Increased arterial stiffness linked to restrictive spirometry pattern and reduced forced vital capacity

Added: 27.09.2017 12:35 | 1 views | 0 comments

Increased arterial stiffness is a known predictor of cardiovascular diseases in different populations, including healthy subjects and patients with hypertension, diabetes, or renal disease. A new study examining arterial stiffness in a large population determined that both restrictive spirometry pattern and reduced forced vital capacity (FVC) were associated with a higher risk of arterial stiffness not only in men but also in women. The investigators found that arterial stiffness increased fourfold when FVC decreased.

Chronic bronchitis: New insights could lead to first diagnostic test, better treatments

Added: 08.09.2017 14:27 | 2 views | 0 comments

Researchers describe how the concentration of mucins -- the proteins that make mucus thick -- is abnormally high in chronic bronchitis and that high mucin concentrations are associated with disease severity in people with chronic bronchitis. This finding could become the first-ever objective marker of chronic bronchitis and lead to the creation of diagnostic and prognostic tools.
