Background: Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is synthesized mainly in the liver and an important marker in many infectious/inflammatory diseases, but its role in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients is not clear. We wished to ascertain if BChE level is associated with the progression/prognosis of AIDS patients. Methods: BChE levels (in U/L) were measured in 505 patients; <4500 was defined as "low" and ≥4500 as "normal." Associations between BChE level and CD4 count, WHO stage, body mass index (BMI), C-reactive protein (CRP) level, and duration of hospitalization were assessed...

Background: We previously showed in patients with ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) that admission levels of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) predict infarct size. It remains unclear whether admission MIF alone or in combination with other biomarkers is useful for risk assessment of acute and chronic clinical outcomes in STEMI patients. Methods and Results: 566 STEMI patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were consecutively recruited...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The diagnosis of heart failure (HF) in elderly patients is often difficult, due to overlap of typical signs and symptoms with those of comorbidities. B-type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) predicts diagnosis and prognosis of HF, but little is known on its predictive role of short-term prognosis when admission diagnosis is other than HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively recruited 404 consecutive patients (aged≥65 years) hospitalized in the Unit of Internal Medicine, University of Catania, Catania, Italy, with an admission diagnosis other than HF...
