Patients who use statin may be at lower risk of developing cancer: Study

The researchers also found that deaths from any cause was lower among statin users compared to non-users: at ten years, 60.5 per cent (21,886) statin users had died and 78.8 per cent (40,130) non-statin users had died, meaning that statin use was associated with a 38 per cent reduction in deaths from any cause compared to non-users.

Artificial intelligence-enhanced ECGs may speed up cardiac failure diagnosis, treatment

AI-enhanced ECG was better than standard blood tests in identifying which patients have severe Left Ventricular Systolic dysfunction (LVSD) (35% or less of blood in the heart pumped out with each contraction), with a performance measure of 0.89 vs. 0.80.
The left ventricle supplies most of the heart’s pumping power, so it is larger than the other chambers and essential for normal function. (Representational Image)(Unsplash)

More women than men die of heart failure. Here’s why

According to the researchers, obesity also increases the risk of diabetes 2. A woman with diabetes has a much higher relative risk of heart complications and death than a man.
The study says that many of the differences between woman and men when it comes to heart disease are connected to the sex hormone, oestrogen.(Unsplash)

Early menopause may raise the risk of cardiovascular issues

During an average of seven years of follow-up, researchers found that women who had experienced premature menopause were significantly more likely to develop conventional heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high levels of “bad” cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes.

Daytime napping lowers risk of heart attack

The impact of napping on heart health has been hotly contested since many of the published studies on the topic have failed to consider napping frequency.

Wearable cameras can improve life quality of heart patients

Minute-by-minute images captured by these little ‘eyes’ provide valuable data on diet, exercise and medication adherence that can then be used to fine-tune self-management.

Statins effective against cancer-linked weight loss

The condition known as cachexia, or wasting syndrome, is common among patients with chronic diseases such as cancer, heart failure and AIDS.
In experiments on mice, the team identified a key protein TLR4 (toll-like receptor 4) in this process and showed that “atorvastatin” -- a class of statins -- can attenuate its effects.(Shutterstock)
