We reviewed measures used to estimate adherence and persistence to multiple cardiometabolic medications from prescription data, particularly for blood pressure-lowering, lipid-lowering, and/or glucose...
Statins are commonly prescribed drugs that have been inconsistently associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) risk. We examined associations between ALS risk and overall statin use, statin c...
The association of lipid lowering therapy and intracerebral hemorrhage risk is controversial.
Angola is a sub-Saharan African country where the population has scarce access to lipidlowering medication. We sought to determine the frequency of lipid disorders among Angolan nonusers of lipid-lowe...
Solid organ transplantation (SOT) has revolutionized treatment of end-stage disease. Improvements in the SOT continuum of care have unmasked a significant burden of cardiovascular disease, manifesting...
The use of lipid lowering agents in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies is controversial. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to assess clinically and laboratory the im...
This research is being done to investigate the ability of an experimental imaging method - transesophageal magnetic resonance imaging (TEMRI), to detect the change in aortic atheroscleroti...
The most important drugs for evidence based lipid lowering treatment (LLT) in CHD are statins. All patients with established CHD should be treated with statins irrespective of low density ...
The purpose of this study is to find out whether taking protease inhibitors (anti-HIV drugs) together with lipid-lowering drugs (drugs which lower the amount of fat in the blood) has an ef...
Heart disease and stroke are major causes of death and disability worldwide and are largely preventable. Cholesterol and blood pressure are major cardiovascular risk factors. Previous stud...
The practice of prescribing medications in a manner that poses more risk than benefit, particularly where safer alternatives exist.
Conditions characterized by abnormal lipid deposition due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases involving lysosomal enzymes required for lipid breakdown. They are classified either by the enzyme defect or by the type of lipid involved.
A bilateral retinopathy occurring in premature infants treated with excessively high concentrations of oxygen, characterized by vascular dilatation, proliferation, and tortuosity, edema, and retinal detachment, with ultimate conversion of the retina into a fibrous mass that can be seen as a dense retrolental membrane. Usually growth of the eye is arrested and may result in microophthalmia, and blindness may occur. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
Protein components on the surface of LIPOPROTEINS. They form a layer surrounding the hydrophobic lipid core. There are several classes of apolipoproteins with each playing a different role in lipid transport and LIPID METABOLISM. These proteins are synthesized mainly in the LIVER and the INTESTINES.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
