Long-term dynamics of death rates of emphysema, asthma, and pneumonia and improving air quality.
(Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis, 2014)
BACKGROUND: The respiratory tract is a major target of exposure to air pollutants, and respiratory diseases are associated with both short- and long-term exposures. We hypothesized that improved air quality in North Carolina ...
Trends in anemia management in US hemodialysis patients 2004-2010.
(BMC Nephrol, 2013-12-01)
BACKGROUND: There have been major changes in the management of anemia in US hemodialysis patients in recent years. We sought to determine the influence of clinical trial results, safety regulations, and changes in reimbursement ...
Fibroblast growth factor 23 is not associated with and does not induce arterial calcification.
(Kidney international, 2013-06)
Elevated fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is associated with cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease. As a potential mediating mechanism, FGF23 induces left ventricular hypertrophy; however, its ...
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 ...
Outcomes of Patients with Critical Limb Ischaemia in the EUCLID Trial.
(European journal of vascular and endovascular surgery : the official journal of the European Society for Vascular Surgery, 2018-01)
OBJECTIVES:Critical limb ischaemia (CLI) implies an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and the optimal antithrombotic treatment is not established. DESIGN, MATERIALS, METHODS:The EUCLID trial investigated ...
Ticagrelor versus clopidogrel in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease and prior coronary artery disease: Insights from the EUCLID trial.
(Vascular medicine (London, England), 2018-12)
Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at heightened risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We sought to evaluate the risk of concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with symptomatic PAD ...
