A huge study of more than 160,000 people in 21 countries has found that women are less likely to have cardiovascular disease, and die of it, than men.
Cleveland Clinic researchers have identified a gut microbe generated byproduct - phenylacetylglutamine - that is linked to development of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack, stroke and death.
New study results found that guideline-directed medical treatment is as effective as invasive procedures, such as coronary stenting, at preventing heart attack, stroke, and death in patients with stable coronary artery disease.
Too few people covered by Medicare participated in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation after a heart attack or acute heart event or surgery, particularly women, the elderly and non-white patients, according to new research published today in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

In response to continued discussion on the validity of the conclusions of the EXCEL trial comparing coronary stenting to coronary bypass surgery, The American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) has released a statement calling for the release of all trial data to help surgeons and patients make informed choices based on sound analysis.
Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that using lungs from donors who are considered high risk for certain infectious diseases compared to standard risk donors results in similar one-year survival for recipients. In addition, researchers saw no difference in rejection or graft (donor lung) survival after one year in patients receiving lungs from increased-risk donors.
Jacob Scott, M.D., Ph.D., a physician researcher from Cleveland Clinic's Department of Translational Hematology and Oncology Research, recently received a $2.8 million grant from the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, to study how ecological and evolutionary mechanisms contribute to lung cancer development and progression, and how the interplay between these mechanisms may provide novel treatment insights.
A new collaborative study led by Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals has found that commonly used clinical indicators of immune status and inflammation can predict mortality in the general population.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded more than $12 million to Cleveland Clinic researchers to study the critical link between gut microbial pathways and the development of cardiometabolic diseases.
