: Testosterone deficiency (Td) has been associated with the metabolic syndrome. Few studies have evaluated this condition in type 1 diabetes (T1D). The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of testosterone undecanoate (TU) on insulin sensitivity, glycemic control, anthropometric parameters, blood pressure and lipid profile in patients with Td and T1D. We performed a randomized placebo-controlled multicenter study. INCLUSION CRITERIA: a) age ≥ 18 years; b) autoimmune diabetes; c) Td (total testosterone <10 nmol/L or calculated free testosterone <225 pmol/L and low/normal LH; d) ability to sign informed consent; e) comply with the study protocol...

OBJECTIVES: In ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients, cardiac and vascular involvement may manifest as atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, increased low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and decreased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol constitute a significant risk for atherosclerosis. This study investigated the relationship between carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), LDL/HDL ratio, total oxidant status (TOS; an indicator of oxidative stress) and ischemic modified albumin (IMA; an ischemic marker in AS patients)...

BACKGROUND: Circulating immune complexes (IC) containing modified forms of LDL (mLDL) are strongly pro-inflammatory and when present in high levels are associated with the development of diabetic complications. OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether levels of oxidized LDL (oxLDL), malondialdehyde-LDL (MDA-LDL) and advanced glycation end products-LDL (AGE-LDL) as well as IgG and IgM antibodies reacting with MDA-lysine epitopes expressed by oxLDL and MDA-LDL isolated from circulating IC were associated with progression to macroalbuminuria in type 2 diabetes (VADT cohort)...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with a 50% increased risk in cardiovascular mortality. Inflammation is thought to accelerate atherosclerosis and might also lead to an inflammatory rupture-prone plaque phenotype. We tested the hypothesis that patients with active rheumatoid arthritis also have carotid plaque inflammation and that plaque inflammation correlates with clinical and serological markers of inflammation. METHODS: Patients with active rheumatoid arthritis, defined as the Disease Activity Score in 28 joints (DAS28) score of more than 3·2, were recruited to a single centre study in the UK...

PURPOSE: To determine in a large multiethnic cohort the cardiovascular and genetic risk factors associated with smaller volume in the hippocampus, precuneus, and posterior cingulate, and their association with preclinical deficits in cognitive performance in patients younger and older than 50 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The institutional review board approved the study and all participants provided written informed consent. Eligible for this study were 1629 participants (700 men and 929 women; mean age, 50...

Cerebrovascular accident or stroke is defined by an abrupt onset of neurological deficit that is attributable to a focal vascular cause. Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. This may result from brain infarction or hemorrhage. Carotid atherosclerosis is a reasonable risk factor for cerebral ischemic stroke. Deranged lipid metabolism due to various modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors leads to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. This study is intended to find out any association between altered lipid metabolism (Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL : HDL ratio) and development of cerebral ischemia...

BACKGROUND: Adverse effects of dietary intake of trans-fatty acids (TFA) on the incidence of coronary artery disease (CAD) are well recognized in Western countries. The risk of TFA, however, has not been well clarified in Japan. We investigated the association of serum TFA concentration with serum lipid profile, coronary risk factors, and prevalence of CAD. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 902 patients, who were hospitalized at Kobe University Hospital from July 2008 to March 2012 and gave written informed consent, were enrolled in this study...

PURPOSE: Blue-collar workers have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Accordingly, elevated levels of biomarkers related to risk of cardiovascular disease, such as high-sensitive C-reactive protein, have been observed among blue-collar workers. The objective was to examine whether an aerobic exercise worksite intervention changes the level of inflammation biomarkers among cleaners. METHODS: The design was a cluster-randomized controlled trial with 4-month worksite intervention...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of our study was to evaluate visit-to-visit blood pressure variability (BPV) and the association of this parameter with cardiovascular risk determinants, according to the SEPHAR II survey. METHODS: Following a selection based on the multi-stratified proportional sampling procedure, a total of 1975 subjects who gave informed consent were evaluated by means of a questionnaire, anthropometric, blood pressure (BP) and arterial stiffness measurements (pulse wave velocity and augmentation index), 12-lead ECG recordings, and blood and urine analysis...

INTRODUCTION: Our prior publication suggested that elevated serum concentrations of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) was protective against the development of acute mountain sickness (AMS) while an inflammatory response was contributory to its development. The use of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme-A-reductase inhibitors ("statins") may be of interest to those traveling to altitude-these medications will lower serum LDL concentrations, but are also reported to have anti-inflammatory properties...

BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation causes disturbances in the lipid metabolism. When this dyslipidemia becomes prolonged it increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Recent literature reveals similar dyslipidemia in patients with lichen planus. However, the results were not compared with lichenoid reactions. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to profile the lipid levels and metabolic syndrome status in patients with oral lichen planus (OLP), oral lichenoid reactions (OLR) and healthy individuals in order to evaluate their respective cardiovascular risk...

BACKGROUND: Despite advances in nutritional support and intensive care, preterm infants are at higher risk of compromised neurodevelopment. OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the contribution of total parenteral nutrition (PN) to compromised neurodevelopment after preterm birth. METHODS: Preterm pigs were provided PN or enteral nutrition (EN) for 10 d. Neurodevelopment was assessed by observations of motor activity and evaluation of sensory/motor reflexes, brain weight, MRI, and cerebellar histology...

BACKGROUND: Hormonal contraceptives (HCs) have been shown to alter lipid profile among various population groups with different patterns of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular (CV) risk. The study aimed at determining the lipid profile pattern and CV risk in a Ghanaian cohort. METHODS: Purposive random sampling was done. Forty-seven and 19 cases were on oral contraceptives (OCs) and injectable contraceptives (ICs), respectively; five were on subdermal implant. Twenty-four non-users served as controls...
