Rho-associated kinase activity is a biomarker for cardiovascular events

As reported in Hypertension, rho-associated kinase activity is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events. The study involved 633 patients undergoing routine health screening examinations with a median follow-up of 42 months. There were 29 cardiovascular-related deaths, 2 myocardial infarctions, 20 revascularizations, 15 strokes, and 17 hospitalizations for heart failure. The HRs for first cardiovascular event, death, stroke, and revascularization were 2.19, 2.57, 2.14, and 2.68, respectively.

AGEs increase cardiovascular risk in T2DM

As reported in Diabetes, elevated advanced glycation end products increase the risk for incident cardiovascular events (HR=1.31) in type 2 diabetics (n=218).

Muscle strength in adolescence decreases CVD risk

As reported in BMC Medicine, adolescents (n=38588) with the highest tertile of muscle strength had a decreased risk of CVD (HR=0.88) compared to adolescents with the lowest tertile of muscle strength after 42 y of follow-up. Of note, low muscle strength in adolescence by itself had no effect on CVD risk in middle age (HR=0.99). In contrast, high muscle strength in adolescence significantly decreased the risk of CVD in middle age (HR=1.31).
