Dynamic risk stratification using serial measurements of plasma concentrations of natriuretic peptides in patients with heart failure (2018)
Journal Article
Zhang, J., Pellicori, P., Pan, D., Dierckx, R., Clark, A. L., & Cleland, J. (2018). Dynamic risk stratification using serial measurements of plasma concentrations of natriuretic peptides in patients with heart failure. International journal of cardiology, 269, 196-200. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2018.06.070

Background Prognostic models for patients with chronic heart failure are generally based on a single assessment but treatment is often given with the intention of changing risk; re- evaluation of risk is an important aspect of care. The prognostic va... Read More about Dynamic risk stratification using serial measurements of plasma concentrations of natriuretic peptides in patients with heart failure.

Is cardiorespiratory fitness related to cardiometabolic health and all-cause mortality risk in patients with coronary heart disease? A CARE CR study (2018)
Journal Article
Nichols, S., Taylor, C., Page, R., Kallvikbacka-Bennett, A., Nation, F., Goodman, T., …Ingle, L. (2018). Is cardiorespiratory fitness related to cardiometabolic health and all-cause mortality risk in patients with coronary heart disease? A CARE CR study. Sports Medicine - Open, 4(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s40798-018-0138-z

© 2018, The Author(s). Background: Higher cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is associated with lower morbidity and mortality in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). The mechanisms for this are not fully understood. A more favourable cardiometabo...

Validation of U.S. mortality prediction models for hospitalized heart failure in the United Kingdom and Japan: Validation of risk models in decompensated heart failure (2018)
Journal Article
Nagai, T., Sundaram, V., Shoaib, A., Shiraishi, Y., Kohsaka, S., Rothnie, K. J., …Cleland, J. G. (2018). Validation of U.S. mortality prediction models for hospitalized heart failure in the United Kingdom and Japan: Validation of risk models in decompensated heart failure. European journal of heart failure, 20(8), 1179-1190. https://doi.org/10.1002/ejhf.1210

Aims: Prognostic models for hospitalised heart failure (HHF) were developed predominantly for patients of European origin in the United States of America; it is unclear whether they perform similarly in other health-care systems or for different ethn...

Platelet biology in regenerative medicine of skeletal muscle (2018)
Journal Article
Scully, D., Naseem, K. M., & Matsakas, A. (2018). Platelet biology in regenerative medicine of skeletal muscle. Acta Physiologica, 223(3), e13071. https://doi.org/10.1111/apha.13071

Platelet‐based applications such as platelet‐rich plasma (PRP) and platelet releasate have gained unprecedented attention in regenerative medicine across a variety of tissues as of late. The rationale behind utilizing PRP originates in the delivery o... Read More about Platelet biology in regenerative medicine of skeletal muscle.

Soy isoflavones improve cardiovascular disease risk markers in women during 1 the early menopause 2 1 (2018)
Journal Article
Sathyapalan, T., Aye, M., Rigby, A. S., Thatcher, N. J., Dargham, S. R., Kilpatrick, E. S., & Atkin, S. L. (2018). Soy isoflavones improve cardiovascular disease risk markers in women during 1 the early menopause 2 1. Nutrition, metabolism, and cardiovascular diseases : NMCD, 28(7), 691-697. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.numecd.2018.03.007

Background Hormone replacement therapy may be beneficial for cardiovascular disease risk (CVR) in post-menopausal women. Soy isoflavones may act as selective estrogen receptor modulators. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether soy isoflavones... Read More about Soy isoflavones improve cardiovascular disease risk markers in women during 1 the early menopause 2 1.

Clinical and prognostic relationships of pulmonary artery to aorta diameter ratio in patients with heart failure: a cardiac magnetic resonance imaging study (2018)
Journal Article
Pellicori, P., Urbinati, A., Zhang, J., Joseph, A. C., Costanzo, P., Lukaschuk, E., …Clark, A. L. (2018). Clinical and prognostic relationships of pulmonary artery to aorta diameter ratio in patients with heart failure: a cardiac magnetic resonance imaging study. Clinical cardiology, 41(1), 20-27. https://doi.org/10.1002/clc.22840

Background The pulmonary artery (PA) distends as pressure increases. Hypothesis The ratio of PA to aortic (Ao) diameter may be an indicator of pulmonary hypertension and consequently carry prognostic information in patients with chronic heart failur...
