Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

Low vitamin D associated with statin-induced myalgia

As reported in Clinical Therapeutics, of 450 patients prescribed high-dose simvastatin (80 mg qd) for dyslipidemia, 11.1% complained of myalgias. The vitamin D level was lower in patients with myalgias than patients without myalgias (26.2 vs. 36.3 ng/mL).

VPAC1 overexpression associated with colon cancer aggression

As reported in Tumor Biology, VPAC1 expression is increased in poorly differentiated compared to well-differentiated colon cancer. VPAC1 expression is also increased in the blood vessels and macrophages adjacent to colon cancer tissues compared to healthy tissues. The overexpression of VPAC1 is related to EGFR overexpression.

Waist-to-height ratio does not predict cardiometabolic risk in children

As reported in Clinical Nutrition, the waist-to-height ratio is inferior to the waist circumference and BMI in predicting body fat percentage and cardiometabolic risk factors in children 3-17 years of age.
