Multimorbidity and mortality in an older, rural black South African population cohort with high prevalence of HIV findings from the HAALSI Study.

BMJ Open 2021 Sep 15;11(9):e047777. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

MRC/Wits Rural Public Health and Health Transitions Research Unit, School of Public Health, University of the Witwatersrand Faculty of Health Sciences, Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

Objectives: Multimorbidity is associated with mortality in high-income countries. Our objective was to investigate the relationship between multimorbidity (≥2 of the following chronic medical conditions: hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, anaemia, HIV, angina, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol dependence) and all-cause mortality in an older, rural black South African population. We further investigated the relationship between HIV multimorbidity (HIV as part of the multimorbidity cluster) and mortality, while testing for the effect of frailty in all models. Read More

An observational and Mendelian randomisation study on vitamin D and COVID-19 risk in UK Biobank.

Sci Rep 2021 09 14;11(1):18262. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Centre for Global Health, Usher Institute, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.

A growing body of evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency has been associated with an increased susceptibility to viral and bacterial respiratory infections. In this study, we aimed to examine the association between vitamin D and COVID-19 risk and outcomes. We used logistic regression to identify associations between vitamin D variables and COVID-19 (risk of infection, hospitalisation and death) in 417,342 participants from UK Biobank. Read More

The Porto European Cancer Research Summit 2021.

Mol Oncol 2021 Sep 13. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Fédération of European Academies of Medicine, Brussels, Belgium.

Key stakeholders from the cancer research continuum met in May 2021 at the European Cancer Research Summit in Porto to discuss priorities and specific action points required for the successful implementation of the European Cancer Mission and Europe's Beating Cancer Plan (EBCP). Speakers presented a unified view about the need to establish high-quality, networked infrastructures to decrease cancer incidence, increase the cure rate, improve patient's survival and quality of life, and deal with research and care inequalities across the European Union (EU). These infrastructures, featuring Comprehensive Cancer Centres (CCCs) as key components, will integrate care, prevention and research across the entire cancer continuum to support the development of personalized/precision cancer medicine in Europe.

Long-term exposure to low-level ambient air pollution and incidence of stroke and coronary heart disease: a pooled analysis of six European cohorts within the ELAPSE project.

Lancet Planet Health 2021 Sep;5(9):e620-e632

Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Long-term exposure to outdoor air pollution increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, but evidence is unclear on the health effects of exposure to pollutant concentrations lower than current EU and US standards and WHO guideline limits. Within the multicentre study Effects of Low-Level Air Pollution: A Study in Europe (ELAPSE), we investigated the associations of long-term exposures to fine particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide (NO), black carbon, and warm-season ozone (O) with the incidence of stroke and acute coronary heart disease.

Methods: We did a pooled analysis of individual data from six population-based cohort studies within ELAPSE, from Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Germany (recruited 1992-2004), and harmonised individual and area-level variables between cohorts. Read More

From well-known to changed everyday family life in families with childhood cancer: A grounded theory of disrupted family dynamic.

Psychooncology 2021 Sep 9. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Patient Support and Community Activities, Danish Cancer Society Research Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Objective: Families affected by childhood cancer need to adapt either temporarily or permanently. This study identifies variables that influence this adaption in positive or negative ways by presenting a classic grounded theory.

Methods: This inductive, qualitative study included 69 childhood cancer patients, 39 siblings, 42 parents, and 24 childhood cancer survivors from 104 families. Read More

Pleiotropic effects between cardiovascular disease risk factors and measures of cognitive and physical function in long-lived adults.

Sci Rep 2021 Sep 9;11(1):17980. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Department of Epidemiology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Cardiovacular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among older adults and is often accompanied by functional decline. It is unclear what is driving this co-occurrence, but it may be behavioral, environmental and/or genetic. We used a family-based study to estimate the phenotypic and shared genetic correlation between CVD risk factors and physical and cognitive functional measures. Read More

Worldwide differences in primary prevention implantable cardioverter defibrillator utilization and outcomes in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Eur Heart J 2021 Sep 7. Epub 2021 Sep 7.

Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Cardiovascular Medicine Division, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

They Might Cut It-Lysosomes and Autophagy in Mitotic Progression.

Front Cell Dev Biol 2021 13;9:727538. Epub 2021 Aug 13.

Cell Death and Metabolism, Center for Autophagy, Recycling and Disease, Danish Cancer Society Research Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

The division of one cell into two looks so easy, as if it happens without any control at all. Mitosis, the hallmark of mammalian life is, however, tightly regulated from the early onset to the very last phase. Despite the tight control, errors in mitotic division occur frequently and they may result in various chromosomal instabilities and malignancies. Read More
