Abstract Background The effect of individual saturated fatty acids (SFAs) on serum cholesterol levels depends on their carbon-chain length. Whether the association with myocardial infarction (MI) also differs across individual SFAs is unclear. We examined the association between consumption of individual SFAs, differing in chain lengths ranging from 4 through 18 carbons, and risk of MI. Methods We used data from 22,050 and 53,375 participants from EPIC-Norfolk (UK) and EPIC-Denmark, respectively...

This study aims to investigate the causal relation between circulating phylloquinone (vitamin K1) concentrations and type 2 diabetes using a Mendelian Randomization (MR) approach. We used data from thee cohorts: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-InterAct case-cohort study, Diabetes Genetics Replication and Meta-analysis (DIAGRAM) and the UK Biobank, resulting in 69,647 type 2 diabetes cases. We calculated a weighted genetic risk score including four genetic ...

Vitamin D supplementation has been widely promoted to restore 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations; however, experimental evidence suggests a nutrient interaction with vitamin K. We assessed the effects of 1200 IU vitamin D3 per day versus placebo for six months on vitamin K status in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with participants aged 60–80 years with depressive symptoms and ≥1 functional limitation for a secondary analysis. Stored baseline and six-month follow-up blood sa...

Importance It is uncertain to what extent established cardiovascular risk factors are associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE). Objective To estimate the associations of major cardiovascular risk factors with VTE, ie, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Design, Setting, and Participants This study included individual participant data mostly from essentially population-based cohort studies from the Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration (ERFC; 731 728 participants; 75 cohorts; years of ...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to investigate whether plasma matrix Gla protein (MGP) species, desphospho-uncarboxylated (dp-uc) MGP, and total uncarboxylated (t-uc) MGP are associated with plaque levels of uncarboxylated (uc) MGP, markers of plaque stability, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. METHODS: From the Athero-Express biobank, we selected carotid plaque samples of 100 patients who underwent carotid endarterectomy. The level of agreement between plasma MGP species and plaque ucMGP levels...

We conducted the first prospective observational study in which we examined the association between incretin responses to an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and mixed meal test (MMT) at baseline and changes in fasting glucose levels 7 years later, in individuals who were non-diabetic at baseline. We used data from the Hoorn Meal Study; a population-based cohort study among 121 subjects, aged 61.0±6.7y. GIP and GLP-1 responses were determined at baseline and expressed as total and incremental ...

Higher-educated people often have healthier diets, but it is unclear whether specific dietary patterns exist within educational groups. We therefore aimed to derive dietary patterns in the total population and by educational level and to investigate whether these patterns differed in their composition and associations with the incidence of fatal and non-fatal CHD and stroke. Patterns were derived using principal components analysis in 36 418 participants of the European Prospective Investigation...

Arterial calcification is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Whether different patterns of calcification are differentially associated with CVD risk is unknown. We assessed the association of increasing severity of annular calcification in the thoracic aorta (TA), abdominal aorta (AA
