The Relationship Between Body #Mass Index and In-Hospital #Mortality in the Contemporary Era of an Acute Myocardial #Infarction Management

The association between body mass index (BMI) and clinical outcomes following an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains controversial. Our objective was to investigate the relationship between BMI and AMI presentation, in-hospital clinical course and mortality in the contemporary era of AMI management. Methods: Patients, hospitalized for an AMI between October 2015 and December 2016, were …

#Coronavirus induces #diabetic macrophage-mediated inflammation via SETDB2

COVID-19 induces a robust, extended inflammatory β€œcytokine storm” that contributes to an increased morbidity and mortality, particularly in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Macrophages are a key innate immune cell population responsible for the cytokine storm that has been shown, in T2D, to promote excess inflammation in response to infection. Using peripheral monocytes and …
