As reported in the Journal of Neuroimmunology, soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor II levels are increased in patients with untreated multiple sclerosis (n-161) compared to healthy controls (n=46), and the levels increased over a 2-year follow-up, but were not associated with the severity of disability.
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).
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.
