Clinical Pearls in Nurse Practitioner

Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

Psoriasis is strongly associated with non-fatal CVD

Researchers at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health conducted a study involving 96,008 women in the Nurse’s Health Study II with 18 years of follow up, which demonstrated a strikingly strong association with non-fatal cardiovascular disease. There were 2463 participants with psoriasis and 1,709,069 person-years of follow up. There were 713 cases of non-fatal cardiovascular disease (HR=1.55). The HRs for myocardial infarction and stroke were 1.70 and 1.45, respectively. For women with psoriatic arthritis, the HR was 3.47. For women < 40 years of age and psoriasis > 9 years, the HRs were 3.26 and 3.09, respectively.

Sex hormones associated with CRC risk in men

As reported in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology and based on participants in the Nurses’ Health Study, Women’s Health Study, Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study, and Physicians’ Health Study II, total testosterone (RR = 0.62) and SHBG levels (RR = 0.65), and the estradiol:testosterone ratio (RR = 2.63) are associated with colorectal cancer risk in men. An inverse association exists between the estradiol:testosterone ratio (RR = 0.43) and colorectal cancer risk in women.
