HOT TOPICS

  • Lifelong benefits on myocardial infarction mortality: 40-year follow-up of the randomized Oslo diet and antismoking study

    Lifelong benefits on myocardial infarction mortality: 40-year follow-up of the randomized Oslo diet and antismoking study

    Receiving advice about a healthy lifestyle led to a long-term reduced risk of coronary mortality during the following 40 years. The results from this study suggest that systematically providing effective counselling for a healthy lifestyle for 5 years can lead to lifelong benefits.

  • Avoidance of sun exposure as a risk factor for major causes of death: a competing risk analysis of the Melanoma in Southern Sweden cohort

    Avoidance of sun exposure as a risk factor for major causes of death: a competing risk analysis of the Melanoma in Southern Sweden cohort

    The longer life expectancy amongst women with active sun exposure habits was related to a decrease in CVD and noncancer/non-CVD mortality, causing the relative contribution of death due to cancer to increase.

  • The gut microbiota and metabolic disease: current understanding and future perspectives

    The gut microbiota and metabolic disease: current understanding and future perspectives

    Greater understanding of alterations of the gut microbiota, in combination with dietary patterns, may provide insights into how the gut microbiota contributes to disease progression and whether it can be exploited as a novel diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic target.

  • The development of the MRI linac system for online MRI-guided radiotherapy: a clinical update

    The development of the MRI linac system for online MRI-guided radiotherapy: a clinical update

    In this clinical update, the authors describe the development and the expected clinical impact of the UMC Utrecht MRI linac (MRL) system

  • HIV infection and bone disease

    HIV infection and bone disease

    Lifestyle measures to optimize bone health should be advised and, in individuals at high risk of fracture, treatment with bisphosphonates considered.

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus: still a challenge for physicians

    Systemic lupus erythematosus: still a challenge for physicians

    The most recently approved drug for SLE is belimumab, which blocks BLyS, and several new therapies and therapeutic strategies are in the pipeline for clinical application.

  • Genetics of parathyroid tumours

    Genetics of parathyroid tumours

    Genetic testing is available and of value in the clinical setting, as it helps in making the correct diagnosis and planning the management of these complex disorders associated with parathyroid tumours.
