Cardiovascular Disease Risk factors in Canadian-born and Immigrant Children and Youth in the Canadian Health Measures SurveyDownload
Immigrants make up almost 20% of Canada’s population. Recent adult immigrants to Canada are generally in better health than those born in Canada. However, we know little about whether this is also the case in children. We compared mean levels and prevalence of adverse levels of CVD risk factors...
Rural residents face numerous barriers to health care access that have been postulated to result in decreased utilization and adherence to evidence-based medications. The objectives of this research were to examine cardiovascular medication use and adherence for rural versus urban patients with...
Characterization of a novel model of intestinal lipoprotein overproduction and the impact of N-3 PUFA supplementationDownload
Overproduction of intestinal chylomicrons (CM) has been proposed to contribute to fasting and post-prandial (PP) dyslipidemia and may accelerate the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) during obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and diabetes. However, the impact of morphological changes in...
Common Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor p.G116S Variant Has a Large Effect on Plasma Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Circumpolar Inuit PopulationsDownload
Dubé, Joseph B., Wang, Jian, Cao, Henian, McIntyre, Adam D., Johansen, Christopher T., Hopkins, Scarlett E., Stringer, Randa, Hosseinzadeh, Siyavash, Kennedy, Brooke A., Ban, Matthew R., Young, T. Kue, Connelly, Philip W., Dewailly, Eric, Bjerregaard, Peter, Boyer, Bert B., Hegele, Robert A.
"Background: Inuit are considered to be vulnerable to cardiovascular disease because their lifestyles are becoming more Westernized. During sequence analysis of Inuit individuals at extremes of lipid traits, we identified 2 nonsynonymous variants in low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR), namely...
Contributions to chronic disease prevention and control: studies among the Kivalliq Inuit since 1990Download
"A population-based health interview and examination survey of 8 Inuit communities in the Kivalliq region of Nunavut, Canada, during the early 1990s has resulted in an increased understanding of the burden and extent of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes and their risk factors such as genetics,...
Lower-extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a manifestation of atherosclerotic disease in the lower limbs. PAD is a risk factor for poor outcomes including myocardial infarction, stroke, and mortality. Despite the potential benefits of early PAD detection, in the majority of PAD cases...
Major depression (MD) is one of the most prominent medical conditions worldwide in terms of societal cost and morbidity. MD has been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and conversely CVD has been associated with increased MD symptoms. Previous studies have shown that...
Abstract: Objective To synthesise the literature on the effects of fish oil - docosahexaenoic acid ( DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid ( EPA) - on mortality and arrhythmias and to explore dose response and formulation effects. Design Systematic review and meta- analysis. Data sources Medline,...
Effects of High-Intensity Aerobic Interval Training on Cardiovascular Disease Risk and Health-related Quality of Life in Testicular Cancer Survivors: The HIITTS TrialDownload
Background: Testicular cancer (TC) survivors (TCS) are an understudied, high-risk group susceptible to late-onset treatment-related cardiovascular disease (CVD), psychosocial, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) deficits in the years following treatment. Importantly, despite having the...
McCarthy, G., Crichton, N.J., Linck, T., Seers, K., Titchen, A., Kitson, A., Edwards, R.T., Wallin, L., Hawkes, C., Estabrooks, C.A., Mockford, C., Cox, K., Harvey, G., Eldh, A.C., McCormack, B., Rycroft-Malone, G.
Background: Research evidence underpins best practice, but is not always used in healthcare. The Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) framework suggests that the nature of evidence, the context in which it is used, and whether those trying to use evidence are...
