Associations between vaspin levels and coronary artery disease

March 19, 2020

Associations between Vaspin Levels and Coronary Artery Disease

In a new publication from Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications; DOI https://doi.org/10.15212/CVIA.2019.0565, Lutfu Askin, Okan Tanriverdi, Hakan Tibilli and Serdar Turkmen from the Department of Cardiology, Adiyaman Education and Research Hospital, Adiyaman, Turkey consider associations between vaspin levels and coronary artery disease.

Vaspin is a new biological marker of CAD. Low serum vaspin levels are associated with coronary artery stenosis. Plasma vaspin concentration reflects possible endothelial dysfunction in CAD patients and correlates with CAD severity. Plasma vaspin concentration is associated with metabolic syndrome and obesity parameters. The ultimate goal regarding vaspin is to detect and prevent diseases caused by atherosclerosis, as well as to preserve vascular health and contribute to public health.

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
