OBJECTIVE: Emerging evidence suggests a link between coronary artery disease and type 2 immunity. We sought to test the hypothesis that IgE sensitization to the mammalian oligosaccharide galactose-α-1,3-galactose (α-Gal)-the target allergen of delayed anaphylaxis to red meat-is associated with coronary artery disease. APPROACH AND RESULTS: Total IgE and specific IgE to α-Gal were assayed on sera from 118 subjects who presented for cardiac catheterization and underwent intravascular ultrasound...

Leptin, an adipokine that is implicated in the control of food intake via appetite suppression, may also stimulate oxidative stress, inflammation, thrombosis, arterial stiffness, angiogenesis and atherogenesis. These leptin-induced effects may predispose to the development of cardiovascular diseases. In the present review we discuss the evidence linking leptin levels with the presence, severity and/or prognosis of both coronary artery disease and non-cardiac vascular diseases such as stroke, carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease (PAD) and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) as well as with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)...

PURPOSE: Aspirin may have antineoplastic properties through inhibition of inflammatory cytokines that regulate cell proliferation, angiogenesis and apoptosis. For patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, aspirin use has been linked to a reduced risk of recurrence. Herein, we evaluated the association of aspirin with survival following radical cystectomy (RC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1061 patients underwent RC at our institution between 2007-2016, of whom 461 (43%) were aspirin users at the time of surgery...

RATIONALE: Evidence linking traffic-related particle exposure to systemic effects in chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) patients is limited. OBJECTIVES: Assess relationships between indoor black carbon (BC), a tracer of traffic-related particles, and plasma biomarkers of systemic inflammation and endothelial activation. METHODS: BC was measured by reflectance in fine particle samples over a mean of 7.6 days in homes of 85 COPD patients up to 4 times seasonally over a year...

Epidemiological studies have indicated that the risk of atherothrombotic coronary artery disease (CAD) is higher in patients with diabetes, but these results have not been consistently observed across clinical trials. To address this apparent discrepancy, we can apply the results of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to provide a better understanding of the shared genetic architecture of diabetes and atherothrombotic CAD. For instance, a large GWAS has identified 16 novel loci that are associated with both diabetes and atherothrombotic CAD...

Although statins have been suggested to attenuate the progression of diabetic cardiomyopathy, its effect without glycemic control remains unclear. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of pravastatin on diabetic rat hearts according to glycemic control. Rats were randomly divided into five groups: control (C), diabetes (D), diabetes with insulin (I), diabetes with pravastatin (P), and diabetes with insulin and pravastatin (IP). Eight weeks after allocated treatments, the heart was extracted and analyzed following echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: Research has revealed that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) may prevent cancers such as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The comparative chemopreventive effects of ACEIs and ARBs in high-risk populations with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection have yet to be investigated. METHODS: From 2005 to 2014, high-risk HBV and HCV cohorts of hypertensive patients without HCC history were recruited from three linked national databases of Taiwan, and were classified into two groups based on the ACEI or ARB exposure within the initial six months after initiating antiviral agent...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) assessment is vital part of liver transplantation (LT) evaluation as it allows for identification and medical optimization prior to transplantation. Although aspirin and statins are standard of care for CAD, they are not universally used in cirrhosis due to concerns of adverse events. METHODS: Per protocol, coronary angiography was performed as part of LT evaluation in all patients over the age of 50 years or with CAD risk factors even if they were younger than 50...

The roles of obesity, metabolic dysregulation and systemic inflammation to advance prostate carcinogenesis are unclear. This study investigates metabolic and inflammatory factors in the transition from high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) to prostate cancer (PC). We prospectively followed 160 men diagnosed with HGPIN at biopsy and therefore at high-risk and clinically monitored for PC. Analyses investigated body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, waist-hip ratio (WHR), height, fat mass, lean mass percent body fat, NSAIDs, statins, metformin, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia representing metabolic dysregulation on the risk of a PC diagnosis during follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Statin-induced myopathy has been linked to the C allele of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) (rs4149056) of SLCO1B1 gene. This effect is more significant, but not restricted to simvastatin. Many studies have included European, American, African and Southeast Asian ancestries, but few were carried out on Middle Eastern population. AIM: To detect the prevalence of SLCO1B1 rs4149056 (521T > C) in Emirati population. METHOD: We recruited 282 Emiratis through the UAE National Diabetes and Lifestyle Project...

