A novel risk score algorithm for the risk of diabetes by allocating specific points in a novel way is provided by Schulze et al. Expand
Atrial fibrillation prevalence, incidence and risk of stroke and all-cause death among Chinese.
It is demonstrated that atrial fibrillation is a significant risk factor for stroke and all-cause death for the Chinese. Expand
Adjuvant treatments for resected pancreatic adenocarcinoma: a systematic review and network meta-analysis.
Chemotherapy with fluorouracil or gemcitabine is the optimum adjuvant treatment for pancreatic adenocarcinoma and reduces mortality after surgery by about a third, and chemoradiation plus chemotherapy is less effective in prolonging survival and is more toxic than chemotherapy. Expand
Habitual sleep duration and insomnia and the risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause death: report from a community-based cohort.
Sleep duration and insomnia severity were associated with all-cause death and CVD events among ethnic Chinese in Taiwan and data indicate that an optimal sleep duration (7-8 h) predicted fewer deaths. Expand
A novel genetic variant in the apolipoprotein A5 gene is associated with hypertriglyceridemia.
Findings suggest the possible use of c.553G>T polymorphisms in APOA5 as prognostic indicators for hypertriglyceridemia susceptibility in Chinese. Expand
Plasma uric acid and the risk of type 2 diabetes in a Chinese community.
A modest positive association between plasma uric acid concentration and the incidence of type 2 diabetes in Chinese individuals is suggested, partly mediated through the metabolic syndrome. Expand
Dietary sesame reduces serum cholesterol and enhances antioxidant capacity in hypercholesterolemia
Abstract The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of sesame on lowering serum lipids and enhancing antioxidant capacity in 21 hyperlipidemic patients. Subjects were instructed toExpand
Hyperuricemia as a risk factor on cardiovascular events in Taiwan: The Chin-Shan Community Cardiovascular Cohort Study.
It is concluded that uric acid, in the baseline and time-dependent variables, could predict cardiovascular events in the community of relatively low CHD but high stroke risk in Taiwan. Expand
The associations between serum perfluorinated chemicals and thyroid function in adolescents and young adults.
Serum concentrations of PFNA were associated with serum free T4 levels in adolescents and young adults and mean serum level offree T4 increased significantly across categories (<60th, 60-89 and >90th percentiles) ofPFNA. Expand
Metabolic syndrome among HIV-infected Taiwanese patients in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy: prevalence and associated factors.
Receipt of HAART and prolonged exposure to PI and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor(s) were associated with metabolic syndrome, and approximately one-fourth of HIV-infected Taiwanese patients developed metabolic syndrome in the HAART era. Expand
