BACKGROUND Dysfunction of the thyroid gland has profound effects on the cardiovascular system. OBJECTIVE We aimed to explore the relation of serum thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO-Ab), as a marker of thyroid autoimmunity with incident hypertension among a euthyroid population. METHODS A total of 3681 participants (1647 men) entered the study. Multivariate Cox proportional hazard models were conducted to estimate the association between TPO-Ab and incident hypertension. RESULTS The mean age (stan...

Abstract Aims The aim of this study is to assess the American Diabetes Association (ADA) risk score as a self-assessment screening tool for undiagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in Iran. Methods In a national survey of risk factors for non-communicable diseases, we included 3458 Iranian adults. The discrimination and validity were assessed using the area under the curve (AUC), sensitivity, specificity, Youden's index, positive and negative predictive values (PPV and NPV). The frequency of high-risk...

High blood cholesterol is typically considered a feature of wealthy western countries1,2. However, dietary and behavioural determinants of blood cholesterol are changing rapidly throughout the world3 and countries are using lipid-lowering medications at varying rates. These changes can have distinct effects on the levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol, which have different effects on human health4,5. However, the trends of HDL and non-HDL cholesterol levels...

BACKGROUND: Cancer is a major cause of death in low A large number of studies have shown that some of the metabolic risk factors (MRFs) tend to cluster in individuals. We examined the synergistic effects of multiple MRFs and cancer risk among Iranian adults. METHODS: Among 8593 (3929 men) participants aged >/= 30 years, the self-organizing map (SOM) was applied to clustering of four MRFs including high fasting plasma glucose (HFPG), high total cholesterol (HTC), high systolic blood pressure (HSB...

Background: Hypertension, with a prevalence of 25.6% is a serious public health concern in Iran. Objective: To investigate the population-based incidence of hypertension and its potential risk factors in Tehranian adults during a median follow-up of 13.1 years. Methods: A total of 6,533 non-hypertensive participants (women = 3,639), aged ≥20 years participated in the study. Crude and age-standardized incidence rates per 1000 person-years were calculated for each sex, separately. Multivariable Co...

Abstract Background and aims We investigated whether the presence of metabolic risk factors in one spouse is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the other spouse. Methods A total of 4390 married participants (2152 men and 2238 women free of CVD at baseline) aged ≥20 years were included in this study. The association between spousal risk factors and incident CVD was estimated separately for men and women (as index individuals) using Cox regression models, with spousa...

Abstract Objectives To investigate the incidence rates for different malignancies and assess the risk factors for all-cancer incidence in Tehran. Study design Cohort study. Methods This study consists of 8599 participants aged ≥ 30 years who were free of cancer (3935 men). Cancer diagnosis was based on pathology reports. Sex-stratified crude incidence rates and age-standardized incidence rates (ASRs) using Segi's method were calculated for all-cancers. Multivariate Poisson regression models were...

BACKGROUND: To assess the impact of changes in different glucose tolerance states on risk of incident cardiovascular disease (CVD)/coronary heart disease (CHD). METHODS: A total of 4094 Iranians (43.9% men) aged >/= 30 years, without diabetes and CVD at enrolment were included. The following categories were defined both at baseline visit and 3 years later (second visit): normal fasting glucose (NFG), normal glucose tolerance (NGT), NFG and NGT (NFG/NGT), impaired fasting glucose (IFG), impaired ...

In this paper, joint modeling of longitudinal ordinal measurements and time to some events of interest as competing risks is discussed. For this purpose, a latent variable sub-model under linear mixed-effects assumption is considered for modeling ordinal longitudinal measurements. Also, a Weibull cause-specific sub-model is used to model competing risks data. These two sub-models are simultaneously considered in a unique model by a shared parameter model framework. Some simulation studies are pe...
