Clinical approach to the inflammatory etiology of cardiovascular diseases.

Pharmacol Res 2020 May 20:104916. Epub 2020 May 20.

Dipartimento di Scienze Farmacologiche e Biomolecolari, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy.

Inflammation is an obligatory marker of arterial disease, both stemming from the inflammatory activity of cholesterol itself and from well-established molecular mechanisms. Raised progenitor cell recruitment after major events and clonal hematopoiesis related mechanisms have provided an improved understanding of factors regulating inflammatory phenomena. Trials with inflammation antagonists have led to an extensive evaluation of biomarkers such as the high sensitivity C reactive protein (hsCRP), not exerting a causative role, but frequently indicative of the individual cardiovascular (CV) risk.

Structure of the Hydrophobic Core Determines the 3D Protein Structure-Verification by Single Mutation Proteins.

Biomolecules 2020 May 14;10(5). Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Bioinformatics and Telemedicine, Medical College, Jagiellonian University, Lazarza 16, 31-533 Krakow, Poland.

Four de novo proteins differing in single mutation positions, with a chain length of 56 amino acids, represent diverse 3D structures: monomeric 3α and 4β + α folds. The reason for this diversity is seen in the different structure of the hydrophobic core as a result of synergy leading to the generation of a system in which the polypeptide chain as a whole participates. On the basis of the fuzzy oil drop model, where the structure of the hydrophobic core is expressed by means of the hydrophobic distribution function in the form of a 3D Gaussian distribution, it has been shown that the composition of the hydrophobic core in these two structural forms is different.

Genes involved in glucocorticoid receptor signalling affect susceptibility to mood disorders.

World J Biol Psychiatry 2020 May 26:1-12. Epub 2020 May 26.

Molecular and Cell Biology Unit, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poland.

In mood disorders chronic stress contributes to decreased glucocorticoid receptor signalling in the brain and resistance in the periphery. We hypothesised that aberrant glucocorticoid receptor function may result from genetic predisposition and that decreased GR signalling in the brain correlates with the expression of genes regulating GR complex formation. We performed the association analysis of 698 patients: 490 patients with bipolar disorder and 208 patients with major depressive disorder and 564 control subjects. Read More

Policy Iteration Q-Learning for Data-Based Two-Player Zero-Sum Game of Linear Discrete-Time Systems.

IEEE Trans Cybern 2020 Feb 20. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

In this article, the data-based two-player zero-sum game problem is considered for linear discrete-time systems. This problem theoretically depends on solving the discrete-time game algebraic Riccati equation (DTGARE), while it requires complete system dynamics. To avoid solving the DTGARE, the Q-function is introduced and a data-based policy iteration Q-learning (PIQL) algorithm is developed to learn the optimal Q-function by using data collected from the real system.

Statin therapy in athletes and patients performing regular intense exercise - Position paper from the International Lipid Expert Panel (ILEP).

Pharmacol Res 2020 May 19;155:104719. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Department of Hypertension, Chair of Nephrology and Hypertension, Medical University of Lodz, Lodz, Poland; Polish Mother's Memorial Hospital Research Institute (PMMHRI), Lodz, Poland; Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Zielona Gora, Zielona Gora, Poland. Electronic address:

Acute and chronic physical exercises may enhance the development of statin-related myopathy. In this context, the recent (2019) guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) for the management of dyslipidemias recommend that, although individuals with dyslipidemia should be advised to engage in regular moderate physical exercise (for at least 30 min daily), physicians should be alerted with regard to myopathy and creatine kinase (CK) elevation in statin-treated sport athletes. However it is worth emphasizing that abovementioned guidelines, previous and recent ESC/EAS consensus papers on adverse effects of statin therapy as well as other previous attempts on this issue, including the ones from the International Lipid Expert Panel (ILEP), give only general recommendations on how to manage patients requiring statin therapy on regular exercises.
