The N-Terminal Propeptide of Type III Procollagen in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Link between Left Ventricular End-Diastolic Pressure and Cardiovascular Events

Background Despite the usefulness of N-terminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) in detecting enhanced collagen turnover in patients with congestive heart failure, the value added by PIIINP to the use of clinical variables and echocardiography in relation to directly measured left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure (EDP) and the outcome of acute coronary syndrome...

Decrease in Irisin in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Patients with chronic kidney disease have abnormal energy expenditure and metabolism. The mechanisms underlying altered energy expenditure in uremia are unknown and remain to be elucidated. Irisin is a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1-α–dependent myokine, and it increases energy expenditure in the absence of changes in food intake or activity. We...

Cardiovascular Outcomes of Sitagliptin in Type 2 Diabetic Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction, a Population-Based Cohort Study in Taiwan

Background The cardiovascular safety and efficacy of sitagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitor, in type 2 diabetic patients after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has so far remained uncertain. Methods We analyzed data from the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD), a government-operated, population-based database, from March 1st, 2009 to December...
