Elevated Serum Levels of Lp-PLA2 and IL-18 are Associated with Progression of Diabetic Foot Ulcers.

Clin Lab 2020 Oct;66(10)

Background: Diabetic foot (DF) is a common complication of diabetes with insidious onset, making it difficult for patients to receive timely diagnosis and treatment. This study aimed to evaluate the change in lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) and interleukin-18 (IL-18) in the serum of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) pa-tients with and without DF, thereby assessing the association between progression of DF and levels of Lp-PLA2 together with IL-18.

Methods: In this study, 50 patients with diabetes without foot ulcers (group I, T2DM group), 135 patients with diabetes with foot ulcers (group II, DF group), and 30 matched healthy controls (group III) were enrolled. Read More

Employee Health & Benefits, Sarasota County Government, Sarasota (Dr Lord, Ms Deem, Ms Bray-Richarson); Aetna Inc., Tampa (Ms Pitchford); Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (Mr Drennon), Sarasota, Florida.

Objective: To determine whether a 6-week Positivity Program could impact employee cardiovascular inflammation, blood sugars, cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and/or life satisfaction.

Methods: Pre- and post-study blood draw and life satisfaction questionnaire tracked changes in 10 cardiovascular and inflammatory biomarkers for 63 employees who participated in a 6-week Positivity Program comprised of three interventions: gratitude, HeartMath's Heart Lock-In, and yoga stretches with guided imagery.

Results: Improvements were recorded in life satisfaction as well as in seven of 10 cardiovascular and inflammatory biomarkers, including high sensitivity C-reactive protein (HsCRP) (-27%), hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) (-1%), glucose (-2%), myeloperoxidase (MPO) (-5%), lipoprotein-associated phospholipase-A2 (Lp-PLA2) (-9%), apolipoprotein B (ApoB) (-6%), and DHEA (1%).

Int J Mol Sci 2016 Apr 27;17(5). Epub 2016 Apr 27.

Division of Community and Family Medicine, Jichi Medical University, 3311-1 Yakushiji, Shimotsuke-City, Tochigi 329-0498, Japan.

The circulating levels of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A₂ (Lp-PLA₂) can be a simple, but practical and useful marker of cardiovascular disease (CVD). As limited studies are available in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), further studies are needed to establish the clinical application of Lp-PLA₂ in DM practice. The present study investigated the correlation between Lp-PLA₂ and the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), a recent marker of arterial stiffness, in DM patients according to their diabetes duration.

Background: Active metabolism of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) could suggest their suitability for metabolomics studies. This study examined whether reductions in PBMCs and plasma lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) activities induced by dietary intervention affected the overall metabolic profiles of PBMC and plasma.

Methods: Eighty nonobese subjects aged 40-70 years (18. Read More

Comparison of Serum LP-PLA2 Level and some Nutritional Factors between Well-Controlled and Poorly-Controlled Diabetic Patients.

Acta Med Iran 2015 Nov;53(11):690-6

Department of Cellular and Molecular Nutrition, School of Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) is produced by inflammatory cells, bound to LDL and other lipoproteins, and hydrolyzes oxidized phospholipids in LDL. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes some investigations show the association of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 mass and activity with the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in populations with high prevalences of insulin resistance and diabetes. This study is a cross-sectional descriptive and analytic study on 80 individuals with diabetes referring to the Tehran Diabetes Association. Read More

Biological surrogates for enhancing cardiovascular risk prediction in type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Am J Cardiol 2007 Feb 20;99(4A):80B-88B. Epub 2006 Dec 20.

Section of Atherosclerosis and Vascular Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.

The identification of individuals at increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) events is the critical first step toward reducing CVD morbidity and mortality. Accurate models for cardiac risk stratification benefit high-risk patients, who stand to gain the most from aggressive treatments, including pharmacologic therapies for blood pressure control, lipid lowering, glycemic control, and smoking cessation, as well as lower risk patients, who may avoid the added expense and complications from unnecessary medications and procedures. The further stratification of CVD risk in patients with diabetes mellitus may be important in individualizing therapy and in developing future clinical trials to examine new approaches for CVD event reduction in patients with diabetes.
