Migraine frequency and risk of cardiovascular disease in women

T. Kurth, M. Schurks, G. Logroscino, J. E. Buring
2009 Neurology  
Migraine has been associated with risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Data on the association between migraine frequency and CVD are sparse. Methods: Prospective cohort study of 27,798 US women aged Ն45 years, who were free of CVD, and for whom we had information on lipids and migraine frequency. We categorized migraine frequency as Ͻ monthly, monthly, and Ն weekly. Incident CVD was confirmed after medical record review. Results: Of the 3,568 women with active migraine at baseline, 75.3%

Compared with women without migraine, the multivariable-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) (95% confidence intervals) among active migraineurs for CVD were 1.55 (1.22-1.97), 0.65 (0.31-1.38), and 1.93 (0.86 -4.33) for an attack frequency of Ͻ monthly, monthly, and Ն weekly, respectively. The association between migraine frequency and CVD was only apparent among migraineurs with aura. Among those, the multivariable-adjusted HRs for women with a migraine frequency Ͻ monthly ranged from 1.81 (1.30 -2.50) for coronary revascularizations to 2.43 (1.58 -3.74) for myocardial infarction. For women with active migraine with aura and migraine frequencies of Ն weekly, we only found significant increased risk of ischemic stroke (HR ϭ 4.25 [1.36 -13.29]). Conclusions: In our data, the association between migraine and cardiovascular disease varies by migraine frequency. Significant associations were only found among women with migraine with aura. Ischemic stroke was the only outcome associated with a high-attack frequency while a low-attack frequency was associated with any vascular event. Low number of outcome events should caution the interpretation.

Estimating risk for developing epilepsy: A population-based study in Rochester, Minnesota

D. C. Hesdorffer, G. Logroscino, E. K. T. Benn, N. Katri, G. Cascino, W. A. Hauser
2010 Neurology  
Objectives: Previous studies that have assessed the risk of developing epilepsy have failed to account for the competing risk of death, significant in the elderly where epilepsy incidence is highest. We report the lifetime risk for epilepsy, accounting for the competing risk of mortality. Methods: Lifetime risk and cumulative incidence of epilepsy were examined among Rochester, MN, residents between 1960 and 1979. Age-, gender-, and calendar year-specific deaths were obtained for Rochester, MN.

Incidence and remaining lifetime risk of Parkinson disease in advanced age

J. A. Driver, G. Logroscino, J. M. Gaziano, T. Kurth
2009 Neurology  
Objective: To estimate the incidence and lifetime risk (LTR) of Parkinson disease (PD) in a large cohort of men. Background: Age is the strongest risk factor for PD, but whether its incidence continues to increase after age 80 years remains unclear. Methods: Prospective cohort of 21,970 US male physicians aged 40 -84 years at baseline who did not report PD before study entry. Participants self-reported PD on yearly follow-up questionnaires, and all deaths were confirmed. We calculated incidence

Results: Five hundred sixty-three cases of PD were identified over 23 years of follow-up. The crude incidence rate of PD was 121 cases/100,000 person-years. Age-specific incidence rates increased sharply beginning at age 60 years, peaked in those aged 85-89 years, and declined beginning at age 90 years. Cumulative incidence substantially overestimated the long-term risk of PD, particularly in those aged 80 years and older. Cumulative incidence was 9.9% (95% confidence interval [CI] 8.48%-11.30%) from ages 45 to 100 years, whereas LTR for the same period was 6.7% (95% CI 6.01%-7.43%). The incidence and LTR of PD decreased with increasing exposure to smoking. Conclusions: Our study provides evidence that the incidence of Parkinson disease (PD) in men increases through age 89 years. Whether the subsequent decline represents a true decrease in risk remains to be established. A history of smoking substantially decreased the incidence and lifetime risk of PD. Incidence studies that do not adjust for competing risks of death may overestimate the true risk of PD in the elderly.

2014 Journal of materials science. Materials in medicine  
Bone substitutes are being increasingly used in surgery as over two millions bone grafting procedures are performed worldwide per year. Autografts still represent the gold standard for bone substitution, though the morbidity and the inherent limited availability are the main limitations. Allografts, i.e. banked bone, are osteoconductive and weakly osteoinductive, though there are still concerns about the residual infective risks, costs and donor availability issues. As an alternative, xenograft

Ceramic-based synthetic bone substitutes are alternatively based on hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphates, and are widely used in the clinical practice. Indeed, despite being completely resorbable and weaker than cortical bone, they have exhaustively proved to be effective. Biomimetic HAs are the evolution of traditional HA and contains ions (carbonates, Si, Sr, Fl, Mg) that mimic natural HA (biomimetic HA). Injectable cements represent another evolution, enabling mininvasive techniques. Bone morphogenetic proteins (namely BMP2 and 7) are the only bone inducing growth factors approved for human use in spine surgery and for the treatment of tibial nonunion. Demineralized bone matrix and platelet rich plasma did not prove to be effective and their use as bone substitutes remains controversial. Experimental cell-based approaches are considered the best suitable emerging strategies in several regenerative medicine application, including bone regeneration. In some cases, cells have been used as bioactive vehicles delivering osteoinductive genes locally to achieve bone regeneration. In particular, mesenchymal stem cells have been widely exploited for this purpose, being multipotent cells capable of efficient osteogenic potential. Here we intend to review and

Use of antidepressants and the risk of Parkinson's disease: a prospective study

A Alonso, L A G. Rodriguez, G Logroscino, M A Hernan
2009 Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry  
Background-Individuals with depression have a higher risk of Parkinson's disease (PD), but the timing of the association is unknown. We assessed whether initiation of antidepressant therapy was associated with PD risk in a large population-based database from the United Kingdom and explored the timing of this association. Methods-We conducted a case-control study nested in the General Practice Research Database (GPRD) cohort, a large computerized database with clinical information from more

Use of antidepressants was obtained from the computer records. Results-We included 999 PD cases and 6,261 controls. The rate ratio (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) of PD in initiators of antidepressant therapy compared with non-initiators was 1.85 (1.25, 2.75). The association was stronger during the first two years after initiation of medication use (RR 2.19; 95% CI 1.38, 3.46) than later (RR 1.23; 95% CI 0.57, 2.67). Results were similar for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants separately. Conclusion-Initiation of any antidepressant therapy was associated with a higher risk of PD in the two years after initiation of treatment, which suggests that depressive symptoms could be an early manifestation of PD, preceding motor dysfunction.
