Hypoadiponectinemia as an independent predictor for the progression of carotid atherosclerosis: a 5-year prospective study.
Hypoadiponectinemia predicts the development of diabetes and hypertension, both being potent atherosclerotic risk factors. Whether adiponectin predicts the progression of early atherosclerosis remains unclear. In this 5-year prospective study, we exa

Association of parity with carotid diameter and distensibility: multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.
Pregnancy and childbirth are associated with hemodynamic changes and vascular remodeling. It is not known whether parity is associated with later adverse vascular properties such as larger arterial diameter, wall thickness, and lower distensibility.

Effects of blood lipid stability on progression of carotid atherosclerosis.
To evaluate the effects of blood lipid stability on progression of carotid atherosclerosis.

Analysis of risk factors and diseases associated with atherosclerosis in the progression of carotid artery stenosis.
The objective of this study was to analyze the roles of demographic, clinical, and laboratory factors on the progression of atherosclerotic stenosis in carotid bifurcation. It was based on prospective information from records entered on a specific ap

Markers of inflammation associated with plaque progression and instability in patients with carotid atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis is the focal expression of a systemic disease affecting medium- and large-sized arteries, in which traditional cardiovascular risk factor and immune factors play a key role. It is well accepted that circulating biomarkers, including C

Five-year change in systolic blood pressure is independently associated with carotid atherosclerosis progression: a population-based cohort study.
The aim of this study was to investigate whether long-term changes in traditional risk factors affect the progression of carotid atherosclerosis in a Chinese population. This study included 1590 individuals (aged 56.9±8.1 years) with no evidence of c

Association of the ACE rs4646994 and rs4341 polymorphisms with the progression of carotid atherosclerosis in slovenian patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The current study was designed to reveal possible associations between the angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) gene polymorphisms (rs4646994 and rs4341) with markers of carotid atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a 4-y

Machine learning to predict rapid progression of carotid atherosclerosis in patients with impaired glucose tolerance.
Prediabetes is a major epidemic and is associated with adverse cardio-cerebrovascular outcomes. Early identification of patients who will develop rapid progression of atherosclerosis could be beneficial for improved risk stratification. In this paper
