Introduction We hypothesized that subclinical disruption in blood pressure (BP) dynamics, captured by lower complexity and higher variability, may contribute to dementia risk, above and beyond BP levels. Methods This prospective cohort study followed 1835 older adults from 1997 to 2016, with BP complexity quantified by sample entropy and BP variability quantified by coefficient of variation using beat-to-beat BP measured at baseline. Results Three hundred thirty-four participants developed demen...

Abstract Background and aims Familial dysbetalipoproteinemia (FD), characterized by remnant lipoprotein accumulation and premature cardiovascular disease, occurs in homozygous carriers of the APOE e2 allele, but genetic predisposition alone does not suffice for the clinical phenotype. Cross-sectional studies suggest that a second metabolic hit – notably adiposity or insulin resistance – is required, but the association between these risk factors and development of FD has not been studied prospec...

BACKGROUND Intracranial arterial stenosis (ICAS) is an important cause of stroke worldwide. Separate reports in Caucasians and Asians with stroke/transient ischaemic attack (TIA) have suggested lower ICAS prevalence in Caucasians, but there has been no direct comparisons of the two ethnic groups with the same criteria to define ICAS. METHODS Acute minor stroke or TIA patients in two cohorts respectively recruiting patients in Oxford (2011-2018, predominantly Caucasians) and Hong Kong (2011-2015,...

OBJECTIVE To determine secular trends in the number of doctoral degrees among medical doctors in the Netherlands, and assess their future career perspectives. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHOD Data on awarded doctoral degrees in the period 1992-2018 were acquired from all medical faculties in the Netherlands. For the 2008 cohort of graduates, I assessed 10-year career perspectives by determining their job affiliation and number of scientific publications in PubMed as of 2019. RESULTS The...
