*  Hypertension and Obesity and the Risk of Kidney Cancer in 2 Large Cohorts of US Men and Women | Hypertension
Kidney cancer incidence is increasing globally. Reasons for this rise are unclear but could relate to obesity and hypertension. We analyzed longitudinal relationships between hypertension and obesity and kidney cancer incidence in 156 774 participants of the Women's Health Initiative clinical trials and observational studies over 10.8 years. In addition, we examined the effect of blood pressure (BP) on kidney cancer deaths for over 25 years among the 353 340 men screened for the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT). In the Women's Health Initiative, systolic BP (SBP) was categorized in 6 groups from ,120 to ,160 mm Hg, and body mass index was categorized using standard criteria. In age-adjusted analyses, kidney cancer risk increased across SBP categories (P value for trend ,0.0001) and body mass index categories (P value for trend ,0.0001). In adjusted Cox proportional hazards models, both SBP levels and body mass index were predictors of kidney cancer. In the ...

*  Kidney Disease as a Risk Factor for Development of Cardiovascular Disease | Hypertension
In high-risk populations, most but not all studies have suggested that decreased GFR is an independent risk factor for outcomes. This is true in the elderly, in whom even mild reductions of kidney function are associated with worse outcomes,137 in studies of subjects with hypertension,4 in studies of populations with a higher than normal prevalence of diabetes,165 and among older patients undergoing general surgery.169 In the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT), the baseline creatinine level was not independently associated with CVD outcomes or all-cause mortality. However, an increase in follow-up serum creatinine level at 6 years did predict adverse CVD outcomes.167 The authors postulated that the lack of association with baseline serum creatinine may have been due to a narrow range of serum creatinine levels at baseline.. In low-risk populations or community studies, the relationship between the level of ...

*  "Cigarette smoking and mortality. MRFIT Research Group" by Lewis H. Kuller, Judith K. Ockene et al.
METHODS. The relationship of cigarette smoking and smoking cessation to mortality was investigated among men screened for and also among those randomized to the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT). RESULTS. Among the 361,662 men screened for the MRFIT, cigarette smoking was an important risk factor for all-cause, coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and cancer mortality. These risks, on the log relative scale, were strongest for cancers of the lung, mouth, and larynx. The excess risk associated with cigarette smoking was greatest for death from CHD. Overall, approximately one-half of all deaths were associated with cigarette smoking. Among the 12,866 randomized participants, weak positive associations with duration of cigarette smoking habit and tar and nicotine levels were found with all-cause mortality. For both SI and UC men, substantial differences in subsequent CHD (34-49%) and all-cause (35-47%) mortality were evident for men who reported cigarette smoking cessation by the ...

To examine the relation between serum fatty acids and coronary heart disease (CHD), the authors conducted a nested case-control study of 94 men with incident CHD and 94 men without incident CHD who were enrolled in the Usual Care group of the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial between December 1973 and February 1976. After confirming the stability of the stored serum samples, the authors measured serum fatty acid levels by gas-liquid chromatography and examined their association with CHD. In all multivariate models, levels of the cholesterol ester saturated fatty acid palmitic acid (16:0) were directly associated with CHD risk (standardized odds ratio = 1.68; 95% confidence interval 1.10-2.55 in the model that adjusted for total plasma cholesterol level ...

*  Methods used to address fidelity of receipt in health intervention research: a citation analysis and systematic review | BMC...
The first aim of this review was to identify the frequency with which receipt, as defined in the BCC framework, is addressed in health intervention research. Only 19.6% of the studies identified from the forward citation search to report on fidelity were found to address receipt, compared with 33% in a recent review on clinical supervision [85]. Amongst the studies identified, 60.6% assessed receipt in relation to understanding (compared to 0-69% in other reviews [10, 14-17]) and 42.4% in relation to performance of skill (39-65% in other reviews [10, 14-17]). Strategies to enhance understanding were present in only 12.1% (0-79% in other reviews [10, 14-17]) and performance of skill in 21.1% of studies (50-69% in other reviews [10, 14-17]). These results suggest that there has been little improvement over time with regards to the frequency with which receipt is addressed in health intervention research and that there is a ...

In every system, there are children who do not access recommended immunisation in a timely fashion.9,10 There is a range of challenges for families in environments of poverty, including associations with sole parenting, certain ethnic groups, low health literacy, transport challenges, other costs to access services, and having other more pressing household priorities.9 Expanding access to healthcare services is well recognised as an effective mechanism for improving immunisation uptake.11 A systemic review on home visiting showed increases in immunisation coverage from 2 to 20% (median 13%).11 Home visiting interventions are resource-intensive, with adjusted cost-effectiveness ratios ranging from US$513 to US$13,020 per additional vaccination. Home visits are more likely to be most cost-effective when used as part of a multicomponent intervention.12. From this study, ~4% of children receive home vaccination (this varies per district from 0.7% to 14.8%), with an average time ...

OBJECTIVE: To test the early effects of a novel one-to-one health professional-delivered intervention designed to increase awareness and thereby promote early presentation of breast cancer among older women. METHODS: Women attending their final routine appointment in the English NHS Breast Screening Programme received a booklet or a booklet supplemented by a brief interview, in addition to usual care. This was a within-group before-and-after evaluation of the two versions of the intervention. The primary outcome was change in the knowledge of breast cancer symptoms from baseline to 1 month postintervention. Secondary outcomes were knowledge of risk of developing breast cancer, confidence to detect a breast change, and likelihood of disclosure to someone close. Levels of cancer worry and any adverse effects caused by the intervention were also monitored. RESULTS: One hundred seventy-six women received the booklet and 116 received the ...
