Serum total and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and the risk prediction of cardiovascular events - the JALS-ECC -.
The risk of AMI can be more reliably predicted by serum non-HDL cholesterol than serum total cholesterol, and the scoring systems are useful tools to predict risk ofAMI. Expand
Relationship between serum albumin level and aging in community-dwelling self-supported elderly population.
A fall in serum albumin concentration in community-dwelling, self-supported elderly persons was associated significantly with aging. Expand
Prediction of gestational diabetes mellitus by soluble (pro)renin receptor during the first trimester.
Increased s(P)RR concentrations during the first trimester may predict the development of GDM later in pregnancy, a multivariate model adjusted for baseline characteristics, medical complications, and gestational characteristics revealed. Expand
Positive predictive value of ICD-10 codes for acute myocardial infarction in Japan: a validation study at a single center
The positive predictive value (PPV) of local or ICD-10 codes for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in Japanese claims was high, and the PPV was even higher for the I CD-10 code for AMI for those patients who received AMI care through the DPC case mix scheme. Expand
GSK2656157, a PERK inhibitor, reduced LPS-induced IL-1β production through inhibiting Caspase 1 activation in macrophage-like J774.1 cells
It was found that GSK2656157 specifically inhibited ER stress induced by large amount of LPS and reduced LPS-induced IL-1β production through inhibition of Caspase 1 activation. Expand
Serum soluble (pro)renin receptor levels in patients with essential hypertension
In patients with essential hypertension (EH), serum s(P)RR levels correlated positively with renal function independent of age, BP and HbA1c, and these findings support s( P)RR as a useful biomarker that reflects the status of the tissue RAS. Expand
Claims-Based Definition of Death in Japanese Claims Database: Validity and Implications
The claims-based definitions of death developed in this study had high specificity and PPVs while sensitivity was around 60%. Expand
Association between Soluble (Pro)Renin Receptor Concentration in Cord Blood and Small for Gestational Age Birth: A Cross-Sectional Study
High s(P)RR concentration is associated with a lower SGA birth likelihood, and the P-value for trend was also significant (P = 0.020). Expand
Blood pressure, heart rate, and double product in a pooled cohort: the Japan Arteriosclerosis Longitudinal Study
Objective: To identify the characteristics of blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), and double product in a Japanese population sample. Methods: We pooled individual records from 1999 to 2005 for 111Expand
Serum Soluble (Pro)Renin Receptor Levels in Maintenance Hemodialysis Patients
Serum s(P)RR levels were significantly higher in hemodialysis patients when compared with subjects with normal renal function, although s(p)RR is dialyzed to some extent, but to a lesser extent than creatinine, suggesting that serum s( P)RR could be used as a marker for atherosclerotic conditions in he modialysis Patients.
