Abstract Cholesterol efflux is the initial step in the reverse cholesterol transport pathway by which excess cholesterol in peripheral cells is exported and subsequently packaged into high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles. Adiponectin is the most abundantly secreted adipokine that possesses anti-inflammatory and vasculoprotective properties via interaction with transmembrane receptors, AdipoR1 and AdipoR2. Evidence suggests that low levels of adiponectin may be a useful marker for atheroscler...

Abstract Background Cardiovascular diseases are the leading contributors to disease burden in China and globally, and household air pollution exposure is associated with risk of cardiovascular disease. Objectives We evaluated whether subclinical cardiovascular outcomes in adult Chinese women would improve after distribution of an energy package comprised of a semi-gasifier cookstove, water heater, chimney, and supply of processed biomass fuel. Methods We enrolled 204 households (n = 205 women) f...

Objective Atherosclerosis and its thrombotic complications are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Plaque stability assessment is considered to be important for both clinical and fundamental applications. The current gold standard method to investigate plaque stability is performed by histological assessment of plaque features using semi-quantitative classifications. However, these assessments can be limited by subjectivity and variability. Thus, the aim was to develop a new digit...

Abstract Hypertension guidelines have evolved significantly over the past 40 years and have become a key element in a multipronged strategy to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with hypertension in Canada. According to many measures, Canada’s guidelines have been effective, and have likely been a significant factor in improving population hypertension awareness and control rates and reducing cardiovascular mortality. Canada has created a successful template for guideline creation, im...
