OBJECTIVE To analyse the association between serum C-peptide and coronary artery disease in the general population. METHODS Follow-up study of 6630 adults from the general population. They were stratified into group 1 (no insulin resistance: C-peptide < third tercile and glycaemia < 100 mg/dL), group 2 (initial insulin resistance: C-peptide ⩾ third(More)
AIMS The serum resistin level is associated with the incidence of ischemic heart disease in the general population. We analyzed the associations between serum resistin and fat intake, serum lipid concentrations and adiposity in the general population. METHODS A cross-sectional study of 6,637 randomly recruited adults was conducted. The resistin levels(More)
Several methods have been used to measure anti-double-stranded DNA auto-antibody (anti-dsDNA). Our aim was to determine the most efficient strategy to test anti-dsDNA in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In this study, anti-dsDNA and anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) tests were requested for 644 patients. Anti-dsDNA was tested by RIA, ELISA and CLIA in all(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain a scale of tobacco exposure to address smoking cessation. DESIGN Follow-up of a cohort. Scale validation. SETTING Primary Care Research Unit. Tenerife. PARTICIPANTS A total of 6729 participants from the "CDC de Canarias" cohort. METHODS A scale was constructed under the assumption that the time of exposure to tobacco is the key(More)
BACKGROUND There is an increasing prevalence of obesity and metabolic syndrome (MS) in developing countries. It has been shown the relationship between social class and MS in developed countries. The objective of our study was to compare the association of social class with the prevalence of MS in a developing country (Tunisia, region of Cap-Bon) and a(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the risk of cardiovascular mortality associated with cardiorenal syndrome subtype 1 (CRS1) in patients who were hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) was greater than the expected risk based on the sum of its components, to estimate the predictive value of CRS1, and to determine whether the severity of CRS1 worsens(More)
AIMS To explore the association between resistin expression and the incidence of ischemic heart disease in the general population. METHODS A follow-up study of 6636 adults recruited randomly from the general population. RESULTS The serum resistin concentration was higher in women (6.1 ng/mL; CI95%=6.0-6.2) than in men (5.6 ng/mL; CI95%=5.5-5.7).(More)
