Highlights in Internal Medicine

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.

Sleep duration linked to lung cancer risk

As reported in BMC Public Health, men (age range, 42-60 years) who slept < 7 h/night or > 8 h/night are at increased risk for lung cancer. Specifically, amongst current smokers, the HR for lung cancer in men who slept < 6.5 h/night or > 8 h/night was 2.23 and 2.09, respectively. It is thought that melatonin excretion and/or low-grade inflammation account for this observation.

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).
