The results could be an important step toward targeted interventions after kidney transplantation, with the goal of reducing cardiovascular risk and mortality and improving long-term results. ‘Early identification of patients with worsening arterial disease following transplantation would mean that they reduce arterial to benefit from drug treatments stiffness,’says Dr. Delahousse. Further studies would be needed to determine whether this strategy the complete results of the kidney can be improved.

When first measured, three months after transplantation, aortic stiffness was associated exclusively features the transplant recipient. The aorta was stiffer transplant patients, the men were older and had higher blood pressure.The surveyThe study examined one hundred fifty-five and field athletes who had disputed in the national and international athletic competitions. The athletes were farther in patience group and a sprint set – split . Control group consisted of 240 non-athletic healthy individuals. 46 percent of the groups were further into elite-level and national subdivided.

The survey found that two in the NRF2 Gen. Variations in occurred more often in endurance athletes as in sprinters. Eighty per cent of elite-level endurance sports carried the A allele of the NRF2 A / C. Single nucleotide protein, as compared to simply 46 percent of the elite-level sprinters Nir. Eynon said. The study also found that combined NRF2 AA+ NRF2 C / T genotype was more common in endurance athletes than in the sprinters group and of the control group. – So, concludes Eynon, few of us are truly born to walk.
