The analysis found no benefit from vitamin D supplementation on MI, stroke, cardiovascular mortality, or all-cause mortality
Among patients with ulcerative colitis, more moderate use of strong opioids (one to three prescriptions annually) also significantly correlated with all-cause mortality
Those who drink 4 to 7 times weekly have a higher hazard ratio of all-cause mortality
. Even as there are other studies claiming the health benefits of alcohol, the researchers conclude that daily drinking, even at low levels, is detrimental to oneaACAOs health.
Editor's Note: According to the study authors, elevated resting heart rate has emerged as a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality and all-cause mortality
. "The HR [heart rate] of the majority of participants included in this meta-analysis was within normal range--the state where reducing heart rate is conventionally not a medical indication," they note.
Pfizer said the ATTR-ACT study showed tafamidis significantly reduced all-cause mortality
The primary endpoint of this study was all-cause mortality
, which was determined through the electronic medical records of the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University.
In contrast, patients aged 70 or older with treatment-resistant depression had a significant 17% lower risk of all-cause mortality
than had those with non-TRD major depression.
The all-cause mortality
rate in baseline hyperlipidemic women who later developed breast cancer was 27.4%, significantly lower than the 37.4% rate in normolipidemic women with breast cancer.
Stratifying by baseline participant age (comparing women aged 50-59 years with those aged 70-79 years), the HR for all-cause mortality
in the pooled cohort during the intervention phase was 0.61 (95% CI, 0.430.87), and during the cumulative 18-year follow-up, the HR was 0.87 (95% CI, 0.76-1.00).
According to the study, participants who drank at least four cups of coffee a day were at a 64 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality
than those who rarely or never had coffee.
However, as plasma urate is associated with a large number of confounders (12) that could potentially distort the association with cancer and all-cause mortality
, and as cancer itself can increase concentrations of urate through cancer-related cell death, these associations may have been subjected to confounding or reverse causation (13).
Sauna bathing, a popular activity in Finland, is associated with reduced risk of sudden cardiac death, fatal cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality
, according to a 2015 study.
