Diabetes Amarenco P, Kim JS et. al.

May 13th, 2021 - After an ischemic stroke with evidence of atherosclerosis, lipid lowering treatment with a target LDL cholesterol of less than 70 mg/dL compared to 100±10 mg/dL, reduced the risk of subsequent cardiovascular events. In this analysis, we explored t...

Autoantibodies Against Methylglyoxal-Modified Apolipoprotein B100 and ApoB100 Peptide A...
https://doi.org/10.2337/dc20-2089
Diabetes Care; Sveen KA, Bech Holte K et. al.

Apr 16th, 2021 - Methylglyoxal (MGO), a reactive aldehyde forming advanced glycation end products (AGEs), is increased in diabetes and recognized by the immune system, resulting in anti-AGE-specific autoantibodies. The association of these immune responses with ma...

PloS One; Gruzdeva OV, Belik EV et. al.

Mar 18th, 2021 - In coronary artery disease (CAD) the adipocytokine content in the heart fat depot is altered, but it has not been established whether these changes are associated with the degree of atherosclerotic damage to the coronary artery (CA). Were examined...

Coronary Artery Disease; Koitsopoulos PG, Rabkin SW

Mar 4th, 2021 - There is a need to identify genetic factors that may produce coronary artery atherosclerotic disease (CAD) that are not involved in the usual risk factors leading to CAD. Previous studies have often equated coronary artery calcification (CAC) with...

Endothelial Cell Receptors in Tissue Lipid Uptake and Metabolism.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7959116
Circulation Research; Abumrad NA, Cabodevilla AG et. al.

Feb 4th, 2021 - Lipid uptake and metabolism are central to the function of organs such as heart, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue. Although most heart energy derives from fatty acids (FAs), excess lipid accumulation can cause cardiomyopathy. Similarly, high de...
