Prospective observation on the association of snoring with subclinical changes in carotid atherosclerosis over four years.

Although there is a growing interest in the independent effect of snoring on carotid atherosclerosis, few studies have observed the relationship betwe...

Association of fat density with subclinical atherosclerosis.
Ectopic fat density is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors above and beyond fat volume. Volumetric measures of ectopic fat have been associated with CVD risk factors and subclinical atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to

Changes over the last decade in carotid atherosclerosis in patients with end-stage kidney disease.
Therapies for chronic kidney disease have changed greatly over the last decade. The aim of this study was to examine the changes in the clinical characteristics and carotid atherosclerosis of patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) over the las

The Extent of Subclinical Atherosclerosis Is Partially Predicted by the Inflammatory Load: A Prospective Study over 5 Years in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Matched Controls.
This prospective followup study investigated subclinical atherosclerosis in relation to traditional cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) recruited at diagnosis compared with controls.

Subclinical carotid atherosclerosis and neurocognitive function in an urban population.
Examine age, sex, race, and socioeconomic status as modifiers of the association between carotid intimal medial thickness (IMT) and neurocognitive performance in a socioeconomically diverse, biracial, urban, adult population.

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction and risk of carotid atherosclerosis.
The effect of subclinical thyroid dysfunction on vascular atherosclerosis remains uncertain. The objective of this study was to elucidate the association between sustained subclinical thyroid dysfunction and carotid plaques, which are an early surrog

Plasma IL-5 concentration and subclinical carotid atherosclerosis.
Genetic variants robustly associated with coronary artery disease were reported in the vicinity of the interleukin (IL)-5 locus, and animal studies suggested a protective role for IL-5 in atherosclerosis. Therefore, we set this work to explore IL-5 a

Association of SERPINA9 gene variants with carotid artery atherosclerosis: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Carotid MRI Study.
The SNP rs11628722 in the SERPINA9 gene was previously associated with incident ischemic stroke in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. Centerin, the protein encoded by SERPINA9, is involved in maturation and maintenance of naïve B c
