Circulating Dipeptidyl Peptidase 3 Predicts Cardiogenic Shock and Mortality in Acute Coronary Syndromes

Circulating dipeptidyl peptidase 3 (cDPP3) is a protease involved in the degradation of angiotensin II which disturbs peripheral blood pressure regulation and compromises left ventricular function. A new study by Florian A. Wenzl et al. published in the European Heart Journal identified cDPP3 as a novel marker of cardiogenic shock (CS) and increased mortality in patients with (ACS).

Short and medium chain acylcarnitines as markers of outcome in diabetic and non-diabetic subjects with acute coronary syndromes

Circulating levels of acetylcarnitine independently predict residual cardiovascular risk in patients with ACS.

Growth differentiation factor-15 and prediction of cancer-associated thrombosis and mortality

In collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna and the University Hospital of Zurich, members of the Center for Molecular Cardiology have studied the role of growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15) for its predictive utility for adverse events in patients with cancer.

Low-density lipoprotein electronegativity and risk of death after acute coronary syndromes: A case-cohort analysis

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol (LDL-C) promotes atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), with changes in LDL electronegativity modulating its pro-atherogenic/pro-thrombotic effects.

Wein, Schokolade und Kaffee: Wie gesund sind sie?

Das Leben besteht aus mehr als nur Arbeit, auch für engagierte Kardiolog:innen, Gastroenterolog:innen und Ernährungsmediziner:innen. So geniessen wir alle – und auch die Patient:innen – gerne Wein, Getränke, Süssigkeiten und Kaffee, allein oder in Gesellschaft. Sind das verbotene Freuden oder schützen sie gar vor Krankheit und Tod?

Sex and cardiovascular disease

For many years, cardiovascular disease was considered a male disease. Consequently, common data of registries, clinical trials and the like, were all reported for the entire patient population and only until recently has it become mandatory to report data on males and females separately.
