Background. Reports on the association of prediabetes with all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality are inconsistent. Objective. To evaluate the risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in association with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT).Methods. Prospective cohort studies with data on prediabetes and mortality were included. The relative risks (RRs) of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality were calculated and reported with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs).Results. Twenty-six studies were included. The risks of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality were increased in participants with prediabetes defined as IFG of 110-125 mg/dL (IFG 110) (RR 1.12, 95% CI 1.05-1.20; and RR 1.19, 95% CI 1.05-1.35, respectively), IGT (RR 1.33, 95% CI 1.24-1.42; RR 1.23, 95% CI 1.11-1.36, respectively), or combined IFG 110 and/or IGT (RR 1.21, 95% CI 1.11-1.32; RR 1.21, 95% CI 1.07-1.36, respectively), but not when IFG was defined as 100-125 mg/dL (RR 1.07, 95% CI 0.92-1.26; and RR 1.16, 95% CI 0.94-1.42, respectively).Conclusions. Prediabetes, defined as IFG 110, IGT, or combined IFG 110 and/or IGT, was associated with increased all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. © 2014 Informa UK, Ltd.

Objective: Prospective cohort studies regarding job strain and the risk of stroke are controversial. This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the association between job strain and the risk of stroke. Methods: The PubMed, Embase, and PsycINFO databases were searched for prospective cohort studies with data on job strain and the risk of stroke. Studies were included if they reported adjusted relative risks (RRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) of stroke from job strain. Subgroup analyses were conducted according to sex and stroke type. Results: Six prospective cohort studies comprising 138,782 participants were included. High strain jobs were associated with increased risk of stroke (RR 1.22, 95% CI 1.01-1.47) compared with low strain jobs. The result was more pronounced for ischemic stroke (RR 1.58, 95% CI 1.12-2.23). The risk of stroke was significant in women (RR 1.33, 95% CI 1.04-1.69) and nonsignificant in men (RR 1.26, 95% CI 0.69-2.27), but the difference in RRs in sex subgroups was not significant. Neither active (RR 1.07, 95% CI 0.90-1.28) nor passive (RR 1.01, 95% CI 0.86-1.18) job characteristics were associated with an increased risk of stroke compared with low strain jobs. Conclusions: Exposure to high strain jobs was associated with an increased risk of stroke, especially in women. Further studies are needed to confirm whether interventions to reduce work stress decrease the risk of stroke. © 2015 American Academy of Neurology.

Background/Aim: The abnormal activation of the AKT/GSK3β signal pathway in lymphocytes from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients plays an important role in the pathogenesis of the disease. Recently Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been recognized as a crucial gaseous signaling molecule, involved in regulation of cell proliferation. However, the role of H 2S in regulating the abnormal activation of lymphocytes from SLE patients has not been established. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of H2S on lymphocytes and to explore the mechanisms involved. Methods: The lymphocytes were isolated from SLE patients with or without renal disease and healthy controls. The cells were treated as indicated in each experiment. Cell viability was analyzed by CCK-8. Cell cycle distribution was determined by flow cytometry. Western blot was used to detect the expression of phosphorylated AKT (ser473), GSK3β (ser9) and CDK2, p27Kip1 and p21WAF1/CIP1. Results: Our findings showed that proliferation of lymphocytes was stimulated following treatment with NaHS (a H2S donor) at low NaHS concentrations (<1mM) but inhibited at high NaHS concentrations (>2mM). Similar results were observed using GYY4137, which is a slow-releasing H2S donor. Pretreatment of lymphocytes from SLE patients with NaHS at high concentrations prior to exposure to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) significantly attenuated proliferation, evidenced by decrease in cell viability and S phase distribution of cell cycle. Pretreatment with NaHS decreased PHA-induced expression of CDK2, phosphorylation levels of AKT (ser473) and GSK3β (ser9) and increased the expression of p27 Kip1 and p21WAF1/CIP1. Moreover, pretreatment with NaHS blunted the stimulation of SLE lymphocyte proliferation by GSK3β inhibitor lithium chloride. Conclusion: These results demonstrate that H2S inhibits the abnormal activation of lymphocytes from SLE patients throuqh the AKT/GSK3β signal pathway. Copyright © 2013 S. Karger AG, Basel.

