Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

NSAID use inversely related to prostate cancer incidence and mortality

Based on a meta-analysis reported in BMC Medicine, NSAID use is associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer (OR=0.92 [total] and 0.81 [advanced]) and prostate cancer-specific mortality (HR=0.86 [total] and 0.81 [advanced]).

HIV viremia associated with increased risk for NHL

As reported in Modern Pathology, CDX2 expression is associated with low-grade small intestinal adenocarcinomas, decreased nodal metastases, and decreased perineural invasion, while MUC1 expression is associated with high-grade tumors, and nodular and infiltrative tumors. The CDX2+/MUC1- immunophenotype is associated with increased survival.

Mean platelet volume predicts silent cerebral infarction

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.
