  • The findings are suggestive of a small but potentially important reduction in cardiovascular risk on modification of dietary fat, but not reduction of total fat, in longer trials. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reasons for these negative findings are the complexity of the disease and insufficient characterisation of the phenotype and environmental factors. (springer.com)
  • As a result of these preliminary findings, PHDs is attracting increasing interest as potential therapeutic targets in a wide range of diseases. (nih.gov)
  • These findings are similar to several earlier reports of job strain predicting recurrent MI in both men and women (3), as well as with studies in humans and non-human primate investigations that identified a number of specific biologic and behavioral pathways through which stress promotes the progression of cardiovascular disease. (nih.gov)
  • A 2014 systematic review looking at observational studies of dietary intake of fatty acids, observational studies of measured fatty acid levels in the blood, and intervention studies of polyunsaturated fat supplementation concluded that the findings ″do not support cardiovascular guidelines that promote high consumption of long-chain omega-3 and omega-6 and polyunsaturated fatty acids and suggest reduced consumption of total saturated fatty acids.

  • Water temperature affects the disease seasonally as the climate changes, specifically when the water temperature is over 18 °C (64 °F). Infection is linked to water temperatures over 18 °C, although acute outbreaks have been discovered in water temperatures of 14-15 °C. Low water quality caused by poor sanitary conditions has been shown to influence evolution of infection. (wikipedia.org)
