SummaryBackground and Objectives Benefits and/or harms (including costs) of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) versus warfarin therapy need appreciation in relative and absolute terms. Methods Accordingly, we derived clinically relevant relative and absolute benefit/harm parameters for NOACs (apixaban, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, edoxaban) compared to warfarin from four clinical trials involving atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. For each trial, we tabulated patient numbers enduring four imp...

1. Infrared thermography (IRT) for detecting body temperature is less accurate in women, elderly people, and those with fever. 2. The core temperature significantly but weakly correlates to the IRT temperatures obtained from frontal and lateral of the face, and the forehead. 3. Among the three areas, the forehead IRT temperature showed the largest discrepancy and poorest correlation with the core temperature. 4. If IRT is used, the lateral maximum temperature of the face should be used. A cut-of...

Background Following the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak, remote-sensing infrared thermography (IRT) has been advocated as a possible means of screening for fever in travelers at airports and border crossings, but its applicability has not been established. We therefore set out to evaluate (1) the feasibility of IRT imaging to identify subjects with fever, and (2) the optimal instrumental configuration and validity for such testing. Methods Over a 20-day inclusive period, 176 s...

Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), also known as sartans, block the activation of angiotensin type 1 receptors and have a recognised role in the treatment of heart failure and nephropathy. Since 2002, there have been three major outcome trials of ARBs in hypertension. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the impact of ARB on major outcomes. Randomised controlled trials of ARBs in hypertensive subjects with an average follow-up of at least 2 years and at least 100 major cardiovascular even...

Background Whenever feasible, rhythm control of atrial fibrillation (AF) was generally preferred over rate control, in the belief that it offered better symptomatic relief and quality of life, and eliminated the need for anticoagulation. However, recent trials appear to challenge these assumptions.

The possible additive antiplatelet effects of aspirin and clopidogrel have been explored in the Clopidogrel in Unstable Angina to Prevent Recurrent Events (CURE) and Management of Atherothrombosis with Clopidogrel in High Risk Patients (MATCH) studies. To assess the overall absolute beneficial and/or harmful impact of aspirin and clopidogrel combination therapy compared with monotherapy with either drug, we analyzed the results from both trials in terms of number needed to treat per year. Treati...

Aims Since 2002, there have been five major outcome trials of statins reporting findings from more than 47 000 subjects. As individual trial results differed, we performed a meta-analysis to ascertain the effectiveness and safety of statins overall and in subgroups. The aim of the study was to estimate the effect of statins on major coronary events and strokes, all-cause mortality and noncardiovascular mortality, and in different subgroups. Methods PubMed was searched for trials published in Eng...
