Serum Pentosidine Levels Measured in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is the most common type of lupus. SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. More...

Gestational Lipid Profiles Associated with Adverse Cardiovascular Risk

Pregnancy has been proposed as a natural ‘stress test’ to predict the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) later in life. The long-term effect of high blood pressure during pregnancy has been well established. Women who develop a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy such as gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia have a 2–8 times higher risk of developing chronic hypertension and other diseases. More...

Preliminary Predictive Criteria Identified for COVID-19 Cytokine Storm

While most of cases of COVID-19 are mild, a sizeable number of patients develop a severe acute hyperimmune response characterized by a cytokine storm (CS). Two forms of CS, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and macrophage activation syndrome (MAS), rely on well-established criteria to identify their occurrence. More...

Novel Biomarkers Predict the Development of Incident Heart Failure

 Heart failure (HF), caused by abnormal cardiac structure and function, represents the end stage of several cardiac diseases, and significantly worsens both quality of life and life expectancy with a five year survival rate of approximately 50%. Lifetime risk of the development of HF is 20% and overall prevalence 2%. More...
