The high prevalence of arterial calcification in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is far beyond the explanation by common cardiovascular risk factors such as aging, diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. The finding relies on the fact that vascular and valvular calcifications are predictors of cardiovascular diseases and mortality in persons with chronic renal failure. In addition to traditional cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes mellitus and blood pressure control, other ESRD-related risks such as phosphate retention, excess calcium, and prolonged dialysis time also contribute to the development of vascular calcification...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Patients with adrenal incidentaloma present a wide range of cortisol secretion, which is not always properly defined by first-line screening tests recommended to rule out Cushing's syndrome (CS), such as 1-mg dexamethasone suppression test (1-mg DST), late night salivary cortisol (LNSC), or 24-h urinary free cortisol (UFC). Therefore, we examined the diagnostic performance of each screening test in patients with adrenal incidentaloma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a series of 164 consecutive patients with adrenal incidentaloma, we measured serum cortisol after 1-mg DST, LNSC, and UFC (with LC-MS/MS)...

Lipids disorder is the principal cause of atherosclerosis and may present with several forms, according to blood lipoprotein prevalence. One of the most common forms is combined dyslipidemia, characterized by high levels of triglycerides and low level of high-density lipoprotein. Single lipid-lowering drugs may have very selective effect on lipoproteins; hence, the need to use multiple therapy against dyslipidemia. However, the risk of toxicity is a concerning issue. In this review, the effect and safety of an approved combination therapy with simvastatin plus fenofibrate are described, with an analysis of pros and cons resulting from randomized multicenter trials, meta-analyses, animal models, and case reports as well...
