Early arteriosclerosis and its risk factors in subjects with prediabetes and new-onset diabetes

Xiaoli Liu, Lanxiang Liu, Rui Wang, Xiaojiao Jia, Binbin Liu, Ning Ma, and Qiang Lu

occurred, an abnormal change in the blood glucose level may induce the occurrence of early arteriosclerosis and an increase in the blood glucose can further aggravate it. However, there have been few studies on early arteriosclerosis in populations with

Morbidity, mortality, and socioeconomics in Klinefelter syndrome and 47,XYY syndrome: a comparative review

Lukas Ochsner Ridder, Agnethe Berglund, Kirstine Stochholm, Simon Chang, and Claus H Gravholt

problem in modern health care and perhaps the implementation of better screening methods, involvement of school nurses, and general information about the syndrome could lead to more KS and 47,XYY males being diagnosed earlier, increasing the likelihood of

density (BMD) decreases. Accumulation of arterial calcifications (ACs) in the tunica media contributes to arteriosclerosis with impaired vessel compliance and decreased distal perfusion, while in the tunica intima, ACs are associated with advanced focal

Metabolic syndrome: is equine disease comparable to what we know in humans?

Antonia Ertelt, Ann-Kristin Barton, Robert R Schmitz, and Heidrun Gehlen

current knowledge, atherosclerosis does not occur in horses, but it remains to be evaluated why arteriosclerosis is not a feature of EMS. It has to be considered that there is a different amount of HDL and LDL cholesteryl esters in horses compared with
