Background and aims Increased ferritin and body iron stores are frequently observed in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), associated with heightened susceptibility to vascular damage. Conflicting data have been reported on the role of iron in atherosclerosis, with recent data suggesting...
Background and Aims Inflammation is regarded as a risk predictor for metabolic syndrome and atherogenesis. The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review and a meta-analysis to confirm the effect of vitamin–mineral supplementation on cytokine levels.
Background and aims Elevated dietary antioxidant activity has been regarded as providing potential benefits to health. The present work aimed at evaluating the association of glycemic indices with total dietary antioxidant capacity in healthy adults.
Background and aims Dyslipidemia is influenced by diet and body habitus. The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy lipoprotein subclass profile (NMR-LSP) is associated with diabetes and its vascular complications; and an NMR-LSP featuring large VLDL particles and small LDL and HDL particles is...
Background The development of sub-clinical organ damage precedes and predicts the occurrence of cardiovascular (CV) events in hypertensive as well as in obese patients.
Background and aims Hypertriglyceridemia is an important independent risk factor for coronary artery diseases and is determined by a wide range of factors, both genetic and exogenous. The A5 apolipoprotein, which is associated with the synthesis and removal of triglycerides (TG), is encoded by...
Background and aims Glycoprotein 6 (GP6) is a platelet-specific collagen receptor implicated in the thrombotic pathway to acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but a possible genetic relationship between GP6 and AMI is poorly understood. We tested for the genetic association between AMI and single...
Background and Aims The prevalence of insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease (CVD) increases with degree of obesity. Whether measurements of generalized and abdominal obesity differ in the ability to predict changes associated with increased CVD risk is widely debated. We compared the...
The evidence of an incomplete inhibition of platelet function by aspirin, despite therapeutic doses of the drug proved to be clinically effective are employed, was first reported in the ‘80s, in the frame of studies devoted to platelet turnover. Because inhibition of platelet aggregation by...
