AIMS To explore early intensive lipid-lowering therapy in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). BACKGROUND Lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels can reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Due to many reasons, the need for early intensive lipid-lowering therapy is far from being met in Chinese NSTE-ACS patients at high-risk of recurrent ischaemic events. OBJECTIVE To evaluate...

Obesity and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are becoming more common among pregnant women worldwide and are individually associated with a number of placenta-mediated obstetric complications, including preeclampsia, macrosomia, intrauterine growth restriction and stillbirth. The placenta serves several functions throughout pregnancy and is the main exchange site for the transfer of nutrients and gas from mother to fetus. In pregnancies complicated by maternal obesity or GDM, the placenta is ...

BACKGROUND The increasing incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) threatens the Middle Eastern population. Several epidemiological studies have assessed CVD and its risk factors in terms of the primary prevention of CVD in the Middle East. Therefore, summarizing the information from these studies is essential. AIM We conducted a systematic review to assess the prevalence of CVD and its major risk factors among Middle Eastern adults based on the literature published between January 1, 2012 and ...

BACKGROUND Sex hormones influence lipoprotein metabolism; whether the hormonal fluctuation during normal menstrual cycle has impact on non-fasting lipids remains unclear. OBJECTIVE To examine for differences in postprandial triglyceride, apolipoprotein B (ApoB) and non-high density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) concentrations using a standardized fat tolerance test during the 2 menstrual cycle phases. METHODS We enrolled 25 healthy, menstruating women. Each of them underwent a fat toleranc...

BACKGROUND The association between Paget's disease of bone (PDB) and increased cardiovascular (CV) risk has been suggested, but the literature is conflicting. OBJECTIVE Our study aimed to evaluate two markers of CV risk [common carotid artery intima-media thickness (cIMT) and the aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV)] in patients with PDB. METHODS We enrolled 12 patients with PDB and 58 control subjects, matched for age. Diagnosis of PDB was based on clinical, radiological and biochemical parameters....

BACKGROUND AND AIM The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response and the unfolded protein response (UPR) are essential cellular mechanisms to ensure proper functioning of ER in adverse conditions. However, activation of these pathways has also been associated with insulin resistance and cell death in pathological conditions such as diabetes mellitus. In the present study, we investigated whether stromal cell-derived factor 2 (SDF2)-an ER stress-responsive factor-is related to ER response in pla...

Coronary artery spasm (CAS) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of ischemic heart disease. The clinical manifestations of CAS include variant angina, myocardial infarction and sudden death. Although endothelial dysfunction and hyperreactivity of vascular smooth muscle cells have been associated with CAS, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Thus, there is a long way to go to truly understand the pathogenesis of CAS in order to formulate effective treatments. This article discusses t...

Over the past 20 years, the prevalence of obesity has risen dramatically worldwide, with an increase in occurrence among women in their reproductive age. Obesity during pregnancy is associated with significantly increased maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. In addition to the short-term adverse health outcomes, both mother and the child are prone to develop cardiovascular, metabolic and neurological disorders. Although associations between obesity during pregnancy and adverse maternal-fe...

BACKGROUND Gentiana lutea (GL), commonly known as yellow gentian, bitter root, and bitterwort, belongs to family Gentianaceae. GL belongs to genus Gentiana, which is a rich natural source of iridoids, secoiridoids, xantones, flavonoids, triterpenoids, and carbohydrates. Medicinal plants from Gentiana species have anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mitogenic, anti-proliferative, and lipid-lowering effects, as well as a cardioprotective, hypotensive, vasodilator and anti-platelet activities. OB...
