BACKGROUND The American Heart Association's 2020 Strategic Goals define a new concept of cardiovascular health. However, the prevalence of ideal cardiovascular health outside of the United States is unclear, and its relationship with psychological status has not been reported. METHOD We included 9962 participants (mean age 47.1 years; 44.2% women) from(More)
BACKGROUND Most biomarkers lack clinical sensitivity and specificity for predicting adverse outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We identified potential predictors through proteomic analysis. METHODS Serum proteomic analysis was performed by surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization protein chip technology in 409 patients with ACS.(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the predictive values of percent body fat (PBF) and body mass index (BMI) for cardiovascular risk factors, especially when PBF and BMI are conflicting. BMI was calculated by the standard formula and PBF was determined by bioelectrical impedance analysis. A total of 3859 ambulatory adult Han Chinese subjects(More)
BACKGROUND Very few studies have evaluated the potential of using B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) as surrogate markers to guide clinical interventional or conservative therapy decisions. AIM : The aim of the current study was to evaluate the potential of using BNP and NT-proBNP as surrogate(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of food-specific IgG antibodies in human serum may be useful for diagnosis of adverse food reactions. However, the clinical utility of testing for such antibodies remains very controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum levels and population distribution of food-specific IgGs and their association with chronic(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate associations of novel cardiovascular markers with obesity in a general population. METHODS A total of 9361 individuals without diabetes or cardiovascular disease were studied between 2009 and 2012 in China. High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT), N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), brachial-ankle pulse(More)
BACKGROUND The EZSCAN test was recently developed to screen for early dysglycemia through an assessment of sudomotor function. Given the associations of dysglycemia and autonomic dysfunction with the development of arterial stiffness, EZSCAN may also detect early arterial stiffness. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of EZSCAN with(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of baseline body mass index (BMI) status and weight change on mortality in older men with impaired glucose regulation (IGR). METHODS Eight hundred eighty-five men with IGR aged 60 to 90 were included. Baseline and endpoint weight were measured. All-cause and cardiovascular mortality were observed during a median follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND Both glycated albumin (GA) and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) reflect the mean glucose levels. This study was conducted to investigate the relationships among GA, HbA1c, and arterial stiffness in the general population. METHODS A total of 11,014 participants were included. Serum GA; HbA1c; and arterial stiffness indices, including brachial-ankle(More)
