Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and outcomes in persons with acute coronary syndromes: insights from the GRACE-ALT analysis.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, but no data exist about the relation between NAFLD and adverse outcomes in persons with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We evaluated elevated serum

Non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes in octogenarians: applicability of the GRACE and CRUSADE scores.
Assessment of ischemic and bleeding risk is critical for the management of elderly patients with acute coronary syndromes, but it has been little studied.

Smoking relapse-prevention intervention for cancer patients: Study design and baseline data from the surviving SmokeFree randomized controlled trial.
