Efficacy and safety of cholesterol-lowering treatment: prospective meta-analysis of data from 90 056 participants in 14 randomised trials of statins
Risk of ischemic heart disease in women after radiotherapy for breast cancer.
Exposure of the heart to ionizing radiation during radiotherapy for breast cancer increases the subsequent rate of ischemic heart disease, and the increase is proportional to the mean dose to the heart, begins within a few years after exposure, and continues for at least 20 years.
Effects of radiotherapy and of differences in the extent of surgery for early breast cancer on local recurrence and 15-year survival: an overview of the randomised trials
The causes of cancer: quantitative estimates of avoidable risks of cancer in the United States today.
Evidence that the various common types of cancer are largely avoidable diseases is reviewed, and it is suggested that, apart from cancer of the respiratory tract, the types of cancers that are currently common are not peculiarly modern diseases and are likely to depend chiefly on some long-established factor.
The natural history of chronic airflow obstruction.
Severe or fatal obstructive lung disease could be prevented by screening smokers' lung function in early middle age if those with reduced function could be induced to stop smoking.
Association of fibrinogen, C-reactive protein, albumin, or leukocyte count with coronary heart disease: meta-analyses of prospective studies.
The published results from these prospective studies are remarkably consistent for each factor, indicating moderate but highly statistically significant associations with CHD, even though mechanisms that might account for these associations are not clear.
Efficacy and safety of more intensive lowering of LDL cholesterol: a meta-analysis of data from 170,000 participants in 26 randomised trials.
Repurposed Antiviral Drugs for Covid-19 — Interim WHO Solidarity Trial Results
These Remdesivir, Hydroxychloroquine, Lopinavir and Interferon regimens appeared to have little or no effect on hospitalized COVID-19, as indicated by overall mortality, initiation of ventilation and duration of hospital stay.
Mortality in relation to smoking: 50 years' observations on male British doctors
A substantial progressive decrease in the mortality rates among non-smokers over the past half century has been wholly outweighed, among cigarette smokers, by a progressive increase in the smoker νNon-smoker death rate ratio due to earlier and more intensive use of cigarettes.
