Two immune responses are important for recovery after a heart attack -; an acute inflammatory response that attracts leukocyte immune cells to remove dead tissue, followed by a resolving response that allows healing.

Researchers use simple blood tests to improve treatment for resistant hypertension in AfricaResearchers use simple blood tests to improve treatment for resistant hypertension in Africa

Using two simple blood tests, Western University researchers were able to drastically improve treatment for resistant hypertension across three sites in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa.

Study finds no link between gluten intake and heart disease risk in people without celiac diseaseStudy finds no link between gluten intake and heart disease risk in people without celiac disease

A study of more than 100,000 men and women revealed that dietary gluten is not associated with heart disease risk in people without celiac disease. The findings also suggest that limiting whole grains as part of a low-gluten diet may increase the risk of heart disease in people who do not have celiac disease.

In preparation for launch in the Swedish and Danish markets, Swedish/Danish Acarix AB’s (publ) (“Acarix”) CADScor®System will be on display at the Swedish Society of Cardiology spring meeting in Malmö, April 26-28.

‘Helistroke service’ gets critical care to stroke victims faster than transporting patient to hospital‘Helistroke service’ gets critical care to stroke victims faster than transporting patient to hospital

Flying a stroke specialist by helicopter to a nearby stroke patient for emergency care is feasible, saves money and, most importantly, gets critical care to patients faster than transporting the patient to a hospital first, according to a single-patient, proof-of-concept study by a Johns Hopkins Medicine research team.

Study reveals gluten diet is not connected with heart disease among non-celiac people

Study reveals gluten diet is not connected with heart disease among non-celiac peopleThe study findings published online in the British Medical Journal today reveal that the intake of a long-term gluten diet is not connected with coronary heart disease among people without celiac disease.

Mexican-American stroke survivors less likely to receive inpatient rehabilitation, study revealsA new pilot study reports that Mexican-American stroke survivors are less likely to receive inpatient rehabilitation than non-Hispanic whites.

Study finds worse survival rates for heart failure despite advances in treatment

Study finds worse survival rates for heart failure despite advances in treatmentA new analysis finds that, despite advances in care, men and women with a diagnosis of heart failure continue to have worse survival rates than patients with certain common cancers.

Heart failure patients have higher risk of death than people with common cancers

Heart failure patients have higher risk of death than people with common cancersA study led by Keele University, in collaboration with the Universities of Aberdeen and Manchester, shows that men and women suffering from heart failure have a higher risk of death than people with most common types of cancer.

MicroRNA-210 stabilizes deposits in carotid artery to prevent stroke risk

MicroRNA-210 stabilizes deposits in carotid artery to prevent stroke riskThe molecule microRNA-210 stabilizes deposits in the carotid artery and can thus prevent them from tearing, and prevent dangerous blood clots from forming.

Researchers uncover new mechanism that explains cause of portal hypertension

Researchers uncover new mechanism that explains cause of portal hypertensionInvestigators at the Medical University of South Carolina have identified a critical regulatory mechanism for the production of nitric oxide. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase is the enzyme responsible for the production of NO and its activity is tightly controlled in liver endothelial cells via a series of complex molecular mechanisms; however, in liver injury, eNOS activity, and subsequently NO production, is dysregulated.

Pediatric cardiology expert advises pregnant women to ask three questions about fetal ultrasounds

Pediatric cardiology expert advises pregnant women to ask three questions about fetal ultrasoundsFor pregnant women, it is standard practice to get a general fetal ultrasound between 18 to 22 weeks of pregnancy. Ultrasound scans, which use high-frequency sound waves to show images of the fetus, placenta and amniotic fluid, help the doctor see how the baby is developing and detect possible birth defects.

UAB symposium highlights use of tissue engineering to repair broken heartsThe third annual Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering Symposium met at the University of Alabama at Birmingham last month, a gathering of noted physicians and scientists who share the goal of creating new tissues and new knowledge that can prevent or repair heart disease and heart attacks.

Energy drinks linked to risk of cardiac events in young people with familial long QT syndrome

Energy drinks linked to risk of cardiac events in young people with familial long QT syndromeCaffeinated energy drinks can trigger serious cardiac events including cardiac arrest in individuals not known to have a specific heart disease of genetic origin.

New method helps visualize, measure real-time lipid metabolism in living fish

New method helps visualize, measure real-time lipid metabolism in living fishStudying how our bodies metabolize lipids such as fatty acids, triglycerides, and cholesterol can teach us about cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other health problems, as well as reveal basic cellular functions.

Brisk walk or other physical activity is crucial for better health, shows study

Brisk walk or other physical activity is crucial for better health, shows studyIt is not the amount of time spent sitting still that matters. Instead, it is the extent of physical activity that is essential in reducing the risk of elderly women developing cardiovascular disease, as shown in a new örebro study published in PLOS ONE.

Study finds substantial differences in accuracy of heart rate apps

Study finds substantial differences in accuracy of heart rate appsConsumers are being warned about the accuracy of heart rate apps after a study found huge variability between commercially available apps, even those using the same technology. The research is published today in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

Impaired effects of insulin can increase cancer risk, shows study

Impaired effects of insulin can increase cancer risk, shows studyOver the decades, scientists have repeatedly shown that patients with increased levels of the hormone insulin in their blood can experience increased risks of cancer. Surprisingly, however, Joslin Diabetes Center researchers now have discovered that impaired effects of insulin also can boost these risks.