BACKGROUND: Coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality in England fell by 36% between 2000 and 2007 and it is estimated that approximately 50% of the fall was due to improved treatment uptake. Marked socio-economic inequalities in CHD mortality in the United Kingdom (UK) remain, with higher age-adjusted rates in more deprived groups. Inequalities in the persistence of medication for primary and secondary prevention of CHD may contribute to the observed social gradient and we investigated this possibility in the population of Wales (UK)...

Ageing is a nonmodifiable risk factor that is linked to increased likelihood of cardiovascular morbidities. Whilst many pharmacological interventions currently exist to treat many of these disorders such as statins for hypercholesterolemia or beta-blockers for hypertension, the elderly appear to present a greater likelihood of suffering non-related side effects such as increased risk of developing new onset type 2 diabetes (NODM). In some cases, lower efficacy in the elderly have also been reported. Alternative forms of treatment have been sought to address these issues, and there has been a growing interest in looking at herbal remedies or plant-based natural compounds...

BACKGROUND: A recent comprehensive report on healthcare quality in Italy published by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) recommended that regular monitoring of quality of primary care by means of compliance with standards of care for chronic diseases is performed. A previous ecological study demonstrated that compliance with standards of care could be reliably estimated on regional level using administrative databases. This study compares estimates based on administrative data with estimates based on GP records for the same persons, to understand whether ecological fallacy played a role in the results of the previous study...

BACKGROUND: Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a sentinel marker for future cardiovascular disease and has been described as providing a "window of curability" for men to receive targeted cardiovascular risk assessment. AIM: To determine whether the prescription of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5is) for ED leads to the detection and treatment of previously undiagnosed cardiometabolic risk factors. METHODS: We performed a retrospective population-based cohort study of residents of British Columbia, Canada using linked health care databases from 2004 to 2011...

OBJECTIVES: In 2009 and 2010, 17 primary care sites within 1 healthcare system became patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs), but the sites trained different personnel (pharmacists vs nurses) to improve diabetes care using self-management support (SMS). We report the challenges and successes of our efforts to: 1) assemble a new multipayer (Medicare, Medicaid, commercial) claims dataset linked to a clinical registry and 2) use the new dataset to perform comparative effectiveness research on implementation of the 2 SMS models...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and dementia are major health issues, with growing evidence suggesting a consistent association between AF and all forms of dementia. Although dementia and AF share several risk factors, the association appears to be independent of a history of clinical stroke and other comorbidities such as hypertension, heart failure, and diabetes. Proposed mechanisms linking AF to cognitive decline include altered hemodynamics resulting in cerebral hypoperfusion, inflammation, genetic factors, and silent cerebral ischemia due to subclinical microemboli...

Our goal was to measure the association of CXCL5 and molecular phenotypes associated with coronary atherosclerosis severity in patients at least 65 years old. CXCL5 is classically defined as a proinflammatory chemokine, but its role in chronic inflammatory diseases, such as coronary atherosclerosis, is not well defined. We enrolled individuals who were at least 65 years old and undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization. Coronary artery disease (CAD) severity was quantified in each subject via coronary angiography by calculating a CAD score...

We previously demonstrated that oligomeric amyloid β42 (oAβ42 ) inhibits the mevalonate pathway impairing cholesterol synthesis and protein prenylation. Enzymes of the mevalonate pathway are regulated by the transcription factor SREBP-2. Here, we show that in several neuronal types challenged with oAβ42 , SREBP-2 activation is reduced. Moreover, SREBP-2 activation is also decreased in the brain cortex of the Alzheimer's disease (AD) mouse model, TgCRND8, suggesting that SREBP-2 may be affected in vivo early in the disease...

BACKGROUND: Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs; including candesartan, losartan, olmesartan and valsartan) are widely used to treat hypertension, heart failure and diabetic neuropathy. There is considerable pre-clinical evidence that ARBs can reduce cancer progression, particularly for gastric cancer. Despite this, epidemiological studies have yet to assess the impact of ARB use on gastro-oesophageal cancer survival. AIM: To investigate the association between post-diagnosis ARB use and gastro-oesophageal cancer survival...
