Highlights in Internal Medicine

Mean platelet volume predicts silent cerebral infarction

As reported in the Internal Medicine Journal, the mean platelet volume is increased in patients with a silent cerebral infarction than in those without (10.4 vs. 9.2 fL). The OR for silent cerebral infarction was 7.822 in patients in the highest mean platelet volume quartile compared to the lowest quartile.

Relationship benefit in women with IHD

As reported in Clinical Infectious Diseases, HIV-infected patients are at increased risk for non-Hodgkin‘s lymphoma (NHL). Of 6036 patients with 21607 person-years of follow-up, there were 37 incident cases of NHL. Compared to patients with ≤ 50 copies/mL, patients with 51-500 and > 500 copies/mL had HRs of 1.66 and 2.39 for NHL, respectively.

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).
