Atherosclerosis (AS) is a type of chronic vascular disease, and its etiology is not yet fully understood. AS is characterized by lipid deposition, atherosclerotic plaque formation, vascular stenosis or even complete blockage of the blood vessel wall. Clinical studies have shown that Danlou tablets (DLTs) can improve the heart function, quality of life, and prognosis of patients with coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction. However, its mechanism of action remains unknown. Our study revealed that DLTs ameliorated ApoE−/−AS mouse aortic atherosclerotic plaques [hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining and small a...

Written by Lucas Goss MD, peer reviewed by Meyers, Smith, BraceyA 76 year old female with a history of arial fibrillation not on anticoagulation, non-obstructive CAD found on coronary CTA 2 years prior, HTN, HLD, recurrent lightheadedness, and syncope status post loop recorder placement, presented for another episode of feeling lightheaded, diaphoretic, and feeling like she “was going to die.” She was discharged just the day prior for her second hospitalization for similar episodes. She was actually at the pharmacy to pick up her medicines the day after discharge when this episode occurred, and pharmacy staff s...

Conclusions: Influenza vaccination early after an MI or in high-risk coronary heart disease resulted in a lower risk of a composite of all-cause death, MI, or stent thrombosis, as well as a lower risk of all-cause death and cardiovascular death at 12 months compared with placebo. Clinical Trial Registration: URL: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov Unique identifier: NCT02831608.PMID:34459211 | DOI:10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.121.057042

This study attempted to reveal the role of luteolin (Lut) in I/R through mediation of the Src homology 2 domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase 1 (SHP-1)/Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) pathway. To establish I/R rat models, the left anterior descending artery (LAD) was ligated for 30  min and re-perfused for 1 h in Lut-pretreated or nude rats. Comparisons between infarct area, cardiac dysfunction, and myocardial cell death and inflammatory reaction were performed in I/R-induced rats. Hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) cell models were established by stimulating H9c2 cells with 95% ni t...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn this issue of The Journal of Rheumatology, Colantonio, et al 1 conducted a case-cohort study from the REGARDS study to evaluate whether the association between serum uric acid (SUA) and sudden cardiac death, and between SUA and incident coronary heart disease (CHD) events, is confounded by SLC2A9 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Incident CHD events were the composites of nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) or CHD deaths.PMID:34393102 | DOI:10.3899/jrheum.210695
