CONTEXT Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality. It is a pro-inflammatory state as evidenced by increased circulating biomarkers and monocyte activity. The toll-like receptors (TLRs) are pattern recognition receptors, expressed abundantly on monocytes. TLR2 and TLR4 are important in atherosclerosis. However, there is a(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine differences in insertional articular trauma in infrapatellar tibial portal and suprapatellar portal intramedullary tibial nail insertion techniques. A cadaveric study was performed on 10 matched pairs of fresh-frozen adult cadaver lower extremities with intact extensor mechanisms. Two study groups with 10 limbs(More)
Introduced in the early 1970s, total ankle arthroplasty offered patients with debilitating ankle arthritis reduction in pain and almost normal mobility at the ankle joint. The idea of replacing an arthritic ankle joint with a mobile ankle prosthesis was originally welcomed to replace ankle arthrodesis. Unfortunately, high failure rates of first-generation(More)
BACKGROUND The Metabolic Syndrome (MS) confers an increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. We previously showed that simvastatin has concomitant benefits in reducing low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol and inflammation in MS subjects. The levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor 1(PAI-1), soluble P-selectin (sP-selectin), and soluble(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Inflammation is pivotal in all phases of atherosclerosis. Dietary options which lower inflammatory biomarkers would be an attractive strategy to reduce risk from cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Indeed, fruit and vegetable intake or fruit juice consumption is associated with health and wellness. However, there is a paucity of data(More)
Several factors limit the absorption and bioavailability of vitamins. Vitamin C, a commonly used water-soluble supplement reduces the risk of disease. Vitamin B(12) is necessary for the development of RBC, growth, and nervous system. Vitamin B(12) deficiency is common among elderly. Thus, agents that improve bioavailability of vitamin C and B(12),(More)
