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.

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.
