Statins are among the most commonly prescribed drugs used to manage dyslipidemia. Hepatocellular carcinoma is the third leading cause of cancer mortality and its rates have recently been increasing in central and northern Europe and USA. To quantify the association between statin use and risk for HCC, we performed a meta-analysis of published studies. We(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is known to promote mild hyperthyrotropinaemia by unknown metabolic mechanisms. This investigation aimed to explore the association between thyroid function and metabolic phenotype in euthyroid obese individuals. Retrospective, cross-sectional study. Tertiary care center. METHODS 952 euthyroid obese individuals referred to our(More)
OBJECTIVE Oral antidiabetic drugs (including metformin and sulfonylurea) may play a role in the relationship between type 2 diabetes and cancer. To quantify the association between metformin and sulfonylurea and the risk of cancer, we performed a meta-analysis of available studies on the issue. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a MEDLINE search for(More)

BACKGROUND Although omega-3 fatty acids have well documented properties which would reduce the cardiovascular (CV) disease risk, the evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) remains inconclusive. We performed a meta-analysis of the available RCTs for investigating the CV preventive effect of administrating at least 1 gram/day, and for at least 1(More)
OBJECTIVE Blood pressure (BP) measuring devices may become inaccurate at high altitude due to low barometric pressure. Aim of this study was to assess the changes in the accuracy of different types of BP measuring devices between sea level and high altitude, taking auscultatory measurements with mercury sphygmomanometer as reference. DESIGN AND METHOD In(More)
BACKGROUND Although generic and earlier brand-name counterparts are bioequivalent, their equivalence in preventing relevant clinical outcomes is of concern. OBJECTIVE To compare effectiveness of generic and brand-name antihypertensive drugs for preventing the onset of cardiovascular (CV) outcomes. DESIGN AND SUBJECTS A population-based, nested(More)
OBJECTIVE Office and 24-h ambulatory (A) blood pressure (BP) measurement are the main techniques to quantify the BP effects of treatment in clinical trials and practice. Several clinical trials have made it clear that the BP reduction as evaluated by the two techniques differs. We performed a meta-analysis to quantify the magnitude of this difference in(More)
