Metabolic Syndrome From Adolescence to Early Adulthood: Effect of Infancy-Onset Dietary Counseling of Low Saturated Fat The Special Turku Coronary Risk Factor Intervention Project (STRIP)

Repeated infancy-onset dietary intervention is effective in the prevention of MetS in adolescence.

Effect of Repeated Dietary Counseling on Serum Lipoproteins From Infancy to Adulthood

Repeated dietary counseling is effective in decreasing saturated fat intake and serum LDL-C values from infancy until 19 years of age in both genders, and in boys, significant intervention effects are evident in various lipoprotein measures, indicating a more favorable lipid profile in the counseling group.

Clustered metabolic risk and leisure-time physical activity in adolescents: effect of dose?

Sedentary adolescents had an increased risk for clustered metabolic risk compared with physically more active peers and focus in the prevention of clustered risk should especially be on avoiding sedentary lifestyle.

Utility of Currently Recommended Pediatric Dyslipidemia Classifications in Predicting Dyslipidemia in Adulthood: Evidence From the Childhood Determinants of Adult Health (CDAH) Study, Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study, and Bogalusa Heart Study

The separate use of NHANES cut points for high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and NCEP cut points from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey yielded the most accurate classification of adolescents who developed dyslipidemia in adulthood.

Vascular Endothelial Function and Leisure-Time Physical Activity in Adolescents

Leisure-time physical activity is directly associated with brachial artery FMD responses in 13-year-old boys, providing evidence that physical activity beneficially influences endothelial function in healthy male adolescents.

Impact of Repeated Dietary Counseling Between Infancy and 14 Years of Age on Dietary Intakes and Serum Lipids and Lipoproteins: The STRIP Study

Repeated dietary counseling remains effective in decreasing saturated fat and cholesterol intake and serum cholesterol values at least until 14 years of age, and Puberty markedly influences cholesterol concentrations.

Lowered levels of serum albumin and HDL‐cholesterol in children with a recent mild infection

A mild infection lowers serum HDL‐cholesterol and serum albumin concentrations, which both favour atherogenesis, according to a study investigating effects of recent infections on risk factors for coronary heart disease in children.

Determinants of short-term variation in arterial flow-mediated dilatation in healthy young men.

The data suggest that strict requirements for fasting conditions may be unnecessary when measuring peripheral endothelial function using the ultrasound technique, including consuming a low-fat meal and circadian rhythms in endogenous hormonal levels.

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein and coronary heart disease mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes: a 7-year follow-up study.

In this large cohort of type 2 diabetic patients, hs-CRP was an independent risk factor for CHD deaths and was found to be linked to death in univariate and multivariate analyses.

High Serum Levels of Advanced Glycation End Products Predict Increased Coronary Heart Disease Mortality in Nondiabetic Women but not in Nondiabetic Men: A Population-Based 18-Year Follow-Up Study

The present study is the first to show that serum levels of AGEs can predict total, CVD, and CHD mortality in nondiabetic women, even after the adjustment for confounding factors.
