Imam Khomeini Hospital, Lorestan University of Medical Sciences, Khorramabad, Iran.

Cardiovascular events are the leading cause of mortality and are highly associated with lifestyle. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and its major risk factors in the western Iranian city of Borujerd. This cross-sectional study was conducted on 801 subjects older than 35 years of age, recruited via cluster sampling in Borujerd. The diagnosis of CAD was based on the positive results of Rose Angina Questionnaire, Minnesota coding, or prior history of CAD. Then, the risk factors were measured by biochemistry and relevant laboratory examinations, or data extraction from the subjects' history. The study sample consisted of 412 men and 389 women at a mean age of 54.82±12.11 years. The prevalence of risk factors including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, smoking, and obesity was 38.2%, 17.4%, 64%, 23.2%, and 22.8%, respectively. Based on the criteria, 19.1% and 31.7% of the CAD cases were definite and probable, respectively. Furthermore, 12.5% had definite signs and symptoms of CAD, and 5.4% had positive Rose Angina Questionnaire outcomes. The current study demonstrated the distribution of CAD in the Iranian city of Borujerd and it was demonstrated that obesity and smoking are the most common risk factors, respectively.

Pregnancy outcome after first trimester exposure to domperidone-An observational cohort study.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2021 Feb 25. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Pharmacy, Toranomon Hospital, Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Aim: To assess the teratogenic risk of domperidone by comparing the incidence of major malformation with domperidone to a control.

Methods: Pregnancy outcome data were obtained for women at two Japanese facilities that provide counseling on drug use during pregnancy between April 1988 and December 2017. The incidence of major malformation was calculated among infants born to women taking domperidone (n = 519), nonteratogenic drugs (control, n = 1673), or metoclopramide (reference, n = 241) during the first trimester of pregnancy.

A Cumulative Risk Index for use in the Medical Home.

Child Care Health Dev 2021 Feb 25. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

University of Colorado at Denver - Anschutz Medical Campus, Pediatrics, Aurora, CO, USA.

Background And Objective: Previous studies have described the effect of sociodemographic factors on early development. We describe development of a simple cumulative risk index (CRI) based on four sociodemographic factors and explore the concurrent and predictive relationship of this index to a measure of the cognitive home environment in early childhood and to later school functioning.

Methods: Secondary analysis of data on children participating in an anticipatory guidance program at an urban ambulatory pediatrics clinic. Read More

Objective: The aim of the study was to elucidate the risk factors underlying abnormal cytology-based cervical cancer screening (Pap testing) in justice-involved women (JIW) compared with non-JIW in an urban safety net hospital.

Methods: Retrospective chart review of women with a history of correctional involvement who received care at Grady Health System between 2010 and 2018 and had a Pap test was performed (n = 191). An age-matched cohort of women with no correctional involvement and had a Pap test at Grady served as the control (n = 394). Read More

New York Academy of Medicine, New York, New York, USA.

Background: Heart failure (HF) is highly prevalent among older adults and is associated with high costs. Although serum total nonesterified fatty acids (NEFAs) have been positively associated with HF risk, the contribution of each individual NEFA to HF risk has not been examined.

Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the association of individual fasting NEFAs with HF risk in older adults. Read More
