Cardiovascular diseases possess a major cause for fatality and disability the world over. Since last several decades, the rates of cardiovascular diseases-related deaths have decreased in a number of high-income countries but increased in low- and middle-income countries with around 80% of the burden. Despite the seriousness of cardiovascular diseases in low- and middle-income countries, minimal attention is given to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases risk factors in South Asia, particularly in Pakis...
Although alexithymia has been suggested to be associated with cardiovascular diseases, studies are scarce and a causal relationship is questionable. This study explored the prospective association between alexithymia and cardiovascular events in middle-aged participants without cardiovascular history at baseline.
To examine the trend of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) risk factors among a Middle Eastern population with prevalent CVD during a median follow up of 12 years.
Cardiovascular disease is a primary cause of mortality worldwide. Therefore, it is of major interest to identify sensitive molecular markers that predict cardiovascular events and point to therapeutic strategies that will increase lifespans. Dysregulated lipid metabolism is recognized as an established risk factor in cardiovascular diseases. However, it is still largely unknown which specific lipid molecular species reflect cardiovascular risk. In addition, understanding the whole lipidome signature in vasc...
Evaluation of the effectiveness of risk management in persons with high cardiovascular risk is an important element in reducing the death rate of the population from cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
The fact that microRNAs play an important role in the development and pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease is beyond doubt. This article provides a brief overview of recent data that relate to microRNA expression in various cardiovascular diseases. Detecting significant changes in the level of expression of these molecules in various diseases means that microRNAs can be considered to be potential biomarkers of human pathologies including heart failure. Studying the relationship between the mechanisms of c...
Epicardial fat (EPI) plays important role in development of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. According to population studies EPI represents independent risk factor of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and also for neoplasms. Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a glycoprotein which have role in regulation of immune and cardiovascular systems. High serum levels of OPG are connected with high cardiovascular risk. The aim of our study was to evaluate possible correlation between EPI and OPG level in asymptomatic relativ...
Cardiovascular diseases are major causes of people death associated with high mortality and disability. Exosomes are nanosized extracellular vesicles containing protein, lipid, transcription factors, mRNAs, non-coding RNA (ncRNA) and nucleic acid contents, which are critical players of intercellular communication via long-range signals or cell-to-cell contact. The emergence of exosomes provides favorable strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Exosomes-based molecular mechanis...
Angiotensin II (Ang II) causes vascular inflammation, leading to vascular endothelial cell dysfunction, and is associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, interventions in inflammation may contribute to the reduction of cardiovascular diseases. Here, we aim to demonstrate that HDAC4, one of class IIa family histone deacetylases (HDACs) members, promotes autophagy-dependent vascular inflammation.
Firefighters are exposed to multiple cardiovascular hazards, but few epidemiological studies have addressed their cardiovascular morbidity. The objective of this study was therefore to examine the incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) in Danish firefighters.
Long-term exposure to acrylamide (AA) from diet sources may induce oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. However, the association between AA exposure and the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remains unclear.
Systemic autoimmune diseases can affect various kinds of organs including the kidney, the skin, soft tissue and the bone. Among others, cardiovascular involvement in rheumatic diseases has been shown to affect myocardium, pericardium, cardiac vessels, conduction system and valves, eventually leading to mortality. In general, underlying chronic inflammation lead to premature atherosclerosis, but also other manifestations such as arrhythmia and heart failure may have a 'silent' progress. Traditional cardiovas...
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of deaths in the world, and many events could be prevented by healthy life habits.
The high amount of saturated fatty acids (SFA) coupled with the rising availability and consumption of palm oil have lead to the assumption that palm oil contributes to the increased prevalence of cardiovascular diseases worldwide. We aimed at systematically synthesising the association of palm oil consumption with cardiovascular disease risk and cardiovascular disease-specific mortality.
NLRP3 inflammasome is a key multiprotein signaling platform that tightly controls inflammatory responses and coordinates antimicrobial host defenses by activating caspase-1 for the subsequent maturation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-1β and IL-18, and induces pyroptosis. The assembly and activation of NLRP3 inflammasome are linked to the pathogenesis of several cardiovascular disease risk factors, such as hypertension and diabetes, and their major consequences-myocardial remodeling. The study of the NLR...
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus is a condition strongly related to the development of type 2 diabetes later in life, although the risk and the onset have not been fully identified yet. Although glucose tolerance returns to normal levels after delivery in the majority of women with GDM, this condition represents an early stage in the natural history of T2DM. In addition, women with previous GDM exhibit an increased cardiovascular risk profile and a raised incidence of cardiovascular diseases. Lifestyle changes...
About 92.1 million Americans suffer from at least one type of cardiovascular disease. Worldwide, cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death (about 31% of all global deaths). Recent technological advancements in cardiac ultrasound imaging are expected to aid in the clinical diagnosis of many cardiovascular diseases. This article provides an overview of such recent technological advancements, specifically focusing on tissue Doppler imaging, strain imaging, contrast echocardiography, 3D echocard...
Comorbidity is a cause of increased mortality, decreased quality of life and increased use of healthcare services. It is important particularly for physicians and other healthcare providers in primary care settings to evaluate these patients properly. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death from non-communicable diseases worldwide and are characterized by a high level of comorbidities.
Accumulating evidence suggests that gut bacteria-derived compounds enter the bloodstream and affect the circulatory system functions. For example, hydrogen sulfide, a product of gut sulfate-reducing bacteria, was found to exert significant hemodynamic effects. Furthermore, trimethylamine N-oxide, a gut bacteria derivative metabolite of L-carnitine and choline, has recently emerged as a new marker of increased cardiovascular risk. To enter the circulation, gut bacteria metabolites need to pass the gut-blood ...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is expected to contribute a large non-communicable disease burden amongst HIV-positive people. We quantify the impact of prevention interventions on annual CVD burden and costs amongst HIV-positive people in The Netherlands.
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are an important family of protective proteins. They are involved actively in an array of cellular processes, including protective effects on the cardiovascular system in response to various stimuli. Increasing evidence shows that pharmacologic interventions that induce expression of HSPs may be a novel approach for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. However, agents that induce expression of HSPs used previously are toxic or have harmful side effects, which limit their clin...
Differences in cardiovascular diseases are evident in men and women throughout life and are mainly attributed to the presence of sex hormones and chromosomes. Epigenetic mechanisms drive the regulation of the biological processes that may lead to CVD and are possibly influenced by sex. In order to gain an overview of the status quo on sex differences in cardiovascular epigenetics, we performed a systematic review.
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the main organelle for the synthesis, folding, and processing of secretory and transmembrane proteins. Pathological stimuli including hypoxia, ischaemia, inflammation and oxidative stress interrupt the homeostatic function of ER, leading to accumulation of unfolded proteins, a condition referred to as ER stress. ER stress triggers a complex signalling network referred as the unfolded protein response (UPR). Extensive studies have demonstrated that ER stress plays an important r...
