Association of depressive disorders, depression characteristics and antidepressant medication with inflammation
Elevated inflammation was confirmed in depressed men, especially those with a late-onset depression, and specific antidepressants may differ in their effects on inflammation.
Plasminogen activator inhibitors.
This data indicates that the plasminogen activator inhibitor acts as a “spatially aggregating force” to knock down the number of protease-nexin-likeaques in the blood stream.

The findings suggest that certain polymorphisms of the factor VII gene may influence the risk of myocardial infarction and it is possible that this effect may be mediated by alterations in factor VII levels.
Effect of moderate alcohol consumption on adiponectin, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and insulin sensitivity.
Moderate alcohol consumption improved insulin sensitivity in relatively insulin-resistant middle-aged men, an effect that may be mediated through alcohol-induced increases in adiponectin.

Tea drinking had no effect on the levels of the inflammation, haemostasis and endothelial cardiovascular risk factors measured and a relationship between the antioxidant variables α-tocopherol and β-carotene and inflammation markers in this group of healthy smoking subjects was observed.
The Adult Netherlands Twin Register: Twenty-Five Years of Survey and Biological Data Collection
Record linkage to national registers will allow the study of morbidity and mortality, thus providing insight into the development of health, lifestyle, and behavior across the lifespan.
CD4 T lymphocytes from patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have decreased interferon-gamma production and increased sensitivity to dexamethasone.

Pro purified CD4 T cells from CFS patients were studied to determine whether they have an altered sensitivity to dexamethasone (DEX), and surprisingly, interferon-gamma production in patients and controls was equally sensitive to DEX.
Major circadian fluctuations in fibrinolytic factors and possible relevance to time of onset of myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death and stroke.
Short-term oestrogen replacement therapy improves insulin resistance, lipids and fibrinolysis in postmenopausal women with NIDDM
Oestrogen replacement therapy improves insulin sensitivity in liver, glycaemic control, lipoprotein profile and fibrinolysis in postmenopausal women with NIDDM, and long term studies including the effect of progestogens are necessary.
Genome-wide association of major depression: description of samples for the GAIN Major Depressive Disorder Study: NTR and NESDA biobank projects
The large-scale nationwide biological sample collection in Dutch twin families from the Netherlands Twin Register (NTR) and in participants in the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA) is described.
