Highlights in Family Medicine

CT screening for lung cancer in patients 55-80 years of age beneficial

As reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine, annual CT screening of ever-smokers between 55 and 80 years of age for lung cancer is beneficial. Such screening would result in 45-54% of diagnoses in stage I or II, a 14% reduction in lung cancer mortality, and 497 deaths averted.

Green tea reduces BP and improves lipid profile

As reported in Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases, a meta-analysis involved 20 RCTs and 1536 participants showed that consumption of green tea (Camellia sinensis) is associated with a reduction in systolic blood pressure (-1.94 mmHg) and improved lipid profile (TC, -0.13 mmol/l; LDL-C, -0.19 mmol/l). Additional studies quantifying the association are needed.

Predictors of poor coronary collateral circulation in stable CAD

As reported in Angiology, the fasting blood glucose and serum uric acid levels and the white blood cell count were higher in patients with stable CAD (n=480) and associated with poor coronary collateral circulation.
