We can add one more thing to the list of traits affected by genetics: how our bodies respond to a particular diet. Research in animal models with different genetics shows that one diet really doesn't fit all, and what works for some may not be best for others, according to a new study.

Molecular guardian defends cells, organs against excess cholesterol

Added: 29.01.2018 16:03 | 0 views | 0 comments


Medical researchers have illuminated a critical player in cholesterol metabolism that acts as a molecular guardian in cells to help maintain cholesterol levels within a safe, narrow range. Known as Nrf1, it both senses and responds to excess cholesterol, and could represent a potential new therapeutic target in a multitude of diseases where cholesterol metabolism is disrupted.

#zrodlo

After decades of individual attempts to identify the structure of the main building block of HDL (high-density lipoproteins), the so-called 'good' cholesterol that associates with protection from cardiovascular disease, a research team representing eight academic institutions across the US and Australia has come to agreement on a predictive model.

#zrodlo

LDL-cholesterol-lowering drug evolocumab reduced risk of major cardiovascular events and major adverse limb events among peripheral artery disease sub-population from the FOURIER trial. A new sub-analysis of the FOURIER clinical trial, however, now offers information on the safety and effectiveness of giving the PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab on top of statin therapy to patients with peripheral artery disease.

If you have a heart attack or stroke, it's important to get your 'bad' cholesterol measured by your doctor on a follow up visit. Researchers have found that one step is significantly associated with a reduced risk of suffering another serious cardiovascular episode.

Medications to treat cardiovascular risk factors do not impact erectile function

#zrodlo

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a major public health problem. Men being treated for cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol are at increased risk of developing ED and often consider this condition a side effect of their medications. However, a new study into the effects of cholesterol-lowering statins and blood-pressure lowering candesartan/HCTZ concludes that these medications do not negatively affect erectile function.

Multi-gene test predicts early heart disease risk

#zrodlo

A risk score based on multiple genetic differences, or polygenic test, predicted significantly more cases of early heart disease than standard tests for single genetic defects. The polygenic test predicted a high risk for early-onset heart disease in 1 out of 53 individuals, compared to 1 in 256 for the most frequent single genetic defect.
