Malignancy after heart transplantation: incidence, prognosis and risk factors
[Abstract] The Spanish Post-Heart-Transplant Tumour Registry comprises data on neoplasia following heart transplantation (HT) for all Spanish HT patients (1984–2003). This retrospective analysis of 3393 patients investigated ...
Performance of gene-expression profiling test score variability to predict future clinical events in heart transplant recipients
(BioMed Central, 2015-10-09)
[Abstract] Background. A single non-invasive gene expression profiling (GEP) test (AlloMap®) is often used to discriminate if a heart transplant recipient is at a low risk of acute cellular rejection at time of testing. ...
Clinical evaluation of rosuvastatin in heart transplant patients with hypercholesterolemia and therapeutic failure of other statin regimens: short-term and long-term efficacy and safety results
[Abstract] We conducted an observational study of 30 heart transplant recipients with serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) >100 mg/dl despite previous statin therapy, who were treated with rosuvastatin 10 mg ...
Validation of a clinical-grade assay to measure donor-derived cell-free DNA in solid organ transplant recipients
(Elsevier para American Society for Investigative Pathology and the Association for Molecular Pathology, 2016-10-07)
[Abstract] The use of circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) as a biomarker in transplant recipients offers advantages over invasive tissue biopsy as a quantitative measure for detection of transplant rejection and immunosuppression ...
Quinolone-related Achilles tendinopathy in heart transplant patients: incidence and risk factors
[Abstract] Background. A high incidence of Achilles tendinopathy—tendinitis or rupture—has been observed after quinolone treatment in lung and kidney transplant patients. In the absence of relevant published data, we aimed ...
Calidad de vida relacionada con la salud de los pacientes con insuficiencia cardiaca crónica sistólica en España: resultados del estudio VIDA-IC
[Resumen] Introducción y objetivos. La calidad de vida relacionada con la salud de los pacientes con insuficiencia cardiaca está afectada. Hay poca información sobre los factores clínicos asociados a esta mala calidad de ...
Role of NOD1 in heart failure progression via regulation of Ca2+ handling

Analysis of mitochondrial proteins in the surviving myocardium after ischemia identifies mitochondrial pyruvate carrier expression as possible mediator of tissue
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2016-01-01)
Safety of statins when response is carefully monitored: a study of 336 heart recipients
[Abstract] Background. Statins are used as first-line drugs against hypercholesterolemia after heart transplantation. Randomized clinical trials have shown that they reduce cholesterol levels, and the incidence of rejection ...