Background Studies of prehypertension and mortality are controversial after adjusting for other cardiovascular risk factors. This meta-analysis sought to evaluate the association of prehypertension with all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Methods The PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library databases, and conference proceedings were searched for studies with data on prehypertension and mortality. The relative risks (RRs) of all-cause, CVD, coronary heart disease (CHD), and stroke mortality were calculated and presented with 95% CIs. Subgroup analyses were conducted according to blood pressure, age, gender, ethnicity, follow-up duration, participant number, and study characteristics. Results Data from 1,129,098 participants were derived from 20 prospective cohort studies. Prehypertension significantly increased the risk of CVD, CHD, and stroke mortality (RR 1.28, 95% CI 1.16-1.40; RR 1.12, 95% CI 1.02-1.23; and RR 1.41, 95% CI 1.28-1.56, respectively), but did not increase the risk of all-cause mortality after multivariate adjustment (RR 1.03, 95% CI 0.97-1.10). The difference between CHD mortality and stroke mortality was significant (P <.001). Subgroup analyses showed that CVD mortality was significantly increased in high-range prehypertension (RR 1.28, 95% CI 1.16-1.41) but not in low-range prehypertension (RR 1.08, 95% CI 0.98-1.18). Conclusion Prehypertension is associated with CVD mortality, especially with stroke mortality, but not with all-cause mortality. The risk for CVD mortality is largely driven by high-range prehypertension. © 2014 Mosby, Inc.

The objective of this study was to observe the expression of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) in animals and in different clinical grades of patient osteoarthritic tissues. Thirty-five rabbits were used in a Colombo model of experimental osteoarthritis (OA). Five rabbits each were sacrificed on postoperative days 3, 7, 14, 28, 42, 56, and 84. Immunohistochemistry analysis for LIF expression and distribution in the cartilage and synovium of animals was performed at these times. Sixty-seven samples of human articular tissue were obtained from patients with different grades of OA according to symptoms and radiographic inspection. The mRNA expression of LIF was determined by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, and LIF protein was determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The results showed a slight expression of LIF in normal cartilage tissue but less in synovium tissue; however, the expression of LIF was marked in synovial lining cells and superficial and middle-layer cartilage in animal OA (P<.05). Leukemia inhibitory factor mRNA was expressed at the highest level in moderate degrading subchondral bone, and LIF was expressed at the highest level in seriously degrading articular cartilage tissue. These results were similar to those found with ELISA. This study suggests that LIF in OA articular tissues varies by clinical symptoms and grade. It plays an important role in the pathogenesis of OA.

We performed a meta-Analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the protective effects of rosuvastatin on contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) in patients undergoing cardiac catherization. PubMed, MEDLINE, Web of Science, EMBASE, ClinicalTrials.- gov, and the Cochrane Central RCTs were searched for RCTs from inception to May 2015, to compare rosuvastatin for preventing CI-AKI with placebo treatment in patients undergoing cardiac catherization. Five RCTs with a total of 4045 patients involving 2020 patients pretreated with rosuvastatin and 2025 control patients were identified and analyzed. Patients treated with rosuvastatin had a 51% lower risk of CI-AKI compared with the control group based on a fixed-effect model (OR=0.49, 95% CI=0.37-0.66, P<0.001), and showed a trend toward a reduced risk of MACEs (OR=0.62, 95% CI=0.36-1.07, P=0.08). A subgroup analysis showed that studies with Jadad score -3 showed a significant reduction of CI-AKI (OR=0.53, 95% CI, 0.38- 0.73, P<0.001). However, the risk of CI-AKI did not significantly differ in the studies with Jadad score <3 (OR=0.54, 95% CI, 0.13- 2.24, P=0.40). In addition, the rosuvastatin treatment showed no effect for preventing CI-AKI in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing elective cardiac catherization (I2=0%, OR=0.81, 95% CI=0.41-1.61, P=0.55). This updated meta-Analysis demonstrated that preprocedural rosuvastatin treatment could significantly reduce the incidence of CI-AKI, with a trend toward a reduced risk of MACEs in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. However, rosuvastatin treatment did not seem to be effective for preventing CI-AKI in CKD patients undergoing elective cardiac catheterization. Copyright © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.

