Abstract Background Walking pace is increasingly being used to assess functional status in ambulatory settings. Methods We conducted a prospective analysis within the Physicians’ Health Study to examine whether walking pace is associated with mortality and incident cardiovascular disease (fatal or nonfatal myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass grafting and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty). Participants included 21,919 male physicians with a mean age of 67.8 ± 9.0 years. Re...

Abstract Background and aims Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as promising biomarkers for acute ischaemic stroke (AIS). However, the expression profiles of miRNAs in AIS patients receiving intravenous thrombolysis and their associations with outcome have not been investigated. Methods In a prospective cohort study, a total of 84 AIS patients, who received intravenous thrombolysis (21.4% received combined reperfusion therapy) and completed 3 month follow-up visits, were includ...

Abstract Background and aims Classically, peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is diagnosed by a low ankle-brachial index (ABI), but the diagnosis can also be made based on toe-brachial index (TBI) measurements. The objective of this study was to characterize patients with low TBI but normal ABI, and chart potential underestimation of PAD prevalence by solitary use of the ABI. Methods A total of 3739 consecutive patients with known or suspected PAD referred for ABI and TBI measurements in a four-ye...

Abstract Background and aims Vitamin D exists as an inactive 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) in the bloodstream, which is converted to active 1,25-dihydroxyvitaminD (1,25(OH)2D) in target tissues. Cohort studies reporting cardiovascular disease among individuals with low vitamin D are inconsistent and solely measure 25(OH)D. Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory disease, is a vitamin D deficient state and is associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk. While serum 25(OH)D is routinely measur...

Abstract Background and aims Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease; however, its exact pathogenesis remains unknown, and no specific medical therapies are available. Interleukin (IL)-18 plays a crucial role in atherosclerotic plaque destabilization and is a strong predictor of cardiovascular death. Here, we investigated the role of IL-18 in AAA pathogenesis using an experimental mouse model. Methods and results After infusion of angiotensin II (Ang II) for 4 weeks and β-aminopropio...

Abstract Background and aims Epidemiological evidence on the association between elevated lipoprotein (a) (Lp (a)) with risk of stroke remains inconsistent. We aimed to investigate the association between serum Lp (a) level and the risk of stroke among middle-aged and elderly Chinese. Methods A community-based prospective cohort study of 8500 participants aged 40 years or older was conducted in Jiading district, Shanghai, China, in 2010. The incident strokes were documented at follow-up visit in...

Abstract Background and aims Reproductive factors are associated with later life CVD in women (e.g., age at first birth, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes), but studies have focused largely on premenopausal women. We examined the relationship of reproductive factors with subclinical CVD burden in late midlife women. Methods We included 964 parous women from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN), who completed a reproductive history questionnaire at the 13th SWAN visit (2011–2012)...

Abstract Background and aims Several risk prediction models for coronary heart disease (CHD) are available today, however, they only explain a modest proportion of the incidence. Circulating microRNAs (miRs) have recently been associated with processes in CHD development, and may therefore represent new potential risk markers. The aim of the study was to assess the incremental value of adding circulating miRs to the Framingham Risk Score (FRS). Methods This is a case-control study with a 10-year...

Abstract Background and aims Neointimal hyperplasia resulting from pathological vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) activation is a common pathophysiological basis for numerous proliferative vascular diseases, such as restenosis. Suv39h1, an important transcription suppressor, may be involved in this process. Herein, we investigated the role of Suv39h1 in pathological intimal hyperplasia and its possible mechanisms in vitro and in vivo . Methods An adenovirus vector for Suv39h1 overexpression a...
