In 311 patients (269 men and 42 woman, 20 to 65 years old) without transmural myocardial infarction the results of exercise tests in supine position were compared with the results of coronary angiography. 1. Patients having ischemic ST-segment depression (greater than or equal to 0.1 mV) and angina pectoris during exercise (n = 108) showed a greater than or equal to 50% stenosis of at least one vessel in 86.1%. In men the number of a greater than or equal to 50% stenosis was significantly higher than in women (91.3 vs. 56.2%). In patients without digitalis agreement with coronary angiographic findings is higher than in patients with digitalis (92.7 vs. 79.2%). After excluding women, patients under digitalis and those with an intramural myocardial infarction, agreement was 96.8%. 2. In patients having ischemic ST-segment depression agreement was 30% and in those with angina pectoris 36.8%. 3. In patients having neither ischemic ST-segment depression nor angina pectoris during exercise up to a heart rate of 80% of the age-dependent heart rate limit a coronary angiogram without a greater than or equal to 50% stenosis was found in 87.6%. After excluding patients with an intramural myocardial infarction, women and patients under dig...Continue Reading

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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