27,347 healthy post-menopausal women aged 50-79 at 40 U.S. clinical centers during 1993-1998, including 10,739 post-hysterectomy participants in a trial of conjugated equine estrogens, and 16,608 participants with uterus in the trial of these estrogens plus medroxyprogesterone acet...

In this issue of the Journal, a group of distinguished Nordic researchers, led by Anne Helene Garde and including four of our Associated Editors, present a discussion paper that originated from a workshop and provides detailed recommendations on night shift work (1). The recommendations are very clear: to protect workers ’ health, night shift schedules should have: (i) ≤3 consecutive night shifts; (ii) shift intervals of ≥11 hours; and (iii) ≤9 hours shift duration. For pregnant women, night work should be limited to one shift per week. The authors acknowledge that under circumstances allowing better possibi...

ConclusionsTo calculate the DALY requires a substantial amount of data, methodological choices, interpretation and presentation of results, and the personnel capacity to carry out all these tasks. However, doing a National Burden of Disease study, and especially doing that for more than 20  years, proved to have an enormous additional value in population health information and thus supports better public health policies.

CONCLUSIONS: Awareness that heart disease is the LCOD among women declined from 2009 to 2019, particularly among Hispanic and non-Hispanic Black women and in younger women (in whom primordial/primary prevention may be most effective). An urgent redoubling of efforts by organizations interested in women's health is required to reverse these trends. PMID: 32954796 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes DOI: 10.1055/a-1235-5617Novel coronavirus infectious disease (COVID-19) has been recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) 1. Mortality and morbidity are higher in elderly individuals and those with comorbidities, such as diabetes mellitus (DM), obesity, hypertension, respiratory tract diseases, coronary heart disease or cancer 1. Indeed, two thirds of individuals who died from COVID-19 had DM in Italy 2. [...] © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents  |  Abstract&nb...

CONCLUSIONS: Multimorbid patients with ACS are at a greater risk for worse outcomes than their nonmultimorbid counterparts. Lack of consistent measurement makes interpretation of the impact of multimorbidity challenging and emphasizes the need for more research on multimorbidity's effects on postdischarge healthcare utilization.

ConclusionsWe did not find enough reliable evidence to find out whether a tax on the fat content of foods resulted in people eating less fat, or less saturated fat.We did not find any evidence about how a tax on the fat content of foods affected obesity or overweight.The results of our review will change when further evidence becomes available.Discussing the findings of this review, lead author Stefan Lhachimi said, “A tax on saturated fats could be in principle a good approach to reduce the consumption of so-called junk foods, a group of food products which is fiendishly tricky to define in legal terms. By taxing a ...

Authors: Liu G, Chen T, Ding Z Abstract Anlotinib hydrochloride is a multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor, which has been recently approved for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer in China. One of its mechanisms of action is the inhibition of angiogenesis and it is similar to other anti-angiogenesis drugs, as it has cardiovascular toxicity, which may damage vascular endothelial cells and result in hypertension and hyperlipidemia. All of the aforementioned factors are considered risk factors for coronary heart disease; however, the risk of developing acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has not been ...

Abstract DNA demethylases of the ten-eleven translocation (TET) family serve as tumor suppressors in various human cancers but their pathogenic contributions in coronary heart disease (CHD) progression remain unclear. Here we report that TET2 is transcriptionally upregulated in CHD patients where it demonstrates diagnostic efficiency. Mechanistic investigations revealed that TET2 facilitated inflammatory responses and cardiomyocyte apoptosis in rats through demethylation of microRNA-126 (miR-126) promoter. This interaction led to sequestration of miR-126 from its target E2F transcription factor 3 (E2F3), contribut...
