Thickness of carotid artery intima is an independent risk factor for psoriasis
Psoriasis (PsO) has been associated with lipoprotein abnormalities, visceral adiposity, atherosclerosis, and coronary artery disease (CAD) in several studies; however, data concerning the risk of psoriasis relevant to these ...
Relationship of serum pentraxin-3 with peripheral arterial disease
Aim: Since atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory process associated with peripheral artery disease (PAD), the inflammatory marker pentraxin (PTX) may increase in PAD. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional ...
An update on the relationships between rheumatoid arthritis and atherosclerosis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease. Cardiovascular events are the most important cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Beyond the traditional cardiovascular risk ...
Evaluation of epicardial adipose tissue and carotid intima-media thickness as a marker of atherosclerosis in patients with inflammatory bowel disease
Background and aim: this study aimed to compare carotid intima media (CIMT) and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) measurements, which are considered as markers for the detection of early atherosclerosis in healthy ...
Nutritional status and severity of coronary artery disease

Hsa-miR-584-5p as a novel candidate biomarker in Turkish men with severe coronary artery disease
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is still the preliminary cause of mortality and morbidity in the developed world. Identification of novel predictive and therapeutic biomarkers is crucial for accurate diagnosis, prognosis and ...
Impact of physical activity on inflammation: Effects on cardiovascular disease risk and other inflammatory conditions
Since the 19th century, many studies have enlightened the role of inflammation in atherosclerosis, changing our perception of “vessel plaque due to oxidized lipoproteins”, similar to a “rusted pipe”, towards a disease ...
Visfatin and insulin levels and cigarette smoking are independent risk factors for hidradenitis suppurativa: a case-control study
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. HS has been associated with obesity, adipokine imbalance, dyslipidemia, pro-inflammation, and metabolic syndrome (MS). The aim of this study was to ...
Evaluation of the impact of treatment on endothelial function and cardiac performance in acromegaly
Objective: To evaluate the effects of treatment on left ventricular (LV) performance and endothelial function in patients with acromegaly. Method: Nineteen patients with active acromegaly (AA), 18 patients with ...
Plasma glycated albumin levels clearly detect hearing loss and atherosclerosis in patients with impaired fasting glucose
Objective: To describe the relationship between atherosclerosis and hearing thresholds in prediabetic patients with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and to determine the efficacy of glycated albumin in predicting carotid ...
