Dietary Patterns Associated with Cognitive Function among the Older People in Underdeveloped Regions: Finding from the NCDFaC Study.
Although dietary patterns are crucial to cognitive function, associations of dietary patterns with cognitive function have not yet been fully understood. This cross-sectional study explored dietary patterns associated with ...
Association between novel PLCE1 variants identified in published esophageal cancer genome-wide association studies and risk of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(BMC cancer, 2011-06-20)
Phospholipase C epsilon 1 (PLCE1) (an effector of Ras) belonging to the phospholipase family plays crucial roles in carcinogenesis and progression of several cancers, including squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck ...
Site disparities in apoptotic variants as predictors of risk for second primary malignancy in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(BMC cancer, 2016-02-08)
FAS/FASL promoter variants are considered in altering transcriptional activity of those genes and consequently alter regulation of cell death. However, no studies have investigated whether tumor sites contribute ...
Cognitive Function: Is There More to Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation Than Stroke?
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-08-03)
Genome-wide association study of acute kidney injury after coronary bypass graft surgery identifies susceptibility loci.
(Kidney Int, 2015-10)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common, serious complication of cardiac surgery. Since prior studies have supported a genetic basis for postoperative AKI, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) for AKI following ...
Right coronary wall CMR in the older asymptomatic advance cohort: positive remodeling and associations with type 2 diabetes and coronary calcium.
(J Cardiovasc Magn Reson, 2010-12-30)
BACKGROUND: Coronary wall cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a promising noninvasive approach to assess subclinical atherosclerosis, but data are limited in subjects over 60 years old, who are at increased risk. ...
Hypertension and obesity as cardiovascular risk factors among HIV seropositive patients in Western Kenya.
(PLoS One, 2011)
BACKGROUND: There is increased risk of cardiovascular disease among HIV seropositive individuals. The prevalence of HIV is highest in sub-Saharan Africa; however, HIV-related cardiovascular risk research is largely derived ...
A novel inflammatory biomarker, GlycA, associates with disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis and cardio-metabolic risk in BMI-matched controls.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2016-04-12)
BACKGROUND: RA and CVD both have inflammation as part of the underlying biology. Our objective was to explore the relationships of GlycA, a measure of glycosylated acute phase proteins, with inflammation and cardiometabolic ...
Catheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation in U.S. Community Practice--Results From Outcomes Registry for Better Informed Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation (ORBIT-AF).
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-05-21)
BACKGROUND: The characteristics of patients undergoing atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation and subsequent outcomes in community practice are not well described. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using the Outcomes Registry for Better Informed ...
Simplified Predictive Instrument to Rule Out Acute Coronary Syndromes in a High-Risk Population.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-12-14)
BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether diagnostic protocols based on cardiac markers to identify low-risk chest pain patients suitable for early release from the emergency department can be applied to patients older than 65 years ...