Results: Of the 5362 initially reviewed cases (aged ≥35 years), 651 were excluded because of missing data. The proportions of optimal BP, prehypertension and hypertension were 39.1%, 38.6% and 22.3%, respectively. The average age, proportion of male sex, overweight, impaired fasting glucose (IFG), dyslipidaemia and hyperuricaemia were significantly higher in the prehypertension group than in the optimal BP group (all p <0.05). Compared with low-range prehypertension, the proportions of overweight, dyslipidaemia and IFG were higher in the high-range prehypertension group (all p<0.05). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that overweight (OR=2.84, 95% CI 1.55 to 5.20), male sex (OR=2.19, 95% CI 1.39 to 3.45), age (per 10 years, OR=1.21, 95% CI 1.02 to 1.44, p=0.03) and hyperuricaemia (OR=1.70, 95% CI 1.14 to 2.54) were independent risk factors of prehypertension.Conclusions: Prehypertension is highly prevalent in southern China. Prehypertensive individuals presented with many other cardiovascular risk factors. There was heterogeneity of combined risk factors within the prehypertensive subgroups.Outcome measures: The prevalence of prehypertension and the combined cardiovascular risk factors within the prehypertensive subgroups.Objective: To explore the prevalence and combined cardiovascular risk factors of prehypertension in southern China.Design: A retrospective study; the logistic regression model was used to find the risk factors of prehypertension.Setting: The study was conducted in Shunde District, southern China, using the community-based health check-up information.Participants: Participants aged ≥35 years with complete health check-up information data between January 2011 and December 2013 were enrolled and divided into hypertension, prehypertension and optimal blood pressure (BP) groups. Prehypertension was further divided into low-range (BP 120-129/80-84 mm Hg) and high-range (BP 130-139/85-89 mm Hg) subgroups.

Background: Early detection of renal dysfunction is important in burn patients. This study evaluated whether serum cystatin C (CysC) is a potentially accurate and sensitive marker for identification of reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and the risk factors of impaired renal function in major burn patients. Methods: A total of 48 adult patients with major burn injury were enrolled. Renal function was assessed using serum creatinine (sCr), 24-h urinary creatinine clearance (24-hCrCl), sCr-based formulae and CysC-based formulae on the second day and seventh day post-burn. Results: There was a high prevalence (27.1) of acute impaired renal function in major burn patients in the first week post-burn. CysC-based formulae for estimated GFR (eGFR) are more accurate and sensitive for detection of impaired renal function than sCr-based formulae. Multivariate logistic regression analysis demonstrated that age (OR, 2.08; 95 CI 1.264.77) and the percentage of burn area (OR, 3.41; 95 CI 1.646.95) were independent risk factors of impaired renal function. Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that CysC is a more accurate and sensitive marker for identification of acute impaired renal function in major burn patients than sCr. It is important to measure CysC and calculate eGFR to prevent acute renal failure and modify drug doses in burn patients, especially those of older age and with major burn areas. © 2012 by Walter de Gruyter Berlin Boston.

Objective/Hypothesis: To estimate the aerodynamic multiparameters for patients with muscular tension dysphonia (MTD) and evaluate voice aerodynamic analysis for assisting the diagnosis of this disorder. Study Design: A prospective study. Methods: Voice aerodynamic parameters, including subglottal pressure (SGP) level, glottal resistance (GR), mean airflow rate (MFR), and maximum phonation time (MPT), for 26 MTD patients and 27 normal adults were analyzed using receiver operating characteristics (ROC) analysis and multivariate logistic regression. Results: For male samples, MTD patients had higher SGP (P = 0.001), higher GR (P = 0.012), lower MFR (P = 0.042), and shorter MPT (P = 0.027), whereas for female samples, the difference between cases and controls was statistically significant only in SGP (P < 0.001) and MPT (P < 0.001). ROC analysis showed that the threshold of 8.175 cm H 2O for SGP achieved a good classification for MTD, with an adequate sensitivity (76.9%) and the perfect specificity (100%). Finally, multivariate logistic regression established a credible model (with SGP and MPT as the predictors) for classifying MTD, with a 92.5% percentage correct. Conclusions: This analysis indicates that aerodynamics evaluation could help the diagnosis of MTD patients, jointly with medical history scrutiny, physical examination, fibrolaryngoscopy, and/or videoendostroboscopy. © 2012 The Voice Foundation.

Whether perioperative allogenic blood transfusion (ABT) has adverse effect on patients with gastric carcinoma (GC) surgery or not, that is controversial. Our study evaluated the association between ABT and some clinical outcomes of GC surgery patients. Data of relevant studies were based on PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library search. The relative risk (RR) of 5-year survival rates, tumor recurrence, and postoperative complications were performed; subgroup analyses included district, transfusion rates, age, participants, sex, and tumor stage. The study was approved by the ethics committee of the First Peoples Hospital of Shunde. In total, 9189 participants from 16 studies were included in the meta-analysis. The 5-year survival rate was decreased for the GC patients with ABT (RR = 0.74, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.69-0.79), the risk of tumor recurrence was significantly higher for ABT patients (RR = 1.82, 95% CI = 1.32-2.51), and postoperative complications increased in ABT patients (RR = 1.36, 95% CI = 1.02-1.81), respectively; in subgroup analyses, 5-year survival rates were not associated with the transfusion rates (2 = 0.37, P = 0.54). Transfusion for patients undergoing GC surgery, even low transfusion rates, would reduce the 5-year survival rates, and elevated the risk of tumor recurrence and postoperative complication.
