n Morten Goodwin Physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including the world’s major non-communicable diseases, such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, shortening life expectancy. There are minimal medical care and personal trainers’ methods to monitor a patient’s actual physical activity types. To improve activity monitoring, we propose an artificial-intelligence-based approach to classify physical movement activity patterns. In more detail, we employ two deep learning (DL) methods, namely a deep feed-forward neural network (D...

Transpl Immunol. 2021 Aug 7:101444. doi: 10.1016/j.trim.2021.101444. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9(PCSK9) monoclonal antibody (Mab; Evolocumab) has been reported to inhibit low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and Lipoprotein(a) [LP(a)] in coronary heart diseases (CHD) patients in America, Europe and Japan. However, little is known about the effect of Evolocumab in Chinese population. This retrospective study in Chinese CHD patients compared the efficacy without or with Evolocumab therapy added to the conventional treatment with a statin (Rosuvast...

In conclusion, our study demonstrated that elevated cumulative SBP or DBP was independently associated with increased risk of CVD in the Chinese population. Among participants with 15-year cumulative BP levels higher than the median, that is, 1970.8/1239.9 mmHg-year for cumulative SBP/DBP, which was equivalent to maintaining SBP/DBP level higher than 131/83 mmHg in 15 years, the CVD risk would increase significantly irrespective of whether or not the BP measurements at one examination was high. Our findings emphasize the importance of cumulative BP level in identifying individuals with high risk of CVD in the future. ...

tilio Guarini Background: In recent years, the scientific community has been paying ever more attention to the promotion of lifestyles aimed at the prevention of late toxicities related to anti-cancer treatments. Methods: Fondazione Italiana Linfomi (FIL) researchers conducted a systematic review in order to evaluate the evidence in favor of the promotion of lifestyles aimed at the prevention of the main sequelae of long-term classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in survivors treated at adulthood with first-line or second-line therapy, including autologous stem cell transplants (ASC...

In conclusion, iMSC-sEVs could rejuvenate the senescence of NPCs and attenuate the development of IVDD. Cell Signaling via Exosomes in the Development of Vascular Calcification https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/05/cell-signaling-via-exosomes-in-the-development-of-vascular-calcification/ Vascular calcification is a feature of aging, a process in which cells in the blood vessel wall take on inappropriate identities and activities that are more appropriate to bone tissue. Evidence of recent years implicates chronic inflammation and the presence of senescent cells in this process. Senescent cells caus...

This study is consistent with previous evidence showing that inflammaging, or age-related inflammation, is naturally heightened in the nervous system. Moreover, the authors disproved their hypothesis that anti-inflammatory microglia-specific genes are responsible for the elevated inflammatory response in aged brains since the expression of anti-inflammatory mediators was elevated in middle-aged brains following infection. Thus, the cause for the increase in pro-inflammatory genes remains to be elucidated. Mixed Results in Animal Studies of Gene Therapy Targeting Axonal Regrowth https://www.fightaging.org/archiv...

AbstractCardiovascular Disease (CVD) is one among the main factors for the increase in mortality rate worldwide. The analysis and prediction of this disease is yet a highly formidable task in medical data analysis. Recent advancements in technology such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and the need for automated models have paved the way for developing a more reliable and efficient model for predicting heart disease. Several researches have been carried out in predicting heart diseases but the focus on choosing the important attributes that play a significant role in predicting CVD is inadequate. Hence the choice of ri...

This study aimed to evaluate potential racial differences in the association between long-term levels of PM2.5 and the risk of all-cause, total CVD, and coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality among RTRs. This retrospective study consists of 93,857 non-smoking adults who received a renal transplant between 2001 and 2015. Time-dependent Cox regression was used to assess the association between annual concentrations of PM2.5 and mortality risk. In the multivariable-adjusted models, a 10 μg/m3 increase in ambient PM2.5 levels found increased risk of all-cause (HR = 3.45, 95% CI: 3.08–3.78), CVD (HR = 2.38, 95% CI: 1.9...
