Study to Evaluate the Effect of Nicotinamide Riboside on Immunity

Intermittent caloric restriction or fasting has numerous health effects including the reduction in numerous cardiovascular disease risk factors. The cellular programs activated by caloric restriction are similarly turned on in preclinical studies in response to a 24-hour fast. We have found that a beneficial effect of 24-hour fasting is that ...

High Intensity Lipid Lowering Following Acute Coronary Syndromes for Persons Living With HIV

HILLCLIMBER is a randomized, controlled, open-label phase II trial of moderate dose statin therapy versus high-dose statin therapy in HIV-infected persons taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) who have coronary heart disease (CHD). All subjects will have an initial 2-week run-in period with pravastatin 40mg daily (Week 0 to 2). Subjects not ...

99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 Imaging for Carotid Atherosclerosis

The study is being done to assess the ability of the radiotracer 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 to image atherosclerotic plaque that may rupture and break off artery walls. This is caused by apoptosis or cell death in the plaque. These ruptured plaques can block blood circulation in the arteries causing a lack ...

Does Sildenafil Improve Endothelial Dysfunction in Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with a 2-fold increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is not explained by traditional cardiovascular (CV) risk factors alone; this risk is likely mediated in part through systemic inflammation. Indeed, RA itself is deemed to impart a CV risk equivalent to diabetes mellitus (DM). ...

Inflammatory Pathogenesis of Coronary Atherosclerosis in HIV

Survival in people with HIV has significantly improved with the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) but HIV+ people now experience an increasing burden of chronic diseases, including coronary atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD). HIV patients manifest an increased risk of CAD and its consequences possibly due to interplay of ...

Mobile Health Strategies for Veterans

Adherence to antiplatelet medications is critical to prevent life threatening complications (i.e., stent thrombosis); yet rates of non-adherence range from 21-57% by 12 months. Mobile technology through TM or mobile apps is a practical and inexpensive strategy to promote behavior change and enhance medication adherence. The three specific aims of ...

GLP-1 Loading During Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Angina is caused by narrowings or blockages within coronary arteries. Coronary angioplasty and stenting is performed for people with angina to improve the blood supply to the heart by placing metal tubes within the artery using balloon inflation. The procedure risks small but significant damage to the heart muscle downstream ...
