Impact of increases in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol on cardiovascular outcomes during the armed forces regression study.
(J Cardiovasc Pharmacol Ther, 2010-12)
INTRODUCTION: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is a well-established inverse risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The extent to which cardiovascular risk can be modified through changes in HDL, however, is less ...
Phobic anxiety and increased risk of mortality in coronary heart disease.
(Psychosom Med, 2010-09)
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether phobic anxiety is associated with increased risk of cardiac mortality in individuals with established coronary heart disease (CHD) and to examine the role of reduced heart rate variability ...
Risk factors for and estimated incidence of community-associated Clostridium difficile infection, North Carolina, USA.
(Emerg Infect Dis, 2010-02)
We determined estimated incidence of and risk factors for community-associated Clostridium difficile infection (CA-CDI) among patients treated at 6 North Carolina hospitals. CA-CDI case-patients were defined as adults (>18 ...
Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis.
(J Heart Valve Dis, 2010-11)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates mitral stenosis, with a subset of these patients exhibiting pressures well in excess of their mitral valve hemodynamics. The prevalence of this ...
Factors associated with mortality in transplant patients with invasive aspergillosis.
(Clin Infect Dis, 2010-06-15)
BACKGROUND: Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) and solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate ...
Association of a peripheral blood metabolic profile with coronary artery disease and risk of subsequent cardiovascular events.
(Circ Cardiovasc Genet, 2010-04)
BACKGROUND: Molecular tools may provide insight into cardiovascular risk. We assessed whether metabolites discriminate coronary artery disease (CAD) and predict risk of cardiovascular events. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed ...
