Highlights in Family Medicine

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.

Combination tiotropium + formoterol superior to tiotropium alone in COPD patients

As reported in Pulmonary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, combination tiotropium (18 mcg) + formoterol (12 mcg) was superior to tiotropium alone in COPD (n=44) patients inadequately controlled with bronchodilator monotherapy. Combination therapy resulted in an increased bronchodilator response (FEV1 and FVC) and a maximum change in FEV1 and FVC over 24 h.

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.
