Abstract

Doppler examination of the neck and limbs of 160 patients with a predisposition to arterial vascular disease in the presence of hypertension, hyperlipoproteinaemia, cigarette smoking and diabetes mellitus, 66% of whom had a combination of two or more of these risk factors, showed in 48 cases single or combined lesions in the arteries of the neck. One patient had unilateral stenosis of the common carotid artery; 20 patients showed unilateral and seven bilateral stenosis of the internal carotid artery; nine patients had unilateral and two patients bilateral stenosis of the external carotid artery; 28 patients showed unilateral flow reduction in the vertebral artery. There was a combined lesion of two or three vessels of the neck in 12 patients. Stenotic peripheral arteries at different levels of the leg with ankle pressure index decrease of up to 22.5% were detected in 54 patients.These peripheral arterial diseases were associated with stenotic carotid arteries in 28%. Peripheral vascular lesions were present in 40% of patients stenotic carotid arteries. Of the 160 patients studied 67 had proven coronary heart disease; 22% of these showed stenotic carotid arteries and 29% showed stenotic peripheral arteries. Combined lesions of t...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Laryngeal Neoplasms

Laryngeal Neoplasms occur in the Larynx and are typically associated with smoking and alcohol consumption. Discover the latest research on Laryngeal Neoplasms here.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
