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.

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.
