Highlights in Family Medicine

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.

Visceral adipose tissue predicts subclinical carotid atherosclerosis

As reported in Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, ultrasound measurement of visceral adipose tissue, unlike the waist circumference, is associated with ultrasound-measured carotid intima-media thickness and an independent predictor of carotid plaques.

s-H-FABP levels predict outcome in ICU patients

As reported in Clinical Research in Cardiology, the level of serum heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (s-H-FABP) is higher in ER patients admitted to the ICU than ER patients admitted to other departments. The s-H-FABP level was also higher in ICU non-survivors than ICU survivors. A s-H-FABP level of 20.95 ng/ml had a 81.1% and 66.0% sensitivity and specificity, respectively, for in-hospital mortality.
