Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory circumstance, which has been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although RA management has been promoted, mortality rate due to CVD remains remarkable. Approximately, 50% of premature death cases in RA are attributable to CVD. RA patients develop atherosclerosis in a greater amount than the general population. Moreover, atherosclerotic lesions develop rapidly in RA patients and might be more susceptible to rupture. The inflammatory condition of RA, such as cytokines, abnormally activated immune cells, play a role in the initiation, perpetuation and exacerbation of atherosclerosis...

Sitosterolemia is a rare, autosomal recessively inherited disorder of lipid metabolism caused by mutations in the "ATP-binding cassette, subfamily G" member 5 and 8 proteins (encoded by the ABCG5 and ABCG8 genes, respectively), which play critical roles in the intestinal and biliary excretion of plant sterols. We report the clinical features and treatment outcomes of an 18-month-old Japanese girl with sitosterolemia, who presented with multiple linear and intertriginous xanthomas around the joint areas. Serum lipid analyses revealed elevated levels of total cholesterol (T-Chol: 866 mg/dL), low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C: 679 mg/dL), and plant sterols (sitosterol: 24...

Cardiovascular disease is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Accelerated atherosclerosis is related to traditional (age, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, obesity, smoking, and positive family history) and non-traditional, disease-related factors. Traditional risk factors are still more prominent in patients with lupus, as both hypertension and hypercholesterinemia were independently associated with premature atherosclerosis in several SLE cohorts...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (HoFH) is a rare inherited condition characterized by elevated plasma low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) levels, severe, accelerated atherosclerosis and premature coronary heart disease. We evaluated cardiovascular complications in HoFH patients over extended follow-up and investigated their association with changes in cholesterol over time, as well as total cholesterol burden. METHODS: In this retrospective single-centre study, 53 patients (baseline mean ± standard deviation [SD], total cholesterol 15...

Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) represents a strong risk for development of premature coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the majority of patients with FH are undiagnosed and the prevalence likely represents an underestimate in most countries. In Japan, the possible contribution of FH to the development of CAD may be higher because of the low incidence of CAD among the general population. We estimated the prevalence of heterozygous FH by measuring Achilles tendon thickness (ATT) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS)...

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is a well identified cause of mortality in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients due to an accelerated premature atherosclerosis. We investigated the proportion of comorbid IHD among SLE patients derived from a large, national real-life database. Using data from the largest HMO in Israel, the Clalit Health Services, we selected for patients with SLE. These patients were compared with age and sex matched controls with regards to the proportion of IHD in a case-control study...

Although chronic kidney disease (CKD) is strongly associated with onsets of cardiovascular disease (CVD), the pathogenic mechanism between these diseases has not been fully understood. To develop and validate new therapeutic strategies for this complication, appropriate experimental models that reflect the complexity of the underlying pathophysiology are needed. The Osborne-Mendel (OM) rat was identified as an atherosclerosis-prone and a premature-death rat strain among 16 inbred rat strains when fed high-cholesterol containing diet...

Cellular senescence is characterized by a permanent cell-cycle arrest and a pro-inflammatory secretory phenotype, and can be induced by a variety of stimuli, including ionizing radiation, oxidative stress, and inflammation. In endothelial cells, this phenomenon might contribute to vascular disease. Plasma levels of the inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) are increased in age-related and chronic conditions such as atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn's disease. Although TNFα is a known activator of the central inflammatory mediator NF-κB, and can induce the intracellular generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), the question whether TNFα can induce senescence has not been answered conclusively...

Mild form of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) may have a normal life span. However, cardiovascular complications including aortic and valvular heart disease, and coronary artery disease may complicate the life period. We presented a patient with mild form of OI and premature coronary atherosclerosis. He had been performed primary percutaneous angioplasty and drug eluting stent implantation to left anterior descending coronary artery osteal lesion. Then he presented with unstable angina pectoris due to the diffuse in-stent restenosis and a highly critical lesion adjacent to previously stented segment...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Statins reduce subclinical atherosclerosis and premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). However, some FH patients still develop ASCVD despite statin therapy. We compared subclinical atherosclerosis assessed by carotid plaque presence and intima media thickness (C-IMT), in long-term statin-treated FH patients and healthy controls. Furthermore, we analysed whether carotid ultrasonography findings associated with subclinical coronary atherosclerosis...

The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of risk factors (central obesity, hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia and arterial hypertension), indicating an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and premature mortality. The gastrointestinal tract is seldom discussed as an organ system of principal importance for metabolic diseases. The present overview connects various metabolic research lines into an integrative physiological context in which the gastrointestinal tract is included. Strong evidence for the involvement of the gut in the metabolic syndrome derives from the powerful effects of weight-reducing (bariatric) gastrointestinal surgery...
