Randomized trial of vitamin D versus placebo supplementation on markers of systemic inflammation in hypertensive patients.

Martin R Grübler, Stefan Pilz et 14 al.

Oct 28, 2021 in Nutrition, metabolism, and cardiovascular diseases : NMCD
Animal and cell models indicated that vitamin D modulates inflammatory activity, which is considered relevant in the pathogenesis of arterial hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. We therefore aimed to investigate the effect of vitamin D supplementation on systemic markers of inflammation in a cohort of hypertensive patients. The Styrian Vitamin D Hypertension Trial is a single-centre, double-...

SARS-CoV-2 reinfections: Overview of efficacy and duration of natural and hybrid immunity.

Stefan Pilz et 5 al.

Feb 8, 2022 in Environmental research
Seroprevalence surveys suggest that more than a third and possibly more than half of the global population has been infected with SARS-CoV-2 by early 2022. As large numbers of people continue to be infected, the efficacy and duration of natural immunity in terms of protection against SARS-CoV-2 reinfections and severe disease is of crucial significance for the future. This narrative review provide...


Nutrients, Vol. 14, Pages 1483: Clinical Practice in the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of Vitamin D Deficiency: A Central and Eastern European Expert Consensus Statement

Pawel Pludowski, Stefan Pilz et 9 al.

Apr 2, 2022 in Nutrients
Vitamin D deficiency has a high worldwide prevalence, but actions to improve this public health problem are challenged by the heterogeneity of nutritional and clinical vitamin D guidelines, with respect to the diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency. We aimed to address this issue by providing respective recommendations for adults, developed by a European expert panel, using the Delphi met...

Hypomagnesemia Is a Risk Factor for Infections after Kidney Transplantation: A Retrospective Cohort Analysis.

Balazs Odler et 16 al.

Apr 14, 2021 in Nutrients
Magnesium (Mg2+) deficiency is a common finding in the early phase after kidney transplantation (KT) and has been linked to immune dysfunction and infections. Data on the association of hypomagnesemia and the rate of infections in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) are sparse. We conducted a single-center retrospective cohort study of KTRs transplanted between 2005 and 2015. Laboratory data, incl...

Biomedicines, Vol. 10, Pages 750: Impact of Thyroid Function on Pregnancy and Neonatal Outcome in Women with and without PCOS

Sarah Feigl et 9 al.

Mar 23, 2022 in Biomedicines
Background : Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are more prone to autoimmune thyroiditis, and both disorders lead to subfertility and pregnancy related complications. The aim of this study was to investigate whether mothers with and without PCOS and their offspring have comparable thyroid parameters at term and how thyroid parameters are associated with perinatal outcome in this populatio...


Nutrients, Vol. 14, Pages 1360: Effects of Vitamin D Supplementation on 24 Hour Blood Pressure in Patients with Low 25 Hydroxyvitamin D Levels: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Verena Theiler-Schwetz et 10 al.

Mar 24, 2022 in Nutrients
Accumulating evidence suggests that potential cardiovascular benefits of vitamin D supplementation may be restricted to individuals with very low 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations; the effect of vitamin D on blood pressure (BP) remains unclear. We addressed this issue in a post hoc analysis of the double blind, randomized, placebo controlled Styrian Vitamin D Hypertension Trial (2011-20...


DXA-Derived Indices in the Characterisation of Sarcopenia.

Natascha Schweighofer et 13 al.

Dec 31, 2021 in Nutrients
Sarcopenia is linked with increased risk of falls, osteoporosis and mortality. No consensus exists about a gold standard "dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) index for muscle mass determination" in sarcopenia diagnosis. Thus, many indices exist, but data on sarcopenia diagnosis agreement are scarce. Regarding sarcopenia diagnosis reliability, the impact of influencing factors on sarcopenia prev...


Expression Profiles of miR-22-5p and miR-142-3p Indicate Hashimoto's Disease and Are related to Thyroid Antibodies.

Olivia Trummer et 16 al.

Jan 19, 2022 in Genes
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is the most prevalent autoimmune disorder of the thyroid (AITD) and characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies evoked by a, to date, not fully understood dysregulation of the immune system. Autoreactive lymphocytes and inflammatory processes in the thyroid gland can impair or enhance thyroid hormone secretion. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNA...
