Clinical Outcomes With #Beta-Blocker Use in Patients With Recent History of Myocardial #Infarction

It is uncertain whether beta-blockers (BBs) are beneficial in contemporary stable patients with prior myocardial infarction (MI). Therefore, we sought to examine the effectiveness of BB use in this population.. ..We included 33,811 patients with prior MI, of whom 21,440 (63.4%) were dispensed a BB. The median age was 78 years, and 56% were male. There was no difference in the 1-year hazard of death/hospitalization … Continue reading Clinical Outcomes With #Beta-Blocker Use in Patients With Recent History of Myocardial #Infarction

#Potato Protein Isolate Stimulates #Muscle Protein Synthesis at Rest and with Resistance Exercise in Young Women

Skeletal muscle myofibrillar protein synthesis (MPS) increases in response to protein feeding and to resistance exercise (RE), where each stimuli acts synergistically when combined. The efficacy of plant proteins such as potato protein (PP) isolate to stimulate MPS is unknown. We aimed to determine the effects of PP ingestion on daily MPS with and without RE in healthy women. In a single blind, parallel-group design, … Continue reading #Potato Protein Isolate Stimulates #Muscle Protein Synthesis at Rest and with Resistance Exercise in Young Women
